What a glorious truth this simple phrase communicates. God calls out to us, to all of us. He is not shy. He does not play hard to get. He approaches us in a multitude of ways.
He speaks to us through what is called nature.
(Romans 1:19-20 KJV) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:It is this that has brought up the concept of Intelligent Design even among people who are not believers. There is too much awesome, microscopic detail to be accident.
At the other end you have the clearly written word of God. This is how God can continue to speak to us even when our emotions claim we cannot hear.
In between you have the witness of others, the preaching of the word, the writing of Godly authors, the voice of the Holy Spirit, and I am sure there are specially tailored ways that God calls to you when necessary.
So? Pretend like every step of life is an old fashioned approach to a railroad crossing. They used to have signs that said, “Stop, look, listen.” Give it a try.
