revelation

Monday, March 18, 2013

I am typically more of a ‘general revelation’ type of person. In fact, if you’ve spoken to me in the past about how to know if God is speaking to you, I’ve probably given you three or four things – 1) study the Bible, 2) listen to godly advice, 3) look at how the circumstances are playing out and 4) pay attention to the inner peace God will give you regarding a situation.

So it’s a bit unusual when I write today that that scary, weird, amazingly wonderful weekend at Created to Connect, God spoke a WORD straight to me. It just usually doesn’t happen to me that way. If you’re not a follower of Jesus, fair warning: this is gonna sound a bit odd. Actually, if you are a follower of Jesus, it might still sound odd.

Even while I share this, I know that I’m not quite ready to go public with what I feel God’s been telling me. Not out of fear, but more out of a sense of preciousness. Like the truths that I’m turning over in my heart need to be held close for awhile longer. Which just makes this a whole tantalizing tease of a post, yes? The thing that I just wanted to record is this: God is speaking to me. I know it with everything in my being.

Here’s the audience participation part, though…do you think God speaks to you? Have you ever had an experience where you knew it was Him, speaking directly to you? Or is usually a accumulation of different things that you feel are leading you towards what God is saying? I’m definitely not saying one is preferable over the other – I’m just curious to know other’s experiences with this.

If you don’t believe in God or even if you do, but you don’t think He’s active in your daily life, does it weird you out to think of people ‘hearing something directly from God’? I can imagine this sounds crazy-cakes to some of you. I’m eager to hear your perspective too.
