Listening to the promptings and thoughts from God are critical to experiencing transformation. But for many believers, the subject of listening to God seems intimidating, challenging or possibly impractical.

Yet at the same time, Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice..." in John 10:27. Jesus is the Living Word, speaking the heart of the Father. God has chosen to speak to us through His Son (Hebrews 1:2). This is a promise available to us. Yet at the same time, I don't meet a lot of people who have been personally taught how to listen to God in an effective and practical way. Too many people "wing it" but get easily discouraged.

Tuning Your Listening

The fact is, you are listening to thoughts all day long, so you have to determine what you will listen to. If you want to hear from God, then it's important that you tune your listening to hearing Him.

What we listen to determines a lot of things in our lives. We need to be intentional about what we listen to and how we listen, so that we can tune ourselves more to what God is saying and what He is saying over our lives.

Learning to Listen to God

In this episode, I want to share with you 10 important things that can help you in hearing from God and allowing yourself to be empowered by His thoughts toward you. Listening to God can be a daily habit that will change your life. But we all need some help and enhancement so that we are tuning into the frequency of heaven over our lives.
