There are never rules to follow
In order to hear My voice;
But here's a good way to learn how,
If you ever make that choice.
Start by praying, and reading My Word.
Be sure you've confessed all sin;
Focus on Me, and sing if you wish.
Clear your mind before you begin.
Believe in your heart that I Am there,
Wanting to talk with you;
Ask Me a question, you desire.
You may write our dialogue too.
Be still, and wait for My reply.
You'll hear a Word speak suddenly;
I love to surprise - I love to reward...
Those who diligently look for Me.
You'll feel My love in your spirit,
When you receive My voice in your mind;
Because I dwell in your heart,
Discerning My feelings, you'll find.
Believe by faith the Words you hear.
They come as a sudden thought of love;
See if it aligns with Scripture,
If there's anything you're unsure of.
Please be patient, as this takes time
To recognize My voice, and know;
As everything takes practice - so does this.
You'll hear Me easier as you grow.
