Loudena....gosh that's a pretty name. What do you call revelation? How does it come to you? Is it just an idea that comes to your mind, or can it come from something you read? Does it begin with relationships? Relationships tie in with responsibility to other people.

I'm sure God has many different ways to communicate His will with people. I find it comes as I am moving through an assignment where I'm not quite sure how it's supposed to be done. I know God has an opinion, and where there is a definate right and wrong way to do something, His will is known.

Sometimes it comes as I'm writing. When the focus is there, and the prayer the revealed word flows through. There usually has to be quiet in order to discern, but with practice a person can become so accustomed to working with it, that it can become almost second nature.

Are there laws that govern revelation? I think when God has something He needs done, He chooses a person who already has a relationship with Him. So the laws that govern revelation would be the same as the laws that govern relationship.

How do you form a good relationship with your family? your spouse? your employer? There are things you would and would not do. It's the same for a relationship with God, only I think you practice on your family.

Do we have a responsibility and are we held accountable for what we could have done, or did do with relationships with people/God and is that what life is all about?

I've asked a lot of questions but they all could have been turned around to be statements. Asking questions causes a person to think, and thinking opens the door to revelation.
