Do you struggle to hear God’s voice? Oftentimes, we need to slow down, be still, and pay attention in order to hear the voice of God. Danielle shares three ways that God will often “whisper” us.
Snippet from the Show
Whatever is burdening you, bring it to Jesus.
How many of us say we don’t know what God is saying to us, and yet we never bother to open that big book called “God’s Word”? You know, the Bible? God truly speaks to us through Scripture and we should make time to read, reflect, and listen to it every day. I share a recent example where God “whispered” to me through Luke 24.
No, your feelings should not run your life, but they do matter! How we feel, whether we have anxiety of peace, can tell us a lot about ways God is calling us to act and change. If you don’t have peace about something, even something you are convinced is God’s will, spend some prayer time focused on it, and try to hearwhatGod is telling you through that unrest.
This is not a popular idea, but you need to make room for silence in your life. If you fill every spare moment with noise, busyness, and distraction, how will you ever hear a whisper from God in the midst of all that? Spend at least a few minutes every day in silent prayer. Sit in God’s presence and open your heart to receive whatever he wants to give you.
