Many prophetic words have come forth since the beginning of 2016 that indicate God will be communicating with us in ways in which we are not accustomed. How does The Lord of the Universe speak to us? Audibly, in our spirits, through other people, in His Word, creation, etc.
I heard a really wise man say the other day that if all of the scientists would consult the bible first as a basis their theories, they would be way ahead of the game by now! Why? God speaks to us in Genesis by revealing creation. Many other scriptures throughout the word confirm this form of communication. Each aspect of creation reveals His love language to us.
For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification],
I have been anxiously seeking these new avenues of hearing His sound. Much to my surprise, my new communication came in a form I never expected.
The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
I was out running one morning a few weeks ago, when Holy Spirit said that I would not be running my usual way. What I normally do is I listen to that still small voice that tells me when to run, when to walk, what route to take, and how far, etc. I prefer running with God’s plan for my exercise time and not a downloaded app or plan mapped out by some self-appointed expert. That morning I heard very clearly “Just listen to your body.” As I ran I was very much in tune with how much God wanted to speak to me in other ways, not just the ones I had become comfortable with. I felt as though He was saying that because He created our bodies, they speak His voice. When we are in tune with what is happening with our body (the signals that indicate pain, fatigue, energy bursts, etc) it is a built in God voice that we should not be ignoring.
1 Corinthians 6:20 [Full Chapter]
You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.
I am now much more in tune with the language that my body is speaking. You may already be accomplished in this area, but I was not. Being a counselor and being someone who learns by listening (not visual or hands on learning style), I have always been much more aware of my thoughts and my spirit and how God speaks to me through those avenues. I definitely was not listening to God as much as I should have been when it came to Him speaking through my body. You see I was the girl that had a cup of coffee if she was tired instead of honoring her body by taking a 15 minute nap instead. That has changed. I am also listening more closely to how much food my body needs and I have adjusted accordingly. That day, when God told me to run by listening to my body, I ran further than I had ever run without taking a walking break. He was showing me how powerful tuning in to the creation He made can connect me to His voice. After all, we are made in His image and carry His sound in our DNA.
So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.
What I have realized is that listening to my body is another way to honor Him by paying closer attention to the signals He has built into me.
How do you feel that God speaks to you most often?
Have you been hearing Him in a new way since the beginning of 2016?
