God used to talk directly with the human race. There are multiple examples of these conversations in the Bible, but is it still possible to talk to God today?
You’re talking to God any time you pray. The Bible has a lot to say about prayer, but here are three key takeaways.
- God wants you to talk to Him because He loves you.
- God promises to hear you and will answer your prayers.
- Understanding why you are able to talk to God is most important.
We can speak directly to Him because of what Jesus Christ did for us. There was a barrier between God and His people. The Bible tells us, “It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, He has turned away and will not listen anymore” (Isaiah 59:2).
When Jesus died on the cross, He got rid of the barrier between God and us. All you have to do is accept that gift and give your life to Jesus. Then, the gap between you and God disappears and you can talk to Him like an honored guest before a king.
The Bible says, “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most” (Hebrews 4:16). Talk to Jesus today, and ask Him to come into your life—then confidently enter God’s throne room and share what’s on your mind.
Heaven is full of answers to prayers that were never asked. There are no limits to prayer. God can hear you from any location and any language. Lean on the promise of God, receive His Son as your Savior, and then tell Him about everything in your life. By Billy Graham
