Many people ask me how God speaks to us. They say, “I want to hear from God. Does He speak in an audible voice? Does He come in the night and whisper in my ear? Will He speak through some animal or write on the wall like He did in the Old Testament?” They don’t realize that God has been speaking to them since they were born, and He is still speaking to them now. He speaks to them through the thoughts, ideas, and visions they keep having in
If you are unclear about your vision, you can ask God to reveal to you the deepest desires He has placed within you.
Some people call psychic hotlines to get others to tell them their futures. The sad thing is that some Christians do nearly the equivalent of this when they run from meeting to meeting, asking people to prophesy over them concerning their futures, not understanding that God has given them their visions directly.
A prophet can confirm your vision, but he or she will not give you your vision. God gives you that directly, and He reveals it to you as you listen to Him and follow Him. God says, “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts” (Jeremiah 31:33).
Again, one way to discern whether something is a vision from God is to determine whether you have a real desire to do it or merely a passing interest in it.
Father, I am so grateful that You are a God who speaks directly to His people. Thank You for speaking to me through Your Holy Spirit, through Your Word, and through the ideas and dreams You have given me. I want to use them to Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: A prophet can confirm your vision, but he or she will not give you your vision; God gives you that directly.
