I hope we’ve been able to put some of the doubt about hearing from God behind us. If this is new to you, here’s an idea on how to start. Set some time aside and find a quiet place to be alone with God. Thank Him for loving you and ask Him to join you right here, right now. Call on Jesus. Open your heart to whatever He may want and put aside any agenda you might have. Ask Him to remind you of a scripture. Find that specific verse and then memorize it. Pray for God to show you who to share this verse with. In the next few days you’ll see God present you with an opportunity.


I’ve suggested this exercise here before and have heard some great stories that came of it. If we will meet Him and be faithful in the little things we’ll see Him do the amazing. The results of this exercise will be having heard from God, knowing that He heard you and building trust and intimacy. As we’ve said before, there’s nothing better.

Impassibility is a controversial attribute among Christian scholars. What it means is that God does not suffer and those that adhere to this characteristic would say that because of His aseity, the fact that He doesn’t need us, He therefore must not suffer. I sure don’t want to argue with scholars but the questions that come to mind on this for me are about Jesus. Did Christ suffer more than we can imagine? Is Jesus God? Is Christ always God? Answering these questions with yes, yes and yes leads me to believe that God knows suffering and can relate to all that we go through. It seems like an exercise of His sovereignty that He chose to suffer for us.
