“…Today if you hear His voice (the Holy Spirit), do not harden your hearts as you once did in rebellion…”
There have been some people who question whether God is speaking to people today. There is no need to wonder; of course He is speaking to people today–through the Holy Spirit. He said in His Word through John that the “Holy Spirit would remind us of all we have been taught and show us things to come.” It is the Holy Spirit who quickens us or corrects us when we are headed in the wrong direction. It is the Holy Spirit who inspires us to do those things to bring others into a right relationship with God. It is the Holy Spirit who speaks to our hearts and gives us new songs, new ways to encourage others and to praise God. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us insight and allows us to prophesy according to the dictates of God (not self). Yes, God is still speaking, but many do not hear Him because they have hardened their hearts.
When we decide that sin is no longer sin, we have hardened our hearts.
When we decide that we are the masters of our fate and future, we have hardened our hearts.
When we decide to support and encourage the demolition of faith in God, we have hardened our hearts.
Hear the Holy Spirit today. Allow Him to create a new heart within you and receive all that God has in store for you. Hear Him today!
