Listen Up! Your Destiny is Being Revealed!


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,

    Hi Doug,
    In Dec. 2018 I had 3 dreams which I wrote down. In doing so scripture chapter and verses came to me and I wrote those down. I believed they were prophetic. Something painful was about to happen in my life and God was telling me He would be with me comforting me. The next dream was where an angel was crafting a metal plaque with a cross on it which was for a casket. I was shown a mother had died which I took as a parent and the children were devastated at this death, but again God was there to comfort. The third dream showed me that I was about to unpack boxes to setup my Christian counselling ministry and God said you will not have a ministry in this church and I am taking you out and having you crossover to something new. I had been in this church for over 5 years and I thought of leaving it since it was so political and judgemental but I would stay until God led me out. At the time my husband and I both had concerns about the leadership we continued there and prayed about it. On March 20, 2019 my husband died suddenly beside me, slipping into Jesus’s arms. He and I were then in our early 70’s. We’d raised three of four grandchildren, having one boy with a disability to finish raising who is in grade 11. They were devastated but God sustained us. It seemed that the second dream was now fulfilled although I was shown it was a woman who died and I reasoned I was shown a woman because if it had been a man I would wonder if my husband or two sons were going to pass. The last dream was where God spoke to me clearly that He was leading me out of this church. I had to move my husband’s and my counselling business and in this dream I was in an office in this church and about to unpack and setup my ministry and God spoke and said you are not to unpack here and you will not crossover to this church as I have something new. Currently I am having home-church with my grandchildren and we are enjoying it. This week I was told that a mole taken off my face was cancerous and that it was not a serious cancer but my skin must be protected from the sun and watched for any other changes. Last night I dreamt that I had cancer and it was not operable and so I woke-up and wondered if that woman in the second dream was me but it seemed it was not since the three dreams I had this past December came to pass in sequence. I think the enemy planted this dream last night but I want more teaching and clarity about how God is speaking and when the devil tries to get in. A beautiful Christian woman who has been a mentor to me says I am a Seer and I don’t know much about what this means for me. I often feel very alone spiritually and wonder if this is a character defect. I hope that this dream last night was not of the Lord. God Bless, and thanks.

      Hey Arlene! Thanks for sharing. We do not have a place to send in dreams for interpretation.

      I am so sorry about the loss of your husband. I am praying for you to have clarity. God bless you!

    Hi Doug. The Lord gave me a Y/A screenplay/book called “What if It’s All Been a Lie?” I had actor Jeremy London try to put it in screenplay format, but that didn’t work out well. Anyway, it’s now ready to be presented to a producer, and I was hoping to get Richard T. Jones, of “The Rookie”, to see if he’d be interested. If you have any suggestions of contacts, please do whatever you can to help me. It’s a fictional story, but warns youth about the dangers of the occult. Thanks for whatever you can do. Blessings, Nancy
