How Does God Speak?



How Does God Speak?
(June 2013 - Week 2)

(1). 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for
teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

(2). Psalm 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim
the work of his hands. 2Day after day they pour forth speech; night after
night they reveal knowledge. 3They have no speech, they use no words; no
sound is heard from them. 4Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their
words to the ends of the world.

(3). Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears
my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and
he with me.

(4). 1 Kings 19:11-12 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the
presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and
powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the
Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an
earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12After the earthquake
came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a
gentle whisper.

(5). “A man prayed, and at first he thought that prayer was talking. But he
became more and more quiet until in the end he realized that prayer is
listening.” [Soren Kierkegaard]

(6). Prayer thought: Since the creation of mankind, the Lord has spoken and
continues to speak through various means and methods. The Bible is
God’s Living Word, ever speaking relevant words to His people. Creation
and the heavens declare His glory and speak of His power and might
continually so that man cannot say that God is mute. God speaks gently in
a still and quiet voice to those who will listen.
