Back in 2014 I wrote a blog post about hearing from God. The following is some of the original content, with some of my updates.
Romans 8:28 says, "and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Wow, called for His purpose -- I often wonder sometimes how many times I've missed God during certain times of my life when I know good and well I was called and chosen to do His will. As I reflect on the times He has spoken in the ways I clearly missed, I think wow that could have been an opportunity. But the danger in that thinking is that I can get bogged down with living in regret and disappointment. I refuse to reflect with regret and despair. I rather reflect and think of those times as learning milestones, a test for my testimony, and to help me (and others) go to the next level. Yes, it's a conscious choice I make to maintain positive thinking for growth, so I can hear Him when He speaks. And I will never give up, because God has me here for a reason. He has all of us here for a reason and it's not to just exist into nothingness. It's to expand on His thoughts and His kingdom. It's to make a difference in the world while we still can. We can do that by hearing from Him, because that allows us to go with His flow. Then we have to listen. It takes practice and being consistent. It's not too late for any of us to get things right and get things in order for progress and success in the name of Jesus.
