If You Want To Start Hearing From God Read This

Published

on

Many times we cry out to God to speak to us anytime we’re nervous, anxious or overwhelmed.

When we need something we look for his voice for guidance. The good news is God still wants to hear from us and talk to us. God speaks to people continuously but too often they skip listening to God’s messages because they only rarely try His guidance – Normally when they are going through a crisis or facing a major decision. Then, people are confused and overwhelmed with a desperate need to hear from God because they don’t know what they should do. They begin to ask how to hear from God and why not

That will not be the way it is. And it can be done, God wants us to hear His messages. The trick is to ignore formulas and jokes to hear from God. Instead, concentrate on the kind of relationship with God that will encourage you to hear God speak frequently.

The closer you get to God, the more you can connect with Him, research and hear from Him and the more God uses these experiences to shape you into the person He wants you to become.

The refusal to listen to God is one of the problems facing Soo many Christians.

What they are not aware of is that God has spoken to them all the time, but they have not understood. You may feel like God doesn’t talk to you, whether you’re not careful or you can’t hear Him. You will discover the different ways God has spoken to you and how you can begin to hear from God after reading this article.

Discover that God created you with Himself for a close friendship.

In a relationship with Him, by definition, how you hear best about God. God wants you to accept His will when you participate openly and intelligently in daily interactions with Him. God’s will is to come personally with you and chat immediately to you as you walk through life. Then you will become more like His Father, Jesus, to truly understand Him.

Do more than just hear God for your goal.

Your ultimate goal should not be this, while hearing from God. Put your main goal in a close relationship with God to be a spiritually mature human. Only thus can you hear what God has to teach you clearly and correctly.

Try not to push Him to say anything to you.

No matter how much you want to hear from God or how much you can force Him to speak to you, it’s only when He wants to communicate with you that you can hear from God. Keep on having a healthy relationship with God and wait until His time sends you messages. However, if God will not determine what you have wished for and what you believe is within the Scripture moral values, you will freely continue to make your own choices as to what you do and what you find to be within the will of God..

LISTEN AND PAY ATTENTION

The first step to learning from God is listening and paying careful attention. Do not listen to the conversation or the reaction, but watch out and get clarity. God doesn’t like speaking when it’s loud and busy everywhere, even though He can talk at these moments, but you hear God the best in silence. So start listening from now on, and paying attention away.

Recognize God’s voice above all others.
From practice, you can learn to understand God’s voice when He speaks and to respond confidently to what He says. When recurring thoughts, pray over them to determine if they can come from God. Mind that God would never give you a message that contradicts Bible values. God’s voice often holds the weight of power within it and communicates a spirit of love, confidence, happiness, reasonableness, and goodwill. If you think that God will speak to you, ask Him to clarify as you read and meditate on the Scriptures, as you are alert to the circumstances you find yourself in, or as you sense the Holy Spirit’s thoughts in your mind.

Recognize that God interacts with your mind in many ways, but most frequently.

God may select any of several different ways to communicate with you, depending on what’s best at various times and situations in particular. Often in dramatic ways, for example by angels, dreams, or extraordinary occurrences, you will hear God’s message. But more often than not, you will hear God-talk in your thoughts and He will use ordinary activities like reading the Scriptures, praying silently, learning from situations, or finding guidance from other Christians to reach out to you while you think about them. If appropriate, God will use dramatic means to get your attention, but His intention is for you to be so closely related to Him that you will be vigilant as He interacts with you. God typically talks through what people have described as a “still, small voice” to inspire those He loves to want to walk closely with Him through life.

DREAMS

You ‘re in big trouble if you don’t dream, because if things don’t go well, you won’t know why, or what God is doing about it. The first step to being safe is this, if you’re dreaming. God communicates by visions. He will warn you, and inform you through dreams to show the future to you. And if you’re dreaming, you’ll probably feel a part of the message from God for you.

THE BIBLE

God has already spoken to you and the Bible reflects it. He has already given you directions and told you what could happen in the future. God has made you aware of His blessings and rights in Him. And to ask Him again is like repetition. You can hear God through His Word. If you want to read the Bible, you listen to God’s word for you.

INTUITION/FEELING

You could be in a situation and just feel the need to do something, because the situation will be solved when you do it or you will get your testimony. It is God who guides you by your thoughts and your emotions and talks to you. But, if you have the desire to do something wrong, then this is the devil. It is God who listens to you and encourages you by giving you His peace about it, when you feel the need to do something and have great peace in mind.

VISIONS

You can also just see moving images, or only move through them like a video app. That’s like a vision, and God is speaking to remind you and show you through dreams and to assure you of it.

THROUGH SYMBOLS

If you think for it and go about your day, you see a message about it, it’s God talking to you. For example, you ‘re praying to God for a job, and the next day someone comes to tell you that they’ve just got a new job, that’s a sign from God that you’re on the way. Instead of asking “Why when” Why talks by signs and signals you will be satisfied, responsibility is left to you.

THROUGH OTHERS

God will send someone to ask you. The message is His Word to you. It may be a sermon preaching to you, the priest, something that someone demands of you or an order given to you. God will talk to you through others so don’t take it for granted. There are some of the ways God converses with you. My question to you is this: Have you ever seen any of these? If so, perhaps God has already spoken to you. It should be on the scale of your current point of prayer. Tell God that you want to hear Him more because you are already listening to Him and you want a deep friendship with Him.

Let me know the various ways God talks to you in the section Comments. Don’t forget to share this post and inspire others too.

Why R. Kelly Was Jailed for 30 years

Published

on

R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking.

U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly imposed the sentence on Kelly and ordered him to pay a $100,000 fine after a nearly three-hour hearing. Kelly did not address the court.

The victims held hands while the sentence was read and Kelly had no apparent reaction.

“Although sex was certainly a weapon that you used, this is not a case about sex. It’s a case about violence, cruelty and control,” Judge Donnelly told him during the sentencing.

Kelly’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said they look forward to the appeal.

“30 years is like life for him,” she said. She also emphasized he is “not a predator.”

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Breon Peace called the sentence a “significant outcome” for Kelly’s victims.

Kelly “preyed upon children and young women..for decades,” according to Peace. He would “force victims, including minors” to be in “porno films” which the singer “produced and directed.”

“The sentence shows that the witnesses reclaim control over their lives,” he added. “This is a victory for them. It doesn’t matter how powerful..justice only hears the truth”

Seven of Kelly’s victims gave impact statements during the sentencing hearing.

“You made me do things that broke my spirit. I literally wished I would die because of how low you made me feel,” one woman told the Grammy-winning, multiplatinum-selling singer. “Do you remember that?”

Another woman, sobbing and sniffling as she spoke, said Kelly’s conviction restored her faith in the legal system.

“I once lost hope,” she said, addressing the court and prosecutors, “but you restored my faith.”

The woman said Kelly victimized her after she went to a concert when she was 17.

“I was afraid, naive and didn’t know to handle the situation,” she said, so she didn’t speak up at the time.

“Silence,” she said, “is a very lonely place.”

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was convicted on one count of racketeering. The racketeering including 14 underlying acts of sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, and sex trafficking charges.

R. Kelly was also convicted on eight violations of the Mann Act. The legislation makes it illegal to transport people across state lines for “immoral purposes.”

The trial lasted six weeks.

Prosecutors argued that Kelly had used his "fame, money and popularity" to recruit women and teenagers for "his own sexual gratification."

Prosecutors had argued that Kelly should receive at least 25 years in prison for his conviction.

Kelly used his “fame, money and popularity” to systematically “prey upon children and young women for his own sexual gratification,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.

“He continued his crimes and avoided punishment for them for almost 30 years and must now be held to account,” prosecutors wrote.

R. Kelly was convicted on nine charges in his racketeering, sex trafficking trial.

Kelly’s lawyers had argued he should get no more than 10 years in prison because he had a traumatic childhood “involving severe, prolonged childhood sexual abuse, poverty, and violence.”

As an adult with “literacy deficiencies,” the star was “repeatedly defrauded and financially abused, often by the people he paid to protect him,” his lawyers said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

BREAKING NEWS: R. Kelly given 30 years in jail for….

Published

R. Kelly given 30 years in jail for sex abuse.

 

US singer R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for using his status to run a scheme to sexually abuse children and women.

In September, a jury in New York convicted the R&B artist, 55, of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes.

Lawyers for the singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, say he will appeal.

Survivors on Wednesday said he had degraded and humiliated them.

Ahead of his sentencing, a handful of women took the stand to confront Kelly over his decades-long-abuses.

A woman identified only as Angela called the singer a Pied Piper who “grew in wickedness” with every new victim, while others who were not named testified he had broken their spirits.

“I literally wished I would die because of how you made me feel,” said one.

Dressed in prison khakis and dark glasses, Kelly declined to make a statement of his own.

US District Judge Ann Donnelly said the celebrity had used sex as a weapon, forcing his victims to do unspeakable things and saddling them with incurable diseases.

“You taught them that love is enslavement and violence,” she said.

The court heard how Kelly – known for hit songs like I Believe I Can Fly and Ignition – used his celebrity status and influence to lure women and children into sexual abuse over two decades.

Jurors at his six-week trial in Brooklyn heard how he trafficked women between different US states, assisted by managers, security guards and other members of his entourage.

The court also heard how Kelly had illegally obtained paperwork to marry singer Aaliyah when she was 15 in 1994, seven years before the singer died in a plane crash.

The certificate, leaked at the time, listed Aaliyah’s age as 18. The marriage was annulled months later.

Federal prosecutors had recommended that Kelly be sentenced to more than 25 years in prison, given the seriousness of his crimes and “the need to protect the public from further crimes”.

But his lawyers called for a sentence of 10 years – the mandatory minimum for his conviction – or less.

They portrayed Kelly as growing up poor in a household rife with domestic violence and suffering sexual abuse from a young age.

Kelly has been in custody since he was indicted by federal prosecutors in New York and Chicago in July 2019.

His three years behind bars have been eventful, including a beating from a fellow inmate in 2020 and a bout with Covid-19 earlier this year.

The singer faces further legal action in August, when he goes on trial again, this time in Chicago on child sex images and obstruction charges.

He is also due to face sex abuse charges in courts in Illinois and Minnesota.
