Lord, Speak?

How many times have you prayed this prayer:

“Lord, speak?”

I know I’ve asked that question a few thousand times in my life.
And a lot even recently as I’m trying to figure out His plan for my life.

I was doing some reading and studying in the word the other day,
And something hit me square between the eyes.
It’s called Hebrews.

Can I just type this out for you?

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory, and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited as superior to theirs.” – Hebrews 1:1-4

God has spoken. And still speaks.
He spoke thru the prophets in the old, and now he speaks thru Christ.
Want to keep digging?

If we want to know Christ and hear Him speak, we must read his word; after all, He is the word.
John 1:1 anyone?

So, all this to be said: If we want to hear the Lord speak; we need to have our bible open and ready.
We can know Christ more and hear Him speak if we just read the word.
It’s really that easy, and that hard.

So, the next time I pray for the Lord to speak to me in a special way,
I’d better have my bible open.

    Darn right! I believe that the Holy Spirit will speak to us outside of just reading Scripture and He’ll guide us in a lot of ways… but we better have our Bibles ready to check and delve into because it’s easy to be deceived without that firm, solid, primary foundation.

      Amen. Weigh everything against scripture. God will never tell us something that goes against His word.
