We have all heard the pastor preach, learn how to be still for God’s Voice. Do we really listen for God’s voice? Over the last 8 weeks, I have learned how to be still by turning off all distractions that include the television, music, and my phone. How else do you expect to hear God’s voice. It’s getting in that quite place so that you release all thoughts that were negative and unclear. Release those thoughts to replace with positive energy so that you may hear God’s voice and plan for your life. It starts with you learning to be still and listen.
Is it hard learning how to be still? No, it is not hard at all but if you are not use to complete quietness then you may experience a few distractions. I have a few tips to help you prepare yourself to be still for God’s voice.
- Turn off everything including television, laptop, and radio.
- Get your mindset ready by meditating and prayer asking the Holy Spirit to rise up in you.
- If you need to play a gospel music to get your mindset and thoughts to enter that spiritual realm by all means do so.
- Focus on God’s word and his voice.
- Trust the Holy Spirit.
- Be still and just be quiet so that you listen for his voice.
Don’t be so quick to get up from your private room or prayer closet. A lot of times we do all the talking to God, but not too much listening to God. He knows our thoughts before we even think them ourselves. So, why not be still for clarity, guidance, direction, and his voice. You practice being still long enough you will learn to discern his voice from any other voice. These quite times will help you to let go of the things that are blocking you from greatness. This quiet time will give you clarity of the people who are in your life for season and those for a lifetime.
Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go… purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out. Tina Turner
Life is too short without God’s voice guiding you to your true destiny and showing you what your true purpose in this life is. Don’t you want to tap into his voice? Learn to be still so that you can come into your true self. I am not perfect, but I am learning to walk with God and tap into my passion that is guiding me into my purpose. We were all placed here in this world to serve a purpose. What’s your purpose? Who are you serving?
