Hearing Jesus here, there, and everywhere

Most Christians spend far more time hearing what the world is saying than they do hearing what the Spirit is saying. God makes sense when you’re really listening to Him, but not when you’re running from Him.

Hearing God’s voice is learnable. You learn to hear Him by listening to Him. God is speaking in ways that ordinary people can hear but many people don’t believe that they hear Him when they do because they don’t like what He says.

The voice of Jesus in a human heart isn’t sound based. His voice is multifaceted. He speaks through inner impressions, insights, inspiration, ideas, images, thoughts, promptings, sensations, awareness, and more. If you are one of His sheep, you have the capacity to hear His inner voice. To ignore what the Spirit is saying to you is to miss out on the glory of divine connection!

Conversational prayer, hearing God and not just talking to Him, is amazing! You can hear Jesus here, there, and everywhere! Hearing Jesus is about getting to know Him better. If you want to honor Jesus, listen to and obey what He is saying to you.

Be courageous to hear what God is actually saying to you and not just what you wish He would say. (Few people are willing to hear the risen Jesus say anything that they don’t want Him to say.)

The Bible is God’s gift of a spiritual hearing aid. If you’ll humbly read what God said through prophets, apostles, and others, you’ll begin to hear Him speaking. If you will read the Bible with the desire and intent to listen and obey, you’ll be amazed at what happens in your heart!

When I open the Bible and open my heart while I read it, my inner ears open up and begin to hear what the Spirit is saying to me today. Ancient words from God span the millennia and tune my spirit to God’s contemporary voice speaking within me, releasing rivers of living water and restoring my soul. To me, the Bible is exhilarating! I love reading it and can’t ever get enough of it.

Endlessly listening to lectures isn’t a great to learn to swim or to follow Jesus. Be courageous and listen directly to His voice! Hearing sermons without hearing God’s Spirit is a waste of time. Listen to the risen Jesus talking in your heart.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
