The other day while I was in an electronic store I overheard a conversation that the technician was having with a customer. He was telling him how the technology of sound has changed throughout the years. He said that in the 1950’s we had hi-fi (high fidelity), then it went to stereo (stereophonic sound) in the 60’s and continued to improve in quality. We now have HD (High definition), and surround sound. He then said how he has a “trained ear” to hear sound quality. When I heard this the Lord spoke to me and said, it is the same way in the Kingdom of God. Some of us have trained ears to hear the His voice with more clarity. The book of Hebrews chapter 5 verses 13-14 says that we must come off milk and train our senses in order to grow spiritually. When Jesus spoke to His disciples about having ears to hear, He was not speaking of natural hearing. Jesus was speaking about hearing with spiritual ears.
The Lord says, I am speaking in this time to all who have ears to hear. As you learn to tune in to My voice and block out the clamor and the pandemonium around you, you will begin to sensitize your ears to My voice. My voice will bring peace to your heart and mind. My voice will bring victory into your situation. As you learn how to tune out the distractions around you, My voice will become more evident. As you filter out the noise, you will begin to recognize My voice with clarity. I will speak in the storms as well as in times of peace . I will teach you how to hear My voice in dreams as well as discern My plans in visions. Take every thought captive so that you will not be hindered by your own thoughts. Don’t listen to the voice of torment and confusion. Ignore the accusations that the enemy sends to distract you. Block out the voice of the stranger that vies for your attention. Seek Me for clarification so that you will understand the ways in which I speak. I will speak in hidden things as well as the obvious.
Learn how to be sensitive to Me through My word and learn how to hear Me in your quiet times. Learn how to recognize Me in the still, small voice by coming into a deeper place with Me. As you seek Me in prayer and intercession you become familiar with the many ways that I speak. In this place I will reveal the secrets of the Kingdom to you. I will speak to those who I can trust with hidden manna. I will reveal to them the hidden treasures. They are those who hunger to know Me more. Press in through intercession and as you seek Me diligently, allow your mind to become renewed to My word. My voice will come through My word and intimacy. Just as the bride knows her grooms voice, you will also learn to recognize My voice through this intimate relationship with Me says the Lord
1 Kings 19:11- 12
“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.”
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.”
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
John 10: 4 – 5
“And when He brings out His own sheep, He goes before them; and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”
