For God speaks once, yes twice, yet man perceives it not.
Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live;
Learning a new language can be tough, especially if you don't know where to begin. If in your heart you believe God speaks but feel you need practical tips to recognize His voice, then this post is for you! I can help you with that.
Hearing from God is equivalent to learning to become fluent in a different language. God speaks in a way that is unique to Him yet relational to us. In Isaiah 55:3 incline means to lean towards God. God promised that when we draw near to HIm, He'll draw near to us (James 4:8). This is another sure statement. When we seek after Him with all of our hearts He will be found (Jeremiah 29:13).
It has been said, the best way to learn a new language is to fully immerse yourself in it. Immersion means to fully submerge yourself into a particular interest. We must do this when learning to hear from God so we recognize when He's speaking. Job 33:14 again reassures us God speaks, but we do not always perceive (pick up) what He is saying.
Below are ways we can fully immerse ourselves in the language of God.
1. Read God's Word: The bible is our foundation in getting to know God. The scriptures tell us that unless God builds the house those who build it labor in vain (Psalm 127:1). In other words, unless we go to God to lay our spiritual foundation in all areas of our lives we'll only be laboring in vain or forever learning but never come into the knowledge of His truth and who He is (2 Timothy 3:7). Just like the best way to learn a foreign language is to be taught by someone who fluently speaks the language, the best person to teach you God's language is God Himself. For we have received an anointing from Him to be discipled and taught by Him (1 John 2:27). Therefore, we must consult the Bible. In reading the bible, you learn God's heart, characteristics, attributes, will, mindset, who He is, what He does, and what He has done. It is in coming to know Him that we begin to recognize Him. To recognize Him is to see and hear him.
2. Build Intimacy: Intimacy means close familiarity or friendship. Friendships are built one day at a time by remaining in constant contact with one another - this too is how we get to know God. We become familiar with God by abiding in Him. When we do so He'll continue to abide in and with us (John 15:4). A good way to begin building intimacy with God is by consulting Him in all things and looking to Him to counsel you and give you advice.
