The Speaking Voice
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and theWord was God.” (KJV)This week we are looking atThe Speaking Voice of God.Does God still speak today? I would agree with Tozer as he shouts a resounding“Yes”!When pondering this issue of God’s speaking, it is important to understand howto hear His voice.

Psalms 33:6, 9“By the word of the L
the heavens were made,and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.”
“For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.” (NKJV)

creation into existence.So when you see the heavens above and the earth and seas below, you stand inawe at the power of His Word.
Hebrews 11:3 “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” (NKJV)
