Hearing God.

Matthew 13:16

People have different views about hearing God.
Some believe God exists but doesn't speak to anyone.
Some believe God speaks to only a select few, those He chooses to speak to.
Some believe God doesn't exist and therefore there's no point trying to hear a God who is not real.
And some believe like I do that God is a speaking God and He talks to people.

Irrespective of the different views out there, what the Holy scriptures inform is what is the truth.
The voice of God is meant to be heard by His sons and daughters. John 10:3-4.
The voice of God is one of the greatest asset of a believer.
God's voice directs, helps, inspires, brings confidence and helps to prevent mistake. John10:5

Hearing God's voice can protect and preserve your life.
Hearing God's voice can change your life forever.
Isaiah 9:8
God is a speaking God.
He is a Father who communicates with His children.
There will be days and times God speaks audibly.
There will be other times He communicates with us in ways we can understand.
God's voice can come to you audibly and also in a still small voice.

The scriptures teach us some things about the voice of God:
1) God's voice can come to you when you seek His guidance. 1 Samuel 30:8
2) God's voice will come to you when God sees you're ready to obey. John15:14,15
3) God's voice is not often loud. 1 Kings 19:11-13
4) God's voice can come to help you or declare judgement. Revelation 1:16
5) God's voice is powerful. Psalm 68:33
6) God's voice will come to the spiritually mature. Luke 1:80
7) God's voice will be heard by the humble. James 4:6

The voice of God is important
Our spiritual ears must be opened to hear.
Having physical ears doesn't mean you hear God's voice.
Having physical ears doesn't mean your spiritual ears are opened. Mark 8:18
When our spiritual ears are opened we will hear God's voice when He speaks to us.
We should aim for spiritual maturity, as we mature in God and get to know Him better through the process of a renewed mind we will become more sensitive to God and our spiritual ears become opened to hear God. Romans 12:2

We need to hear God to enter His purpose for our lives. Jeremiah 33:3
You don't automatically know your purpose.
God has to tell you or reveal your purpose to you. God's voice will lead you to your purpose.
We need God's voice and Word when we are confused, afraid and discouraged. Isaiah 43:1
We need to hear God's voice to cooperate with God and walk with Him. Amos 3:3

Since God's voice come most times as a still small voice, it helps when we practice 'stillness' and meditation to discern and receive the voice of God.

Prayer And Fruitfulness.

John 15:7-8

It's God's will that we are fruitful.
To be fruitful we have to be productive.
Being fruitful means you are producing.
You have to be productive to be fruitful.
Fruitfulness refers to your results.
Our fruitfulness as God's people is connected to our connection to Jesus Christ.

Prayer helps us stay connected to God.
John 15:5
That connection brings fruitfulness and results.
Fruitfulness is part of God's blessing.
Genesis 1:28
Part of the purpose of prayer is to bring results.
If we don't believe God will answer our prayers we won't pray.
When God gives you what you asked for in prayer you can say that prayer brought results.
John 14:13
So prayer brings fruitfulness.

Prayer brings spiritual, material, moral and even career and financial results.
Daniel was a man given to prayer and purity.
Morally he was fruitful. Daniel 6:4
Materially he was fruitful. Daniel 2:48
Spiritually he was fruitful. Daniel 1:17
His career and finances also had results/fruit. Daniel 5:29

The results or fruitfulness of Daniel's life was linked to his prayer life. Daniel 6:11
Daniel's promotion, Daniel's wisdom, Daniel's deliverance and the skill and favour he enjoyed was all linked to his relationship with God. Daniel 6:4-11

Daniel's relationship with God is the result of a consistent, persistent and regular time with God. Daniel 6:10

Be Strong.

Ephesians 6:10

We need strength to survive in this world, which means we have to be strong!
God wants us to be strong in Him.
This means we should be confident in God, trusting always in Him irrespective of what things look like around us. 1 Chronicles 16:11
To be strong is to be like Abraham.
Abraham was a man who hoped against hope when there was no physical reason to hope.
Romans 4:18
That is strength! This is an example of being strong.

Being consistent in prayer, praying in season and out of is a form of strength. Ephesians 6:18
You need to be strong to prevail against the enemy and what the world will throw at you.
The major type of strength you will require is spiritual strength. Ephesians 3:16
The Apostle Paul talks about strength in our inner man.
Strength in the inner man is strength that is spiritual.
It is God given spiritual strength.
It is spiritual strength that's been built up as a result of spiritual growth.

Many things are similar about the physical and spiritual dimensions.
God wants us strong spiritually. As you grow spiritually you develop spiritual strength.
Your physical strength is important and it matters to God and should matter to you. But it's your spiritual strength that will benefit you more. 1 Timothy 4:8
Godliness brings spiritual strength.
Holiness brings spiritual strength.
There is a grace for spiritual strength. 2 Corinthians 12:9

You need spiritual strength to take on the enemy. Mark 3:27
God wants you to be a 'spiritual strong man'.
You should be a 'spiritual strong man' who is depopulating the Kingdom of darkness and taking back what the enemy has stolen.
This doesn't happen without a fight.

Satan is a skilled fighter who has many more experiences in warfare above human beings.
You will need spiritual strength to face him, stand toe to toe with him and defeat him.
You can defeat the enemy.
The greater one lives within you. 1 John 4:4
You need spiritual strength to withstand the storms of life.
Endurance is an aspect of spiritual strength. 2 Timothy 2:3
We win by endurance.

See More, Have More.

Genesis 13:15

God had a great inheritance for Abraham but Abraham had to see it first.
God has more for you than what you have right now.
In God there is always more. 2 Kings 6:16

There is more of His anointing, His power, His grace, His faith, His strength,, His dreams and revelations available to His children.
In 2017, there is more for you in God so don't settle for less.
You also have a responsibility to  to do certain things to receive your 'more' from the Lord.
John 2:5

One of the things we need to know and do to receive our 'more' from the Lord is to see better.
Our ability to see better goes a long way.
Sight matters.
What you don't see, you cannot benefit from.

By sight I am not referring purely to physical sight but our vision, our imagination and the eyes of our understanding. Ephesians 1:18
What we see is what we get.
You need to see more to get more.
What you cannot see you may never have.

As God had more for Abraham, He has more for you.
God had more in store for Joseph than his past and present experience of being in Potiphar's house.
God had the palace in mind for Joseph, God had rulership in store for Joseph. Genesis 41:14-40
God has more in store for you and He wants you to see it!
God had more in store for David than being a shepherd boy. 2 Samuel 7:8
God had more in store for Peter, and Andrew than being fisher men. Matthew 4:19

God in His faithfulness helps you to see what He has for you.
It is a spiritual law that you have to see it before you possess it.
God helped Abraham to 'see' by showing Him the stars. Genesis 15:5
God helped Joseph to 'see' by giving him dreams that are prophetic and apply to his destiny.
Genesis 37:2-11
God helped Jacob build his own business by giving him a dream that revealed the strategy to build his own business while he was working with his uncle Laban.

It is not everyone who has eyes that see right.
God is willing to reveal to you what you must know.
God is willing to show you what you need to see.
What you hear you will meditate and imagine upon.
What you hear also matters this is why God speaks to us.

How does God help us see right?
1) By His Word: Gods Word is likened to light. Light helps us see right. Psalm 119:105
God's Word shows us who we are and what we can have.

2) By His Holy Spirit: God's Spirit helps us 'see' spiritually.
John 16:15
Gods Spirit speaks to us, reveals to us, and shows us things!

3) By Dreams and Visions: Dreams and visions are part of the language of the Holy Spirit.
God can give you visions and dreams about who you are and what you can have.
Genesis 46:2
Isaiah 6:1-8
Ezekiel 1:4-14

4) By opening the eyes of our understanding: Ephesians 1:18
God is the one who makes us understand what we need to understand.
When the eyes of our understanding is opened, we 'see' well and know what we need to know.

5) The use of our imagination: Colossians 3:2
Your imagination is from your mind.
Our imaginations are powerful!
The purpose of our imagination is not for thinking up evil pictures in our minds or plotting evil.
Our imagination has been given to us for our good.
Thinking pictures of good and blessing.

Prayer: A Key to Overcoming Wickedness.

1 John 5:19

There is no denying it, wickedness exists.
The Bible shows us wicked spirits are real and wicked human beings are on earth.
It is Satan who puts a wicked nature in people.
There are wicked people who have sold out deliberately to the devil. We have wicked people who don't like God's anointed or anything that has to do with the move or things of God.
Psalm 2:1-4

The chief architect of wickedness is Satan. Ephesians 6:16
Satan has a team of wicked spirits which are demons and fallen angels who work with him as a team. Ephesians 6:12
They work in unity to achieve Satan's mandate of stealing, killing and destroying. John 10:10

In today's world the effects of Satan and his team can be seen all around us.
Voodoo, Satan worship, false religion, deceptive teachings, family hatred, uncontrolled anger, evil schemes, false prophets and teachers, dream attacks, nightmares are all works of the enemy.

Despite the wickedness in this world and Satan's control, God makes a way of escape for His own.
1 Corinthians 10:13
In spite of the evil in this world God has given power and authority to His children to live above it and overcome it. Luke 10:19
That power is the power of the Holy Spirit with you.
The power and the Spirit comes through prayer. Acts 2:1,2

Your 6 advantages over Satan:
1) The name of Jesus Christ. Philippians 2:10
2) The blood of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:11
3) The Word of God. Matthew 4:4,7,10
4) The grace of God. 2 Corinthians 12:9
5) Your salvation. Romans 10:9,10
6) Your confession. Psalm 81:10
