Hearing Gods voice.
I was listening to a pastor yesterday that triggered this post. It reminded me of a pressing question I had been asking and asking and promptly forgot. Why? Daily living. This inserted note is important as I need to say it as I write this. Journal. Daily, even if you have to keep a small note book to jot it down as it happens and then put it into a permanent journal. You will forget. You will need an anchor, or lesson lost. Moment forgotten, the memory vague when trying to recall. We don't grow unless we know where we have been.
That said, I continue.
I asked and asked why I was not hearing from you Lord? No answer. Or .....was He?
After listening to this pastor about asking God in every decision and not just doing your thing and then asking Him to bless it (my words ).
I recalled a book I had and got it out and did the eenie meanie HEY MO random opening of the book.
Right to the spot. How about THAT! ok....
Mark Virklers book Dialogue with God.
Before I quote him I would like to say I have heard from God. I used to hear better but stress and serious life issues made it almost impossible. Religion got in the way I might add. I went from a child like natural flow to a religious formula. DEATH TO YOUR INNER KNOWING. I write this first as a warning. DO NOT get into some formula, God is not in formula's though there are right ways and wrong. Go to More Tools for a link to the Prayer Secrets by Kenneth Hagin.
My hearing from God comes in many forms. The form it did not come in and what I was needing when I was flopping about like a fish on hook, on a line, on the dock; I had been needing hey you do this and don't do that and it will work out. I really needed a billboard communication.
When in crisis or high stress you forget to trust, you forget to relax. You forget that you don't get typically the big ah HA! It is these little nudges here and there impressions. These can be so subtle.
I heard His voice really clearly when I was dying. That was such an amazing experience. Hell in the hallways but as with most things when it's in the rearview mirror you can say WOW!
Be ye like little children. A child like trusting with no agenda. Be pure about it. Don't be selfish. Check your motives. Truly, He seems to only respond when motives are good and pure. Selfishness has to be banished. Society will call it being proud of yourself. Pride and self worth don't go in the same sentence. Humility has to be studied, think Moses when you go through with that study. Think Jesus.
Well stress and life events and listening to the wrong folks got me into a hole. I realize I knew how to hear from Father ~ Jesus. I knew His voice. I was clouded over with stress and fear. Those had to be banished.
Here is what Virkler wrote that is simplistic and is the way I know works, having done it.
Tune your heart to receive spontaneous voice of the spirit within you.
Quiet yourself inwardly so you are able to sense Gods inner movement
Open the eyes of your heart, asking the Father to fill them with His dream and vision
Journal, writing down the spontaneous dialogue that comes to your heart.
That is good.
Not all small voices are God though. Peter was rebuked when he told the Lord "No" to his being crucified. The Lord knew Peter was being used by Satan. So check your thoughts closely. Check to see if they are your flesh junk too. That is where the humility thing comes in.
Be blessed, go to your Father~Jesus and ask, with faith you will receive an answer.
He is listening....
