We understand from scriptures that God is committed and ever ready to offer direction to as many as are willing to be led.
However, it does not come cheaply; it requires diligence and a business-like approach. We have to consciously programme ourselves to hear His voice.
Just as we need to be tuned to a particular frequency in order to pick radio signals, we need to be correctly tuned to heaven’s frequency to hear God’s voice of direction and this requires a definite determination on our parts.
For it is written: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left (Isaiah 30:21).
Also, a climbing up is needed to hear from God. It is an uphill task but the joy it brings outweighs the price paid.
The Bible says: After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter (Revelation 4:1).
This implies that we should come away from all those things keeping us on the ground.
A separation is needed to hear from God or to receive instruction either from His Word or voice.
How, then, Can We Access the Voice of God?
1. Through Joy: We need joy to hear God’s voice of direction. If we are not joyful, our access to Him will be blocked. It takes joy to gain access into the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.
It is a great secret for triumph. Joy must be in place before we can understand the things of God, for it is with joy that we draw revelations and instructions from God.
The Bible says: Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3). Also, it is written: Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel. And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard… (Isaiah 30:29-30).
2. By Being Free From Cares, Worries and Anxiety:
To gain access to His voice, we need to be free from whatever causes us to fear or brings sorrow and anxiety.
Let us fight them as though we were fighting against sin. Why?
They will rob us of our access to the voice of God, which is our secret for sweatless triumph.
Heaviness is a spirit as validated by this scripture:
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified (Isaiah 61:3).
