5 Stories From The Bible About Talking to God
Here are 5 great stories from the Bible about talking to God.
Draw Near to God – Hebrews 4
The author of Hebrews tells us that we can come to God and talk to Him in prayer, so “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). If you put your trust in the Son of God, you can have confidence that Father God will hear your prayers and you can “receive mercy and…grace” when you are in a “time of need.”
Powerful Prayers – James 5
Some of the most effectual prayers that I’ve heard are from people who have humbled themselves and confessed their faults to one another. James wrote “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16), and that righteousness is found only in Jesus Christ Who became sin for us so that we’d become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
God resists the proud but gives grace only to the humble (James 4:6), and we see that in 2 Chronicles where the prayer for his nation is, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). God’s grace flows downhill…to the humble of heart, and He will forgive our sins as a nation if we would only seek His face and turn from our wickedness.
Servants to Friends – John 15
Abraham was called a friend of God. Wouldn’t you like to have that same relationship with God? You can. Jesus Himself told the disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). Friends share what they know and Jesus shared what He knew about the Father.
A Friend of God – James 2
When we live in obedience to the Word of God, God’s ears are open to our prayers and we can talk to Him as we would a friend. James wrote of Abraham that “the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God” (James 2:23). What a privilege to come to God in prayer as we would talk to a friend.
Talking to God
Talk to God and He will talk to you through His Spirit and through His Word. That’s where His voice is heard most clearly, but talk to Him as you would a friend…only in a holy reverence, but talking to God is as easy as you reading this. Just talk to Him. He is listening.
You can talk to God any time, any place. Share these verses with someone you know who wants to learn more about talking to God!
