|We all make innumerable decisions on daily basis and we are oftentimes careful not to make those decisions in error. Many of the decisions are minor while some have far reaching effects on the individual making them, his family, ministry and sometimes the society. Unluckily, everyday it’s becoming increasingly difficult to live the Christian life and to make decisions that portray us as believers in God, His principles and standards for living as stated in the Bible. The world is getting crazier by the day. Things that were abominable many years ago are being accepted as societal norms in today’s world. Many people are confused and desperately in search of the ways to hear God assuredly in the midst of the confusion and cacophony of voices that speak so loudly particularly, through the media, entertainment and music industries. Many are confused and tend to ask questions: does God still speak to His people today? How can one hear His voice and follow His guidance in the midst of the confusions prevalent in this present generation?
Most of us believe the Bible that reports that God, in the cool of the day, conversed with Adam in the first garden as recorded in the book Genesis. We believe He told Noah to build an ark, in the midst of a warped up world of his era; we trust the records that affirm the He spoke to Moses and called him to go deliver His people from Egypt, in a burning bush and promised Abraham a son, after instructing him to leave his father’s house and his people to go to an unknown land. Even the account of Paul who heard His voice on the way to Damascus is well known and respected and referenced among believers. But does God still speak to people today? Does He still speak as frequently as He did to men of Bible days and to individuals, just like me? Can I truly hear His voice in my daily decision making? Well, many pastors and prophets confidently claim to hear God speak to them today. Is this claim real and genuine? If so, how do they hear Him speak? How can I understand when He speaks to me personally, inspite of all the noises and attractions around me? All these and many more questions would be thoroughly answered in this book.
