There are so many voices speaking right now about the state of the world! The CDC, the government, the news channels, the people in your life who call on the phone to give you their opinion on the latest announcement. Everyone has an opinion but they are not all true! In fact, we need to be careful who and what we are listening to, because we can find ourselves in fear and anxiety in no time at all. The bible says it this way:
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”Proverbs 4:23
Ever wish you could hear God’s opinion of it all?
The way bread is flying off the shelves (I haven’t seen bread available in weeks) you’d think they were giving it away! I saw a loaf of bread 2 pack on amazon was $20 (incl shipping)! But God offers us the TRUE LIVING BREAD: His son, JESUS.
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.John 6:25
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’Matthew 4:4
God is Speaking. You CAN Hear God’s Voice and Connect with His Heart!
Hearing God’s still small voice is paramount in every believer’s life. Deciphering HIS voice amidst all the noises and lies is so important for all of us, especially when it comes to understanding and believing who God says we are to HIM. When God speaks, confusion fades, lies are exposed, and you encounter an unconditional love and PEACE you have never known before.
Hearing God is an invitation for you to encounter His love. The Father is pursuing YOU to speak life and truth into your heart about WHO HE IS and WHO YOU ARE to Him. He will lead you when you don’t know what to do next. He is calling your name. YOU. He wants to speak to you and pull you in close to Him.
He is saying to you…,
“Look at Me beloved… you are beautiful to Me. Give yourself to love, even when it is a sacrifice. This is what My Son did. Jesus loved all, despite how they treated Him. He was so confident in Me and My love for Him that I was all He needed. The Spirit spoke and strengthened Him during extremely difficult times. STAND. Stand on My promises to you. Bask in My love. My love is a waterfall pouring over your life, which has been laid down for me. I see every difficulty. Each time, I lean forward to see if you turn your thoughts toward Me so I can strengthen you with the truth, dismantling the lies the enemy is trying to form in your mind. You must look at Me. My eyes run to and fro, over all the earth, toward all my sons and daughters to strengthen those who are fully surrendered, laid-down lovers, making their lives to be living sacrifices. I have My eyes on you, beloved one. Lean back into My embrace.
You are not alone, because My Spirit goes with you wherever you go. In this season, it is imperative you walk very close to Me. Just be still with Me as you drive in the car. Use the time on your drive to worship and listen to my logos and rhema word. You are so precious to Me. No word I have spoken to you have I changed my mind about, pertaining to your future. You are chosen. The enemy desperately wants you to bleed emotionally, but I am a Father of restoration. Let me heal your wounds. I am your healer. Spend MORE time listening to Me. Bring to Me every burden and allow Me to give you peace and rest in exchange. I am your Father, your best friend, your Comforter. Bring everything before Me. Hurt that is bottled up will fester. Let Me pour My healing water and oil over this wound in your heart. You are My child, part of My bride, and My friend. I am your strong support. Lean on Me when you’re not strong and I’ll be the rock you need to stand on. And when the lies and darts come… you can stand. Stand on My truth because My love is strong for you”. (An excerpt from The Voice of Truth: Part 2…Daily Devotions, Day 40)
“Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.Isaiah 41:10 NSRV
YOU CAN HEAR GOD
One of the most amazing privileges of being a son or a daughter of the Most High God is that we become equipped at Salvation with the Holy Spirit and can hear God’s voice. Hearing God is not a gift. It is a birthright.
Do You Believe?
We’ve all been there. You know, that place where you’ve tried something and failed a couple of times. There’s something about failure that continues to whisper lies in your mind, like: “You can’t,” “You might as well not try,” “Things never work for you,” “You’re just going to fail again!” or “You’ll NEVER be able to hear God!” This is where you have to decide whether you are going to believe God or the devil. The Bible says,
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.John 10:27 NKJV
Jesus is the Shepherd and you are a sheep—if you have given your life to Him. Have you given your life to Him? (If you’re not sure… stop right here. If you’ve never given your life to Jesus, but you want to, go to the Salvation tab at the top of my website. Take care of it right now! He is calling your name.) If you are positive you are one of His “sheep,” just believe that you CAN hear him.
When we recognize we are believing a lie instead of the truth, we have to break agreement with that lie. When we come under the influence of a lie in our thinking or belief, we are held captive by it. As we believe the liar (Satan), we come under his influence. There is power in speaking words out loud (more on these cocepts in my book, The Voice of Truth). So in prayer, repent and break agreement with the lie saying that you CAN’T hear your Shepherd and declare the truth of the Word of God. Align yourself with truth.
Dear Heavenly Father, I know that You always hear me. Thank you for loving me, saving me, and pursuing my heart. Please forgive me for believing the lie that I can’t hear Your voice as the Shepherd of my soul. I break agreement with that lie right now, in Jesus’ name. I declare that I can hear Your voice because I am a child of God and Your beloved Holy Spirit lives in me. I come, expectant, to Your throne room today to hear You speak life into me. I love You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Four Simple Keys to Hearing God’s Voice
The bible says we should come to the Father with the faith of a child. It must be simple or a child couldn’t do it! Here are four simple keys to practice in order to hear your Father speaking.
- Be still and quiet.
- Give your attention to Jesus.
- Notice the spontaneous thoughts/pictures coming in your mind.
- Write the thoughts down as you “hear” them!
(For a more thorough explanation, pick up a copy of my book!)
You can hear God speaking. GO to Him with genuine desire to know Him, not just to get information FROM Him. (He sees your heart and He knows the difference.) He will welcome you as you seek Him!
Come and experience an unlocking of your heart as you hear and abide in the voice of your Beloved Father, Savior, and Spirit… The Voice of Truth.
