Welcome to Learning how to Hear from God!

One of the absolutely important things that helps us grow our faith and walk with our Creator is to learn to Daniel 1hear His voice. So many people claim their faith is low or even irrelevant to their life.  When you learn to hear from Him, your faith and trust in His love actually come alive. That’s why we have written this blog on Hearing God.

 

So we do invite you to join us for every post, both to help your own faith grow but also to help share the real Lord Jesus Christ with a starving and hungry world!

1/15 But I can’t make the Jump to Hear from God

boy at crossIn our first series, we have been exploring the reasons why some people have trouble hearing from God.  First, we found so far: not knowing they can or wrong theology.  Next, we talked about how some people have a fear of hearing from God because inside, they think God must be like their earthly father – distant, abusive, insensitive.

The third big reason people have trouble hearing their Creator is their life is filled with so many other things, idolatry is happening.  Then we opened the discussion about involvement in the occult will stop us hearing Him.  We even had two ebooks as resources for you to explore this topic further.  Check into our Resources category for a ‘Spiritual Housecleaning” worksheet to help too.

1/14 Help your Heart to hear from God

So how does this help us get our heart to be willing to hear from God?  So how do get a healed, clean heart?veterans_suicide

  1. It doesn’t come with hard work out of our own efforts.  Partnership with God is necessary. We become ‘clean’ through Jesus’ power and what He did for us on the Cross.  By applying God’s principles, our heart learns to trust and respond to Jesus’ initiatives. and allow His cleansing to happen.

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.

1/11 Get in tune with Hearing God!

boy at crossWe have been looking at the valid and helpful reasons for hearing God in this our second series.  We have discussed how conversations with our Creator bring a reality to our faith because we were created to have this kind of relationship to be a ‘Jesus Follower’

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.
