Remember, You CAN hear from heaven! But you've got to have faith that He wants to talk to you. Keep a pure heart and obey the leading of the Great Shepherd - you will find yourself in the center of His will.
- You CAN Hear From Heaven!
If you don't think someone wants to talk to you then you probably won't go near them. God created you in His image. He started out in the Garden of Eden fellowshipping with His creation, and He wants your fellowship too. Scripture says that He thinks good thoughts toward you that He wants to give you a hope and peace for your outcome.
Throughout the Bible, He says words like hearken diligently to My voice; listen to these words I'm speaking to you today; and hear Me now in this…. He wouldn't say things like that and then not give us the ability to do it.
It amazes me how many people don't believe that God would ever have anything to say to them. The very One that created you and gave you the breathe of life has so much he wants to share with you so draw near and listen.
- He Gives Us Ears to Hear!
If you want to hear from God - you can but you've got to have faith that He wants to talk to you. Next, look at the word heart - you'll notice that e-a-r is in the center - that's the ear of your heart.
Have you ever had your ears stopped up, making it difficult to hear? It's the same thing with your heart. If your heart is cluttered, you may not be able to hear from God like you should.
Psalm 24 talks about being in a place of contact with God, "who shall go up to the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart…."
It's not difficult to maintain a pure heart. If you confess your sin He is faithful and just to forgive you of your sin and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. So, dig out the ears of your heart and you'll be amazed at how clearly you'll hear God's voice.
- We Are Sons of God
The Word says that as many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. As a born-again believer, you have been equipped with an inside leader called the Holy Ghost. He will show you those things to come and teach you those things you don't yet know.
Daniel describes Him as "He who reveals the profound and hidden things, He knows what is in the darkness and the light dwells in Him." This same light is in you! It is the light of revelation that can only come by the Spirit of God dwelling in you.
It is the Lord's will for you to hear from heaven so that you have the wisdom and insight needed to be successful in life. Go to God in faith knowing that He wants to speak to you. Find scriptures like John 16:13 - "He will disclose to you what is to come…He will guide you in all truth." God has something to say to you - so draw near to Him!
- It Is God's Will
It is God's will for you to hear from heaven. Have you ever had a scripture jump out at you while reading your Bible? Or have you ever had the Word that is stored in your heart "come to light"? That's God speaking to you.
When the Lord speaks to you in these ways - His word is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. It brings the exact answer or direction you need.
From your soul comes your mind, will and emotions. From your born-again spirit comes the "God" part of you. This living word divides the soul and spirit. It clears the path between what God is saying and what your own will or emotions are saying - revealing the thoughts, intents and purposes of your heart and you'll know with confidence when God really speaking to you. Draw near to God, listening to His Word in your heart.
- We Are Spirit Led
The Lord is our shepherd and He leads His sons by the Spirit. You may be in a place where His voice is not booming down from heaven but He can still be leading and guiding you. Isaiah says - you'll go out with joy and be lead forth with peace.
How does it feel in your spirit as you make steps in a certain direction? Is there joy and peace or is something saying, "this is not right." Having joy and peace doesn't mean it will always be easy but as you make steps He gives the strength and confidence to do what He is leading you to do.
Peace, or lack of it, is one of God's ways of speaking to you. Don't discount it because it is not a dramatic vision or prophecy. The Lord could be showing you that you are mature and spiritually developed enough to obey His gentle promptings. So, draw near to God and obey the inward witness.
