How Can I Hear God Clearly?

Posted by Chip D Thompson on June 13, 2015 in Journaling |

I think you could relate hearing God clearly to the fountain of Youth, it seems all men seek it, but non find it.

So maybe that is the wrong question because it is too wide. What about hearing God on a single topic? Or about a single day?

I feel the second choice is best. So I work to hear from Him on the little daily things.


Where I Struggle

So if I was to try to solve a big issue like, when is Jesus coming back? That would be too big. This is obviously an exaggerated question, but it gets my point across.

So my challenge is to remember to ask the right questions, something I know I can deal with.

Something else is knowing that I can hear from God. I think this is kind of like the opportunity to be afraid, you will never outgrow it.

When it takes faith there will always be an opportunity to fear. So I would be leaving something out to say I don’t struggle to hear from God sometimes.

But I think this is human, and healthy. Sorta like lifting weights in the gym, the resistance is there to help you grow.


Where I Am Strong

I have not found anything He won’t answer. So I stay away from asking questions that don’t pertain to me.

I think it’s sort of like something I heard one time. The woman said you can’t pray for people outside your area.

For example, you can easily pray for the people in your town or city. Because you know exactly what they’re facing.

But it is much more difficult to pray for perfect strangers in another country, that you never met.

So I aim to stay with things that are in my domain.


Parting Advice

Keep It Super Simple! Otherwise known as KISS.

God is your friend. He loves you. And frankly, He normally talks and short sentences. He loves to tell stories illustrate his love for us.

You can never hear him wrong to the point He would stop talking. You can never offend him, or hurt him in such a way that He would go way.

So get out there, and practice hearing. Just like anything we do, we get better with practice.
