Hindrances to Hearing God’s Voice

by Dan Goddard

Q- Am I doing what God called me to do?

 Q- Am I where He called me to be?

 Q- Do I know the answer to these questions?

 Q- Do I want to know the answers to the questions?

 Q- Do I obey when God gives direction?

 *** Why does God not answer me when I call to Him OR why can’t I hear Him answer me?

 A- Have I obeyed the last times that He spoke to me? = My past unrepentant disobedience.

 A- Do I listen with my head or my heart?  = A lack of intimate relationship with God.

 A- Do I expect God to answer? = Unbelief/incredulite or indifference/insincere.

 A- Do I have a backup plan of my own? = Impatience and fear of missing it.

 A- Do I get confused as to what to do: IE- Is it God, me or is it the devil? =Lies that I believe about Gods heart that manipulate me.

 ** (James 1:2-8) – We must have our broken hearts healed to live whole-heartedly!

 ** (Jeremiah 29:11-13) – We must know the truth about God’s heart for us!

 ** (John 4:24) – God is Spirit, and we must communicate with Him through our spiritual hearts.

     Our will, mind, emotions and physical body assist us and give visible expression to our communication with God; but: it is our spiritual heart that touches the heart of God!

 ** (Revelations 2:7) God wants to lead His church and He has given us spiritual eyes and ears to hear and see!

 PRAYER:  (Ephesians 1:15-19)
