Hearing the Unheard

Hearing the Unheard

As the minister walked to the next person in line for prayer, he began receiving knowledge; this man was struggling with alcohol, considering leaving his wife of twenty years and their three children. The minister first stood silent in front of him, then prayed, “You cannot do what you are planning to do, and what you are struggling with will end as you surrender to the Lord completely.” It was his first experience with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and it left him in awe.

As we walk in the spirit, we encounter similar situations. We hear what is unsaid, discern struggles, spiritual battles, and wonder what to do with it all. When we perceive something, we yield to the Lord for His instructions. He may lead us to keep it to ourselves and pray accordingly; speak forth wisdom on the situation, with love and discretion; or wait for the right timing to guide us. 

The Lord reveals to us, to heal through us, as we bind and loose under His direction. With humility, we seek the Lord and trust Him to move through us as He wills. The purpose of revelation is transformation, from glory to glory!

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

Divine wisdom is available to us, but we forget to seek after it because we question whether we will hear the answer. God desires for us to hear and receive His wisdom even more than we ourselves. 

Our past errors in hearing God make us unsure, and we doubt what we think is of Him. We hesitate to trust what we hear and end up going with what we know for sure, with natural instincts leading instead of His spirit. We also question the divine wisdom that comes through others because past events have broken our trust.  

Forgiving ourselves for our mistakes, by God’s grace, is the key to opening our hearing of faith. We need to understand that we hear partly and that our hearing improves as we grow in the knowledge of who He is. Trusting that He loves us, even when we err, helps us pursue His wisdom with fervency. 

We can come boldly to the throne of grace, ask, and receive His wisdom by faith. Keeping a journal and talking to Him about what we sense in our spirit becomes a joyful journey of discovering His love, guidance, and care, from glory to glory! 

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
