It is the desire of every Christians heart to be able to recognize Gods voice and know His direction for their lives but many are not sure how to discern what He is saying to them. Some think that hearing His voice is unobtainable, some think that it is for a select few and others think that it is just spooky. This is far from the truth. We are supernatural beings living in a natural body and Jesus desires for every one of us to learn the many ways that He speaks to us . He said in His word, My sheep know My voice. Every Christian is capable of hearing His voice.
The Lord says, listen for My voice. I speak to you in a multitude of ways. I speak in dreams, I speak in visions, I speak in nature, I speak through your circumstances, I even speak to you in your trials. As you go to sleep at night with expectation you will be more receptive to hear from Me in your dreams. As you quiet your mind and posture yourself in an attitude of prayer you will learn how to hear and become more sensitive to My voice when you pray. As you prepare yourself by conforming to My ways, renewing your mind and attending to My words you will become more attuned to My voice. When you free your mind from the cares of this world you will begin to hear with more clarity. As you read My word and meditate upon it you will begin to recognize My thoughts for you. As you lift your voice to Me in praise and worship, you will begin to hear Me in the song. Learn how to rest and enter into My presence.
As you go about your day, listen for My voice in your travelling. I will speak to you on your jobs, and even as you are shopping. Seek Me in confidence throughout your day knowing that I will be there to meet you. Learn to recognize My voice through others. Learn to recognize My voice for solutions to your problems. Learn to recognize My voice in all the affairs of your life. I will give you the answers to the questions and concerns that you have. My voice releases authority. My voice brings direction. My voice brings instruction. My voice brings transformation. My voice brings healing. My voice brings deliverance. Allow Me to remove anything that may be hindering you from hearing My voice. Stay sensitive to My voice of correction. As you continually submit and surrender totally to Me, you will be able to hear with more clarity. Know that it is My desire to speak to you as My bride in covenant with Me says the Lord.
