God Speaks, Are you Hearing Him?

 I was going through the archives on my computer when I came across this article and felt led to share. I hopes it bless and speak to you

A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord’s voice. The young man couldn’t help but wonder, “Does God still speak to people?”

After service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different ways. It was about ten o’clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, “God.. If you still speak to people speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey.”
As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought, stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said out loud, “God is that you?” He didn’t get a reply and started on toward home. But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk. The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn’t recognize the voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli. “Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk.” It didn’t seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk.
He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home. As he passed Seventh street, he again felt the urge, “Turn down that street.” This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection.
Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street. At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh. Half jokingly, he said out loud, “Okay, God, I will”. He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop.
He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in semi-commercial area of town. It wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed.

Again, they sensed something, “Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street.” The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep.
He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat. “Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid.”
Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the door, “Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something but if they don’t answer right away, I am out of here.”

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside. A man’s voice yelled out, Who is it? What do you want?” Then the door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and t-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn’t seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep. “What is it?” The young man thrust out the gallon of milk,”Here, I brought this to you.”
The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway speaking loudly in Spanish. Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had tears streaming down his face. The man began speaking and half crying, “We Were just praying. We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn’t have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some milk.”
His wife in the kitchen yelled out, “I ask him to send an Angel with some. Are you an Angel?” The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in the man’s hand.
He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face. He knew that God still answers prayers.’

-God is always talking; always speaking to us. If we could, for a while, just turn the music off….turn the television….off, turn off the world; we could hear him as a loving father speaks to his sons and daughter

Every Blessings,

  1. Just coming to Christ and trying to discern His voice, I’d experienced something similar. From Illinois on our way Arkansas, my friend’s car stopped. After all business was taken care of, we learned of who and where her car was towed to. We were given choppy directions and then was just plain lost after we’d at least made it to the town. I had a feeling that we were to turn into a gas station. There were four but once I felt the one we were supposed to go to, we did. My friend looked at me like, “what in the world?” I looked at her the same way.Lol I just thought I’d go in and ask about this guy who does personal tows. Guess what? By the time I got to the attendant to ask directions, the man I was looking for was behind me in line! Coincidence? I think not. After that, God spoke to me many times and it became more clear that it was His voice. I actually know He had been speaking all my life but I never paid any attention. I’m glad I finally opened my ears and heart. Love this post…and you thought you were a boring person. Lol lol lol

    1. Wow! That’s an testimony in itself, praised God! Even perhaps we could often tune out other voices, we could be able to pick up direction, advice and insight from God.
      Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Oh my goodness. This was so beautiful. Simple but beautiful at the same time. How can such a simple post carry such depth. More grace D’Dream aka Immanuel :). First time here on your blog and I’m adding it to my list. Nedoux linked this post to my site and I’m glad to be here. I wrote something similar but this is wonderful. Hmmn, God speaks, he really does, if only we can sit still and listen. We are always unto the next exciting thing whereas God loves patience and wants us to learn that in a world that seeks fast fast. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Immanuel,

    Oh, this brought tears of joy to my eyes, God is awesome and so real, thank you for sharing this.

    This is something I struggked wuth at some point in my christain journey, “hearing the voice of God”. I assumed that it would be a clear voice speaking into my ear, until I heard an inspiring message that explained that God speaks to us in various ways, could be through our thoughts or even through our conscience.

    Whenever I make a decision that gives me great peace, I know that I have listened to advice from God. 😀

    I just saw this article on my friend Immanuel’s blog. It was very inspirational and made me want to be more bold in my faith. God works in mysterious ways and this article does an excellent job at showing how He can work in our lives through simple acts of obedience. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did!
