Does God Still Speak To Us ?

A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study. The
Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the
Lord's voice. The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does
God still speak to people?" After service he went out with some
friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message.
Several different ones talked about how God had led them
in different ways.

It was about ten o'clock when the young man start driving home.
Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, "God.. If you still speak
to people speak to me. I will listen.. I will do my best to obey."

As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest
thought, stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and
said out loud, "God is that you? He didn't get a reply and started
on toward home. But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.
The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't
recognize the voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli. "Okay,
God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk."

It didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always
use the milk. He stopped and purchased the gallon milk and
started off toward home.

As he passed Seventh street, he again felt the urge "Turn down
that street. This is crazy he thought and drove on pass the
intersection... Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh

At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down
Seventh. Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will"...

He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he
should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He
was in a semi-commercial area of town. It wasn't the best but
it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses
were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people
were already in bed.. Again, he sensed something, "Go and
give the milk to the people in the house across the street." The
young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like
the people were either gone or they were already asleep..

He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat.
"Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake
them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again,
he felt like he should go and give the milk.

Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go
to the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look
like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that
will count for something but if they don't answer right away, I
am out of here."

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could
hear some noise inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it?
What do you want?" Then the door opened before the young
man could get away. The man was standing there in his jeans
and t-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a
strange look on his face and he didn't seem to happy to have
some stranger standing on his doorstep..

"What is it?"

The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought
this to you." The man took the milk and rushed down a hall way
speaking loudly in Spanish.. Then from down the hall came a
woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.. The man was following
her holding a baby. The baby was crying.. The man had tears
streaming down his face. The man began speaking and half
crying, "We were just praying. We had some big bills this month
and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for our baby.
I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some
milk." His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an
Angel with some...Are you an Angel?" The young man reached
into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and
put in the man's hand.

He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were
streaming down his face..

He knew then that God still answers prayers and that God still
speaks to His people.
