5 Ways To Tune In To God

Do you realize the God who created everything and reigns above all is interested in us? He cares about the smallest details of our life and welcomes us to seek Him and ask of Him. He desires to answer our prayers and commune with us.

Here are five ways to tune into God's voice:

1. Withdraw: Get alone in a quiet place. Discipline the mind to be still.

2. Wait: Calm the thoughts and emotions the run through our mind. Practice being still. God speaks to those who take time to listen.

3. Watch: Add a visual element to prayer. Picture in your mind God's Word and in prayer. Ask God to open our spiritual senses to Him (Ephesians 1:18).

4. Write:
Writing out prayers and answers helps keep prayer focused and is a reminder of our prayers and God's answers.

5. Worship: Thank God for speaking to us. When we receive God's response, our natural reaction is personal worship.
