Did a people ever hear the voice of God speaking from the midst of fire, as you did, and live? (Deuteronomy 4:33)
Sometimes, we have an understanding that God is far away from us. He is from a distant; however, it’s not the case. Truthfully, God is closer to us than we think. He sent His Son, Jesus, into our world. He walked our roads and spoke personally to men, women, and children. Christ established His Church and He is with all of us until the end of time. God speaks to us at all times, especially in prayer. Prayer is a conversation with God. When we pray, there should be no doubt that God hears our prayers. We should also listen, because a good conversationalist is also a good listener. There is great comfort in prayerful conversation. Even when we are in distress. God is at our side. His love for us is without question.
Have you ever felt that God had spoken to you, and if so, what was it like?
Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Wait a minute! God also speaks to us in silent. All you need to do is to turn off all of your electronic devices and BE STILL.
Our Blessed Mother Mary was a good listener, may she intercede for us. Hail Mary full of grace…
Peace in Christ,
