“I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected.” (Habakkuk 2:1)
Hearing the voice of God is the birthright of the born-again. Like Habakkuk, we can take a posture before God that enables us to hear His voice. 1) Meet with the Lord regularly in a special place of prayer; “I will stand my watch.” 2) Look for God to speak to you in dreams and visions: I will “watch to see.” 3) Listen for the word of the Lord: “He will say to me.” 4) Keep a journal of things that God says: “Write the vision.” 5) Wait for God to bring it to pass: “It will surely come.”
Open, honest, hear-to-heart relationship with God makes our devotions dynamic. Habakkuk’s transparent interchange with God models for us a real relationship with the Lord rather than a religious one. God invites us to bring our deepest questions, internal struggles, and turmoil before Him. He welcomes our questions and is able to answer the; however, be prepared that His answers may be different from what you expect.
You are loved, Pastor Don
