We have heard it all the time from people: The Lord spoke to me last night, The Lord told me to do it, Im doing X,Y,Z because God told me, etc.

If people had verifiable two way conversations with god then it wouldn't be called faith anymore.

He doesn't "talk" back.

He is able to speak to our spirit - inaudibly.

He can also speak to us through other believers.

Just because you don't have the same relationship, does not make some one a liar.
A lot of people have exclusive relationships that are not shared ,from a purely human stand point, why cant you understand this ?
Jesus provided the Holy Spirit to teach in his Place, in those that are born of the Spirit of God, and "seek to walk in obedience to "Him." (Key)
The whole book of John is loaded with all this information.

Yes people need to be born again in the Spirit of Christ through Jesus , and people need to talk to God , as if you do not talk to God He will not talk to you , just like a spouse , if you stop talking to them they will not have nothing to say ....... Talking to God still require faith , and Jesus spirit will require that faith is there , so He will not answer many questions as faith is a must , and He will never tell people things that give the devil any authority what so ever ....... Also God will bring a message by a Holy Angel of God , and can quicken a message through Holy Spirit , and if people have spiritual gifts of Holy Spirit , then Jesus will have more to communicate to activate the gifts .............

Look at the lyrics (or go on Youtube and listen) to the song "A Greater Yes" by The Whisnants. I think that answers the question beautifully.

Prayer conveys your thoughts, nothing more.

It focuses your thoughts and feelings on God in love and nurtures your Spirit's development and maturity. That is its purpose, not a Genie in the Lamp.

Our thoughts help us to grow, if we do not remain stagnant.
But some prefer the
unpleasant smell of a confined space.
