Do you want to hear God more clearly for your life? Yes, you can increase your ability to hear God, and I would love to tell you how. As a prophetic trainer for over a decade, I have taught thousands to up their game, get closer to God and hear Him more clearly. Let me explain more.
The key to increasing your ability to hear God is this—give it away. This key is based on 2 huge spiritual principles:
1. The more you give, the more you receive.
2. What you sow, you shall reap yourself.
When you freely give out prophetic and encouraging words to people, then it opens up the spiritual principle of receiving more from God. This also applies when you interpret dreams and tattoos. Giving generously will take you to a whole new level.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 NIV
The context of Luke 6:38 is not giving money but giving love and forgiveness; though it will work for giving money as well, because it is a spiritual principle from God.
The second principle is that you will get what you give. So, if you give out a lot to others, you can expect that your good Father in Heaven will return what you have dealt out.
“A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7b NIV
If you find yourself complaining or grumbling then you might be reaping back negativity in your life. If it develops into a lifestyle then it can take away your authority in prayer and hinder your ability to hear the voice of God clearly.
Throughout my life, I have always given in the areas that I lack. I once gave out 500 prophetic words in 2 days. After I did that, I received an amazing amount of revelation just a few days later. You do not have to give out 500 prophetic words too, because it will look different for each person. But I make sure that I give out encouragement on a daily basis.
Ask God to highlight someone you meet in your daily life. Even if you give just one encouraging word or verse to a friend, you are on your way to making a positive flow of revelation back towards you.
Doing these simple steps will not only help you hear God more clearly, it will keep your heavenly bank account full of blessings. Go ahead and try it out.
