Your Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional for Sunday

He’s The Master Communicator
 
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, PhD
For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man (Job 33:14-17).

Our God is a master communicator. He’s not constrained by the factors that limit human communication. While you’re talking to Him with your mouth, He can be talking to your spirit; having a conversation with you. Even when you’re talking to people, He can be having a conversation with your spirit. He can ask you a question and you can answer Him, even while you’re talking to others.
As the opening verses show, the Lord even speaks to men in sleep. There’re no restrictions to Him. He constantly sends His words to men in various ways, but many take no notice or pay attention, and pay the heavy price for ignorance, disobedience or rebellion.

Sometimes, when we deliver a prophecy or message of revelation for several minutes or even longer in church, some people wonder how long it took God to tell us those things. "Were you listening to God for that whole hour?" they ask; trying to find out how long it took God to give His message. He could take a whole lot of time to communicate something very brief, and He could impart so much into your spirit in a short space of time. We consider time because we live in the realm of time, but God doesn’t live in the realm of time. He lives in eternity.

When you talk with Him, your spirit is open to hear and receive from Him. He ministers to you in the spirit, and you receive what He shares with you in the spirit, and can communicate back to Him. It’s a spiritto- spirit communication. What a glorious fellowship! That’s why it’s so important that you pray from your spirit, speaking fervently in other tongues, and get your spirit lit up and alive to God.

Prayer
Dear Father, I thank you for the ability to hear and recognize your voice. I walk in the spirit, and not in the flesh. Therefore, my spirit is constantly trained by your Word to hear and discern your voice, as you lead me in perpetual triumph, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
