Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know – Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV).

You shall have a song as in the night when a holy festival is kept, and gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute, to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the Mighty One of Israel. The Lord will cause His glorious voice to be heard, and show the descent of His arm, with the indignation of His anger and the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, tempest, and hailstones – Isaiah 30:29-30 (NKJV).

God certainly speaks and He desires to talk to His children as a father would to his children.
