We can easily get into confusion if we listen to all the “voices,” around us rather than seeking to hear God’s voice speaking. Sometimes we can even go from person to person and place to place looking for what we want to hear, rather than truly seeking God and truth. There is always someone who will tell you what you want to hear if you look hard enough. Which is why it’s a good idea to watch that our hearts remain uncluttered from our own motives, issues, unforgiveness or fears, so that we arent deceived into hearing, doing and acting outside of what is God’s best for us.
God speaks in many ways; through the bible, through a quiet voice within us, through miracles, supernatural means, natural means, through our experiences, trials, visions, dreams, trances, through our minds “seeing” a part of a sentence or just a single word that we may not even understand at the time. He speaks to us by impressions, which often communicate knowledge, and by preachers, teachers, prophets, and others. It’s just whether we have ears and hearts to hear.
Today, ask God to speak to you in whatever way He wants to. It could be in reading the biblemand a verse just keeps on “jumping” out at you, or you are reminded of it later. It could be through an experience, another person, a vision or dream, or an impression or sense that God is saying something.
Write what you are “hearing” and seeing down. I practice in the little things as well as the big. When you start to actively choose to listen you suddenly come to realise just how much God has been speaking and looking out for you the whole time.
God calls and speaks to each one of us whether we know Him already, or have never even had a conversation with Him.
The bible says, “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD”.(Jeremiah 29:12-13)
I can guarantee that if you take the time to listen and to seek to hear God’s voice you will. Maybe the question then is, “What will you do when you do hear Him speak”?
Prayer: Lord please give me ears to hear and eyes to see the things you want to reveal to me. Forgive me when I have pushed you aside, or have listen to other voices rather than yours. I don’t want to do that anymore. In Jesus Name Amen.
