How do you know if you hear God, Do I Hear God or Myself?
Because I didn’t know who I was hearing, myself or God, I didn’t trust this voice nor follow it some of the time.
Luckily I followed it when it said, “Don’t have radiation and you will heal,” or I would have died doing the radiation treatment that three doctors told me I needed to do to stay alive and control my hyperthyroidism. As it turned out, I had too much radiation from nuclear testing and this caused my thyroid problem. Nobody knew this, excepting God. My openness to hear God saved my life! And my openness to follow what I heard saved my life.
So the question, how do I know if I hear God, or it is my mind?
I asked to hear God, exactly, beyond a doubt. My clear asking brought about clear receiving. I have concluded that God is hilarious! Next I got an ear infection and could not hear anything externally. But I could hear an inner voice totally clear, beyond a doubt and whenever this inner voice spoke, a stream of energy, similar to a ten mile an hour wind, swept from head to foot through my body. To this day, six years later, this inner voice is loud and clear combined with a current of energy through my body.
I got exactly what I asked to receive, yea! Step one then is to ask to clearly hear God beyond a doubt. What happened next was, I became devoted to God, in love with God, trusting God, and made a commitment to follow God one hundred percent. But the old saying, watch what you ask for, applies. I was given guidance that scared me royally until I was sweating with fear. But I kept my promise and followed this inner voice for better or worse. Much of the guidance did not make sense at the time. Years later, I can see how I grew in every way and how one step created the next step and on and on until I am doing certain actions today.
I did something else at the same time for better or worse. I asked God to release all my fear. This made sense to me, if I didn’t have fear, then I would be living love all of the time, right? Ha, ha, God had fun with this one. This inner voice had me confront all of my fears, and for five years I was sweating daily. I never knew I had so much fear. But I got exactly what I wanted, to release my fears and to hear God.
To hear God is the first step into the right direction, because then you will fall in love with God, become devoted to God, and follow God, and do things that you didn’t think possible, and serve the world in ways you never dreamed about.
Is it worth it, to hear God? Yes, there is nothing better than to hear God within. For more help to hear God, read my book, Embracing the Miraculous, Attaining Optimal Health on All Levels.
