What If Its God Speaking

Updated on January 14, 2022

OKAY, I KNOW some people do not believe in God.

But I am aware that the rest of us do believe in a Supreme Being or the Creator of Everything who we will call God.

Although, I also know that some of those who do believe (in God), might be believing in their own version of God. And so to be on the same plain here, let us define God as the Creator.

And now let us not leave out those who feel that they aren’t or can't be sure if there is a God or not.

So we can add those people who falls in between the cracks of those categories we came up with above and include those who do take this point of view (because of our limited comprehension, we cannot be sure if there is a God who is without limit).

And even add to all this, those who are thinking that if there was even a God, we aren’t sure if that one All-Knowing, All-Powerful, One-and-Only God would ever be concerned about me, much less speak to me. Yes, like in "Who Am I Anyway?"

I made a simple chart so we can see where we might fall in, not to scale and not to be precise as there could be many other sub-categories and other categories I haven’t taken into consideration.

So those in yellow are the ones who aren’t sure if God is concerned about them or speaks to them be it if they believe that there is a God or if they aren’t even sure if there is a God.

But think about it, if there is a God who created all things and who created us and that same God is concerned about all of his creation, including us, wouldn’t it be alright to think that that God would be speaking to us, even speaking to us every minute, every second of the day, every day? Okay, at least trying to speak to us, not that we are ever listening that is or even know how to listen.

And what if that is so, which is possible especially in this day and age where everything is possible anyway, then do you think that God spoke to me while I was lying down on the dentist chair this morning and with my eyes closed, my mouth wide open, my mind trying to think of a happy thought, my arms folded, my right leg slightly on top of my left leg and my left hand clutching my right forearm and my right hand gripping a piece of tissue paper?

I do know that when you are in situations such as this, any dentist working on your teeth do seem like he (or she) is God. And don’t you just hate it when your dentist just keeps on talking and talking and may sometimes be even asking you questions half-expecting you to respond when he or she know full well that you cannot utter a coherent phrase, worst you are horribly terrified sometimes half to death and pretending to look cool and trying hard not to look so nervous or pass out.

Well the concept of God does that to many people.

I mean the idea or the concept or even the mere mention of God terrifies some people. So much so that some people do not want to even be certain or be persuaded that there is a God. And for those who do think that there might be a God, they try to sweep God under the rug and think of him as an absentee landlord who cares not a thing about them. And I know first-hand what an absentee landlord is like as I used to live in an apartment with a landlord who collects the lease every month like clockwork but expects us to fix everything that ever happens to the place—his way of telling us, you want to live in this dump, then pay up, fix up, shut up or move out.

Going back to my dentist, no he isn’t a mean terrible person.

He’s just your normal average neighborhood dentist. But for today, as I was gingerly sprawled there on his fully reclined chair and after he was finished working on my teeth—after everything was said and done, mostly by him to a motionless me, he finally said something that made me think that, yes Virginia, there might be a God and He might just be speaking to me right this very minute.

And this was when after I had my teeth x-rayed, prepped, cleaned, buffed and more.

He then tells me, “There, like new again.” Or something like that which I found so surprisingly profound.

Indeed, after all the particles wedged in between the gaps because of irregular or non-flossing were loosened and removed, after all the plaque accumulated because of inadequate brushing was extracted sometimes painfully, after all the stains brought about by stain-causing food or fluids have been taken out, and after cavities have been scraped and filled, after the rotten odor have been eliminated after everything was polished and whitened, and after all missed appointments, cancellations and excuses not to come, “like new again” would indeed be the right term, eliciting that general all around good-feeling one gets after a thorough teeth cleaning, especially if you do not have to pay a dime and have put it off for a considerable amount of time. Yes, priceless.

And we see this “like-new again” feeling repeated like in after a new shampoo, haircut, treatment and do. Or even after a clean scrubbing down and a hot warm bath after working outdoors or a good workout or a thorough spring cleaning.

Like New Again

And so if there is a God, if there is a God who cares for you and me and if there is a God who tries to speak to me -- I would gather that at instances such as this, He might have really did.

Like as it was recorded in John Chapter Three (The Message)

1-2 There was a man of the Pharisee sect, Nicodemus, a prominent leader among the Jews. Late one night he visited Jesus and said, "Rabbi, we all know you're a teacher straight from God. No one could do all the God-pointing, God-revealing acts you do if God weren't in on it."

3Jesus said, "You're absolutely right. Take it from me: Unless a person is born from above, it's not possible to see what I'm pointing to—to God's kingdom."

4"How can anyone," said Nicodemus, "be born who has already been born and grown up? You can't re-enter your mother's womb and be born again. What are you saying with this 'born-from-above' talk?"

5-6Jesus said, "You're not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation—the 'wind-hovering-over-the-water' creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life—it's not possible to enter God's kingdom. When you look at a baby, it's just that: a body you can look at and touch. But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can't see and touch—the Spirit—and becomes a living spirit.

7-8"So don't be so surprised when I tell you that you have to be 'born from above'—out of this world, so to speak. You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. You hear it rustling through the trees, but you have no idea where it comes from or where it's headed next. That's the way it is with everyone 'born from above' by the wind of God, the Spirit of God."

9Nicodemus asked, "What do you mean by this? How does this happen?"

10-12Jesus said, "You're a respected teacher of Israel and you don't know these basics? Listen carefully. I'm speaking sober truth to you. I speak only of what I know by experience; I give witness only to what I have seen with my own eyes. There is nothing secondhand here, no hearsay. Yet instead of facing the evidence and accepting it, you procrastinate with questions. If I tell you things that are plain as the hand before your face and you don't believe me, what use is there in telling you of things you can't see, the things of God?

13-15"No one has ever gone up into the presence of God except the One who came down from that Presence, the Son of Man. In the same way that Moses lifted the serpent in the desert so people could have something to see and then believe, it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up—and everyone who looks up to him, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life.

16-18"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.

19-21"This is the crisis we're in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won't come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is."

And if you got that today, maybe just maybe God was speaking to you as well.

God Speaking

Have you ever lost a loved one
Who you thought should still be here
Do you know what it feels like
To be tangled up in fear
What if He's somehow involved
What if He's speaking through it all

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us
Get our attention to prove He is enough
He'll do and He'll use
Whatever He wants to
To tell us I love you

His ways (His ways) are higher
His ways are better
Though sometimes strange
What could be stranger
Than God in a manger

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us
Get our attention to prove He is enough

Who knows how He'll get a hold of YOU
Get YOUR attention to prove He is enough

He'll do and He'll use
Whatever He wants to
To tell us I love you

God is speaking

I love you.
