Hearing God’s Voice

A friend sent me one of the email chain stories today. This was about a young man who had been to Bible study where they talked about how God still speaks to us today. He got in his car and prayed for God to speak to him and that he would listen and try to obey.

It goes on to tell about a thought he had to do something which made no sense and that by actually doing it anyway, he became the answer to someone’s prayer.

Then it said this:

Sometimes it's the simplest things that God asks us to do that cause us, if we are obedient to what He's asking, to be able to hear His voice more clear than ever. Please listen, and obey! It will bless you (and the world).

I think all along I’ve thought about this backwards! I kept waiting for God to tell me clearly and completely exactly what to do and then many times ignored the little intuitions, thoughts and urges because they didn’t seem to mean anything or seem to come from Him.

This tells me if we follow those thoughts, the outcome from our actions can be God’s voice shown clearly to us!
