Do you find that God speaks to you in a powerful, audible voice? Or do you have a hard time discerning if God is speaking to you at all? In this episode of God Hears Her, Elisa and Eryn discuss a number of ways we can hear God.
Notes and Quotes:
“The title of this podcast is God Hears Her, and to be honest it has always thrown me. God hears her . . . wait, how do we hear God?” God speaks to us during our Scripture reading. Some of us may hear God audibly, whether it be loud and known or as a soft whisper. We can hear from God through other people: our mentors, friends, family. Be sure to discern appropriately whether the person speaking into you is doing it from the heart of God. Review their words against Scripture and allow God to confirm. God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit, the living Word of God. This can sometimes bring out unexplainable emotion in you, even tears. Eryn’s unplugged morning routine: 1. What am I feeling? 2. Recap yesterday. 3. Talk to God. What is on your heart and mind? 4. Confess. 5. Invite Him in: “God, what do you want to tell me?” 6. Open up Scripture. Journaling can allow us to hear and connect with God. Listen for God while you enjoy art, nature, music, books, conversation, or even a Bible study. Pick a word. Each year focus on a word that God has given to you and really lean into His wisdom and focus on that word. “How do I hear God? Sometimes it’s in the silence of just sitting and knowing that He hears me.” Links:
