Personally, God speaks to me
As I have made clear in this thread, I am referring to clear, direct, specifically worded answers from God in response to inquiries. Let me pose the same question to you that I posed to TB--does God communicate with you in the following manner?:
Bill, a Christian is praying to get into medical school. He says, "Dear Lord, you know the desires of my heart, I would like to go to Northwestern University Medical School. I pray for your help in being accepted. I know you know the desires of my heart. Nonetheless, I pray your will, not mine.
To which God responds: "I love you very much, Bill. I understand your desire to go to Northwestern, but it is not my will that you be accepted there. I want you to stay here for now, because you will meet the woman that I have destined to be your wife. In two years time, apply again, and if you do your part in studying diligently, I will guide the admissions process to get you accepted."
Or an alternative response from God. "Bill, I love you very much, but it is my will that you become a social worker. You will be more satisfied in that career, and I have plans for you to touch many lives. Don't pursue medical school any further as it will waste time that could be spent studying my Word and witnessing to others."
When was the last time God spoke to you like that?
