When we read of God conversing with Abraham, Moses, Aaron and others we do not think He still speaks with us today, yet many have heard His still small voice and it is confirmed in the following passage! (Hebrews 3:7-9). Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Sometimes if overwhelmed we may lose sight of the close presence of God, we may even ask where are you Lord? But He who seems distant at times is never too far away for He does not go against His written word that we will never be forsaken and nothing will overtake us that He is not with us through it! (Isaiah 43:1-4). But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.
Whosoever hears Him and finds Him will find life and favor, yet who sins against Him wrongs his own soul. (Proverbs 8:32-36). Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
On the road to Damascus Saul surely saw a great light and was spoken to yet saw no man when Jesus spoke to him. Many have had a similar experience and are not believed to this day as they too say they had a Damascus experience with the Lord! (Acts 9:3-8).
