For those willing to hear, God’s “voice” can be discerned through a variety of sources. The most obvious is the Bible, but He can also call to us through the spoken or written words of other Christians. And at times He speaks through circumstances and the wonders of creation (Romans 1:20). We would be amazed if we knew all the ways our loving Father tries to get our attention.

In James 1:22 we read that professing believers are to be “doers,” and that their entire personality should be characterized in that way. Christians who are content with only hearing the Word have made a serious miscalculation.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for James 1:22.
One’s response to the light in this life is crucial, because at the throne of judgement there will be no opportunity to embrace truth that was formerly spurned (Revelation 20:11-15). Those who scorn the light of the gospel now will have all light removed from them in eternity.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Luke 8:18.
