5 Things to Help You Hear the Voice of God

A lot of times I am asked the question, “How do I hear the voice of God?”  My response to that question is, “Are you listening?”  What I have learned from my own personal experience is that the Lord is always talking to us whether it’s directly to us, through someone else, or through his written word, we just aren’t always listening.

Sometimes we’re not listening because he’s not talking to us the way WE want him to talk to us.  We want to hear the voice of God for ourselves but don’t want to listen when God speaks to us through others.  Sometimes we’re not listening because we really don’t know when he’s talking to us, and other times we are simply tuning him out while listening to other voices that oppose his word.

In a world where we are constantly being bombarded by the voices and opinions of others, including our own, it is crucial to know and recognize the voice of the Lord when he is speaking and to obey him.  In last week’s blog I talked about 5 Things Keeping Us From Hearing the Voice of God. To help us get to a place where we are hearing and obeying the voice of God, I now want to talk about 5 Things to Help Us Hear the Voice of God. Continue reading

A Prayer For When The Road Gets Rough

I wrote out this prayer as a prayer of encouragement for myself during a time when I felt weary. I felt like I couldn’t wait any longer for the promises of God and I just wanted to give up.  Instead of throwing in the towel, I decided to use my sword, which is the word of God to defeat the enemy and his attack on my mind.

It does not matter what you may be going through, maybe you’re waiting for a promise from God and it seems like it’s never going to come, or maybe just everyday life may be getting harder and harder. Where ever you are in life, this prayer is a good prayer of declaration using the word of God to speak over your life and into your spirit. Even if you don’t feel different after saying this prayer, just remember that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Rom 10:17). Just reading the word of God to yourself is strengthening your faith whether you feel like it is or not. I pray that this prayer is a blessing to you like it continues to be for me. Continue reading
