Hello World….Talking to God

Question:   Why is that when you talk to God, you are praying, But when He talks to you, you’re crazy?

The bible is full of examples of God speaking to His people and His people speaking back to Him. So why is it that some times when I tell someone that God talks to me, they look at me funny and say, “Aw, you are crazy.”?

The very first moment He saved me, He spoke to me and I will never forget what He said to me. “I will never leave you nor forsake you; you are mine and I AM yours, forever.”  His voice has not changed since the first time I heard Him. There were times when Father and I were at odd’s about something He told me to do and His voice took on a stern and warning tone, but His love never failed nor faltered toward me.

You mean to say that you argued with God?    Well, yes, one time we got into a very heated argument and He told me to calm down and do what He asked me to do and I would see a change in circumstances….but I did not think He was doing it fast enough to suit me so I stomped my foot and said, “NO! I will do it my way and it will get done sooner”.   He allowed me to do it my way and it did not get done sooner.   I went around that mountain several times before I learned my lesson. I got into all kinds of trouble trying to work it out, get it done, make it happen.

When all is said and done, He takes good care of it — and everything I did in those months turned to ashes and dust.   I ended up in all kinds of trouble over a stupid decision I made without His help.  Took me years to recover from that one…Several times I tried to work it out on my own. NEVER worked out for the good. As I grew older and wiser, I learned that whatever needed done, if  WE  did it together – it always worked out for the best for everyone.

Youth has it’s advantages sometimes….But age with wisdom  gets you peace that passes understanding, happiness that comes with inner joy, godliness with contentment.
