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.
