Do you find yourself asking this question: “How do I know if what I’m hearing is from myself, from the enemy or other sources?” 

It’s important that you learn to discern the voice of God from other sources because new impartation for your destiny is coming right now!

Here’s how you can strengthen your ability to hear God at a whole new level.

Understand that hearing God is not complicated

Maybe you don’t know where to start in hearing God, but it doesn’t have to be a complex process!

Over 15 times in the Bible Jesus said, “You must have eyes to see and ears to hear the voice of God.” 

This is good news because it means that if we are willing to hear God—we will!

You may only need some practice

When I first started out on my journey to hear God more clearly, I knew it was important to practice.

We all have good gifts from the Lord, but they are not yet mature when we first receive them. Every gift must be developed!

A simple way to develop your discernment for God’s voice is by reading the Bible. The more you read the Bible and get familiar with how God speaks to His people, the more you’ll be able to recognize God’s voice in dreams, visions, prophetic words, etc.

The way you hear God has a lot to do with how God made you

If you have a teaching gift, you may naturally hear God’s voice through the Bible. If you’re a dreamer or a seer, you may see things in the spirit a lot. And if you’re an exhorter, you may hear God through encouraging words.

You can hear the Lord in all these ways, but how you naturally hear God may be an indicator of other gifts you possess!

Start recognizing when you seem to hear God the most clearly. His voice sounds like how a good father speaks to his children. We (as His children) recognize Him when we hear Him!

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27 NIV

You’re probably already hearing God

Have you ever been at the grocery store, and you get in one line and the other line goes faster, and you knew you should have been in that one? Well, there you go. You’re hearing God!

Or maybe you just thought of someone you haven’t heard from in a long time. Then you check your email or texts and find out they’ve tried to contact you!

It’s not just a coincidence. It’s a God incidence

When this kind of stuff happens to you, be sure to write it down. As you track what God is saying to you, you will become more confident in hearing His voice every day!

Be okay with making mistakes

Making mistakes is part of the learning process. It’s important to recognize this and not get discouraged if you “miss it” a little bit. That mistake will help you in the long run if you allow God to use that misstep as a lesson!

“To those who have ears, let them hear!” 

God’s voice is going to come alive to you this week as He speaks to you about your destiny. Keep your ears open! Blessings, Doug Addison
