How to Hear God Speak to You


ANNOUNCER: COMING UP ON
“MARRIAGE TODAY WITH JIMMY & KAREN”…
JIMMY: BUT DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ASK GOD TO LEAD YOU
AND GUIDE YOU, HE WILL? WHEN YOU ASK HIM TO SPEAK TO
YOU, HE WILL? AND DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERY
SINGLE THING THAT HE SAYS WILL WORK AND SUCCEED IN YOUR LIFE?
EVERYTHING HE SAYS TO YOU WILL BEAR FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE.
SEE, GOD HAS AN ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S
GOING TO HAPPEN TOMORROW, HE KNOWS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
FOR ETERNITY. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
REASONS THAT JESUS LIVES WITHIN OUR HEART IS THAT HE GUIDES US
AS OUR SHEPHERD, HE GUIDES US IN LIFE.
DID YOU KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF GOD’S VOICE IN YOUR LIFE YOU CAN
MAKE EVERY DECISION RIGHT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?
EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY HAVE MADE SOME BIG MISTAKES EARLIER IN
YOUR LIFE, DEAD WORKS, THINGS THAT YOU DID WITHOUT CONSULTING
GOD. THEY SEEMED RIGHT, THEY FELT RIGHT, BUT THEY WEREN’T
RIGHT, AND THE FRUIT OF THOSE THINGS WAS BAD.
THAT’S THE WAY I WAS BEFORE I CAME TO THE LORD.
BUT DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ASK GOD TO LEAD YOU AND GUIDE YOU,
HE WILL? WHEN YOU ASK HIM TO SPEAK TO
YOU, HE WILL? AND DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERY
SINGLE THING THAT HE SAYS WILL WORK AND SUCCEED IN YOUR LIFE?
EVERYTHING HE SAYS TO YOU WILL BEAR FRUIT IN YOUR LIFE.
SEE, GOD HAS AN ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S
GOING TO HAPPEN TOMORROW, HE KNOWS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
FOR ETERNITY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IN
ANOTHER PERSON’S HEART, HE KNOWS WHAT’S IN EVERY PERSON’S HEART.
HE KNOWS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE ECONOMY. HE–HE KNOWS
EVERYTHING. AND SO WHEN I’M ASKING HIM TO GUIDE ME, HE HAS
THE MASTER PLAN, AND HE KNOWS EVERY MOVE TO MAKE IN MY LIFE.
WHEN I’M GUIDING ME, I’M JUST– I’M JUST USING EMOTION OR
REASON OR FEAR OR WHATEVER IT IS THAT I WOULD USE TO GUIDE–
TO GUIDE MY LIFE. AND SO, IF JESUS IS TRULY THE
LORD OF MY LIFE, I’M GOING TO STOP AND LISTEN TO HIM BEFORE I
MAKE A DECISION, THEN I’LL MAKE THAT DECISION. SO HEARING GOD
IS PROOF THAT JESUS IS ALIVE, THAT WE HAVE A RELATIONSHIP
WITH HIM, AND THAT HE’S LORD OF OUR LIVES. LET ME TALK
ABOUT HOW GOD SPEAKS. SO YOU SAY, WELL, “I WANT TO HAVE,
JIMMY, A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, AND I WANT TO HEAR GOD.”
WELL, GOOD. WELL, LET ME–LET ME TELL YOU HOW JESUS SPEAKS,
BECAUSE HE SPEAKS TO US IN DIFFERENT WAYS. THE FIRST WAY
THAT GOD SPEAKS TO US IS THROUGH THE BIBLE, OBVIOUSLY.
IS, EVERY TIME YOU’RE READING THE BIBLE, YOU’RE–YOU’RE
READING THE WORD OF GOD, AND GOD IS SAYING SOMETHING TO YOU ON
SOME LEVEL. NOW, WHEN THE BIBLE USES THE WORD “WORD,”
IN OTHER WORDS, THE WORD OF GOD, THERE ARE TWO WORDS
FOR THE WORD “WORD,” AND ONE OF THEM IS “LOGOS,”
THAT MEANS THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD. IT JUST MEANS THE BIBLE.
YOU PICK IT UP AND YOU’RE READING WHAT IS UNIVERSALLY TRUE
FOR EVERY PERSON, OK? THE OTHER WORD IS “RHEMA,”
ROMANS 10:17 SAYS, “FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING BY THE
WORD OF GOD,” THAT WORD THAT IS RHEMA AND IT MEANS THE LIVING
VOICE OF GOD. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS
THAT WE DO IN READING THE BIBLE IS EVERY TIME YOU’RE READING THE
BIBLE, YOU’RE GIVING GOD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO YOU,
AND HE IS. BUT MANY TIMES WHEN YOU READ THE
BIBLE, YOU’LL BE READING ALONG AND A VERSE WILL JUST JUMP OUT
AT YOU, A VERSE WILL JUST KIND OF EXPLODE OFF THE PAGE AND THE
HOLY SPIRIT WILL BEGIN TO SAY SOMETHING POWERFUL IN YOUR LIFE
THROUGH THAT VERSE OR THAT PASSAGE. THAT’S CALLED RHEMA.
THAT’S CALLED THE LIVING VOICE OF GOD.
THE LOGOS IS JUST, I’M READING THE BIBLE, AND THAT’S THE LOGOS.
BUT THE RHEMA IS SOMETHING EXPLODED OFF THE PAGE AND GAVE
ME FAITH. FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING BY THE RHEMA OF GOD.
THIS RHEMA WORD THAT COMES INTO MY HEART, THIS RHEMA WORD THAT
JUMPS OFF THE PAGES OF THE BIBLE, AND GOD USES THAT TO
DIRECT ME IN MY LIFE. THE SECOND WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS
TO US IS HIS STILL, SMALL VOICE INSIDE OF OUR HEARTS.
THIS IS FIRST KINGS 19, THIS IS SPEAKING ABOUT ELIJAH AND HIS
ENCOUNTER WITH GOD. “THEN HE SAID GO OUT AND STAND
ON THE MOUNTAIN BEFORE THE LORD. AND BEHOLD, THE LORD PASSED BY,
AND A GREAT AND STRONG WIND TORE INTO THE MOUNTAINS
AND BROKE THE ROCKS IN PIECES BEFORE THE LORD, BUT
THE LORD WAS NOT IN THE WIND. AND AFTER THE WIND, AN
EARTHQUAKE, BUT THE LORD WAS NOT IN THE EARTHQUAKE, AND AFTER THE
EARTHQUAKE, A FIRE, BUT THE LORD WAS NOT IN THE FIRE, AND
AFTER THE FIRE, A STILL, SMALL VOICE.” AND THAT’S HOW GOD SPOKE
TO ELIJAH. A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, WELL, YOU
KNOW, HOW DOES GOD SPEAK? HE SPEAKS IN A STILL, SMALL VOICE
INSIDE OF OUR HEART. WHEN GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU,
IT’S NOT HERE NOW, IT’S–HE’S IN HERE. AND YOU HAVE SPIRITUAL
EARS. WHEN YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, YOU HAVE SPIRITUAL EYES AND YOU
HAVE SPIRITUAL EARS, AND HE’S LIVING INSIDE THERE. AND YOU
SAY, WELL, WHY DOESN’T HE SPEAK LOUDER THAN HE SPEAKS? WELL, FOR
SEVERAL REASONS, ONE IS BECAUSE HE DOESN’T WANT TO INTIMIDATE
US. GOD DOESN’T BARK. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED
TO KNOW ABOUT THE VOICE OF GOD IS IT’S THE MOST LOVING VOICE
YOU’LL EVER–YOU’LL EVER HEAR. GOD’S VOICE IS ALWAYS LOVING.
EVEN WHEN GOD IS WARNING US, HIS IS THE SWEETEST, MOST
TENDER VOICE YOU’LL EVER HEAR IN YOUR LIFE, AND THAT’S HOW YOU
KNOW YOU’RE HEARING FROM GOD. IF YOU’RE HEARING FROM THE
DEVIL, HE’LL BRING FEAR AND CONDEMNATION AND ALL OF THOSE
KINDS OF THINGS, BUT GOD DOESN’T USE FEAR, GOD DOESN’T USE
CONDEMNATION. BECAUSE WE’RE FORGIVEN AND WE’RE
FRIENDS WITH GOD BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
BUT THE OTHER REASON THAT GOD DOESN’T TALK LOUDLY IS BECAUSE
HE’S INSIDE OF OUR VOICE. WHEN YOU’RE CLOSE TO SOMEONE,
VOLUME IS A LIABILITY. MY LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER KATE
CRAWLED UP ON MY LAP ONE DAY AND SHE SAID, “PAPPY, I WANT
TO–I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING TO YOU AND I WANT TO
TELL YOU A SECRET,” AND I SAID “OK,” AND SO SHE GOT UP RIGHT
IN MY EAR. SHE PUT HER LIPS LIKE RIGHT ON MY EAR AND SHE STARTED
TALKING. WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I WAS LAUGHING BECAUSE IT WAS
TICKLING MY EAR. I DIDN’T HEAR A WORD SHE SAID BECAUSE SHE WAS
RIGHT THERE TALKING, AND WHEN YOU’RE RIGHT THERE, YOU HAVE TO
BE SO QUIET IN WHAT YOU SAY FOR A PERSON TO BE ABLE TO HEAR YOU.
WELL, JESUS ISN’T RIGHT HERE, HE’S IN HERE.
HE SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE. WHEN YOU’RE QUIET AND YOU’RE ASKING
GOD TO SPEAK TO YOU, HE’LL SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE.
IN AN UNMISTAKABLE WAY YOU’LL HEAR INSIDE OF YOUR HEART WHEN
YOU LISTEN THIS VOICE SPEAKING TO YOU. AND YOU WOULD SAY,
“WELL, JIMMY, HOW DO I KNOW IT’S NOT THE DEVIL?
HOW DO I KNOW IT’S NOT ME JUST TELLING ME WHAT I WANT TO
HEAR.” WELL, LET ME TELL YOU HOW YOU KNOW. EVERYTHING THAT GOD
SAYS ALWAYS AGREES WITH SCRIPTURE. IT ALWAYS DOES.
GOD WILL NEVER TELL YOU TO DO SOMETHING THAT IS SINFUL.
SO ALWAYS WHEN YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU’RE HEARING SOMETHING FROM
GOD, ALWAYS MEASURE IT AGAINST SCRIPTURE. IT’S ALWAYS
CONSISTENT WITH THE CHARACTER OF GOD. GOD IS A LOVING,
GENEROUS, GOOD GOD. GOD IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU TO
BE IMMORAL, GOD IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU TO HATE SOMEBODY
OR HURT SOMEBODY. GOD IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU TO
ROB A BANK AND DO THINGS LIKE THAT. HE’S NOT GOING TO TELL YOU
THOSE THINGS. SO, GOD’S VOICE IS ALWAYS CONSISTENT, AND IT’S
CONSISTENT WITH HIS CHARACTER, BUT ALSO IT WORKS.
WHEN YOU’RE CULTIVATING A LISTENING EAR TO THE LORD AND
YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU, AGAIN, ALWAYS
SCRIPTURAL, ALWAYS LOVING, NEVER CONDEMNING, NEVER USES FEAR OR
ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT THE MOST WONDERFUL THING ABOUT IT IS
IT WORKS. AND YOU BELIEVE THE LORD IS
TELLING YOU TO DO THIS, OR GO HERE, OR TAKE THIS JOB OR, YOU
KNOW, WHATEVER IT IS THAT HE IS SAYING TO YOU,
AS YOU STEP OUT AND DO THAT THING, YOU’LL SEE THAT IT
WORKS. NOW, IF IT DIDN’T WORK, YOU HAVE TO GO BACK
AND QUESTION, DID I NOT HEAR GOD? YOU KNOW,
WAS–WAS THERE SOME FLAW IN THE PROCESS OF ME HEARING GOD?
BUT MORE TIMES THAN NOT, WHEN YOU’RE HEARING THAT VOICE AND
YOU STEP OUT, YOU’LL FIND OUT IT WAS GOD AND IT WILL WORK
IN YOUR LIFE. ANOTHER WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS TO
US IS PEACE. NOW, BY THE WAY, IN HEARING GOD, GOD CAN ALSO USE
DREAMS AND VISIONS. ACTS CHAPTER 2 SAYS, “WHEN THE
HOLY SPIRIT COMES, YOUNG MEN WILL SEE VISIONS AND OLD MEN
WILL DREAM DREAMS.” EVEN UPON MY MAIDSERVANTS, GOD
SAYS HE WILL DO THIS. AND A VISION IS JUST, I’M
SEEING SOMETHING IN MY HEART. GOD IS GIVING ME THE ABILITY IN
MY HEART TO SEE SOMETHING BEYOND THE NATURAL REALM.
WELL, GOD USES THOSE THINGS IN OUR LIVES, AND WE NEED TO–
WE NEED TO ASK GOD TO USE THOSE THINGS, HOWEVER
HE WANTS TO COMMUNICATE, THAT HE DOES–LET ME TELL YOU WHY GOD
USES DREAMS. BECAUSE GOD CAN BYPASS YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND.
SOMETIMES YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND WILL KEEP YOU FROM HEARING
SOMETHING FROM GOD. I FIND OUT THAT SOMETIMES WHEN
I’M JUST ON THE VERGE OF WAKING UP THAT GOD WILL SPEAK SOMETHING
TO ME BECAUSE HE CAN BYPASS MY NATURAL MIND, BECAUSE MY NATURAL
MIND SOMETIMES BLOCKS WHAT GOD IS TRYING TO SAY.
NUMBER 3 WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS TO US IS PEACE.
COLOSSIANS 3:15 SAYS, “LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE IN YOUR HEARTS
TO WHICH YOU ARE CALLED IN ONE BODY AND BE THANKFUL.”
LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOUR HEART.
THAT WORD RULE IS THE WORD BRABEULO, AND IT MEANS TO
UMPIRE. THE PEACE OF GOD, LIKE BALLS AND STRIKES OR SAFE OR
OUT, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT– THE PEACE OF GOD UMPIRING THE
DECISION OF OUR LIVES. REMEMBER WHEN JESUS SAW HIS DISCIPLES
AFTER HE WAS RESURRECTED, THE FIRST THING HE SAID WAS
“PEACE TO YOU.” JOHN 14, JESUS SAID, “THE HELPER, THE
HOLY SPIRIT, WHOM THE FATHER WILL SEND IN MY NAME, HE WILL
TEACH YOU ALL THINGS AND BRING TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE ALL
THAT I SAID TO YOU. PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU.
MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES DO I
GIVE TO YOU. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED,
NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.” THIS IS A PROFOUND THING. PEACE IS A
PROFOUND THING. AND YOU CAN FEEL IT.
THE PEACE OF GOD IS NOT SOMETHING THAT’S INTANGIBLE OR
JUST SUPERNATURAL AND SPIRITUAL, IT IS A TANGIBLE THING THAT YOU
CAN FEEL GOD’S PEACE. AND THE BIBLE SAYS, “LET THE PEACE OF
GOD RULE IN YOUR LIVES.” AND JESUS SAID, “I’M GOING TO
SEND THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH YOU EVERYTHING.” PEACE, HE’S
GOING TO BRING WITH HIM WHEN HE COMES. AND MANY TIMES WHEN
YOU’RE MAKING A DECISION AND YOU’RE ASKING THE LORD TO GUIDE
YOU–SEE, IF THE BIBLE SAYS DON’T DO SOMETHING, DON’T DO IT.
IF THE BIBLE SAYS DO SOMETHING, DO IT. I MEAN, IT’S VERY CLEAR.
BUT THERE ARE MANY THINGS THE BIBLE JUST DOESN’T SAY ANYTHING
ABOUT. THE BIBLE DOESN’T TELL US WHICH
CAR TO BUY. THE BIBLE DOESN’T TELL US WHICH HOUSE TO BUY.
IT TELLS US PRINCIPLES OF HOW TO HANDLE OUR FINANCES.
THE BIBLE DOESN’T TELL US– IT DOESN’T TELL US WHICH MAJOR
TO TAKE IN SCHOOL, OR WHICH JOB TO TAKE, OR WHO TO MARRY. IT
TELLS US TO MARRY A CHRISTIAN, BUT IT DOESN’T SAY MARRY BOB OR
MARRY TERESA, YOU KNOW, IT JUST GIVES YOU PRINCIPLES. BUT WHO DO
YOU MARRY? WHAT JOB DO YOU TAKE? WHAT–WHAT MAJOR DO YOU
CHOOSE? AND I’M SAYING AS YOU’RE–AS YOU’RE CONSULTING
GOD, AS YOU’RE ASKING GOD TO GUIDE YOU IN LIFE, HIS PEACE IS
PROFOUND. HUNDREDS OF TIMES AS KAREN AND I HAVE MADE DECISIONS,
SOMETIMES EVERYTHING LOOKS RIGHT BUT YOU JUST DON’T HAVE PEACE
ABOUT IT. IN THE NATURAL, YOU’RE LOOKING
AT IT, EVERYTHING LOOKS RIGHT, BUT SOMETHING INSIDE OF YOU
IS TELLING YOU, “DON’T DO IT.” AND YOU HEAR SOMEONE SAY “I JUST
DIDN’T HAVE PEACE ABOUT IT,” THAT’S A VERY IMPORTANT
STATEMENT. BECAUSE GOD’S TELLING–THE LACK
OF PEACE IS GOD SPEAKING TO YOU. BUT SOMETIMES THINGS CANNOT LOOK
SO RIGHT. SOMETIMES THINGS CAN KIND OF
LOOK–ON THE OUTSIDE, THEY’RE JUST, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE BLURRY
AND YOU DON’T SEE THINGS CLEARLY, BUT YOU HAVE A PROFOUND
SENSE OF PEACE. I’VE MADE HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS AND
HUNDREDS OF DECISIONS IN MY LIFE BASED ON PEACE, AND I’VE NEVER
MADE A WRONG DECISION BASED ON PEACE. THE ONLY TIMES THAT I
HAVE MADE WRONG DECISIONS IS WHEN I DID SOMETHING AND I
IGNORED THE LACK OF PEACE THAT I HAD. KAREN IS REALLY GOOD AT
THIS. AND WE WERE MAKING A DECISION LAST YEAR, AND IT WAS
SOMETHING THAT MADE SENSE TO ME, AND I SAID TO KAREN, I’M GOOD
WITH THAT. YOU KNOW, WE WERE DOING THIS AND THIS, AND KAREN
SAID, “I DON’T FEEL PEACE ABOUT THAT, JIMMY. I JUST DON’T FEEL
PEACE,” AND I SAID, “WELL…” BECAUSE WE DON’T BULLY EACH
OTHER, WE ALWAYS MAKE ALL OF OUR DECISIONS TOGETHER, AND,
UH, KAREN JUST SAID, “I JUST DON’T FEEL PEACE ABOUT IT.”
AND I SAID “OK,” SO WE DIDN’T MAKE THAT DECISION. THANK GOD,
BECAUSE IT WAS A WRONG DECISION. AND SO LISTEN TO THE PEACE LEVEL
IN YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE THAT’S GOD SPEAKING TO YOU. ANOTHER WAY
THAT GOD SPEAKS–I’LL HURRY UP HERE–IS CIRCUMSTANCES, OPEN AND
CLOSED DOORS. THIS IS REVELATION 3. “TO THE ANGEL OF
THE CHURCH IN PHILADELPHIA WRITE THESE THINGS SAYS HE WHO IS
HOLY, HE WHO IS TRUE, HE HAS THE KEY OF DAVID,
HE WHO OPENS AND NO ONE SHUTS AND SHUTS AND NO ONE OPENS.”
AND HERE’S MY PRAYER THAT I PRAY ON A REGULAR BASIS, “GOD, CLOSE
DOORS FOR ME THAT NO MAN CAN OPEN, AND OPEN DOORS FOR ME
THAT NO MAN CAN CLOSE UNTIL I’M STANDING IN YOUR PERFECT WILL.”
AND HE’LL ANSWER THAT PRAYER. [APPLAUSE]
BE SENSITIVE TO CIRCUMSTANCES, BE SENSITIVE TO OPEN AND CLOSED
DOORS, AND WHEN A DOOR OPENS TO YOU, ASK GOD, “DO YOU WANT
ME TO GO THROUGH THAT DOOR?” AND AGAIN, HE WILL GIVE YOU
PEACE ABOUT IT AND HE’LL GUIDE YOU. BUT SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW,
WHEN GOD CLOSES A DOOR IN OUR LIVES AND WE GET
FRUSTRATED BECAUSE WE DIDN’T HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY OR WE
DIDN’T GET TO DO THIS AND THAT, SOMETIMES IT’S THE BEST–IT’S
GOD LOVING US NOT ALLOWING US TO DO SOME OF THOSE THINGS.
NUMBER–THE FINAL WAY, AND THIS IS–THIS IS PROBABLY NOT
EXHAUSTIVE–BUT ANOTHER WAY THAT GOD SPEAKS TO US IS PEOPLE.
MANY TIMES GOD WON’T SAY ANYTHING SPECIFICALLY TO ME. HE
WOULD SAY IT MAYBE THROUGH KAREN OR MAYBE A FRIEND. UH, PROVERBS
SAYS, “WHERE THERE IS NO COUNSEL, THE PEOPLE FALL,
BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS THERE IS SAFETY.”
SOMETIMES, WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT DECISION TO MAKE,
OR MAYBE YOU THINK YOU KNOW, BUT YOU NEED CONFIRMATION,
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN DO IS FIND A BELIEVER WHO IS
SUCCESSFUL. NEEDS TO BE A BELIEVER AND THEY
NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE AREA THAT YOU’RE NEEDING HELP.
AND YOU GO TO THEM AND YOU ASK THEM TO CONSULT WITH YOU, AND
AGAIN IT HAS TO BE BIBLICAL WHATEVER THEY SAY.
BUT SOMETIMES GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH OTHER PEOPLE, BUT THAT’S
GENERALLY HOW GOD SPEAKS TO US, BUT GOD SPEAKS.
AND THERE’S AN INTERACTIVE RELATIONSHIP THAT WE HAVE WITH
GOD, WITH HIM GUIDING US AS OUR SHEPHERD. AND LET ME CLOSE BY
SAYING HERE’S WHAT HINDERS GOD FROM SPEAKING TO US.
NUMBER ONE IS UNBELIEF. IF YOU DON’T HAVE–IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE
THAT GOD SPEAKS, YOU’RE RIGHT, HE DOESN’T. HE DOESN’T SPEAK TO
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE HE DOESN’T SPEAK. AND HEBREWS 11:6,
“WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE WHO COMES
TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF
THOSE WHO SEEK HIM.” HE IS, GOD IS IN MY LIFE. YOU KNOW, LET ME
TELL YOU THE FAITH THAT YOU NEED TO HAVE TO HEAR GOD.
NOW, I WANT YOU TO LISTEN WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SAY NOW BECAUSE
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. YOU NEED TO HAVE FAITH THAT HE
LOVES YOU. SEE, SOMETIMES, THE DEVIL COMES
TO US EVEN AS I’M SPEAKING IN THIS MESSAGE AND THE DEVIL WILL
SAY, “YEAH, GOD SPEAKS, BUT HE’S NOT GOING TO SPEAK TO YOU
BECAUSE YOU’RE A LOUSE.” WELL, THAT’S THE WAY THE DEVIL SPEAKS,
DEMEANING, CONDEMNING, YOU KNOW, GOD DOESN’T LOVE YOU
ENOUGH, THINGS LIKE THAT. LET ME JUST TELL YOU SOMETHING.
I HAVE FAITH THAT THE BLOOD OF JESUS PAID FOR MY SINS, AND I
HAVE FAITH THAT THE ANGER OF GOD WAS TAKEN AWAY ON GOOD FRIDAY
AND NOW GOD IS MY DADDY, AND HE’S MY FRIEND. I HAVE FAITH.
BUT I’VE HEARD THAT CONDEMNING VOICE IN MY LIFE FROM THE DEVIL
THAT TRIED TO COME AND SHOOT– SEE, THE DEVIL’S WORST
NIGHTMARE IS YOU BEING FRIENDS WITH GOD.
BECAUSE EVERY–EVERYTHING HE HAS DESIGNED FOR YOUR LIFE CAN’T
HAPPEN IF YOU’RE WALKING WITH THE LORD.
SO AS YOU BEGIN TO COMMUNE WITH THE LORD, YOU NEED TO HAVE FAITH
THAT GOD IS LIVING IN YOUR LIFE AND IN YOUR HEART AND THAT HE
LOVES YOU. THE SECOND THING THAT HINDERS HEARING GOD
IS DISOBEDIENCE. GOD ALWAYS LOVES US. HE–
WE DON’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO HEAR GOD. THIS ISN’T A POINT
SYSTEM. BUT WHEN THE LORD SPEAKS, IF YOU DON’T OBEY IT,
HE’LL STOP SPEAKING–UNTIL YOU MAKE IT RIGHT. I WAS TALKING
TO A MAN OUT HERE IN THE FOYER ONE DAY AFTER CHURCH,
AND I HAD BEEN SPEAKING ON HEARING GOD AND HE SAID, “PASTOR
JIMMY, I HAVEN’T HEARD GOD IN TWO YEARS.” AND I SAID, “YOU
HEARD HIM TWO YEARS AGO?” AND HE SAID “YEAH.” I SAID, “WELL,
WHAT DID HE SAY?” HE TOLD ME WHAT I SAID. IT WAS VERY
SPECIFIC, I SAID “WELL, DID YOU DO IT?” HE SAID, “NO.” AND I
SAID, “WELL, YOU NEED TO MAKE THAT RIGHT WITH THE LORD AND
HE’LL KEEP SPEAKING TO YOU.” BUT–BUT WHEN THE LORD–WHAT–
WHAT THE LORD SAID TO THAT MAN WAS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR HIM
TO HAVE OBEYED. IT WAS GOD. I MEAN, WHEN HE TOLD ME, IT WAS
OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING GOD WANTED HIM TO DO. WELL, IF THE LORD
SPEAKS TO US AND WE JUST KIND OF THROW IT OVER OUR SHOULDER AND
WE SAY, “I DON’T LIKE THAT WORD, COULD YOU GIVE ME ANOTHER WORD?”
YOU KNOW. THE LORD’S RESPONSE TO THAT IS,
“I’M NOT YOUR FRIEND JOE.” YOU KNOW, “I’M NOT JUST ANOTHER
PERSON TALKING TO YOU, I’M GOD. AND IF YOU VALUE MY VOICE,
I’LL KEEP SPEAKING. BUT IF I SAY THINGS TO YOU AND
YOU JUST KIND OF THROW THEM OVER YOUR SHOULDER, IT’S NOT GOING TO
WORK OUT.” SO AGAIN, HE ALWAYS LOVES US AND HE’S EASY TO GET
ALONG WITH, AND IF WE’VE DONE SOMETHING WRONG, ALL WE HAVE TO
DO IS TALK TO HIM ABOUT IT AND HE’LL–HE’LL FORGIVE US.
BUT YOU CAN’T JUST THROW GOD’S WORD OVER YOUR SHOULDER AND
EXPECT HIM TO KEEP SPEAKING TO YOU. NUMBER 3–
AND THIS IS–THIS IS THE END. BUSYNESS AND DISTRACTION. IS–
IT’S THE OLD SAYING, “IF THE DEVIL CAN’T GET IN FRONT OF
YOU AND STOP YOU, HE’LL GET BEHIND YOU AND PUSH YOU TOO
FAST. AND JUST NOT EVER SLOWING DOWN–GOD ISN’T OBLIGATED TO
CHASE US DOWN AND TALK TO US, WE’RE OBLIGATED TO SLOW DOWN AND
LISTEN TO HIM. AND THIS IS WHAT WE CALL A QUIET TIME. WHEN I
TALK ABOUT YOUR PRAYER TIME EVERY DAY, I CALL IT A QUIET
TIME BECAUSE IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO GET A QUIET TIME EVERY DAY
ALONE WITH GOD. YOU KNOW, IF YOU’RE JUST–5 MINUTES, 10
MINUTES IS SO IMPORTANT. HOPEFULLY IT COULD BE LONGER
THAN THAT. AND YOU SAY, “WELL, JIMMY, MY HOUSE, YOU CAN’T
IMAGINE ALL THE ACTIVITY AROUND MY HOUSE.” GET IN YOUR CAR
BEFORE WORK AND SHOW UP TO WORK EARLY, AND JUST SIT OUT IN THE
PARKING LOT BY YOURSELF FOR 5 OR 10 MINUTES. OR SCHOOL.
OR–OR WHEREVER YOU CAN GO– AT THE PARK–JUST TO GET TIME
ALONE WITH GOD. AND IN THAT ALONE TIME WHEN
YOU’RE QUIET, TURN THE RADIO OFF, TURN THE TV OFF, GET QUIET.
AND ASK GOD QUESTIONS. YOU KNOW, READ–READ YOUR BIBLE,
READ A PROVERB, READ A PSALM EVERY DAY, IT’S SO
ENCOURAGING. YOU KNOW, READ–READ THE WORD, AND
TELL–TELL GOD WHAT YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT. TELL GOD WHAT
YOU’RE NEEDING. HE’S YOUR DADDY. HE LOVES BEING YOUR DADDY. AND
THEN SAY, “LORD, I NEED YOU TO SPEAK TO ME ABOUT THIS.”
AND THEN JUST GET QUIET. YOU’LL BE–LET ME TELL YOU,
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE LORD, HE’S A TALKER.
HE’S A TALKER. HE TALKS A LOT.
AND WHEN THE LORD TALKS, IT’S SO COMFORTING.
IT’S JUST…THROUGH MANY YEARS OF HEARING GOD, HE IS THE MOST
GRACIOUS, WONDERFUL, SWEET, CONSISTENT…
PERSON I’VE EVER KNOWN. AND HE LIVES INSIDE OF HERE.
HE DOESN’T COME AND GO. HE’S HERE TO STAY.
AND WE ALWAYS HAVE GOD TO DIRECT US IN OUR LIVES.
IT’S–IT’S–IT’S MORE THAN IMPORTANT. IT’S JUST–IT’S
FANTASTIC. YOU CAN MAKE EVERY DECISION RIGHT. YOU CAN KNOW
THAT GOD IS LEADING YOU IN LIFE. AND EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO
CAN SUCCEED. I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS
MESSAGE TODAY. YOU KNOW, JESUS– JESUS CAME TO SET US FREE, TO
GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE, BUT TO TEACH US HOW TO LIVE.
AND ONE OF THE REASONS THAT I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH ON “THE
GOOD LIFE” IS–IS TALKING ABOUT THE BASICS OF THE CHRISTIAN
LIFE, JUST THE BASICS OF, YOU KNOW, HOW TO LIVE IN VICTORY.
AND, YOU KNOW, 40 YEARS AGO WHEN I RECEIVED CHRIST, I DIDN’T KNOW
ANYTHING, AND IT WAS DIFFICULT, AND I STRUGGLED.
BUT AS SOON AS I BEGAN TO LEARN THESE PRINCIPLES THAT I’M

DOES TO THIS DAY. SO THAT’S WHY WE’RE SO EXCITED

Jimmy: AND WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, YOU SAY,
“I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO PRAY ABOUT.” WHAT ARE YOU WORRIED
ABOUT, RIGHT? YOUR PRAYER LIST IS YOUR WORRY LIST.
ANNOUNCER: GOD HAS A FULFILLING PLAN FOR YOU. EXPERIENCE
“THE GOOD LIFE” TODAY. WHEN YOU’RE IN A RELATIONSHIP
WITH SOMEONE, YOU TALK, AND IT’S NOT A MONOLOGUE, IT’S A
DIALOGUE. YOU KNOW, IT’S JUST SO
UNFORTUNATE IN MY HEART AND MIND THAT SO MANY PEOPLE, EVEN
CHRISTIAN PEOPLE, EVEN LEADERS AND SOMETIMES EVEN PASTORS TEACH
THAT YOU CAN’T HEAR GOD. WELL, I GOT SAVED 40 YEARS
AGO, AND IN THE MORNING I GOT SAVED I DIDN’T KNOW
ANY THEOLOGY. I–I HAD NO IDEA, YOU KNOW,
WHERE THE BOOK OF GENESIS WAS. BUT I REMEMBER WHEN I GOT SAVED,
WITHIN A FEW MINUTES OF RECEIVING CHRIST AS LORD OF
MY LIFE, THE LORD SPOKE TO MY HEART AND SAID, “DON’T SEE YOUR
FRIENDS AGAIN.” I HAD A LOT OF UNGODLY FRIENDS. I WOULD HAVE
NEVER BEEN ABLE TO LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IF I WOULD’VE
KEPT THOSE FRIENDS. THEY WOULD’VE DRUG ME BACK INTO
THE OLD LIFESTYLE THAT I WAS IN. BUT I REMEMBER–I DIDN’T HEAR IT
WITH THIS EAR, I HEARD IT IN MY HEART AND I KNEW IMMEDIATELY
THAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO GIVE UP THOSE FRIENDS, AND I DID.
TWO WEEKS LATER, I WAS–KAREN AND I–I GOT SAVED THE WEEK
BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED, SO THIS WAS A WEEK AFTER WE
GOT MARRIED. I WAS IN THE BACKYARD OF OUR HOME AND WE HAD
A LITTLE BITTY APARTMENT, AND I WAS IN THE BACKYARD AND, YOU
KNOW, I WAS A NEW CHRISTIAN, AND I DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
ANYTHING, AND I HAD NEVER THOUGHT OF MYSELF AS A PREACHER
BEFORE. BUT AT 19 YEARS OLD I WAS SITTING IN THE BACKYARD OF
MY HOUSE AND I SAW–I JUST SAW LIKE A SHEET DROP DOWN IN
FRONT OF MY EYES. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT. BUT I SAW
MYSELF PREACHING TO A MULTITUDE OF PEOPLE AND GOD CALLED ME THEN
INTO THE MINISTRY AND BEGAN TO SPEAK TO ME ABOUT MY FUTURE, AND
THE LORD TOLD ME HOW I WOULD GO INTO THE MINISTRY.
I MEAN, AGAIN HE JUST SPOKE TO MY HEART.
I WAS JUST LEARNING EVERYTHING ABOUT GOD, BUT YOU KNOW
WHEN I LOOK BACK–THOSE THINGS WERE GOD. I MEAN, I HEARD
GOD. GOD TOLD ME NOT TO SEE MY FRIENDS AGAIN, AND NOW 40 YEARS
LATER, I SAY THANK GOD HE TOLD ME THAT.
GOD CALLED ME INTO THE MINISTRY AND NOW I SIT HERE ALL THESE
YEARS LATER SAYING, “THANK GOD I’M DOING WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO
DO WITH MY LIFE.” BUT YOU KNOW SOMETHING–WHAT IF
YOU NEVER HEARD GOD? HOW WOULD YOU KNOW THOSE THINGS?
NOW, THE BIBLE HAS A LOT TO SAY, OBVIOUSLY, AND EVERYTHING IN THE
BIBLE IS GOD’S VOICE TO US. I AGREE WITH THAT COMPLETELY.
BUT SITUATIONALLY, THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT JUST AREN’T IN
THE BIBLE THAT GOD WANTS TO SPEAK TO US. FIRST OF ALL, JUST
LOVE. YOU KNOW, WHEN I HEAR GOD EVERY DAY, MANY TIMES WHEN I’M
HEARING GOD HE’S JUST TELLING ME HOW MUCH HE LOVES ME, OR HE’S
GIVING ME SOME SPECIFIC GUIDANCE. YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE
HAS A LOT TO SAY, BUT WHICH HOUSE DO YOU BUY?
WHICH CAR DO YOU BUY? YOU KNOW, WHERE DO YOU PUT
YOUR KIDS IN SCHOOL? YOU KNOW, WHO DO YOU MARRY?
ALL THOSE THINGS LIKE THAT, THEY’RE SITUATIONAL.
THERE ARE BASICS IN THE BIBLE THAT ARE ALWAYS TRUE.
BUT GOD IS A GOD WHO WALKS WITH US RELATIONALLY, SPECIFICALLY,
FOR YOU. GOD HAS SOMETHING TO SAY TO YOU
HE’S NOT SAYING TO ANYBODY ELSE. AND LET ME SAY SOMETHING ELSE.
IF YOU’RE BORN AGAIN, YOU HAVE SPIRITUAL EARS, YOU HAVE
SPIRITUAL EYES, YOU HAVE– YOU HAVE A SPIRIT PERSON ON THE
INSIDE OF YOU THAT IS CAPABLE OF HEARING FROM GOD. AND MY
CHALLENGE TO YOU IS THIS. GET ALONE, TALK TO GOD, ASK GOD
SPECIFICALLY SOMETHING THAT YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE AND JUST WAIT.
AND LISTEN, LISTEN TO HIM IN YOUR HEART. AND WHEN HE SPEAKS,
IT’S ALWAYS GOING TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE BIBLE WHEN
HE SPEAKS TO YOU. DO IT, FOLLOW IT, PUT FAITH.
FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING THE WORD OF JESUS.
LISTEN TO GOD. IT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE.
I HOPE THAT THIS HAS BEEN HELPFUL TO YOU, AND LET ME JUST
SAY THAT EVERY TIME WE COME TO YOU HERE AT “MARRIAGE TODAY,” WE
ARE ABLE TO COME TO YOU BECAUSE OF THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF OUR
PARTNERS, A PRECIOUS GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO STAND WITH US EVERY
MONTH FINANCIALLY. AND FOR THAT–WE CALL THEM OUR
ROCK SOLID PARTNERS–FOR THAT, THEY GET A RESOURCE THAT NOBODY
ELSE GETS. WOULD YOU PLEASE BECOME A ROCK
SOLID PARTNER? KAREN AND I ARE ASKING YOU TO
STAND WITH US TO HELP US COME BACK TO YOU, BUT ALSO TO SEND US
AROUND THE WORLD TO PEOPLE IN NEED THAT DESPERATELY NEED
THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE. BECOME A PARTNER. HERE’S HOW YOU
CAN DO IT. ANNOUNCER: GOING THROUGH DIVORCE
IS A LOT TO ASK OF CHILDREN AND OFTEN RESULTS IN YEARS OF
EMOTIONAL PAIN. IT’S A VIOLENT RIPPING APART OF THEIR PARENTS
AND A SENSE OF ABANDONMENT. WHAT SOMETIMES WE SEE AS A QUICK WAY
OUT CAN MEAN COMPLETE LOSS FOR A CHILD.

  1. why is it so quiet whenever i try to talk to him he will not reaspond can sombody tell me how to hear him please i hope he loves me im scared i wanna make sure i did not make him mad please could sombody tell me how to hear him

  2. Read the Bible…… God gives instructions for “Salvation” It’s never too late……until it’s too late (our death)…God loves each and everyone of us. Get to know, and build a personal relationship with “God”…..

  3. I was looking for a video about how to listen and hear God speaking to me. This is so good thank you Jimmy Evans. BLESSINGS

  4. I really like this guy. Every video of His I listen to, truth after truth is poured out and rests in my spirit.
    🙌🏻

  5. A psychic ad?
    Witchcraft kicked off this monetized video.
    I enjoy these messages but what kind of message does it send when it's supporting advertising is for witchcraft?

  6. god should listen to us ! there is no god. its all a lie. you will lose your life believing that god provides, that god will answer prayers, its prayer anxiety , poverty , depression, disgust at your wasted years, then finally the poverty leads to isolation and suicide. this is all a lie. the biggest regret I have in my life is the faith that I had in god, my biggest disappointment I have is the time I wasted praying and not receiving. dont waste your life. go out and live , god/jesus is a huge lie to keep you in poverty , meek and humble never to succeed .

  7. discussing belief with a Muslim gave us a daughter, christianity is a minority misinterpreted religion of hate and intollerance

  8. Left auto play on last night, and somehow I got here! How did Pewdiepie get me here! I’m surrounded by Christians preaching about God and I feel like the only atheist!

  9. THANK YOU JESUS AM SO HAPPY TO FIND THIS VIDEO OF JIMMY EVANS REALLY INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE ME LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE CREATOR IS A BLESSING TO ME AND OTHERS GOD BLESS YOU M.O.G

  10. If you want Good to talk to you, read your bible. If you want to hear God talk to you, read your bible or loud. When you hear a pastor say, "one time the Lord told me….." Just ignore the rest.

  11. I have been with the lord now for the past 35 years
    I have several experiences of God speaking to me and later on in life it has been perfectly true
    Pastor Evans have spoken perfectly
    God bless him and all those who hear him

  12. I so enjoyed this so much. I learned a lot. I questioned myself when hearing God. This confirmed what I wanted to know. Thank you so much and God Bless You!

  13. I am alone. My husband left me at Christmas. He is going through a major midlife crisis and had fled his life and responsibilities. I am truly alone. I've been binge watching all of Jimmy's videos. This if the only thing that comforts me. I have not believed in God, Jesus or prayer until these videos appeared to me. Please pray for me. Please send messages through God for my husband to find his way home. God is missing from our marriage and I know that if my husband receives a sign from God he may start communicating to me in a spiritual marriage and accept Jesus in his heart so he may find peace or not be so depressed. Please send me a sign. Bless you… I am a work in progress. My heart is so broken. I want to feel God's peace.

  14. Heavy Father GOD ABBA JESUS thank you for who you are please help me be close to you please let me feel and be in your presence daily please give me spiritual heart , mind,speech, actions , emotional, attitude and all my works please lead me GOD,JESUS, HOLYSPIRIT forgive me my thoughts and heart , actions ,speech please help me have clarity,peace give me direction on my work job , family,house , vehicle any purchases purchase anything and paying any debts or bills
    and rebuke any devil or demonic thoughts or habits in my daily life or my family’s and work place , pets and neighbors teach me and lead me guide me in JESUS name – AMEN

  15. Thank you Mr. Evans for all of your teachings. My wife introduced me to your videos 4 year's ago. You have made the light shine in my life because of God. Pray for continuing success for you and your ministry. God bless you and your family. We would like to come and visit your church and hopefully get to meet you and your family.
    From my and my family's heart we thank you and we love you. God bless.

  16. yeah talk to god you mean we talk questioning and answering to our own questions and we think its god whoes talking to us…i never heard his voice only my voice imagining that i talk to god…

  17. I prayed this morning, I asked God to give the last name of my husband (the one he has chosen for me, not the one I want or chosen). And I asked God to tell me today, i told him I wanted it to know by a person, and let it be clear for me. Long story short, HE DID IT TODAY. HE TOLD ME MY CHILDREN'S FATHER'S LAST NAME, and he's last name is not common at all. How great is GOD! THANK YOU GOD FOR MAKING IT CLEAR TO ME WHAT I SHOULD DO.

  18. I believe from the depth and warmth of my heart that God spoke to me through this glamorous man, Lord, speak to us in any way you want, through dream, person, peace, heart, voice anything you would please to, guide us, lead us for an eternity, bring us to your kingdom forevermore, amen ✝

  19. I feel that God has made a bad batch of people here in Superior WI because people here in Superior WI think that it's okay to lead a man a stray and Deçieve him to Have him distroy his own marriage.

  20. I love the way Pastor Jimmy gives his sermons it’s direct it’s real and there’s not any fake emotion added to make it seem more impactful.

  21. God Bless all of you. I'm weary of my relationship most days. He just seems to go against truth and respect in our lives. I am glad a friend told me about Jimmy Evans. 🖐️🌹🌼🌻

  22. Good Morning, Vivian. I've prayed for you & your husband, as I believe many Christians have. Please update us.with testimonies of how God, through JESUS CHRIST, by the POWER of HIS HOLY SPIRIT, has improved your everyday life.

  23. Teach me to walk with God. I feel lost I'm in a hard place in life i need help i lost almost everything i care about but i know God is always here for me

  24. This is an interesting true-life story about God speaking to me.

  25. Pls help pray fr my marriage to ressurects my name is brother Birty n married to sylvana medon wiz two kids even though she fight fr divorce still love her

  26. My husband told me on the 6th January 2019 that he doesn’t feel the same way about me anymore. He has left me after 25 years. Yes I’m hurting, he’s all I have known and yes I love him. I honestly did not see this coming. He is my best friend. I don’t know why he has walked away from me and my daughters. I have not seen him since he walked out but he’s been in the area. I question what I did wrong and I doubt myself. I know I have been faithful and have loved him unconditionally. I ask you to please pray for me. I am confused and I know that I need to trust in the Lord but some days are really hard.

  27. Really you're explaining the nature of God? I think that's pretty big mystery that even you don't understand. Jesus is the teacher not you. His words are spirit and they are life I don't think you can say the same for your words. I don't need you to tell me that God will listen to me. Just preach the Gospel. We give up all for him. Love Jesus and obey his commands and he gives us eternal life. Nothing of repentance for the remission of sins is mentioned to receive the holy ghost. Who are you?

  28. Amen.. Lord, I know you are always with me. God knows better than us. He makes better decisions and plans for us.

  29. I have never been to church i did not know all this i need to know how i think i have heard him well i never read the bible i agree i am not sure i try and hear him but one are 2 times i never knew to talk to God but am trying to hear him i have not been saved ok God help me to hear you i want to hesr you thank you God in the name of jesus Christ

  30. Thank you Lord for your word,
    Thank you Lord for this message
    Thank you Lord my God for your servant Jimmy.

  31. This among the best sermons on hearing from God. Robert Morris has a good series called frequency

  32. Let our Lord lift us, strengthen, and help us uphold The Truth.

    Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5

    The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1

    The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13

    and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity, He is The Truth.

    Yes, those Ten Commandments is Jesus. When God tells us in Deut.6:8-9 to bind and wear His Word He is placing us in His Son, Jesus.

    Jesus keeps the custom by asking those who love Him to "keep" His Words even as He kept His Father's. So if you obey God, and love Jesus, one would "keep" both the law (Ten Commandments) and the testimony (Sermon on the Mount) as instructed in Deut.

    God will preserve life, Jesus protects it. They will keep all evil from you. Put the armour of God on all those you love. May the Spirit/voice of both The Father and The Son go with us all, for from the heart the mouth speaks.

    Let the Law that hung on the cross and the Law written in your heart not just guide you, but lead you and your loved ones. As Paul would say, put on Jesus.

    Psalms 40:7

    Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

    Hebrews 10:7

    Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

    May we learn to do God’s will with the help of Jesus. Obey God, love Jesus and may we all stand in His Day. If you believe in Jesus, put Him on. His words are spirit and they are life. Choose life. It is important that those who love Jesus receive the law and testimony before the wrath of God, or judgment comes to us or our homes. What harm can come of showing God we know His voice? Prepare your family, home, your land, fear God!!! Protect all that is precious to you. Stay in Jesus, every morning, all day, and every night in Him and trust in God, both The Father and The Son. Give Him your heart, mind and soul. Not just your heart. Know Him (Jesus) as He is today and put Him on. Resist not The Lord.

    Set your borders, protect your family, times are getting touchy, hold your ground and trust in our Lord. Be prepared both the physically and spiritually. Build up the body of Christ by 'putting on' The Lord. He will do all He says He will do when you do what He says.

  33. OK, but telling the people that way, it does not help most people! Instead: if you can't hear God, then you need to ask for the Holy Spirit to take authority of your life; the Holy Spirit (He) will then stir up your heart to sincerely repent, then He will teach you how to be transformed by renewing your mind; then, from there you will continue to be sanctified until the glorious day (the Rapture or calling away spoken by Paul). This is an epic issue; people don't know that they can't know God without the Holy Spirit being asked to take over their lives. This is why you must go through Jesus Christ to get to God b/c if you believe in Jesus Christ He will give you the gift of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God's physical formation walked on the earth, the Holy Spirit is the portal between heaven and earth, and God is His non-formation in His glory. Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect WILL of God. <<<That means you will hear Him, and you will know His will for your life b/c the Holy Spirit will teach you and instruct you in all things.

  34. When you know right and wrong, its the Holy Spirit talking to you – its a feeling, not an audible voice.
    This video is a lot of talking to say, nope, you wont hear God speaking to you, unless its a miracle. Seeing a bumper sticker and the like, giving you the answer you want, is self delusional.
    Book of Job is similar, lots of talk to say no answers forthcoming. Better to accept it, God and Jesus are there, you have the free will choice of following hIs laws or not.
    But lets be truthful and face it – you're on your own in this world. If He didnt talk and jump down to save the holocaust victims, etc, he aint gonna talk to me or you – Id love to be proved wrong!!!
    What Jimmy Evans telling us 'this tender voice you hear in your head' is nonsense and aint gonna happen. So dont get upset when it doesnt. Accept it, like ive had to, and be stronger from this, trather than questioning your life and worrying about it. * 'Help others who need His help' should be the lesson learned * !!!!!!!!!!! not these fairweather religious videos like Sid Roth etc.

  35. Want to know how to hear God speak to you? He already wrote the Holy Bible (King James). Try reading it.

  40. Its probably not God, it will start off nice then threaten with bad things and come off evil. Wolf's in sheeps cloth

  41. How do you know God really does all you say He does. I believe in God but my husband’s decision on divorce is out of my control and I don’t know what to do

  42. Please pray for me that the Lord will put his yoke on me and remove this burden off of me in the name of Jesus Christ. God's will be done. Amen

  43. God speaks to me in my dreams all the time. He told me my mom was going to pass, and it came true. I get visions and feelings all the time.

  44. wow!!!! i have always wanted to learn how to hear God's voice and this video has been extremely helpful in this regard.
    i appreciate the work done by pastor Jimmy Evans and the team at Marriage today, May the good Lord continue to mightly bless and use you for his glory.

  45. I cannot hear God above the bondage of my sins, I feel like a hostage to sin and I pray constantly, grew up in church I know the word and have tried hard to be saved and stay saved but I always go back to filthy sin and I just cant seem to break the connection with me and sin and start a relationship with Jesus. I pray at least every other day the same prayer please Lord break me free from this sin, please Jesus help me…

  46. Such a good sermon, but they spoilt it in the end… If you $x or more you get Y… Ridiculous… That is not biblical.. very disappointing.

  47. PRAISE OUR LIVING LORD OF ISRAEL PRAISE OUR LIVING INFANT JESUS OUR KING OF KINGS PRAISE OUR LIVING HOLY SPIRIT OUR COMFORTER

  48. I heard him while I was waking up yesterday..his voice is actually my physical voice but he says things that I dont say and it's always a solution… God is real guys!!!

  49. bro, you have to be normal and understand the word, and be in Union with him through the word, not through voices

  50. I have a question…..I’ve been praying for money right……ok…..so just recently a big sum of money just appeared in my bank account, I don’t know who it’s for or why is it there…….is this my blessings?? 🤷🏻‍♀️😆

  51. The absolute worst type of abuse that can be inflicted upon children is that of psychological abuse, far more damaging than even physical abuse, Christians seem to believe they have a right to terrorize the young pliable minds of children with stories of people being burned alive and continually tortured for eternity if they don`t fall into line and worship a mysterious entity that nobody has ever seen, would you subject your children to hours of the most realistic horror movies such as the Evil Dead series or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and then expect your kids minds to not be affected? well the equivalent of that scenario is to give them hours and hours of horror stories about what will happen to them if they don`t love an invisible man who lives in the sky and dedicate their whole lives to the promotion of that belief. The sanity of whole generations is being put at risk by the vivid imaginations of religious fanatics all over the world, Don`t believe me? take the case of a young 11 year old child in Iran who suffered from Downs Syndrome, she was found absentmindedly tearing pages out of the Qur`an, the howling mob were intent on lynching her on the spot and she was only saved by a Police Officer who barricaded her inside a police station to protect her, later she would be convicted and sentenced to death for Blasphemy (since commuted) This is a prime example of what happens when generations of children are brainwashed from birth and grow up to follow any religious doctrine, The whole world is suffering from severe mental breakdown and religion plays a large part as a cause of this malady.

  52. Isaiah 11:2 practice this at all times for Jesus is the son of God. The father the word the Holy Ghost are one. Like father like son.

  53. Marriage Today..Not only God talks to us, but it is present every time we attend a Holy Mass or the MIRACLE OF MIRACLES: https://www.michaeljournal.org/articles/roman-catholic-church/item/the-holy-mass
    Please, share it because for all humankind as Jesus and Mary explains this testimony.
