We talk about the need for a personal devotional life. Interaction is what’s important. Both prayer and time in God’s word are most effective when it’s a two-way street. We must listen as well as speak. Only then do our devotions become the cornerstone for vibrant spiritual growth. God still speaks to His people, and learning to walk in intimacy with Him as a daily discipline increases the likelihood of hearing His voice.
Our life is never the same once we’ve heard God speak, especially when He does so in a way that addresses our personal circumstances. It changes us like nothing else can. And what’s great is that God wants to speak to us time and again as a natural part of a life built on closeness with Him. Have you sensed God speaking to you? If not, set yourself squarely in His path. You’ll hear Him!
