Five Things Every
must have to Hear Gods Voice
Review of the first two:
1. In order to
hear Gods 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 Gods
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 Gods truth or outside
the framework of Gods truth.
3. In order to hear
Gods 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),
God transform you into a new person by changing
the way you think. Then you will learn to know
Gods 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
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 Gods 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 Gods
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 whats
in our library, to direct our
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
