    Hearing from God starts with a desire. You have to want to hear from God! Habakkuk 2:1 says, “I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the LORD says and how he will answer” (NLT). Habakkuk begins with these words: “I will.” In other words, he’s saying that he is deciding to listen to God. It’s a choice.

  • Sometimes God Speaks By Saying Nothing

    Sometimes God speaks by saying nothing. This is extremely frustrating to us! But God has his reasons when he’s silent. You have to just wait and trust him. If you run ahead of God saying, “I haven’t heard anything from God, so I’m just going to go ahead and do this” and you don’t trust him, you’re going to have all kinds of problems and be filled with regret.

  • The Holy Spirit Brings God’s Truth to Mind

    God speaks through ideas from the Holy Spirit. He gives you thoughts. He gives you suggestions. He puts impressions or notions in your mind. When the devil talks to you, that is temptation. But when God talks to you in your mind, we call that inspiration.

  • God Gives Advice Through Other People

    03-01-15-Can-You-Hear-Me-Now-God-Gives-Advice-Through-Other-People_mini

    God speaks to you through friends and family, particularly if they are believers. Proverbs 12:26 says, “The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray” (NLT). We all have blind spots. You have things in your life that you’re never going to see that need to be corrected, so God puts people around you to tell you the truth. Everybody needs somebody in their life who loves them enough to tell them the truth

  • God Reveals Truth Through Biblical Teachers

    The Bible tells us in Ephesians 4:11-12, “Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers, so that his people would learn to serve and his body would grow strong” (CEV). How do you know when somebody’s talking if that person has this gift from God to be a teacher?

  • One Barrier to Hearing God Speak is Resistance

    If you want to hear God speak, you must first cultivate an open mind. What does that mean? It means you’ve got to be receptive. You’ve got to be willing. You’ve got to be open. You’ve got to be eager. You’ve got to be ready.

  • Hurry is a Barrier to Hearing God

    To cultivate an open mind so that you can hear from God, you’ve got to allocate time to listen. That means you’ve got to slow down. You’ve got to be quiet. You’ve got to put it in your schedule so you have time to hear God speak.

  • Prayer: Decide in Advance to Obey God’s Word

    02-25-15-Can-You-Hear-Me-Now-Prayer-Decide-In-Advance-To-Obey-Gods-Word_mini

    God speaks to the person who decides in advance to do whatever God says to do. God doesn’t speak to the person who says, “God, tell me what you want me to say, and I’ll decide if it’s a good idea or not.” God does not speak to the person who says, “God, tell me what you think is the good thing, and I’ll compare it with my other options and choose the one I think is best.” No. God’s not going to waste his time on that. You have to say in advance, “God, I’m willing to cooperate with whatever you want me to do. I’m signing a blank check; you fill it in.”

  • Weed Out Distractions So You Can Hear God

    02-24-15-Can-You-Hear-Me-Now-Weed-Out-Distractions-So-You-Can-Hear-God_mini

    God wants to speak to you. But first, you must eliminate the distractions so that you can hear from him. You can’t hear God when your mind is crowded with worries, your plans, and your activities. You can’t hear God when your mind is filled with TV, the Internet, and your cell phone. For many of us, there is too much noise going on for us to hear from God.

    God wants us to use some money to take the Good News around the world. We invest in eternity every time we use money to bring others to Jesus. When you save to go on a mission trip, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund. When you help others go on a mission trip, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund.
