I recently had a few friends ask me about how to hear from God. I wrote this Blog a while ago (Jan 2009) but I thought it was a perfect repost to address the needs of My Alabaster Box family that reached out to me regarding hearing from God. I pray that it blesses you...again!!!
Greetings to you that are reading this blog post. This one is going to be real personal with God and I believe that it will also speak to your heart...so get ready! I have been struggling a bit when it comes to hearing from God. I began to think about my brothers and sisters in Christ whom will say "God told me this", "God spoke to my heart on this matter", or "God led me here." I felt a sense of envy because I wanted to hear from God just like that with the matters of my heart at that time. I began to pray and ask God why couldn't I hear from Him in the same way as others. I felt at times that if He would just physically tap me on my shoulder or send an angel to prophesy into my life, I would know what He was trying to say to me. Well, as I prayed to God and told Him how frustrated I was, He led me back to a book that I had bought over a year ago. Little did I know that this book would answer all the questions I had about hearing from God and even lead me to the Word regarding other matters in my life and in my heart. I wasn't ready for "How to Hear from God" (Joyce Meyer) when I purchased it, but God was ready for me to grow spiritually in this area. I knew that I was being led to read and study the Word about How God speaks to His children. I picked up the book (and the Study guide) and I went into a quiet place to read, study, and to pray. My oh my did God speak to me then!!!!
