You may be reading this blog because you first read the blog "What God said tonight" at www.whatgodsaidtonight.blogspot.com . What God said tonight is one example of how God can speak directly to us but there are many other ways that God speaks to us, including through the Bible, preachers, worship, circumstances and other ways that we will discover.
Before we get into how to hear God, we need to know why we should even care to hear from God. Learning to hear from God is important for many reasons. Maybe the greatest reason to hear from God is to have a relationship with him. Can you imagine having a relationship with someone who you never listen to, you only tell things to them. Imagine having a friend who never wanted to hear what you said and just constantly came to you to tell you what they needed or wanted. Maybe you have had friends like that. Those friendships don’t usually last very long. It is hard to have a relationship that is all one sided. When we learn to hear from God, we begin to have a relationship instead of a religion. We begin to know God for ourselves.
Through getting to know him, we learn how to live this life better. Who better to get advice from that the God of all creation? Who better to get answers from than the God that created every question and every answer ever? On this site you will:
