God speaks to us everyday.
“God has spoken to us since the bible times, he still speaks to us even today.
He spoke to Moses and Abraham in the bible, he still speaks to us even today but are we listening ? Do we ever listen? God is everywhere, he is more than a spirit form, he is the reason why we are alive”.
Some people think that God is only for the Christians and that he doesn’t listen to those who believe in ancestors. This is the reason why some sangoma didn’t want to believe in God, in the past, let alone acknowledge his presence in our lives. People believed in God long before colonialism came to our country. They knew about our creator who is above us all. The problems came about when they were told that worshiping ancestors and doing rituals is wrong. This took them away from their rituals and into the church. People were forced to choose between the church and their ancestors. Those who wanted to do it both, were discouraged and removed from the church.
People who believed in ancestors never stopped doing it but they kept it a secret from the church. They would do their rituals quietly and then go to church on Sundays. As time went on, the church realised that more and more people were doing ancestral prayers to such an extent that some of them would choose to leave the church, so the church started to become lenient towards this group. They began to accept and not be too harsh on those who were found to be practicing.
Ethnic people find it hard to accept the God that came with the religion because this would mean that, they never had a God before then. It would mean that they lived a life which had no spiritual background until religion came and this does not make any sense at all. People believed in God and he spoke to them in a way they understood. Even today God still speaks to his people and only those who have an ability to listen, do hear.
The question we need to address in the future, is what is a God?
I think that if we understood the concept of God and his existence in our lives, it would be much easier for us to listen when he speaks.
God is above us all, he makes everything possible whether its good or bad. God speaks to us everyday through our life experiences. God is behind each and every lesson that we learn from this life. He is the reason we grow and become better human beings.
We need to realise that our daily life experiences are orchestrated by God himself and he brings to us that which can help us move to another level, in our lives. God speaks to us through other human beings everyday. He expects us to take lessons from our daily life experiences, as they are meant to teach us one thing or another. Your interactions on a daily basis must teach you something. Never say that you can only learn from good experiences. Try and find a message from everything you go through in life because that is the main intention behind our existence.
When you begin to accept your life the way it is, that is when you begin to get closer to your purpose in life. That is the time when you are mature enough to accept the reality of this life. We live our lives concentrating on what we want for ourselves and this takes the most of our youth life. I wish someone could tell us earlier in life that we need to work towards finding our purpose in life. And that could bring us closer to happiness and a much fulfilling life.
Children should be touch much earlier in life about these things. They should understand the importance of God in our lives as well the connection we have with our ancestors. We need to teach our children how to listen to the messages from God. They must never take anything for granted and should embrace all life experiences the same way, whether good or bad.
God speaks to us through the messages we receive from other people everyday. Sometimes you talk to a person and realised afterwards that you have learnt so much from them. You realise that you are a changed person after that conversation. At times you feel bad after an interaction with someone, and this leaves you with bad feelings. You try and avoid such situations in the future, but the truth is we learn and grow after each and every life experience. If you say you don’t want to go through hardships in your life, if means that you don’t want to learn and grow in the department of strength. Stronger people achieve more and go far in this life. Wiser people have said that when we know better we do better. We need to work on the betterment of human kind because it will take us far in this ever challenging life.
God put us on earth and gave us freedom to live and be able to separate right from wrong. Everyday of our lives we get tested by tricky situations where we have to make decisions or choose a side. It is at times like these that we need to listen to our inner self and use the wisdom that God gave us. When faced with challenges we tend to look for an easy way out. We are forever worried about doing something that will be accepted by others and at times we even put our own needs behind just because we seek acceptance and understanding by other people.
This is what can happens to you, if God speaks to you, directly. I say, directly because most of the time we forget about Gods’ existence in our lives until we are in trouble when we need the power of prayer. So by the time you kneel down and pray for your troubles, Gods’ presence is there as always and you can almost feel it. When you pray, you imagine that he is somewhere close and listening as you beg and plead.
So when God starts to talk, he doesn’t give you solutions that make sense to you at the time. He only expects you to have faith and trust that things will get better. Sometimes when you are in trouble you think too much about people around you. You wonder what they think of you and your problems. You even wonder if they still care, but when God speaks, he takes your focus away from other people. He speaks in such a way that you begin to doubt yourself. You wonder if you should implement this advise or not.
Sometimes after a prayer you feel like you have a solution but you get scared to take that route because you feel that, it will alienate you from your friends. A little voice inside will tell you that, this is the only way you can get out of this situation but you don’t listen. It usually takes us a long time to get used to this voice inside and follow instructions. In the end we say that, “ there was nothing else I could have done”, as if that was your last option. We forget that it was this option that came first but we gave excuses because we were afraid of being judged by others.
This reminds me of the time I had to accept my calling. Sometimes we say it lightly that we must accept and acknowledge the powers, but when it actually happens, it takes a long time to give in fully. Yes we accept and follow procedures but at the same time we always wait for a sign to tell us that we have taken a correct route. It is hard to have a belief and faith in something which we cannot be able to prove to other normal human beings. Firstly it becomes hard for you as a person faced with that challenge to finally accept that you are really getting these messages. Secondly, once you have accepted, you then have to make people around you understand what you are going through.
While you are still deciding and trying to make sense of things, a little voice speaks inside of you and tells you what you need to do. The reason why it becomes so hard for us is because we are then faced with a challenge to always prove to the people that you have not gone mad. People will then begin to test you and try to prove you wrong in everything you do or say.
This is the time when one needs to really be grounded and strong willed. You must know to know where you stand with God.
For me I had always known that I had my own special relationship with God, of which I am forever proud till today. From an early age, I got to understand that there is a God. Even though I didn’t know about the co-existence of God and ancestors at the same time, but I still believed that God is the first and far most reason for my being.
When my ancestors approached me personally, I didn’t panic either because I had always known, somehow that they would get in touch with me one day. Suddenly the little voice that I had always believed in became stronger and clear in my mind. It was awoken and brought to life. When I looked back, I realised that this was the same voice that has been talking to me all along, only this time, it had taken another form, of my ancestors. I continued to listen to the voice and asked for guidance until today.
Today I know that God speaks to us all the time, but when we have major problems with our ancestors he allows for them to become active in our lives. As they become active, they may cause havoc in our lives because they are supposed to have moved on to another world already. When the ancestors rise up in your life, it is not an easy thing to go through. It is a process that needs to be followed until your ancestors are happy and you can carry on with your life. Once you have finished this journey things go back to normal as the ancestors become more friendly and less disruptive towards you.
What is important is the relationship that exist among God, the spirits/ancestors and an individual. As long as you understand that God is there before, during and after this time of challenges then you will be able to focus and be more grounded.
So when God speaks, do not be afraid or embarrassed of what the people might say. Just follow instructions and relax. People may judge you all they want but in the end God comes though and saves the day for you.
I know how hard it is to listen to this inner voice and follow it because we shy the risk of coming across as crazy, to other people. The downfall to this is that the longer you take to listen, the longer it takes for you to grow as a person and understand that, there are no miracles in this life, only God can create wonders for us but if you believe he will see you through.
God lives in each and everyone of us, which is why we are always advised to tap into those powers on the inside and use them to our advantage. When we free our ancestors we are actually working to wards a greater good, so that God can allow our ancestors to be accepted in his kingdom. So when God allows us to listen to our ancestors and cleanse them, it is a blessing in disguise for us. This journey is very hard but with the right support from family and friends we can share the load.
The next time you think God is talking to you, kneel down and pray about it, your answers will come.
