The LORD has been showing me something powerful this past week. Every one of us want to be led by the Holy Spirit, which might sound like an old Christian cliché, but it simply means that we want to have such a close relationship with Him, that we recognize His leading and know His will.
What we don’t realize is that we could become sensitive to His voice, know what He wants to do and say, and perceive the spiritual atmosphere changes around us.
This may sound super spiritual, but it is not. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit and stay in tune with Him through His word, prayer and speaking in tongues, we could learn how to be sensitive to His voice.
Prayer is not speaking religious repetitive words, but simple communication, conversation, decree and declaration. It is not commanding Jesus to do something, but rather acknowledging what He has already done for us on the cross and connecting with Him.
He wants us to learn to recognize His voice through our thoughts from a renewed mind. He will begin to give us words of knowledge and prophetic words for others.
He wants to give us discernment and show us deep personal things in a person’s heart for the purpose of praying for them, confronting them or delivering them from destruction.
He wants to speak to us in dreams and visions just as He did throughout the bible.
In order to have this intimate relationship, we must remove anything that desensitizes us from His voice. Many new cars have a satellite radio, which comes with hundreds of stations. With it we are able to tune in to any broadcast that we desire.
In the natural the LORD has given us a mind in which we could choose our thoughts. For many of us, if we begin to dwell on thoughts from the past, it might bring us right back into that time zone and deter us from hearing the voice of God. If we continue in that way of thinking, eventually we might go back to our old ways. We will always go in the direction of our most dominant thought.
The LORD says,
“My sheep know My voice and will not submit to the voice of a stranger. They will follow after peace, and recognize the enemies’ distraction and destructive schemes.
You have been created to have fellowship with Me, to hear My voice and know My ways. As your heart is submitted to Me, you will become sensitive to My leading. My word is My voice.
As you spend time with Me in the secret place, you will know Me in a greater dimension. You will be amazed at what I will show you as you are totally submitted to Me. Forget the former things and do not dwell on the past.
I AM surely doing a new thing which now springs up. As life support is necessary to keep a dying person alive, allow My word to fill you and release life into your spirit. Allow My word to become part of you, until your mind is renewed and your flesh is brought under total subjection.
Through My Word, I will reveal My secrets to you. As you spend time in My presence, you will find that hearing My voice will come with ease.
Pray in the spirit often, to build yourself up in your most holy faith. Soon you will find that as you continue to persevere immovable and unwavering, you will develop into that supernatural being who you were created to be.
Don’t be afraid of change, but move forward into the victory that I have for you. You will no longer be stagnant as a dry parched land but rivers of living water will flow freely once again.
Just as I had shown John an open door in heaven saying, “Come up here,” I AM also inviting you to come up into a higher realm and ascend to greater heights.
Just as I showed Jacob a latter in a dream, I AM rolling out this latter for you to climb and you will surely say: “Surely I was in this place and did not know it. How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven,”
says the LORD.
“Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!” Genesis 28:16-17.
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God,”Romans 8:5-8.
“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned,”1 Corinthians 2:13-14.
