Verses to Cling To: When You Can’t Hear God’s Voice

God can speak to us in a bazillion different ways, how He speaks to me could be completely different that how He speaks to you. (Because we’re all unique beings He speaks to us how He knows we will listen!)

First of all, make sure you a reading your Bible so that you know what His voice sounds like. If you keep reading you will learn how God speaks to His Children! He chose a burning bush to get Moses’ attention! What does He use to get your attention?

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” John 16:13

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

This is said several times in the bible. I need to reassure you that He is there and here and everywhere you go. He’s with you! He knows you and He knows what you’re struggling with even if you are too busy or distracted to notice His presence.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

Also, make sure you are attending a church. God speaks through others often!

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 3:22

Verses to Cling to: When You’re Having Trouble Conceiving

I’m thinking of starting a new series of posts called Verses to Cling To. What do you think?

Here are the verses I clinged… clung… (whatever) to when I was disappointed month after month of negative tests.

Let’s start at the beginning…

“God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it…'” Genesis 1:28

“And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” Genesis 9:1

GOD SAID IT! (And several times I might add) He said have kids! You can hold to that, that He will bless you in His time!

They rose early in the morning and worshiped before the Lord; then they went back to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the Lord remembered her. And in due time Hannah conceived and bore a son, and she called his name Samuel, for she said, “I have asked for him from the Lord.” 1 Samuel 1:19-20

Just like Rebekah, Noah’s family, Adam and Eve, Hannah and a ton of others in the bible, through prayer, petition and thanks God will bless you.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Psalm 127:3

Forget the Future

As Christians, we always hear, that we need to let go of the past. We have a new name, and that we’re born in Christ, but what about our future?

So, something happened at work that’s doubled my workload. (BLAH!) I’m frantically trying to get everything done, I’m flooded by images of how bad it’ll be when I come back to work the next day.

I’m already overwhelmed, and nothing’s happened. Literately, this situation has yet to even really affect me. However, because I’m worrying about how this WILL (future tense) affect me, it’s causing me to freak out. How am I letting something that I’ve created hurt me so much?

Jesus defeated the grave, he can defeat my situation.

Here are some verses I’m holding onto to let go of the future, and I’m declaring about my future.

“Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 40:31
He will provide me the strength to do all the work I have to.

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
No one will get mad at me if I can not complete everything, because God is for me.

“Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” Proverbs 12:25

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
He is working on something even better, than I can imagine.
