As we close out our series “How Do We Hear God”, we will be addressing some of the personal and subjective ways that God speaks to us.
I was trying to get ready for a wedding. I can’t find the clothes I was going to wear. I run to the car in my underwear… hopefully they are in the car. My hair won’t dry. It’s because I left the aloe in it. I rinse it out, super good, scrub scrub scrub. I dry it. For a second I’m Sofia Vegara (just go with it). My hair looks fabulous. I go the restroom and notice a spot on my head in the mirror. I look closer and find that I have a 3×3 bald square on the top. What?!?! How did I miss that while styling? Maybe no one will notice since I’m Sofia Vegara #fingerscrossed #yeahright #onlyinmydreams

God said, “You need to be at Journey this Sunday!”

How Do You HEAR God?
Is it an audible voice? An inner voice? Is it masculine or feminine? Do you just “sense” Him? Do you read His Words? Do you see His words in other writings…in nature…everywhere? Is His voice the same for everyone?
How do you KNOW it’s God’s voice that you’re hearing?
This Sunday we kick off a series about How We Hear God. It’s a HUGE part of our faith journey to understand and communicate with God.
One of my favorite verses about God’s voice is in Isaiah.
Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say,
“This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left.
I always loved picturing God behind me talking as I made decisions – to the right or left. It gave me assurance that if I was really listening – I would HEAR HIM.
However, there are been plenty of times in my life where this hasn’t been my experience. I’ve spoken out loud… and heard nothing in return. There have been other times that His voice was so overwhelming that I was brought instantly to tears, pulled my car over, and just started walking and talking with Him.
After asking some of our leaders at Journey their own personal experiences of hearing God, they all shared something different. Some hear Him best while reading scriptures. Some hear Him when they go for a run in the morning because it’s just the two of them. Some hear Him in dreams and visions, while others hear Him through their conscience while meditating in prayer.
There is no one way that God speaks, but we have to be listening if we want to Hear God.
So join us over then next few weeks as we consider How We Hear God! See you on Sunday at 9 and 11am.
