The reality of a personal relationship with God and hearing from God is for those who have called upon the name of the Lord Jesus with desire to let Him work what He wants in your life. The great challenge in life is to truly know the Lord. Get to know what He is like. He leads gently, He invites you to pursue Him, He doesn’t drive or condemn in the way He speaks, but fills you with hope if you are willing.
To have the best opportunities to hear God – we need to first prepare ourselves by consecrating ourselves to the Lord, meditating on the Word, getting into His presence and then we need to learn to WAIT silently, hopefully, expectantly and longingly for as long as it takes until the Lord is pleased to speak to us.
So here are the confessions you could use. They include commitments to God, because God’s promises ARE conditional.
