Five Things Every Christian
must have to Hear God’s Voice


Review of the first two:


1.  In order to hear God’s voice, you must have an understanding that God wants to direct the details of your life. Proverbs 3:6  “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” The word “ways” in Hebrew refers to the literal roads we take to get physically from one place to another. “Acknowledge” in Hebrew is yaw-dah.’ It means, learn to know – find out and discern God.


2.  You must have a knowledge of the two sources of your thoughts.


a.  Our thoughts come from the mind of our flesh / human wisdom and from the mind of Christ / Divine wisdom.


b.  The Mind of the flesh / human wisdom comes up from the answers to problems on the basis of reason and impulses.  Romans 8:6-7 (AMP), “now the mind of the flesh which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit is death…That is because the mind of the flesh with its carnal thoughts and purposes is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s Law, indeed it cannot.”


c.  Although our thoughts come from two sources, there are two modes under which the mind of the flesh can operate. It can operate inside the framework of God’s truth or outside the framework of God’s truth.


3.  In order to hear God’s voice, you must have a personal commitment to a renewed mind. A renewed mind is one that is saturated with the word of God. Joshua 1:8. 


a.  If we truly want to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus, we have to acknowledge that it all starts with the thoughts that trigger what we do and say. Romans 12:2 (NLT), “… let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”  


b.  At every stage of life, the cells of the brain have the capacity to grow new branches or “dendrites” that form new thought pathways. Our minds literally can be renewed. We can think like Jesus.     

c.  We can liken renewing our mind to the process of building a library. Out physical brain has a library waiting where our knowledge of God can be stored. Our brain does in fact file away in categories, everything our senses take in, as a memory.


d.  As we commit to renew our mind, by building a library of how God thinks, out foundational textbook, must be the word of God. It is God’s supreme authority for reviewing who He is to us.


e.  The larger it is (out library) the more detailed His conversation with us, will be. And each of us can have as large a library as we are willing to build.


f.  We bind a new book for the library of our knowledge of God each time we memorize a scripture verse or learn a new principle from God’s Word.


g.  Again if we want what we learn, about God to stay in the long-term division of our brain we must memorize it, study it or apply it in our daily living. The more we learn, the richer our library becomes. Romans 11:33, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!”


h.  If we merely hear the information, it will be deleted in the delete term division of our library. James 1:22, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only.”


i.  Building a library takes strategic effort and discipline. Flesh prefers carnal to truth.


j.  Satan wants to do the same God wants to do; use what’s in our library, to direct our behavior.


k.  He (God) uses words of truth that are completely new to us or words of truth we have already learned.


l.  When His time is perfect God will direct the Holy Spirit to speak to us by drawing to our conscious mind, a Scripture verse or principle; a book from our library. John 14:26
