HEARING GOD'S VOICE IS A PRECIOUS GIFT
We are living in the days of shock and awe and it’s imperative that we know the voice of the Lord, and discern His ways. As believers we need to learn how to distinguish the difference between His voice, our own thoughts and the voice of the enemy. Yesterday as I was driving in my car and I heard the Holy Spirit say: “I’m about to open up believers spiritual ears”. There are some of you who constantly scroll through the internet searching for a word from God. You are doing this because you think that you are not able to hear from God yourself but He wants to speak to every one of us.
A few years ago I took an elderly lady to an ear doctor for an adjustment on her hearing aid. While in the waiting room I noticed a diagram of an ear with the entire auditory system on the wall. The picture showed the sensory system for hearing. Above the diagram was a huge sign which read: HEARING IS A PRECIOUS GIFT. When I read that sign the Holy Spirit quickened this word to me. What an honor and a privilege it is to be able to hear Gods voice.
The doctor explained to us that sometimes the voices and noises around the patient are amplified when wearing the hearing aid, and it interferes with them tuning in to the voice of the person that is speaking to them. All the clamor around them can be so loud and disturbing that they have to learn how to tune out the outside distractions to be able to hear the person who is speaking to them. Many of you are hearing so many other voices that you are not able to hear the voice of Lord. He wants to teach you how to tune out the voices around you, in order to hear His voice.
In order to hear Jesus voice, we need to first filter out the voice of our soul (Our own thoughts), the voices of the people around us and the voices of the enemy. The Holy Spirit wants to speak to us, if we really desire to His voice. Jesus said in the book of John that His sheep know His voice. The key is to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and how He is speaking to us at a particular time, because He speaks in so many ways.
He can speak to us through a still small voice, an inner thought, an image, a dream or a vision, a feeling, a knowing, an impression, meditation (on Him), through people or whatever other way He chooses. Hearing His voice is one of the most precious gifts that we can receive, and we need to know that communication is always a two way street. It’s not some mystical or spooky thing to commune with the Lord. As you learn to hear the voice of the good Shepherd, know that His voice will always line up with His Word.
The Lord says I am looking for those whom I could trust with My anointing. I’m looking for men and women who have a heart after me. Those who’s hearts are sincere and they don’t have ulterior motives. Those who are not looking for self-promotion but want to be used to advance My kingdom. They will hear My voice as they minister to others. I will give them words of words of wisdom as they speak to people on the highways and byways, in the streets and the parks.
Those in the fivefold ministries will hear My voice and be led by My Spirit. They will take back what the enemy has stolen and Build Back Better. I’ll give them the strength to endure the fierce warfare that comes against them.. They will strengthen others in these end time battles. The intercessors will hear My voice in their prayers, and will know how to pray to intercept the plans of the enemy. To those Pastors who are having financial difficulties and about to lose their churches, I will speak to them to give them wisdom and divine strategies for their churches.
My people will not be silenced. My church shall be a house of prayer. They will become sharp shooters to quench every fiery dart that the enemy sends against them. The body of Christ is coming into an season of divine healing. I will raise up Prophets and speak to them in dreams and visons, and show them mysteries of the Kingdom. There will be some who prophesy with accuracy and none of their words will fall to the ground.
There will be evangelists who will send out a clarion call of repentance. I will give them words of knowledge to discern sicknesses and bring deliverance and healing. The Apostles will bring order, they will build and restore that which was torn down. I’m raising up teachers who teach the uncompromising word of God. They will not compromise with the religious traditions of men. My voice will be amplified in the days ahead as I move in this time and season says the Lord.
Job 33: 14 - 16
For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction.
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.
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.
