In Christianity we talk a lot about having a personal relationship with God, but genuine relationship is impossible without a two-way conversation. In order to know God for yourself, you need to hear God’s voice.
It’s been said that when we talk to God, we’re ‘praying’, but when he talks to us, we’re crazy. Personally, I think it’s far crazier for us to pray without expecting God to speak back. Since the beginning of time, God has been a communicating being. When we choose to follow him, God gives us the Holy Spirit who speaks to us wherever we are. The challenge is learning to discern God’s voice above the others we hear. Although he longs to reveal himself in a personal way, human frailty means we can get it wrong. The good news is that Jesus himself said his people would be able to recognise his voice, and having recognised it we could follow (John 10:27).
