I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (Psalm 32:8 NIV)
It is almost mind boggling to try and understand why an infinite and almighty God would want to commune with His creation. He does so, not as an odd event, but on an ongoing basis with those who have been “born again”; the simple acknowledgement of sin, acceptance of Jesus as saviour and surrender to Him as Lord.
We have looked at hearing through circumstances and inner peace. Here are some more direct ways He will lead and guide you. A rhema word can come through a scripture that really impacts you. When you read your bible, ask the Holy Spirit to highlight His will for you. Often a verse will almost leap of the page, or certainly draw your attention significantly.
Sometimes someone is speaking and you are struck by a phrase of sentence that is highlighted to you. This is God speaking to you. Take note, listen and begin to discern what is from God.
These words are often a final conformation of a decision of important direction, that you already have peace about and the circumstances have all lined up.
Don’t discount more dramatic intervention from God. He can and does, speak through prophesy, dreams, visions and even angels. It’s not as crazy as it sounds. We are on an important mission and in a spiritual battle for souls.
I have learned to value more the input of others. Don’t underestimate Godly counsel and listening to those God has place around you. Some who have been there before, can bring a word of wisdom or insight.
Quick Prayer “Jesus, speak to me in my daily life, as I go about the business you have called me to. Amen”
