Ears to Hear God – Part 5

hearing from God pic“Out of the abundance of the heart,
the mouth speaks.”
Luke 6:45

As we’ve been learning how to develop our spiritual hearing, we’ve found out that God not only wants a personal relationship with us, but He wants us to be able to hear Him and allow His words to influence and direct our lives.

Hearing from God is so vital in your everyday life and fellowship with Him. He will speak to you through a variety of ways—when you hear His Word preached/shared, or as you hear the voice of the Holy Spirit speak into your heart because He will always declare what God says, what Jesus did, and what God has for you.

Hearing words, whether from man or from God, is like taking small seeds and planting them. If the words become planted in you, like any natural seed, they will spring forth. Not all seeds are good seeds. Just take a look outside at your lawn and you’ll quickly recognize the weeds, the bad seeds. Yet, they continue growing unless you get rid of them, right?

Planting good seeds is part of discerning what you hear. You can plant a bunch of garbage if that’s what you’re taking in each day and listening to–what you’re allowing into your heart. Or, you can plant God’s blessings by planting His Word into your heart.

Solomon said to guard your heart because from your heart flow the issues of life. From what’s planted in your heart come forth the deliverance and boundaries of your life, and it’s all connected to what you allow yourself to hear.

Today be aware of what you are hearing, the seeds you are allowing to filter through your ears and into your heart. I know if you’re willing to have ears to hear what the Holy Spirit will tell you today then your spiritual hearing will definitely improve, and you’ll continue planting seeds of God’s love and grace.
