Episode Description:

Sometimes we can feel like we are asking God for answers but not getting any. Sometimes it may be because our ‘antenna’ is tuned to the wrong frequency. In this episode, we unpack four different ways we can ‘hear’ God – through hearing, seeing, sensing/feeling, and knowing/perceiving. We cover the internal and external ways for each method. As usual, Gary and Jane share personal examples.


Episode Notes:

  1. Auditory or hearing God.
  • Most common
  • When we talk about ‘hearing’ God – we can presume it’s the only way.
  • Still small voice internally – 1 Kings 19:11-12
  • Jeremiah 1. The word of the Lord came to me.
  • Loud voice externally
  1. Visual
  • Habakkuk 2:1 “I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me.”
  • See things in the spirit
  • Internal sight eg Amos 7 – plumb line
  • Psalm 139 – my eyes saw your unformed body
  • External eg Jeremiah 1:11-13 seeing almond tree branch
  • Jeremiah 18:1-11 Jeremiah being instructed to go to the potter’s house and God showed him through the potter what he was crafting about Israel.
  • If God draws your attention to something, stop and ask Him what it is He is trying to tell you. Exodus 3:3-4 Moses saw a bush on fire that wasn’t burning up, so he thought “Hmm, I’ll go over and see this strange sight.”
  • Kids seeing demons. Focus on the opposite.
  • Dreams so important. In Matthew 1 & 2, Joseph had three dreams which saved the life of Jesus because Joseph obeyed the dreams he had.
  • Joel 2:28 & repeated in Acts 2:17. Your sons and daughters will prophesy; your young men will see visions and your old men dream dreams.
  1. Sense/feel
  • Using senses – feel, touch, taste.
  • Gut intuition. Impression. Imagination.
  • The Gospels are full of stories where Jesus showed compassion towards people.
  • Changing spiritual atmospheres is briefly addressed.
  1. Perceive or know
  • Luke 5:22 – Jesus knew what they were thinking in their hearts.
  • Idea comes into my head.
  1. Important points:
  • Cultivate intimacy with Father God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus.
  • Important to hear God for ourselves and not go running to prophets.
  • We can intentionally grow in the four various ways.
  • Seeing – people can shut that sense down.
  • Prayer to cleanse people’s imagination.



Ask God, “Jesus, if you could play a game with me, like a childhood game, what would it be and why?”
