He received God’s Word
Does God speak to you?
Yes. God speaks to anyone who will give Him opportunity.
Of course we use the word speak to mean “communicate” or “get into contact with.” This includes several kinds of speaking. We have just considered how God “spoke” to Joseph through dreams. That is, He made himself and His will known to Joseph in this way.
We remember that God spoke to Noah, telling him of the flood. He spoke as a guiding teacher would, patiently giving specific details for construction of the ark. Certainly God spoke often to Abraham. How clear was the voice that called him forth to begin a new generation. How welcome were those words which God spoke in order to stop the knife, and spare his beloved son.
By speaking to individuals, God accomplished three purposes. He made them aware of His existence. He let them know that He desired their companionship. He gave them instructions for carrying out certain plans.
Now we find that God wishes to speak not only to individuals, but to all people everywhere. He wishes not only to give special instructions, but to make His will known throughout the earth. For this He desires that speech be put into writing. And 3 according to His usual way of working with His people, God chooses a man.
