'HENCEFORTH KNOW WE NO MAN AFTER THE FLESH.' 2 CORINTHIANS 5:16
When God speaks to us He often does it through people. The trouble is, our spiritual ears are not developed and attuned to His voice. In some cases we have become doubting and cynical. What a loss! Your fear of 'getting it wrong' will rob you of vital input only God can give you. Jacob woke up one morning after having an encounter with God the night before and said, 'Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it' (Geneses 28:16 NIV). You need to wake up spiritually and (a) desire above all else to hear from God; (b) eliminate mental clutter, slow down and take the time to understand what He's saying; (C ) Believe that God will actually speak to you. If you don't, you will be at the mercy of your own, best thinking, or worse, the influence of others just like you. Self-sufficiency is the enemy of hearing from God! As long as you can do it without God, you won't reach for God. Seven times of the chapters of the book of Revelation God says, 'He that has an ear [a spiritually developed one] let him hear what the spirit says, 'Until you hear from God you're working with severely limited information and you'll keep making mistakes, costly ones. Hearing from God must become a priority so great, you adjust your schedule and your attitudes to it every day. Paul writes, 'Henceforth know we no man after the flesh. 'Stop shutting out the people God wants to speak to you through because they are flawed. God doesn't speak to you through their flesh; He speaks through their spirit, to your spirit!
