Hear with Your Heart

God speaks to all of His children. Love must communicate. The Father above loves all of His children. When God speaks, love speaks to our hearts. He has things to say to each one. His love is personal and intimate with all who believe. "For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God's children" (Romans 8:16, NLT).

The poet wrote of God speaking to his heart: "And He walks with me and He talks with me; and He tells me I am His own; and the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known." God communicated His love to the poet, but He also speaks to you, through the Holy Spirit. It is a voice not known to the ears. Yet, a voice that is so real to your heart.

The Holy Spirit speaks through Scripture, God's love letter to every believer. The Holy Spirit inspired the words of Scripture centuries ago, but He still speaks through it. Those who believe not, can only read printed words on paper. Believers read words that speak to their hearts. The still quiet voice of the Spirit of the living God speaks with love and gentleness.

The Holy Spirit speaks to the hearts of all God's children. He shares God's thoughts. They are eternal thoughts from the Father above. Thoughts that encourage us, console and comfort us. His thoughts strengthen us and assure us. That's how God speaks.
