Faith and Spiritual Hearing

How can a Christian hear God? It does not come from our physical hearing, but from our spiritual hearing from the Lord. Spiritual hearing either comes from the supernatural whether it being from reading the Word of God and being inspired by the Holy Spirit, hearing from our revelation knowledge in our spirits to our souls, or even hearing an audible voice from God. Jesus stated in John 10:27, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” Some believers have trouble hearing God, so where must one look for spiritual hearing. To hear God in the supernatural comes by one’s faith. We will go deeper on how in faith we can hear God.
Hearing in one’s spiritual formation and in the supernatural comes from one’s faith. Faith is a formula that comes by reading the Bible and having a true relationship with the Father. Paul states, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17, ESV). We hear by his voice that comes from the Bible, and this will release one’s faith to move mountains. As well, we can look the other way of how God can hear us of what we ask him. The Apostle John states, “And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him (1 John 5:15, ESV). Throughout the scriptures, we see that God is a faithful God to us and gives us second chances. He is slow to his anger, but he has an unconditional love from his heart to us. Faith and spiritual hearing is a combination that we see from the nature of God. Throughout the narratives of the Gospels, we can notice those that used the combination of spiritual hearing and faith. The woman with the issue of blood and the friends of the paralyze man are two that showed that they had heard about Jesus and had sowed it to their hearts. They believed with their faith and were focused to achieve their goals to seek Jesus for their healing. By using these spiritual tools had received what they were looking for. We can also look how several times the disciples had not focused on their spiritual hearing and had incomplete faith in Jesus. Time after time, Peter was a double minded person one second focusing on Jesus and the next of him walking away from him. This is the way a carnal Christian will act and not trust in hearing from God. In the same way though of those who walked in their faith, we can use these examples and focus on hearing him in our hearts of what he wants us to pursue.
Are you having some troubles hearing God? We must use our faith to activate the supernatural hearing of God. Jesus is wanting us to hear his voice as he guides us to the supernatural and to the kingdom of God. Jesus stated in Matthew 11:15 and many other verses through the New Testament, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” If you are having troubles to tune in to your spiritual hearing, could it be coming from your flesh. What about from this world types of entertainment. Build some time with your heavenly Father and give him time as you listen to his voice.
