Listening in Your Spirit - Joel & Victoria
Monday, May 10, 2021
For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
(2 Corinthians 4:18, NKJV)
Just as we have physical ears, we have spiritual ears. God speaks to us in our spirit. Many times, He will speak things that contradict what we see with our eyes. You’re struggling in your finances, but you hear that voice saying, “You’re blessed. You have more than enough.” It doesn’t look like you’ll ever get well, but you hear that voice saying, “You’re healthy. You’re whole.” It’s just the opposite of what it looks like, but God calls you what you are before it happens. Abraham didn’t have any children when God called him “a father of many nations.” Gideon was afraid and felt unqualified to lead the Israelites yet God called him “a mighty hero.”
Quit being discouraged by what you see, which is temporary, and start being encouraged by what you hear—what God speaks to us is permanent. If you listen down in your spirit, you’ll hear that voice saying, “New levels are coming with new opportunities and new relationships, and favor is in your future.”
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for how You speak to my spirit directly as well as through Your Word. Help me to listen closer for Your voice in my spirit and believe what I hear and not what I see with my eyes. I believe that what I see is subject to change. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
