Can You Hear Me?

 
What does it take for us to hear God’s voice?  Are we prepared to listen?  He speaks through His word, through the preacher and through mature saints.  The friends and acquaintances we choose may play a role in the vehicle God uses?  God is preparing a word for us.  Here are my sister-in-laws’ thoughts on the matter.
God sends people into our lives for many reasons, and in many cases, it is in response to a need we have — whether it’s now, or yet to come. No relationship happens in the Kingdom of God by circumstance or without reason, whether it’s to provide friendship, help us through a season of difficulty, provide wisdom or inspire us to stand strong in our faith when we feel weak and unsure.
Throughout Scripture we are instructed to choose our friends wisely, because with godly friends comes godly wisdom — just when we need it most. 

Proverbs 9:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (NIV)

Proverbs 12:26a, “The godly give good advice to their friends.” (NLT)

Proverbs 13:20a, “Walk with the wise and become wise.” (NLT)
