God is True because I had actually talked to Him

Yesterday, somebody asked me about how do I talk to God. I told him that I talk to God through praying and one way that God speaks to me is through my Bible. God answers me literally on what I should do, He comforts me or even make things clear for me through it.

Then he asked, "What if you will open the verse wherein Peter hanged himself?". (he said Peter ^_^)

I believe that the Bible is full of symbols. That is why we need to pray and ask God for wisdom so that we can understand it. Each verse that we can open from the Bible when we are praying will give us a personal message. It is not us who is interpreting it. It is through God's wisdom that we will be able to understand it, like as if God is talking directly to us.

I would like to share a verse that I had received when I prayed to God before I left my country. This verse gave me comfort and assured me that it is really His plan for me to leave.

"But now don't be discouraged, any of you.
Do the work, for I am with you.
When you came out of Egypt,
I promised that I would always be with you,
I am still with you, so do not be afraid."
- Haggai 2:4-5
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I really believe that the verses that I had read when I was praying that directly answered my prayers are not coicidence. And honestly? It is actually fun because I am like having a chat session with God. ^_^

Just want to support your post with a verse in Scripture:

Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name,Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.- Jeremiah 33:2-3

God speaks to us and He answers when we speak to Him.

...

Another thing, I just noticed this phrase: Then he asked, "What if you will open the verse wherein Peter hanged himself?".

Peter did not hanged himself, it was Judas who did it. hehe..

I believe that scripture was a direct response from God. Absolutely, God will answer us through His Word. It really is amazing the way it works!

Not only does God speak through His word we have the Holy Spirit who lives inside us and guides us and is with us every day. Jesus called the Holy Spirit, counsellor, teacher and the spirit of truth. See John 14:15-31.

PS. Thank you for all your posts on my little ole blog!

I too believe God answers us through the Bible... He has done so many times for me... and if I didn't quit understand what He was telling me He would direct me to another part of the Bible till I did understand. Very good post Paige. God Bless You

Thank you for your replies!

The Bible is really amazing and I love my Bible so much. I believe that it is a medium of my communication to God.

and same here MaryLou, God would direct me to another verse that will help me understand His message more.

More blessings to you Brothers and Sisters!

I once slipped a coin believing God would guide me. I believe he did. :-)
