HEARING GOD SPEAK
By Henry Jaegers

In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel saw a dream and visions in his mind as he lay on his bed; then he wrote the dream down and related the following summary of it. (Daniel 7:1)

Have you heard God speak to you lately? There are many different ways that He speaks to us. For Daniel and John, he used visions and dreams to convey His messages. This particular dream took place in the second year of Belshazzar king of Babylon. Danielís personal experience during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar was truly a ďGod Speaking Experience.Ē

In the first six chapters of Daniel, the focus was on Danielís public ministry. In the following chapters beginning with chapter seven, the focus is on his private ministry. Another way of looking at it, in chapter 1-6 we see God speaking and working through Daniel. In Chapters 7-12 it is God working in Daniel, preparing his servant to relay matters yet to come. The message we have from these verses is that we are most effective in our public ministries when we spend sufficient time privately with God.

Notice how the dream motivated Daniel. First he wrote it down; (a good way to keep from forgetting). It also motivated him to share it with others. We are most motivated when we have someone to share Godís message with,

The most practical way of hearing God speak is when we take time to carefully digest His word each day. The more often we do this, the greater our hunger for His word will become.

Have you heard God speak to you today?
