God speaks to us many ways:  through the Bible, through impressions, through emotions, dreams, and many other ways.  You can't limit God or the way He speaks. He still speaks to His people.  But some people may say "Why don't I hear from God? Why isn't God speaking to me?"  In this message, Pastor Rod Loy looks at some possible answers to those questions.

God is speaking.  God wants you to listen for and hear His voice.  God wants you to know Him and His plan for your life.  If you are ready and willing to listen, you can hear Him.  But how does God speak?  Is it a booming voice from the heavens?   He actually uses several different ways to speak to us.

We know that God spoke to people in Bible times.  What if God spoke to us in our every day lives?  What if God wants to tell you something - personally, individually, specifically, just for you?  Is that possible?  What if God is actively speaking to His people and would speak to you?  Would you like that?   How does God speak to us today, and how can we listen?

Can one person make a difference?  In the Bible, and in our lives, we can see how one person, who is dedicated to a cause, can change the world.    If we don't do anything, will it stop God's plan?  No, but it would rob us of the chance to be involved in what God is doing.

A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately complicated way to perform a simple task.  It is a chain reaction that starts with something simple.  We can all be part of God's process.  We are a strategic link in a chain reaction that can and will touch and change the world.
