We certainly need to discern the Lord’s voice carefully these days, but let’s not over-spiritualize hearing from God. If God has something to say to us, He knows how to get His point across. It is our responsibility to listen with expectancy and test what we hear (I Thess. 5:20-21). I have also found that if what I am sensing is from God, it often stays with me for a period of time. Let’s continue to listen to the Lord, all the while realizing that we are only hearing a part of the whole message. The bible says, “For we know in part and we prophesy in part” (I Cor. 13:9). He may want to speak more to us, and He may want to speak to us in a way we are not accustomed to. This keeps us dependent on Him. So, let’s enjoy our relationship with Jesus, and remember, a key to hearing His voice is to stay humble and submissive to His will. He promises grace to the humble (James 4:6).
