Maybe if we called the trinity, the tripod, we would not debate it as much. Okay, bad idea. The tripod of hearing God is something I shared in a sermon last year, but it is becoming more and more real to me. Not sure I ever blogged it, so here goes.
- Word of God. What does the word of God have to say about it? It speaks about more than we could ever imagine.
- People of God. Seek counsel from people that you know walk with Jesus (not just a professing Christian, but someone actively following Christ). Then, pay attention to their cautions and affirmations. They are very indicative of God's heart. And remember- if it ain't sound like God, it probably ain't God.
- Spirit of God. By far, the hardest to explain and the most mysterious channel, it is extremely important to listen to the spirit of God in you! Acknowledge your thoughts. Listen to the whispers in your soul. And pay very close attention to your conscience.
“The Lord merely spoke , and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command.” Psalm 33:6, 9
