Monday, July 22, 2002 AD Hearing God I'm always nervous about attributing an "inner voice" message as being from God. Maybe it's because I have known people who think that they hear God all the time, including one friend who is sure God told her the name of her guardian angels. Uh huh. But there have been a few times when I really do think I've "heard" Him. Here are two:
1) I was once, 13 or 14 years ago, praying that I would be able to hear Him more in a different sense -- that I would have more wisdom in making certain kinds of decisions. And the "answer" was, "Do what I've already told you to do, then I'll tell you some more." I remember being caught off-guard enough by the impression that I laughed out loud. Laughed because the message was so simple and obvious, and delivered in a "tone" that was perfectly matter-of-fact, yet somehow lighthearted.
2) I don't remember the context of this one, but I once heard, "Never be afraid to hear Me say I love you." That was in a much sterner, though by no means harsh tone.
So whaddaya think? Am I a flake or is this normal Christian experience?
