Learning to Hear God Speak

Learning to Hear God Speak

I’ve had many people say to me, “I’m having trouble hearing the voice of God. How can I learn to hear His voice?”

Maybe you’ve asked the same thing yourself, so let me answer that question with an illustration. Suppose you and I are standing on opposite sides of a large auditorium and I want to talk to you. I try to yell across the room, but you can’t quite hear me. What could you do to hear me better? You could move closer to where I am standing!

Well, that’s what you need to do in your relationship with God. You need to draw much, much closer to Him than you are right now. You need to become so well acquainted with Him that you recognize His gentle, small voice in your spirit the moment He speaks.

How to Ensure Your Child’s Success, part 3

This is the last installment of a three-part article by Pastor Lynne. Here are links to part 1 and part 2.

4.     Put your children in God’s hands.

3.      Speak words of faith and love.

The third thing we must do to ensure our children’s success is speak words of faith and love to our children and about our children. If you don’t speak right words to them, it can hinder their lives and development.

Words are very powerful. Proverbs says life and death are in the power of the tongue. Jesus said in Mark 11:23 that you will get what you say. If you believe it in your heart and speak it out of your mouth, that principle in the Word works positively. Remember the woman with the issue of blood in Mark chapter 5? The Bible said that lady kept saying, “If I may but touch His garment, I shall be made whole.” She said it over and over again and what happened? She was healed.Continue reading

Changed by His Presence

Changed by His Presence

God has given us the prescription for supernatural change. He has said that as we all, behold “as in a glass the glory of the Lord, [we] are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV).

How do we behold the glory of the Lord?

We behold His glory by getting into His presence!

“Okay, Sister Hammond,” you may say, “I understand that I need God’s manifested presence to change me. But how do I find that presence?”
