I’ve been there. It’s actually a frustrating place to be. You feel like you are drowning while waiting on God to speak and bring life-saving peace. It wasn’t until I got so sick of my situation that I got refocused on hearing from God.
When you get desperate enough for a Word you will make the changes necessary to hear from God.
Listen in to this week’s episode and get refocused on hearing from God.
4 P Steps to Better Hear from God
If you do not make hearing from God a priority in your life, you will not be able to hear above life’s noises.
Determine above all you want to hear from God.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Until you make hearing from God a priority, your ears will only hear the distractions of the world. [tweet that, eh?]
Prioritize God in your calendar. What time works best for you?
2. Position or Place
What place is most free of distraction for you? Your office, bedroom, a comfy chair in the living area, or the kitchen table.
Luke 5:16 “Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”
In this season of your life are their less distractions in the early hours or evening hours?
Be intentional about figuring out a plan that works for you.
What will help you stay focused on listening? highlighters, colored pencils, journals
What translation of the Bible is easiest for you to read?
Psalm 5:3 “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
