3 Ways to know that you hear from God

Featured Post

When we are experiencing hardships in our marriage, jobs, with our children, health (mentally and/or physically) or any other situation that brings upon burden and heart break, the most common question we begin to ask ourselves is: “How do I know if I am hearing from God?”

 

All of a sudden we feel overwhelmed and cloudy. The still voice that once was so easy to hear and discern now seems so far away. The burden and heartbreak now becomes the loudest sound in our lives.

 

We suddenly forget what we have learned and how to hear from the Lord, instead we listen to the voices of people that surround us.

 

Many times I have experienced hardship, and each time, the one area I try to focus all my strength on is hearing the voice of God and knowing with full confidence it is Him.

 

It is not a easy task. It takes strength to preserve, courage to tell the lies no, wisdom to know the difference, and focus to surpass the bad.

 

From experience, what had always helped me the most to get through times such as this, is wisdom from a godly mentor and reflection from what the Lord has already taught me.

 

This is why I enjoyed Latoya’s post this week. Her experience perfectly matches up to the steps that Gods asks us to take when following His directions.

 

But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deuteronomy 4:29 ESV

 

Here is Latoya’s post featuring on Salt & Light Link Up…

 

I needed answers. I wasn’t used to hearing from God but I knew that if I was going to continue to grow during my trials I needed to have my ears tuned to that still small voice. There were times that I thought I heard Him speak to me, but honestly, I wasn’t sure.

 

In the past there were times that I was sure I heard from the Lord, but I was wrong.

 

Looking back, I realize that I wasn’t taking the time to actually hear. I was depending on other people to hear for me. I learned the hard way how dangerous that is.

 

Several bad relationships had led me to a place where I really didn’t trust myself. It happens with abuse victims. You are controlled for so long and you are told that you are crazy for so long that you eventually start to believe it. I mean, when church leaders and half a congregation all have such nice things to say about a person it must be God speaking, right?

 

I was wrong. But as I began to heal and grow, I was determined to learn to hear from God. I knew that He wanted to talk to me so I decided that I needed to learn how to listen.
