I had wanted to write a ‘manual’ on how to hear God’s voice. In the course of writing it, I heard His still small voice inside my heart, “Write your fourth book and call it Precious Moments Hearing the Voice of God.” Perhaps, when it comes to hearing His voice. there is no ‘manual’ per se, rather, there are ‘moments’, precious moments, when you connect and communicate with Him, discover and discern His guidance, and rejoice and return to fall in love with Jesus over and over again.
As you journey with me through my precious moments hearing His voice, it is my prayer that you will also begin to record your precious moments hearing His voice. You will begin to marvel at how your obedience brings you on exciting adventures with our awesome God, like He did with me.
So, are you asking, how do I hear His voice?
First, know this, God wants to speak to you. He wants to make known His ways to you. Psalm 103:7
And, it is okay to make mistakes. God can take our mistake and embroider grace into it. Avner Boskey
Now, receive the key to hear His voice. To hear His voice is to hear to obey Him.
He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shal love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:4-5
According to Lois Tverberg, the word that means hear or listen, 'shema’ (pronounced "shmah") is an excellent example of the difference between Hebrew, which stresses physical action and Greek and Western culture that stresses mental activity.
Listening, in our culture, is a mental activity, and hearing just means that our ears pick up sounds. But in Hebrew, the word 'shema’ describes hearing and also its effects – taking heed, being obedient, doing what is asked. The Hebrews understood that we have not truly put what we have heard into our hearts until it transforms our lives as well.
What has God spoken to you about? Are you ‘shema-ing’ Him?
He who has ears to hear, let him hear and heed My words. Matthew 11:15 AMP
Are you listening? Really listening? (Message version)
