1/13 How do you help your Heart be more willing to hear God?

In our last post, we looked at one big reason why we hae trouble hearing from God – the Heart.  This is heart 9the part of us that holds all our treasures, our goals and all our behaviour comes from the Heart.  Later  we shall cover the Heart in a series!
  1. First, only God knows what is in our heart, 1 Samuel 16:7, Psalm 7:9.  So our first job is to work with the Lord to find out what is there and how it needs to be changed.

1/12 What if my Heart doesn’t want to hear from God?

So far in our series ‘Hearing your Creator’s Voice’, we have seen main seven reasons why some people find closedit difficult to hear the Lord’s Voice:

                Ignorance that we can, wrong teaching, faulty beliefs about His nature and character, life is full of other things like idolatry, occult and other dark spiritual influences, fear that God is like an earthly dad, past hurts and then, too much effort required to change if we allow God’s touch.

Then we looked at how finding our inspiration and belief system based around His love we can face the challenges of tomorrow.  Then, we can bring help to our family when we have our life on track with the hope and cleansing He inspires.

1/10 Hearing God and the 3rd Reason to Hear Him

In our last post, we talked about good reasons why we need to hear from God!  We were created with the need for who-is-godthis relationship; we were created to hear from our Creator.   This brings an added reality to our faith when we know He talks with us – personally.  Our Christianity is more than just rules and laws, rituals and conformity.  His relationship with us takes on a whole new level when we really, really know His voice.

1/9 The 4th Key to Hearing from God by Carlotta Waldmann

We now look at the Fourth key to Hearing from God by our guest suthor, Carlotta Waldmann from Crossscroll and quill Walk Life, Inc.

Key #4 – Journaling, the writing out of our prayers and God’s answers, provides a great new freedom in hearing God’s voice.

“God told Habakkuk to record the vision and inscribe it on tablets…(Hab. 2:2). It had never crossed my mind to write out my prayers and God’s answers as Habakkuk did at God’s command. If you begin to search Scripture for this idea, you will find hundreds of chapters demonstrating it (Psalms, many of the prophets, Revelation). Why then hadn’t I ever thought of it?

1/8 A 2nd & 3rd Key to Hearing God from Carlotta Waldmann

We continue with our Guest author, Carlotta Waldmann from Cross Walk Life, Inc.  Our Guest, Carlotta shared her first Key: Turning into spontaneous thoughts.  We now continue with Keys 2 & 3:

“Key #2 I must learn to still my own thoughts and emotions, so that I can sense God’s flow of thoughts paintbrushesand emotions within me. 

“Habakkuk said, ‘I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart…’ (Hab. 2:1). Habakkuk knew that in order to hear God’s quiet, inner, spontaneous thoughts, he had to first go to a quiet place and still his own thoughts and emotions. Psalm 46:10 encourages us to be still, and know that He is God. There is a deep inner knowing (spontaneous flow) in our spirit that each of us can experience when we quiet our flesh and our minds.

1/7 Guest Post, Learn to Hear from God

We present a three part Guest post on Learning to Hear from God from Carlotta Waldmann, from her website: Cross Walk Life, Inc.

“The age in which we live is so married to rationalism and cognitive, analytical thought that we almost mock when we FindingGod (2)hear of one actually claiming to be able to hear the voice of God. However, we do not scoff, for several reasons. First, men and women throughout the Bible heard God’s voice.

“Also, there are some highly effective and reputable men and women of God alive today who demonstrate that they hear God’s voice. Finally, there is a deep hunger within us all to commune with God, and hear Him speak within our hearts.

1/5 If He talks, why can’t I hear Him?

We began this series with the question of: Does our Creator God talk to us today … and our conclusion dadwas… ?  Despite some religious doctrines that say He stopped speaking somewhere in history, maybe around AD 53 when the last Apostles died, we believe He can and certainly wants to!

We have even had a special Guest post that looked at John 16:12-15.  We saw that Jesus Said He would send the Holy Spirit to ‘TELL them’, “point the way”, “announcing future events in detail “and “ANNOUNCE in detail”.  Jesus Himself received all that He had from the Father, who gave Him everything.  Then the Holy Spirit would take from that storehouse and declare it to us today.  This whole passage is in ‘present tense’ meaning the Holy Spirit is saying this to us today.
