Hearing from God is not at all that difficult. It really comes down to a decision. God gave you the right and the ability to hear His voice.
Matthew 13:15 The people’s hearts are waxed gross, and their ears dull of hearing, if they will hear Me and understand Me, they will be converted and I will heal their souls.
These people heard what Jesus said to some of His people because they will not believe what He would say to them. Why would God waste His time explain things to people who will not listen to Him? It is very difficult to understand God if you don’t renew your mind. He can say just a few words, but they can turn into a mini book. God’s voice is known by what He says, not how He says it.
God tends to communicate with those who have made Him Lord of their lives. I never have casual conversations with the Lord. Everything He says pertains to life. God never jokes around, but He makes me laugh quite often. We are all equipped to hear God. Just use your equipment. Even a deaf person can hear God’s voice, God is not a respecter of people. Surrender your ears to the Lord, wash out the world’s ways and let Him lead you.
