Are you hearing the Voice of God?
Are you hearing the voice of God? There are times when we struggle to discern what the Lord God may be saying to us. We need His direction in every area of our lives and He is the only one who can truly let us know which road to take.
Turn off the television. Stop listening to everyone else, even your well meaning Christian brothers and sisters, and tune your ear into the voice of the Lord.
In seeking to hear the voice of God consider these scriptures
Matthew 7:7-8 (New International Version)
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (New International Version)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Here is a Prayer for you to hear the voice of God…
Lord, I come to You in true repentance of my sins and ask for forgiveness for all of my sins, known and unknown. I praise You Lord and I thank You Lord for all the blessings that You have given me and that You continue to give me everyday.
As I come to You Lord, and humble myself before You, I ask that You clear my mind of any preconceived thoughts, confusion or deception. I ask You Lord to block anything that is not of You and that I hear Your Voice and only Your Voice, Lord Jesus.
I thank You Lord for the Words of Wisdom that I receive from You and I ask You Lord in complete faith and confidence that You will not allow any words to be spoken from my mouth that are not Your Words.
In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen
