I think one option on the poll should have been:

Your conscience
or Perhaps
Little voice you hear when your about to do something wrong.

You know the one that says, "are you sure that you really want to do that" of course we normally would ignore that one and do what we want too anyway. But if you learn to listen to it and be open to it you might be amazed at what could happen.

I was thinking that at Christmas time when God told us how much he loved us with the birth of his Son that it would be interesting to see how God speaks to each of us.

I would love to hear your experiences of hearing God also.


Interesting that you didn't add "through the preaching of the Word" as one of your options. You also don't have the sacraments (baptism and communion).

I was thinking more along the lines of miraculous occurrences. I love hearing about God moving miraculously. Gets me stoked!!!

But God doesn't have to move miraculously in order to speak.
Remember, He was in the still, small voice that spoke to Elijah and not in the earthquake.

I think God can talk to you in all of the above options.

That still small voice is still miraculous. Especially when he confirms prophetic words. Remember I go to the Vineyard. We live there!

Tell me your miracles people!!!

I have seen a lot of miracles, but none of them had to do with God (or Satan for that matter). I still remember the 18 year old who had been in the hospital for over a week and they could find nothing wrong with him. His mom kidnapped him and brought him to my house so he could see my master herbalist. It took two of us to get him up the stairs, he was in such rough shape. My master herbalist diagnosed him as having a lack of Vitamins A & D (cod liver oil). I saw him back at work a week later. That was a miracle.

in my opinion things that don't exist can't talk.

i.e. santa, god, the tooth fairy, carle rove, easter bunny ect ect ect

I would really like to hear you guys tell me how God has spoken to you. I will give you an example that happened to me a couple months ago.

I was lying in bed and thinking about tithing. Our church encourages us to tithe. I used to tithe but with two little boys and extra expenses I found it hard to. As I lay in bed I started praying and asked God to help me tithe. All of a sudden I heard God say in my minds eye to tithe on the amount of money left over in my bank account after I had payed my expenses out of my latest paycheck. I thought to myself "hey that sounds easy". God then said that if I was faithful in doing this that he would bless my faith and make it possible to have a full months expenses in the bank when I got my paycheck, thus allowing me to thithe on the full amount.

The next day at church i was sitting there listening to the music when Pastor George sat down beside me. He told me that God had told him that I had received a word from God that I was to give to the church.

I blurted out in shock "he did"! Then I remembered the word on tithing he had given me the night before. After the band finished I got up and gave this prophetic word to the church.

If God is Omnipotent, why does he have so much trouble hanging onto money?
