Tête-à-tête with an Indian man

In my personal time with God this week, I got to thinking about a topic close to my heart – “Does God still speak to His people today as He did in Biblical times?” To my very core, I strongly believe so.

Now, I have had, in the past, a number of people who have said to me that they have never heard from God. While I don’t have an absolute answer why that is so, I may have a probable reason for why it does not happen.

In Acts 13, we see the Holy Spirit speaking to order the setting aside of Paul and Barnabas for the ministry. The passage reads as follows:

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting…..” I am convinced the closer we get to God the better we will hear from Him. Therefore worshipping, prayer and fasting should be as natural and as often in our lives, if we want to hear from our loving God, who still speaks today as He did in Biblical times.

It is my heart’s desire that 1Church be known as a Church that often prays earnestly, collectively and individually, just so that we may always hear from our wonderful and good Father.
