Depression – Hearing Small Voice Of God Audio

Depression – Hearing Small Voice Of God. Depression comes to us when depressed, in fear, and when the Lord is not happy with us. This is not a good voice to want to hear. How do we hear the Lord’s voice. Just listen! We’ve been taught He doesn’t talk today. Not true. Seminaries don’t teach ministers how to hear God. The relationship the Lord wants with us is the same relationship the Father and Jesus have. There is a unique closeness the Lord desires to experience with us. A unique aspect of the followers of Jesus Christ is we can communicate with God.

A major problem is not God is not talking to us. The problem is we won’t take time to listen. We won’t tune in His frequency. God is a talking God. He is not a god of stone or some object. He is alive and talking and He wants to talk to us.

From Genesis to Revelation God is communicating and talking to His people. Jesus desires to lead us through life. He said He’s called us and purposed us. If we will hear His voice and follow Him we can have an abundant life.

There’s the 1) authoritative voice of God, 2) the still small voice of God, 3) the witnessing voice of God and 4) the enlightenment voice of God.

14 “I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

1 Kings 19:1-4

1 Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, ” So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not
make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”
3 And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and
left his servant there.
4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O LORD, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers.”

1 Kings 19:5-8

5 He lay down and slept under a juniper tree; and behold, there was an angel touching him, and he said to him, “Arise, eat.”
6 Then he looked and behold, there was at his head a bread cake {baked on} hot stones, and a jar of
water. So he ate and drank and lay down again.
7 The angel of the LORD came again a second time and touched him and said, “Arise, eat, because the journey is too great for you.”
8 So he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to
Horeb, the mountain of God.

1 Kings 19:9-14

9Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD {came} to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
10 He said, ” I have been very zealous for the LORD, the God of hosts; for the sons of Israel have
forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars and killed Your prophets with the sword. And I alone
am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”
11 So He said, ” Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD was
passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the LORD; {but} the LORD {was} not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, {but} the LORD {was} not in the earthquake.

12 After the earthquake a fire, {but} the LORD {was} not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a
gentle blowing.
13 When Elijah heard {it,} he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a voice {came} to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
14 Then he said, ” I have been very zealous for the LORD, the God of hosts; for the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars and killed Your prophets with the sword. And I alone am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.”
