How God Answers

Job 33:13-14
Why do you complain to him that he answers none of man’s words? For God does speak – now one way, now another – though man may not perceive it.

Is there a proper way for God to communicate with us?

God communicates however he wants. He knows our limitations, and he knows how to get our attention.

We think we’re “all that”, but we’re wrong. God is “all that” and more.

We think God hides from us and won’t answer because he’s finicky. God isn’t at fault. We’re the ones who get picky about when and how God speaks. We want his answer on our timetable. And if we don’t like his answer, we get mad and hide from him.

We think our prayers are holy enough to make God do what we ask, but God shakes his head and answers us anyway. I’m pretty sure we are the ones who need to work on our communication skills.

We should probably read through the book of Job to get an education about God’s great love for us – and our great limitations in understanding God.
