What hearing God does not mean?

Its important to understand that all human problems come from hearing God wrongly. If we are in the image of God in order for us to understand ourselves righty we have to first understand God.

The very idea of hearing God can be troublesome because God communicates in many ways dreams visions, actions in the physical world, the bible.

But did you know the bible can kill you because when reading the bible there are many ways we can bring ourselves to the bible and not understand it. “if a jackass looks into a mirror he will not see an apostle looking out” and very often the bible is a mirror and we see what we bring to it.

We have to read the bible on the assumption that we don’t already know what it says, we have to come before it humbly, repentantly assuming that you haven’t got it.

Thats is important because when God is speaking to us we must always leave it in a position where we are not in control. Because the desire to control is one of the many ways that we fail to hear God. The desire to make him say what we want him to say.

So when we come into conversations with God we want to abandon our hopes for control

What about motive? why do you want to hear from God. Do you want to hear from God when you don’t have a need. Or are you actually trying to use God’s guidance to keep you safe. Many people want to know the will of God so they will not be responsible for their actions, they can say God said it, He told me to do it.

But responsibility is the heart to our relationship with God.

We can be on the wrong side of life because we are on the wrong side of God.

Guidance is not the focus of a conversational relationship with God. If you had a child and the only time they talked to you was because they wanted guidance you would realize there was something wrong with that relationship.

Some people think if God is not telling them what to do all the time they are out of the will of God. But that is not the idea of how God develops his saints.

YOu can try too hard to hear God. In a conversational relationship you have to leave initiative for the other person, you have to leave space and also not think about yourself the whole time.

Bible roulette is another way people try to hear form God, you open the bible point your finger and say thats what God told me to do. Have you discovered that you don’t have to be right all the time for God to work with you. Sometimes you have to remember that just because God blesses something it doesn’t mean it was his preference, we don’t have to be right. But its not the right way to try to hear from God.

There are real problems that come from methods of forcing God to tell us something. But you do not force a conversation, you respect, you wait and you listen.

Another problem is that people often assume that people in authority bring Gods word and God’s will. it often happens in a context where people are not taught to hear Gods word for themselves, so when the person in authority says God said, they don’t know what to say. This always leads to terrible things.

Many people have trouble hearing God because they think he is far off, space is an issue. BUt space and distance is not a problem for God

Hearing God is not about getting a word or a verse it is about developing our character by being with God

So hearing from God is not getting a free pass from having the anxiety to make decisions

People who are locked into managing their own worlds can superstitiously start doing things. In superstition there is no natural connection between what you are trying to manipulate, and what makes a connection natural is that you don’t cook it up

patience

“I’m trying to be more patient. I want everything to happen right now, when I know I should be going slow and paying my dues.””In what area are you most impatient?””I know I should say ‘career,’ but honestly, I really want to fall in love.””How do you pay your dues in love?””You’ve got to meet a lot of people. You can’t just go around saying: ‘Hey! You’re nice, and attractive. So I love you!’”

Purpose of life

Every one of us walks around the earth with a can of peaches and Jesus is the only one with a can opener.” And we’re just frustrated. Sir Arnold Toynbee’s a historian. He said that, “Of the 21 greatest nations, civilizations, in the history of the world, ours, the modern west, is the first and the only that does not teach its citizens why they exist because we don’t know.”

“The goal, then, should be this – to find life forward, live it backward.” You gotta know why you’re here and then organize your life toward that purpose. And there’s really only two options. The goal is us or the goal is God. And Jesus says, “If you lose your life, that’s how you find it.” That the whole point of life is God and I’ll tell you the beauty of this. As soon as you worship God, as soon as you know God, as soon as you’re connected to God, you have diminished expectations for life. Life doesn’t need to be perfect.

The reason he’s brought you here tonight is to love him. To worship him. To trust him. And to realize that he is the goal of your existence and anything else you may set up, will be frustrating. And those of you that have tried, that’s why you keep changing gods

 

Look, I know what this stuff is intended for. I created it. I gave it to you. I love you. If you use it in relationship with me, I’ll show you how it’s supposed to go and you can actually enjoy it and be happy.” But, apart from Creator, creation is meaningless.

 

The goal is this – enjoy the life that God has given you by drawing near to him and then Creator will help you enjoy creation.

And here’s the secret. If you forget everything else, remember this. What will keep you from sin? What will keep you from sin? Satisfaction will keep you from sin. That’s the great secret of a Christian life. Satisfied people don’t need to sin. Do I like to eat? I do. Can it become gluttony? Of course. Do I stop eating? No. You can only do that for so long.

ministry

“Being a leader in any ministry is all about serving people. Your job is to listen to them, accept them and love them. You are showing them the love of Christ. For some people, you will be the only person in their life who loves them and doesn’t want or expect anything from them. I’m not gonna lie, this kind of calling is not easy. You will be dissed, rejected, talked about, even hated. You will have long nights and conversations you can’t even imagine. You will learn the dark parts about people’s lives and it will require tons of patience, humility and gentleness. “

Quote

progress

“There’s a place you want to be in your walk with the Lord. You know you’re not there yet, and you probably think it will never really happen, but instead of focussing on that, what if you just imagine you’re already there now? Think about it. Pretend for a few minutes that you are exactly where you want to be with Jesus – how would He feel about you? What kinds of stuff would you talk about with Him? What would be the most important thing to you? Okay, whatever that world would be like, just go ahead and live there. Go ahead and act like you are where you want to be with Jesus and just love Him like that. He’s already there with you. It can be yours, right now, today.”

Quote

Pain and Suffering

“The problem of pain isn’t an equation you work out with your own guilt in tow. In fact, Jesus paid to remove your guilt forever. Suffering is complicated, but it’s not a penalty. Whatever happens, you are not being punished. That is the Good News.”

Quote

bad things

“When something terrible happens to you, do you automatically assume it’s because of something wrong you did? If something doesn’t go your way, is your first instinct to look back at the week you just lived and review the sins you did that you haven’t asked forgiveness for? It’s the most natural thing in the world to assume that bad things happen as a result or a punishment for your sin, but it’s not that simple. If hard times were just a result of sin, we could clean up our act and avoid difficulty and suffering, but we know that isn’t the way things work. God isn’t keeping a tally of your sin and dealing out appropriate punishments for those bad choices and attitudes as a way to get you to step in line. If you want proof, look at Jesus who never sinned, but suffered more than we can imagine. No, the punishment for sin is not a bad day, a car wreck, a disease or financial ruin. The punishment for sin is eternal separation from God and Jesus paid it on your behalf so that you can be forgiven forever. When bad things happen, there is no simple explanation and no place to easily point a finger of blame.”
