Hear from God

 

We must hear with faith and not fear

 

Hear from God

(Mark 8:18) God when He speaks to us will not speak to us to produce fear. If you feel fear you are listening to the wrong voice. The Bible has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind     (2 Timothy 1:7).

When we hear and obey we experience life

(John 5:25) When the voice of the son of God comes to us it will produce life.

I have a good friend who is a great pastor and minister in the Canadian and West Coast area. As a young lady she was asked to preach, but she fought and ran from the call of God and wound up being paralyzed. God spoke to her again and said, "If you will heed my call and do my will, I will raise you up." How many know when you get to the position you're hurting like that, you're ready to do what God wants you to do. She said, "Yes." That afternoon God sent a missionary that had never met her before into her hospital room. He came into the room and said, "God sent me to touch you, to lay hands upon you, and to bring resurrection life to you because you said to God you will heed His call." He ministered to her, she was quickened, and rose of that sick bed and began to preach the Gospel.

To hear God's voice we must belong to Him

(John 1 0:27) "My sheep hear my voice and they will not follow another." Make sure we are obeying the voice of God, following the voice of the good shepherd.

Coveting to prophesy will develop a keen ear

(1 Cor. 14: 1) Of all the spiritual gifts we should covet (desire greatly) to prophesy. If we do that we will begin to, as it were "gird up the loin of our mind" and press into the presence of God to hear His voice so we can edify and build up the church.

Ask God to open your ears

(Isaiah 50:4) Morning by morning I will waken the ears of my servant to hear as the learned, that He might have a word of wisdom for he who is weary.

I remember one morning a friend of mine, who is in the ministry, asked me to take his class for him. I went into this meeting and the Holy Spirit told me to speak on the peace of God. As I ministered one lady seemed to get more and more upset. Finally, the lady burst out and said, “I do not have the peace of God”. We stayed there and ministered to her and she gave her heart to Christ and the spirit of peace and joy hit that lady and she was transformed. God will waken your ear morning by morning to hear his voice.
