I want to assure you, you can hear from God, and using a Journal helps!
Before I learned to Journal I felt like I could hear from God, but I did not know how, and I did not know if he would speak to specific things.
Now after years of using both hand written and typed journals I’m fully convinced that you most certainly can hear God’s voice in a Journal.
Out of the Mouth of Two or Three Witnesses…
From 2 Corinthians 13:1 “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.”
This pattern is found throughout the Bible that in the mouth of to three witnesses a thing is established. I believe hearing from God is no different.
If you are hearing something you feel this from God and yet it is contrary to His Word then that is your own imagination. If someone is preaching something that is contrary to the Word of God, they are preaching their own words.
So I keep coming back to this and all of my learning to hear from God, everything should be backed to by something else.
The Three Witnesses
Anytime I have heard from God on something there are always at least two or three witnesses to what I heard.
- The Bible
- Rahma, or the Word you hear on the inside when you journal
This has become a rule that I apply for all aspects of my life and hearing from God, I ask does this agree with at least two or three of these witnesses?
To be completely clear, the Bible is always going to have what you hear from God in it already, the only difference is that we use different words to say the same things today.
