What I Got Wrong About Hearing God’s Voice

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. 

(Psalm 9:10 ESV)


I’ve been curious about the topic of hearing God’s voice for a long time.

To think that an all-powerful and all-knowing God loves us so much that He desires a personal relationship with us through His son Jesus Christ. The same God who is perfect (Deuteronomy 32:4), capable of doing the impossible (Luke 18:27), and created all things (Colossians 1:16) sees me, sees you, and wants to be involved in our lives. (I’m in awe of that!)

But I remember being confused about what it actually looked like to hear Him and follow His voice in my everyday life.

Let God’s Voice Be The Loudest Voice In Your Life

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

(Isaiah 26:3 ESV)


What’s one area of your life that seems impossible? The hardest to overcome, the hardest to have faith, the hardest to redeem. It could be a situation, a struggle, an insecurity, a belief — a particular area where, at some point, doubt seeped in and has never left.

I’ve recently learned that if there’s any place you should never doubt yourself, it’s at a roller skating rink. 

Yes, really.

When God Gets Your Attention | Peace in the Storm (Part Two)

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

(Psalms 139:23-24 NIV)


Imagine the amount of preparation that goes into a wedding.

I had a tiny glimpse into the process several months ago as my brother and now sister-in-law planned for their wedding day in February. There were hours, days, weeks, and months of preparation. Selecting the right date, finalizing the guests list, figuring out the venue, finding the right dress, the right tux, the photographer, the food, the bridesmaids, the groomsmen — the seemingly endless list goes on. 

But this entire season of planning, preparation, refining, and getting even the smallest details right were all for one special long-awaited day. 

Doesn’t that sound familiar?

Your Status Doesn’t Matter: God Can Still Use You

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

(2 Corinthians 9:8 ESV)


What’s holding you back?

Too many times we believe the idea that we need to “level up” before God uses us. That we need to look a certain way first, make a certain amount of money first, figured out this or that first, get (insert a major goal of yours) first.

And trust me, I’ve been there, too. We live in a world that demands certain qualifications before the job, the school, the opportunity, the next step. We often base our value on our resumes or the amount of likes we get on Instagram. 

But what if none of these things really mattered?
