I am reading the book, Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard J. Foster. Each chapter focuses on a different discipline such as prayer, study, worship, and meditation among others. I would like to talk about meditation today and how we can use it to hear God speaking directly to us.
What is keeping us from listening and hearing God speak to us?
According to Foster, there are three major things that hinder our godly lives—noise, hurry, and crowds. How can we hear God talking to us if there is so much noise around us or we are always in a hurry? That got me to thinking about the times I’ve heard God talking to me.
