Although God gave His Word to the prophets in the Old Testament to bring nations and people to repentance, couldn’t we also learn that He wants to have that kind of intimate relationship with us as He did His prophets.
Jesus came so that we may all have that kind of intimate relationship.
A relationship of listening to our Father who is showing us a more perfect way. A relationship with our Father who tells us to come boldly before Him. A relationship with our Father who has told us He will never leave us or forsake us.
Yes, we can learn from the boldness of the Old Testament prophets and I think, even from their fear. For many times when we commune with God, we learn things that are uncomfortable or hard to understand. But through each one, we can see that God speaks through even the least. He knew their hearts.
Oh how I want my heart to be receptive to what “thus saith the Lord!”
