I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalms 116:1-2 NIV
I know that I had the Bible sort of shoved down my throat when I was a child. I was so sick and tired of going to bible school that it took me years to go back into a church. Yet I always prayed to God. I have studied many different religions and am of the opinion that God is the same God in all of them just with different names and shapes. People can not understand or perceive God in his entire form. So it seems to make sense why there are different religions.
I work with people who are of different religions and having problems. If they were able to hear God's voice and advice it would change many peoples lives. I do work where things improve for them and it is always by connection through God and helping them to reconnect to the divine energies in their lives. Yet when I ask them if anything has changed most of the time I do not hear it has changed. I always have to state have things started to go better in the little ways. Just a day that goes right.
I have had multiple problems recently and yet I know God heard my voice. I was about ready to give up and two people showed up and helped me. I had lost my faith in what I heard and I was shown that I was right but I had ignored the voice of guidance and did things the hard way.
How many times do we ignore the things that happen because we want a big change and do not appreciate the progression of small changes that brings about the positive results where a big change can occur. I have had people act like I am supposed to be perfect and not have problems when I do have problems. I also have them get upset at me because they depend upon me.
I have had internet problems and other problems trying to live in a foreign country and most people do not even understand what that is like unless they have lived in another country. Yet God has heard my voice and shown mercy to me where people help me.
Look at your lives and see if the little things have been moving you towards the good things. The love of your life, a good job, a better place to live. Maybe most people are to impatient and try to shape and control their life instead of giving it over to the command of the divine so he can shape it in the best way. It may mean there are rough times before a good result happens but good results always happen once you do the decisions in the best way and remove the expectations of everything and everyone being perfect. Nothing is perfect except the divine.
