Sound of God's Voice

God knows everything. Even computer programming.

Ever since we were young, we were taught that God is omniscient; God knows everything. But I didn't see many Information Technology professionals seeking God's help when trying to resolve a computer programming problem.


On April 24, 1992, I had a personal experience that showed me God  had enough computer programming knowledge to help me debug a defect.

I was so struck that God (or perhaps the Holy Spirit... He didn't identify Himself) would stoop to help a kid do his work, and frankly that He would care about knowing a programming language, that I excitedly wrote about it that…

God told Greg Boyd: "This is the last night my children will spend in a shelter!"

And then, as I got into my car, I felt the strongest word from God I'd ever felt. It was just short of audible, and just shy of ominous. "This is the last night my children will spend in a shelter! Find them a home by tomorrow evening!" This was not a suggestion! I knew I had no choice."


In January of 2003, Greg Boyd of St. Paul Minnesota was at a church service when a distraught Nigerian lady named Toke Olatoye approached him and told him that she and her three children (two girls and a boy) had been staying in homeless shelters for the past six months. She also surprised Greg by…

What God's voice sounds like (reported experience #5)

I was working as Religious Education director for Shrine Parish which is literally six houses down the block from where I live. Not a long walk and one that I took often. This time, it was fall and I was, as usual, too busy with working full time, four little children and multiple ministries I was involved with.

This walk, I had my two year old toddler Elena, in tow. I remember her darling little pink coat and bonnet and little white high top shoes. Remember those?

I was in a huge hurry but my toddler was not. She was busy with the important things in life; looking at the brilliantly…

Heard the Spirit say to her: “Why do you speak as though you don’t know me?”

I was at a friend's house one evening in Fall 2008. I'll call him Thomas. When I met this friend he said he was a Christian. But through the years he has become really more agnostic.

I was feeling really down in my soul; really feeling heavy and whiny. We're sitting on the couch and I'm just proceeding to wallow in my own self-pity. Talking as if there was no hope for certain situations and talking like I have no way to find peace about it. I was just wailing and complaining... just emotionally dumping all the negativity and all the bad stuff. Woe is me.

It's getting late, and I…

What God's voice sounds like (reported experience #6)

This is a simple example of how people who stay close to God through regular prayer can hear from Him. 


My 88-year-old mother has not been feeling well lately. last week on a particularly bad day, she was feeling fearful and did not want to be alone. since someone cannot always be with her, I prayed that God would take away her fear and give her peace. A few days later when I saw her she told me that the day she felt the sickest and didn't know what to do, she heard a voice inside her saying, "Don't be afraid." She knew beyond a doubt that God was speaking to her. My mother's fears…

The Blessed Virgin Mary comforted man with cancer

In 1979, we began to suspect that my father might have cancer. Doctors ordered an operation to confirm the diagnosis. The night before surgery, my father told our family that while he was praying that morning, the Blessed Mother came to him and told him "Don't worry - everything will be alright." I assumed my father was just suffering confusion caused by the powerful medication.

After the surgery, doctors informed us that my father did have cancer. He would have three to six months to live. Chemotherapy was suggested but my father decided against this.

It is now eleven years later…

Experienced a living Jesus while living a sinful life

I am an occasional member of WorthyChristianForums.com and met a man there who uses the handle OneLight. Based on his over 15,000 postings since 2007, I believe he is no longer just dabbling with Christianity any more. But at one time his life was in really bad shape, mostly due to his own bad choices: After his first marriage ended, he got a second woman pregnant, then married her, and had a second child with her. He admits he ignored her and the child while he overindulged in drugs. After years of self-indulgence and partying, he had the following experience. - Bill Schaef

Heard the Lord tell me, "Feed My Sheep"

This story was sent to this website by a man in his 70's who prefers to remain anonymous, and goes only by "Professor L". He is a respected professor for a university in the Detroit area. I know him personally and when I read this story, my interpretation of God's message to him was, "Continue to Feed my Sheep, as you have done for over 30 years now my faithful servant! You live my message, and that feeds my people... and my people are all people I created, Christian and not. You teach my message to youngsters by being a volunteer teacher of Catechism each school year. You share my…
