In order to listen to someone, you’ve got to make time for them. The bible says God is a Spirit and whoever must worship him must worship him in Spirit and Truth. You ask ‘how do I worship in Spirit and Truth’. He lives inside you by His Spirit. You can communicate with Him anytime not just in church.
We can learn to hear His voice as this video clearly explains:
- Set time to meet your creator
- Choose an appropriate place
- Don’t miss appointments with your creator
- Find a comfortable place
- Be still & worship to prepare your heart
- You can pray and read scriptures
- Meditate on scriptures
- Have a journal, listen and write
- Write what you think God is saying as you read and pray
These do not have to be followed in the order specified but it gives a general guideline in developing a hearing heart.
Set time to meet your Creator is sometimes called ‘quiet time, personal devotion, daily devotion, appointment with God‘. There is no hard and fast rule about this . It could be anytime in the daytime you set aside to speak and listen to your Creator. It could also be any place convenient . It is your time of fellowship with your Creator and you want to cherish it as such. It is time you want to dedicate to hearing Him speak to you. Do not have selective hearing.
It is a good idea to start with worship or praise songs or you may decide to just be quiet. It is a time of growth as you get to know, love and serve your Creator. Do you know that the Creator of the Universe created you to have relationship with Him? ‘And for His pleasure we were created’ Rev 4:11. This is why Christianity is not a religion but a relationship.
Our relationship with our Creator is made possible through the cross. As the History book narrated, our sin through Adam & Eve separated mankind from God. He came up with a master plan to reconcile mankind to Himself. He came down in human form to take our sin upon himself on the cross. The death of that human on the cross brought reconciliation between man and his Creator. That relationship is accepted by faith in Jesus Christ. While on earth, he practiced ‘quiet time’ with God and showed us some examples. In one instance, ‘he went out into the mountains to pray and prayed all night’ Luke 6:12.
We really do not have any excuse in learning to spend time with God. we are only limited by our time and our imagination.
GUARANTEED to teach you to hear God’s voice!
As you follow through with the list above you will see and experience transformation. The list above is not exhaustive and you may have other ways to meet with your Creator. The important is that you start and that sometimes is the most difficult. It is truly an experience to be cherished.
