How do you hear the voice of the shepherd? Someone just asked me this question so here is my answer.
Know that God does want to talk to you. Most people don't believe that they are worthy of hearing God. Yes, you are worthy.
Embrace the big picture. If you are looking for details, stop. Accepting what God is offering to you at the moment is more important. This is an act of faith.
It is more about the journey than the destination. God never travels in a straight line. If have to trust where He is leading you in the moment.
Prayer and fasting have an incredible impact on the inner man. If you want God to get serious, get serious first.
Be still and know that He is God. Don't push yourself too hard. It really isn't as hard as you think.
Don't take a limited attitude toward what God may say. If you have already decided to reject something God may say, then you will never hear what God wants to say.
Anyone got any other suggestions?
PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me heard your voice. AMEN
