Matthew 2:7-13: In these verses, Herod sent the wise men to Bethlehem to search for the young Jesus and bring him word, so he could ‘worship’ him. After they found the young Jesus, worshipped him, and presented Him gifts, God warned them in a dream that they should not return to Herod. Then when the wise men departed, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Jesus and his mother into Egypt for Herod was going to seek for Him (in order to destroy Him).
There are many ways the Lord ‘speaks’ to his people. Both the wise men and Joseph were given instructions in their dreams to follow. Individually, the Lord reached them in order to protect their lives and ensure Scripture would be fulfilled.
Many people today are worried that God doesn’t speak to them, however His silence does not mean they are without God’s love, guidance, or support. He has many ways to reach us when He needs to and we only need to be receptive to His guidance, in whatever ‘delivery’ He determines is best. The Lord may use young children, family members, strangers, dreams, signs, wonders, etc. His messages may not come come in some huge grandiose display (as we would hope or expect), but a still, small voice, the quiet of a dream, a gentle whisper in our spirit.
While you are waiting to the Lord to speak, continue living a life worthy of honor and righteousness in His sight.
