The most authoritative way in which God reveals himself to us is through Scripture. Nature, the conscience, and non-canonical prophets are also important channels through which God communicates with us. Because of God’s irrepressible desire to communicate with us, however, his revelation confronts us constantly, in almost every situation. People have reported hearing God’s voice speak to them as they faced difficult decisions. Others have reported hearing God speak to them as they opened the Bible and their eyes fell upon verses that gave them immediate peace and comfort in their hour of need. In short, there is abundant evidence that that God seeks to reach out to humans with his message of love and concern in almost anyway he can.
