Pastor's thoughts---

   Hearing God's Voice
                             One of the most common things that you heard today is the phrase--I need a word, Many Christians, when they go through trials and tests, would say that they are not hearing from God. Even in the church, I am amazed when they have a visiting prophet, they go to services with the expectancy of getting a personal word. I, once, saw in a service how there was a line of people just waiting to get a word from the prophet.
                          Please do not get me wrong. We should honor the prophets and other ministry gifts that God sends to the church but our lives should not revolve, entirely, on that. The word of God is a sure prophecy (II Peter 1:19) Think about this---GOD IS SPEAKING TO US 24 hours a day through his word. His word is his will. Many are looking for a sign. Yes, there are times when God might use a sign to speak to us but we should learn to hear his voice in our inner being. Remember, friends, we walk by faith and not by sight. 
                      How do we develop ourselves to hear God's voice? By having fellowship with him. Take some time and practice hearing his voice. If you draw near to him, he will draw near to you. (James 4:8) We tend to view prayers as a time to pour out our hearts and that is part of the process, but there is more to it. One missing part of the puzzle is to be quiet and practice hearing his voice. As we do that, we will learn to hear his voice and see his hand guide our lives. God bless.
