Would you like to receive mail from God? I would love that. A fax every morning? Or few text messages during the day? A snail mail letter once a week? An email at the end of the day? Wouldn’t that be something? Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. But we do get mail from God.
There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. (2 Tim. 3:15-17, MSG)
The Bible is our mail from God.
The Bible is our letters from home. That’s why reading it is so important. The Bible shows us the way to go. It exposes, corrects, trains us to live God’s way. How can it be? Because the Bible is the living word of God. The Holy Spirit speaks through it as we prayerfully read it. The more time we spend reading the Bible, the more we start hearing God’s guidance through it.
God has other ways of communication too.
Of course God uses other ways of communication too. God wants to speak to us and he uses creatively different ways to do do. He speaks through nature for everyone.
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans 1:20, NLT)
God also speaks through circumstances, people, culture. We just need to keep our spiritual eyes and ears open. The more time we spend with God in prayer, the easier it becomes to recognise God’s voice. If we earnestly seek God, he will make sure we will hear his voice. We will get mail from God.
Thank you for wanting to communicate with us and
sending mail to us in creative and unique ways.
Enable us to hear your voice clearly.
Let us see your work in and through us.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: How do you get mail from God?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you communicate with God!
