God Speaks. Really?...I Mean..Wow!

God speaks.
This in itself should be an amazing enough truth for us to grasp. In a college group I lead we discussed whether we thought a deistic approach to life was true to reality. But we never mentioned the possibility that it might be all we deserve.
Consider this: an all-knowing, all-powerful, omni-present being decides to make a world. Even if we forget that this Being we believe in is all-good, He makes us. Should it really be a concern of ours if this Being decides not to talk to us? Do you speak to your paintings, your music, your dinner? We profess to believe in a god that is as far superior to us as we are to anything we create. Why should we ever expect Him to talk to us?
We are presented with a broken world and we say that we didn’t ask for this suffering. Perhaps not, but what a wonderfully me-centered way of looking at things. No wonder the Apostle Paul wrote what he did in Romans 9.
But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? ~Romans 9:20
If we really believe in an all-powerful God, I would suggest we should be less mouthy to Him. But I digress. The point is that God does speak. And before we even consider how or why, the fact alone should cause us to worship. 
God speaks. I want to be listening.
