we can't force God to talk‏

“We can’t force God to talk, yet sometimes He completely surprises us and talks anyways.” ~Bruce Waltke
There are times in teaching God’s Word that we hope upon hope for His voice to be heard through our mouths in the hearts and minds of our hearers and He doesn’t. Or He does, but not to who we thought He was going to do so.
We can’t wrestle the Spirit down from Heaven to do our bidding.
On the other hand, we can’t keep Him quiet either.
On other occasions, He intervenes Himself into our thoughts and actions in ways we did not anticipate or invite. He invites Himself into our aspirations and plans and tugs at us in ways we would shut off if we could.
God is sovereign.
Psalm 115:3
Our God is in the heavens;
He does all that He pleases.
