How to hear the voice of God

What does it mean to put God first?

Good morning on this Friday morning August 10, 2018. If we want to be successful in life as children of God, we must put God first. What does it mean to put God first? We all have different ideas, based upon our life experience. But I believe one of the first things that we do we put God first, is that his word is always first place in our heart and our mind. Were mindful of the things of the word of God. One example, is how do we treat others? Sometimes, people don’t always treat us in the best of ways. However, as children of God we have to be the ones to set the example and share the love of God with them, even when they’re not treating this well or others.

The Bible says to love your enemies and to speak well of them which despitefully use you.

Love for enemies is in the first place based in the character of God. Jesus says: Love your enemies … so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good … be perfect therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. [Matthew 5:44-48]

Love your enemies, in other words, because that is exactly what God does. He showers his providential care upon those who love him and upon those who ignore and even hate him. They receive his kindness, whether they regard him or not. A special sun does not shine on those who love God, leaving all the God-haters in deep darkness. It shines alike on all.

Jesus might have gone on to speak of God’s redemptive love, too. In Romans 5, Paul speaks of God’s particular love for us in that “while we were still his enemies” Christ died for the ungodly. The death of Jesus was the ultimate act of enemy love. He offered himself not while we were in the midst of turning to him, or because we had somehow shown that we had a spark of love for him.

On the contrary. That’s the love of the pagans, says Jesus, to love those who love you. Who doesn’t?

And so, here’s the central thing about enemy love. We love our enemies because as enemies we were loved.

I know this is difficult, but no matter what somebody does to us according to the word of God we are supposed to love them with all of our heart. What happens if we fail to love somebody?

I truly believe that if we hold hatred and unforgiveness in our heart, poison goes through her body and we are unable to be used by God. I believe that if we have unforgiveness and hatred in our body towards somebody, this blocks the promises of God.

Many people say they love God, that they hate their neighbor. In first John 4 – 20, the word of God says if a man say, I love of God, and hated his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he have seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And verse 21, the word of God says in this is the commandment have we from him, that he who love of God love his brother also.

Sometimes you have to love people by faith. You don’t have to spend a lot of time with somebody, you just simply have to love them.
I pray today that you have a fantastic day and we are praying for you. God bless you my friends. Until the next time.

How to hear the voice of God

How to hear from God. All of us want to hear the voice of God. How can you know if God is speaking to you? This is a question that many believers have. A lot of it has to do with the person being able to trust the voice that their hearing is the voice of God. True relationship God comes in the form of spending time with God. How much time do we spend with God every day? Sometimes the system manner of slowing down and focusing on God and being quiet and letting God speak to us in a way that we are going to understand.

What does it mean to speak to God — and to hear Him communicate back? This is a question that continues to be discussed and debated in religious and secular circles alike, especially in an era in which atheists and skeptics are increasingly vocal about their view that “listening to God” is problematic or, at the least, nonsensical.

Mark Batterson, pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C., and author of “Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God,” recently explained this dynamic during an appearance on PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk,” revealing how he believes God communicates with humans.

“There is a God who speaks and the truth is He’s speaking all the time … but I think God most often speaks in a whisper,” Batterson said. “1 Kings 19 calls it ‘that still, small voice’ and I have a theory. My theory is this: Yes, God has an outside voice — He can make it thunder. But He usually speaks in a whisper.”

Would you like to hear God’s voice on a regular basis? That has been a deep-seated desire since I found true relationship with Him.

Listen to My Voice

When I talk to my kids, I say, “Listen to my voice,” because I’m training them to recognize it and obey it. In the middle of the cacophony of voices, I need them to hear mine:

  • When we are enjoying others’ company, and their friends are clamoring for their focus, I want to be the one to have their attention at a moment’s notice.

  • If their sibling or friend is trying to tempt them, I want my kids to instead obey the words of life I am speaking to them.

  • When the voices of strangers are distracting, I need them to pick out my voice above the crowd and follow it.

David taught Solomon to treat his voice with utmost importance (Proverbs 4:3-4), and Solomon did the same with his son. So when mama lays down the law, you best do it, boy! Hey, I’m just following Solomon’s lead.

Hear, my son, your father’s instruction And do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Proverbs 1:8 NASB

In the same way, our Heavenly Father is calling us to know His voice to obey it.

The following is from a blog that I came across today. It talks about being obedient to the voice of God and doing what God tells us to do. Are we will ban the voice of God? My prayer:

There were a lot of little things to be grateful for today God. Thank you for every blessing and thank you for every thing you protected me from. I am ready for some rest time. Life is pretty exhausting right now. I need you more than ever.

What God Said Tonight:

Come and rest.

There are things to do, to learn, to experience, but not right now. right now, lay your head on my chest and close your eyes. I will keep a watch out and keep you safe. I will make sure that you awaken in time for the next big thing.

Just relax and rest in me. There is not a single thing for you to worry about or to do until I wake you.
