Why Doesn’t God Speak to Me?

Many people ask God to speak to them and are disappointed when God doesn’t speak. But the problem isn’t God’s lack of communication, it is often our expectations about how God communicates. God has spoken to all of us. This video discusses some various ways that God speaks, including the most important way: Through his Son, Jesus. Hebrews 1:1-3 says, “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being.” What does the Son of God express to us? The Son of God dying on the cross is God’s communication to you about the depth of his love. Even if God never said anything else to you, he has already spoken to you in the most powerful way possible in his sacrifice.

Where Is the God of Miracles Today?

The Bible is full of miracles. Some people wonder why they aren’t seeing God do miracles today. Just because you haven’t seen a miracle doesn’t mean God isn’t doing miracles today. God is doing miracles today. This video discusses some possible reasons you may not have seen a miracle, and what our attitude toward miracles should be.

Not included in the video, but relevant to the subject, is a calculation I did regarding miracles. In the video I mention that I believe God will do more miracles in the next 24 hours than all the miracles mentioned in the Bible. Starting with an approximate number of miracles mentioned in the Bible at 160, I calculated how many miracles that would be during the span of an average lifetime of 80 years. 160 miracles per day for 80 years = 4,672,000 miracles during a human lifetime of 80 years. Dividing the approximate number of people on earth (7.5 billion) by this number gives us one miracle for every 1,605 people. So if God is doing 160 miracles per day, only one person out of 1,605 is going to experience a miracle in their lifetime. This may help a skeptic understand why they have personally not seen a miracle even though God is doing many miracles all the time.
