How do we hear from God?
We must first posture ourselves to hear what the Lord speaks. We must come to a place of willingness to seek God and hear what He speaks through prayer and reading His Word.
1 Peter 3:12 (ESV) “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer.”
Jeremiah 33:3 (ESV) “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”
Here is the good news, God hears us when we pray and when we cry out to Him in desperation.
He is faithful, but are we faithful?
Are we faithful to spend time in His word?
Are we faithful to wait when it feels like we will never see an end to our suffering?
Posturing is not enough, we must also spend time in His presence. Through prayer and the reading of His Word, we discover His will, His character, His plan, and His call for our lives.
Another way God speaks to us is through His Son, Jesus who shows us how to live.
Time and time again, He tells us, He has come to do the will of His father.
John 5:30 (CSB) Jesus says, “I can do nothing on my own. I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent me.”
In conclusion, I share my personal testimony and advice on how to hear from the Lord.
