Hearing God’s Voice - Listening Prayer

Jesus says, “My sheep listen to my voice.” (John 10:27). As children of God, we are given the privilege and ability to hear the voice of God. Unfortunately, many Christians have not learnt to do that well, hence drowning out their lives with their own voice, or the voices of the world. Jesus’ promise is for all who are His disciples. When we learn to do that, we save ourselves not only from wasting time and wallowing in heartaches and brokenness that was never meant to be, but to embark on an amazing journey of living in the will of God. This listening is not only for the individual Christian, but also for the corporate Body of Believers to discern together what Christ, the Head of the Body, is saying and directing on what we should do as salt and light of the earth. (Ephesians 4:15-16; Matthew 15:13-16)
