“Indeed, the Sovereign LORD never does anything until he reveals His plans to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 NLT
It is God’s nature to reveal Himself and His mysteries to us! Though in this life the best we will do is see through a veil, or through a glass dimly (1 Corinthians 13:12). Someday we will see face to face, and even then, we will spend eternity exploring the vastness of God’s beauty, glory and character. Still, we are told that the knowledge of His glory will cover the earth (Habakkuk 2:14), meaning many will see and know it before eternity!!!
There is something in God that makes Him want to reveal Himself and His plans to us. He told Amos that He does nothing without first sharing it with His prophets (3:7). Yes, today He is speaking a lot through His servants, the prophets. Amos also shared that God actually reveals His thoughts to man (4:13).
He revealed through Jeremiah that those who seek Him and ask, will receive great and unsearchable knowledge of things we could not have known (Jeremiah 33:3). Daniel told us that the God of heaven reveals secrets (Daniel 4::28). And Job told us that God uncovers the mysteries and even things hidden in darkness (Job 12:22).
Then, of course Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice (John 10:27). There was no, might hear or should be able to hear. No, He clearly said, “My sheep hear My voice…” God not only speaks, He wants us to hear and grasp what He is saying. Please understand that most of us will not hear His audible voice while walking on this planet. Though God speaks as a thunderous roar (Psalm 29), He more often speaks through a whisper or a wisp, through a thought or a picture in your mind, through a friend, through nature, through His word, through your emotions, through dreams, and usually through a sense of peace and/or conviction.
If you feel you are missing out, that you aren’t hearing His voice, or grasping the things God is revealing, ask Him right now to open the ears and eyes of your heart, to hear and see Him. Repent for saying that you can’t hear Him, reject that, and begin saying you will hear His voice. Take the time to learn how He speaks to you. Thank Him for speaking to you and ask for the grace to hear Him better. Ask Him for awareness of other ways that He has been speaking where you have been missing Him.
