Promised Hearing

Promised Hearing

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Revelation 3:22

God never created anyone with the ability to hear His voice on their own; and he never created anyone unable to hear His voice with his help.

The ability to hear from God is given by the activation of the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit can activate your hearing just as well as anyone else.

God can speak through any number of means-- the Bible, prayer, visions, dreams, spiritual gifts, people, and circumstances-- but he always speaks by His Holy Spirit. God not only speaks by his Holy Spirit, but he gives you the supernatural ability to hear his voice by the activation of the Holy Spirit within you.

While God can speak audibly, he does this so infrequently it is hardly worth mentioning. The normal way God speaks is to speak to your born again spirit.

God has put within you the ability to hear his voice in your spirit, but that ability is only activated by the Holy Spirit. Just as your phone has the ability to receive all sorts of data, without WIFI or cellular coverage, the ability of your phone is useless. Similarly, your ability to hear God lies dormant until it is only activated by the Holy Spirit.

God wants you to know he is speaking to you, and that you can hear and obey by the Holy Spirit.

Loving Father, thank you for giving me the grace to hear and obey your voice. Activate my spiritual hearing in Jesus name.
