EP. 6: How We Hear From God
Play • 31 min

Show Summary: 

Do you find that God speaks to you in a powerful, audible voice? Or do you have a hard time discerning if God is speaking to you at all? In this episode of God Hears Her, Elisa and Eryn discuss a number of ways we can hear God.

Notes and Quotes: 

  • “The title of this podcast is God Hears Her, and to be honest it has always thrown me. God hears her . . . wait, how do we hear God?”
  • God speaks to us during our Scripture reading.
  • Some of us may hear God audibly, whether it be loud and known or as a soft whisper.
  • We can hear from God through other people: our mentors, friends, family. Be sure to discern appropriately whether the person speaking into you is doing it from the heart of God. Review their words against Scripture and allow God to confirm. 
  • God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit, the living Word of God. This can sometimes bring out unexplainable emotion in you, even tears.
  • Eryn’s unplugged morning routine: 1. What am I feeling? 2. Recap yesterday. 3. Talk to God. What is on your heart and mind? 4. Confess. 5. Invite Him in: “God, what do you want to tell me?” 6. Open up Scripture.
  • Journaling can allow us to hear and connect with God.
  • Listen for God while you enjoy art, nature, music, books, conversation, or even a Bible study.
  • Pick a word. Each year focus on a word that God has given to you and really lean into His wisdom and focus on that word. 
  • “How do I hear God? Sometimes it’s in the silence of just sitting and knowing that He hears me.”

Episode 12: Prayers That Will Drastically Change Your Life
We've been on such a fruitful journey on this podcast. We've learned that prayer is the way we communicate with the Maker of the Universe, and He not only hears us, but He also responds. We've learned that through prayer, we access healing, wisdom, discernment, peace, protection, joy, and so much power we could never experience on our own. On our last podcast in this series, we share specific prayers that can drastically change your life. We also close out this series by praying together over these areas so that you can start experiencing the benefit of prayer today. Key Takeaways: • If changing our thoughts from negative to positive can turn our day from good to bad, they also have to power to direct the course of our lives. • Our Heavenly Father is ready and willing to guide and direct our steps and provide us with His wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions. • Even when we are weary and weak, the Lord is willing and ready to grant us His strength to surrender to the things we think I can't do or be.

Living by The Golden Rule
The whole idea of not judging others can sometimes be very hard to understand—especially when people continue saying and doing some truly awful things. But as women of God, what we still have to remember—what we still have to keep in mind—whether we want to or not, is this: We don’t always know that person’s heart or their entire story. We just don’t know their complete history. We also don’t necessarily know what they’ve been through in terms of childhood pain, or some other kind of pain or abuse that they may have endured once they became an adult. Or they might even be struggling with mental and emotional issues that haven’t been diagnosed or properly treated. Because while none of what I just mentioned justifies bad behavior—nor does it give anyone an automatic pass when it comes to treating others badly, there are times when we may need to think before being so quick to judge or criticize someone or cut them off completely. In today’s episode, I discuss The Golden Rule and how important it is to treat others the way we want to be treated.
