How To Hear God

Why Is It Sometimes So Hard To Hear From God?

=> Is it hard for you to hear God's voice?

=> Do you want to know how to hear God more often and more easily?

There are many reasons why you might find it hard to hear God. Take time to give yourself a spiritual check up and clear away the obstacles to hearing from God.

Here are some keys to help you unblock the channels and hear God more clearly.

Have you got a good connection?

Sin, wrong attitudes and unforgiveness can get in the way of hearing God's voice. So can greed, selfish ambition, pride and holding on to your own agenda. God can and does break through the sin barrier - Adam and Eve still heard God even though they had sinned - but sin that hasn't been dealt with can get in the way and make it difficult to hear God.

What's your motivation for hearing God?

If you are seeking to hear God for selfish reasons and looking to profit from what you hear or if you're simply looking to achieve your own ambitions - God is unlikely to co-operate no matter how long you pray or fast. If you want to hear God you need to make sure your motivations are good.

Have you acted on what God has already spoken to you?

God is looking for followers. He is looking for faith and obedience. Have you died to self? Are you ready to lay down your own will and your own agenda and sincerely ask God what He wants? If you are prepared to act on what you hear God will speak to you.

Are you resentful?

Are you angry that God isn't doing things your way? Do you think you know best and are scandalised that God isn't co-operating with you. Beware, resentment can make you deaf to hearing God.

Selective hearing can keep you from hearing God.

You might not hear God because you think God always speaks in a particular way. When God doesn't speak in the way that you expect you might not recognise that it is God speaking to you. You need to be open to God speaking in any way He chooses. Beware of sifting out what you don't want to hear because it isn't comfortable or it doesn't fit with your plans. You will hear God if you are open to Him speaking in different ways.

Are you too impatient to hear God?

Are you in a rush to hear God and not prepared to wait long enough. I wonder how many times you've missed hearing God speak by giving up just as you were about to break through. Do you want to hear God enough to wait and listen, believing that He will speak to you? Are you tuning in to God throughout the day and listening for God's voice as you go through your day?

Are you hungry to hear God?

"If you make insight your priority, and won't take no for an answer, searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt, believe me, before you know it Fear of God will be yours; you'll have come upon the knowledge of God."

"Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight. Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God." Proverbs 2: 3-5

Be like Habakkuk - stand at you guard post, keep watch and see what God will speak to you.

God is speaking all the time. If you clear away the obstacles and keep the channel clear you will learn how to hear God speaking to you.
