Hearing God

Hearing God

How we interact with God’s Word has changed. It was only after the invention of the printing press in 1440 that Bibles became more available. This great blessing meant we could all have our own Bible to read whenever we wanted. Before this, people could only hear God’s Word when it was read at church. However, while personal reading is invaluable, we may miss out on some things. Firstly, there is no longer the need to meet together to learn about God. Secondly, listening stimulates the imagination and can enhance our ability to visualise scenes, potentially leading to stronger memory formation. The nation of Israel was told, “When all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing” (Deuteronomy 31:11). Paul said, “Give attention to the public reading of Scripture” (1 Timothy 4:13). If you are able go to church and hear God’s Word read or even listen to an audio Bible, do so, it may open your heart and mind to hearing God’s voice in a whole new way.
