Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
In Scripture we read of many times when people hear from God in dramatic ways; but most of the time, the voice of God is soft and subtle. Please do not miss His voice by assuming it must be loud and dramatic.
Very often we come to God with rather dramatic questions: "Is this the person I should marry?" Or, "Is that the life vocation you desire me to choose?" How convenient it would be for us if God would simply write His answer in the clouds. How we long to hear an audible voice, or see a stroke of lightning that etches His directions upon a tree.
Most certainly God knows everything and He wants us to come to Him with our questions. But God is not interested in simple convenience. He wants us to know Him as our friend and Lord. He desires that we know Him well enough to learn to hear His still, small voice, even when it is as gentle as a whisper. True friendship is never quick or convenient. We must work at it over a long period of time.
Perhaps God's message for you will become evident in a deep study of His Word. Perhaps you will hear it in the wise counsel of a friend. Perhaps it will emerge through long, searching times of prayer and fellowship with Him. He wants us to know Him well and to love Him deeply. The Holy Spirit helps us do that.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
