Living Aware

God speaks to me in a multitude of ways, but I haven’t always heard His voice.

During my younger teen years I thought God was done with me. I hadn’t heard His voice but kept being told God speaks. This made me feel like God didn’t want to reach me because I couldn’t hear Him. After years of growth and hardship I now look back and realize I was plugging my ears to what God had to say. I didn’t want to change my ways! I wanted to live how I wanted to.

When I surrendered my life to God I began to hear His voice through scripture. I’ll never forget the night I came home from youth group and I cried out to God with tears sliding down my cheeks. My bible, which was on the edge of my end table, fell open to Jeremiah. I picked it up and read the scripture that my eyes shot straight to.

The verse was “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” “O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!” The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!””
Jeremiah 1:5-8

I wept when I read this. I was believing so many lies and in that moment, God set me free.

Because I surrendered my life to God, I began to hear from Him. It started as reading Bible verses that hit home and then more supernatural things started to happen. Years later, of growing in my faith, I began to have visions. I began to have dreams. I began to have feelings impressed on me from God.

Now, God and I speak everyday through prayer. And now I am aware of His voice.

Because God is always speaking…
