We believe in a God who speaks and listens; a God who is interested in conversation with us. But what about the times when he seems silent? How do we even know what his voice sounds like? And how do we break through all the static to hear him? In this series we discover the ways we can cultivate a listening life.
This past weekend in Osheta’s sermon, “Everyday Whispers of Encouragement” we take a deeper look at “the still, small voice” of God. We focus on the story of Elijah hearing God in a whisper, and how this passage can give us guidance today on how we can tune our ears in order to have ears to hear.
As we continue our Listen Up series, this week Greg discusses how being open to hearing from God through our imagination affects the quality of our faith. Faith is about getting on the inside and working out our questions once we’re in relationship. If we are expectant that our relationship with God is a two-way street and that he not only wants to hear from us, but also wants to speak with us, and we’re open to our imagination being the place that conversation happens, then we’re much more likely to be led by the Spirit in our Kingdom walk.
For many, hearing God’s voice and sensing the Spirit’s leading is a foreign concept. This sermon addresses why we should be hearing God, and some of the major obstacles that keep us from hearing what God is saying.
