The Promises of God’s Written Word

Numbers 12:8: Face-to-Face

God speaks to prophets through visions and dreams (Numbers 12:6), but He talks face-to-face with Moses. He communicates directly with us, too—particularly through the Bible. As we read Scripture, the Holy Spirit might quicken a verse or passage to us to specifically guide, correct, or encourage us. Aside from the literal meaning and broad interpretation of the verse(s), we can glean a particular (that is, uncanny or “coincidental”) application to our circumstances. This could be God speaking, and we can ask Him to confirm this direct word to us through other means. But the first step to hearing from God involves consistently reading and listening.
