It is important to know God’s voice if you want to be led by His Spirit. We spend the bulk of our time trying to learn His voice, thinking that’s all we need. God has more ways to communicate with us than we can calculate. We must establish the communication rules, it’s our responsibility! Some folks want God’s voice for only certain things so they have put filters on their conversation with the Lord. Others believe God will only make contact when He is darn good and ready. If we will look at His Word, we will find the facts and direction we need to make an informed decision
Proverbs 3:6 In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths
God is availing Himself to us for every need we have, that removes all the limits we impose on Him! We must acknowledge Him. This means to recognize Him, designate Him, consider Him, respect Him, and to regard Him. If you rightly discern the Word of God, you will come to understand that we must make the first move, not God. Too many Christians are stalled out in their faith because they are sitting around waiting on God. I’m going to say something here that is not very spiritual, but it my help you to understand.
“You must make a communications deal with God.”
Prepare a covenant that is between you and God. Then meet with Him and present it to Him. Your covenant would read something like this: Jesus I make you the Lord of my life, I’m asking you to direct all my paths. I give you permission to do whatever you need to, to keep me on track. I open my heart to hear your will in everything I do.
Don’t take God for granted. Don’t assume He will just speak to you for any reason. We must give God permission to speak into our lives. YOUR will be done. The next step is just as important. When He speaks be quick to obey what He gives you. Now you’re in His program, His system, His way of doing things. From time to time we all inadvertently try to accomplish God’s will with our own ideas. Some of our methods sound really good and they make a lot of sense, but does God agree with them? No man is obligated to obey God, every man is free to go his own way.
Matthew 7:24 Whosoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, he will be like a wise man which built his house as a rock.
We are free to build our house anywhere we choose; we can build it on sand if we want to. God speaks to us from His Word so we could hear Him every day if we wanted to. Whatever the Lord speaks to our heart we find recorded in His Holy Word because the Spirit and the Word always agree. When you read your Bible you will discover the manner and the Spirit by which God speaks to His people. He is a man of few words but one word from God can change your life forever. Once you get to know His heart one sentence will turn into a page and a page into a book. Set-up a program with your Lord. Invite Him to lead you however He chooses. He will see to it that you will understand Him.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
