Get in Tune with God—This Assessment Can Help!

The time between Passover and Pentecost (March-May) is a specific time and season for you to hear the voice of God. The spiritual atmosphere is ripe to receive revelation.

I have noticed that God is speaking very clearly right now, but we need to make some changes from the way we have heard Him in the past.

I developed a quick “hearing assessment” to help you get in tune and time with hearing the voice of God. These questions might seem elementary, but I do these things daily. I believe they will help you, too.

Hearing Assessment

Have you asked God to speak to you?

Doubt and unbelief can clog our spiritual ears from hearing God. We have to believe God wants to speak to us. So, get bold and ask Him to speak to you. If you already hear Him, then ask for more.

Are you reading the Bible regularly?

Reading the Bible regularly helps us understand His character and ways; it also helps us become more spiritually sensitive. God will often speak to us by impressing a verse on our minds.

In 1988 I received my life calling through a small prophetic word Bible. I heard a small voice inside—I knew it was the Holy Spirit—tell me to look up Isaiah 61. Honestly, I don’t think I had read the book of Isaiah at that point and had no idea what I would find.  I opened my Bible, read the first two verses and fell on the floor crying.

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor …” Isaiah 61:1-2 NIV

Ask God to speak to you through the Bible about your life or your situation.

Have you made it a point to practice hearing God?

Hearing God does not have to be all that complicated, but it does take practice! If you make the supernatural a natural part of your life, it will begin to increase. Whatever you focus on and do on a regular basis will become clearer and begin to grow.

Do not be afraid to make a mistake. In fact, God will use our mess-ups to help sharpen us. Spiritual gifts are not given to us in a mature state. The more we use them and the more training we seek out, the better we will understand, and the clearer things become.

Do you track your experiences with hearing God?
I take time each day to write down a few things that are happening in my life. This gets me to open my journal and record simple things that are going on: how I feel, my health, what is going on in my life, or dreams I had last night. If you do this, it will be easier for you to record when you hear God. Sometimes just being in your journal will jog your memory on things you may have forgotten.

Have you shifted your focus?

People everywhere are spending way too much time looking for demons instead of God’s angels. If you focus too much on the demonic, that is all you will see.

If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Proverbs 11:27 NLT

Likewise, if we spend too much time focused on what is wrong with ourselves and the world around us, it can be difficult to hear God for the good things He has in store for us and the world!

Take away

    Thank you Doug!! You are a blessing and share such encouragement!! I have been hearing / seeing God for many years and actually need a big breakthrough in hearing from God now regarding several critical matters on His specific direction for each situation.
    Or.. confirmation if He is saying what I feel He is saying … it’s kinda subtle . God bless you Doug!

    Hello Doug,
    Thank you so much for what you daily, weekly and annually for the Kingdom! I thank God for you on a regular basis; and, pray for your continued discipline and amazing obedience.

    I have been in a dry season for several months where I cannot remember my dreams as much and I am not as disciplined to record them when I do remember as I was in the past.

    I feel that this workshop would be beneficial to me, but I can’t swing it financially right now. Will this workshop be offered some time again in the near future.

      Hello Mr. Stacey. We all can go through seasons that feel a little “dry.” As you know, God is still fully with you during these times. Doug wrote an article on how dreams we do not remember can be some of the best ones to have! I hope that encourages you during this time.

      You can purchase the replay of the webinar when the timing is right for you. If you have trouble finding it in the store, please email me at help@dougaddison.com and I will be more than happy to help you :).

      And thank you so much for praying for Doug. We appreciate that so much and know that your prayers for us are powerful!

      I am praying for you Mr. Stacey to be filled with such joy! God adores you and is with you! Bless you!

    God bless you Prophet Doug. I too had the experience hearing God voice in 2004. May 18th. The Lord lead me to read Isiaih 61. I highlighted and dated , I cried as well. Another verse the Lord gave me was Jeremiah 1:5.
    I truly thank God for your life,
    Indeed God is speaking and He is speaking!
    I just want to know Him more!!!!!

        Hi Doug
        Thank you for this assessment! I do make it a point to ask God to speak to me & I have a notebook to write down what I’m hearing Him say to me. I’m learning to “tune in” being focused on what He is saying. God is using you & that’s very obvious!! 😁

          That is wonderful you are asking God to speak and writing down what you sense Him saying. Doug always says that is one of the best things to do when it comes to hearing God. Bless you Vicky!
