Listening for God
ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS, Beloved of God, John 3:16, 12:24-26, 17:20-26
LISTENING for God, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 2/18/19 ( Across my desk today)
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27, NIV)
When Routine Becomes A Rut
Do you have a daily routine? The truth is, much of life is routine, and we can become stagnant if we’re not careful. We need to take the time to stop and listen to God’s voice. Maybe He’s telling you it’s time to get some better relationships. Perhaps He has a different career path or job opportunity for you. Maybe the Lord is just encouraging you to develop a positive attitude or healthier habits. Is God asking you to step out of your comfort zone? You can’t stay in the safe zone all of your life and expect to fulfill your highest potential. Be bold and willing to do something out of your usual routine that honors God in a greater way. When you take the initiative and move from your “safe zone” to your “faith zone,” that is when God will move on your behalf and begin to do greater things in your life. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
A Prayer for Today
“God, it’s time for me to be still and listen. As I spend time in prayer and in the Word, speak to me, O Lord. Tell me what I need to hear and give me the courage to make the desires and dreams of my heart come to pass. ”
Of all of the teaching in the whole Bible this is probable one of the most important. To be able to hear GOD, The Holy Spirit, speak to you in your heart (subconscious, ed) is profoundly important. Hearing God speak to me has saved my life 3 times that I am aware of and totally changed the direction of my life at least twice. There are thousands of verses in the Bible concerning learning to hear the Voice of God. In writing to you often His presence is so real that it is like HE is here in my Study writing through my hands thoughts that are way beyond my training and abilities. I could fill up many pages full of scripture on this subject but rather than giving you a fish, allow me to teach you how to fish this time.
On Google there is an easy place to put a connection (Add shortcut) (+) Call it bible and put there:
Then go to Bible Gateway Keyword Search and for Bible put in English
Enter Word: (hearing) (hear) (sound) or any other word or words of interest.
For Select Version add King James Version (About 30 other versions to choose from but a good place to start)
Under Options add under Display 
check Limit search and open box at the down arrow to New Testament or your study area in the whole Bible.
Then at the bottom of the file click Search
It is not as thorough as a Strong’s Concordance but it is so very fast and easy and blows away the cobwebs so fast.
Also note that at the bottom of your 25 search there may also be an addition page of scripture to click to.
To reset hit the back button top left and you will be able to start over.
Have fun with this stuff and Grow in Christ Jesus and learn to hear HIS voice as HIS voice never changes.
Yours, in HIS great love, Ken<>< (My apology if you already know how to fish.)
