A Note from God

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path
— Psalm 119:105

There are a lot of people today who say they hear the voice of God telling them to do this or that. I’m not here to judge anyone if they really heard God’s audible voice or not. But I want to remind you that God will never contradict His Word. He always will lead us according to what the Bible says. So, if you think you hear God telling you something and its contrary to His Word, then you didn’t hear God.

Some people come up with some lame concepts, like "We're not married, but God has told us it's okay to have sex." I could assure them that God didn't say that because in His Word, He says, "You shall not commit adultery" (Exodus 20:14). God won't contradict His Word.

Have you ever anxiously waited for an expected letter that you just couldn’t wait to get and open? You stand at the window, waiting for what seems like an eternity for the mail carrier to come by. Finally, he drives up, and you run over to your mailbox. You're looking for that letter. Maybe it's from someone you're in love with. Maybe it's an answer to a job application. Maybe it's something you ordered in the mail. Maybe you've won the sweepstakes. Ha ha!

But imagine this. What if you had a handwritten note sent to you from God? Would you carry it around in your pocket for a couple of weeks and open it when you got around to it? I doubt it. You probably would tear it open as you're thinking, Wow, God spoke to me! What does He have to say?

I like to think of the Bible as a written letter from God. A lot of us carry it. We have it in different colors and sizes. We have it in different translations. Some of us even have it on our smartphones or tablets. But we never read it. Yet it's a letter from God to us. If you want God to speak to you, then open His Word. God Bless!
