This month at Ignite Purpose, we are focusing on the theme of “hearing God.” Today’s video featured Victoria Mizerak interviewing Heather Ruments, founder of Healing Streams Ministry, who shared her insights on hearing God’s voice and discerning His guidance. Heather’s journey into hearing God’s voice began as she grew deeper in her relationship with Jesus. She discovered that God speaks to us not only through Scripture but also through impressions and promptings in our hearts. As she shares her testimony, we learn that God’s voice is gentle, loving, and in alignment with His Word. But how can we learn to discern God’s voice amidst the noise of life?

Heather offers some practical steps:

  • Dive into the Word: Spend intentional time reading and meditating on Scripture. God often speaks to us through His Word, giving us guidance and comfort.
  • Journaling: Take some quiet moments to journal your thoughts and questions, and ask God what He wants you to know. Be open to His leading as you write down your feelings and impressions.
  • Listen to Worship Music: Set aside time to listen to worship music with the lyrics. Let the words of praise and adoration draw you closer to God’s presence.
  • Pray for Discernment: Ask God to quiet your mind and shut down any negative voices or distractions. Seek His wisdom and discernment as you seek to hear His voice.

Heather’s journey of hearing God’s voice has transformed her life, and she encourages us to take intentional steps to cultivate a deeper connection with God. It’s essential to believe that God wants to communicate with us about everything, including our businesses and families.

John 10:27

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

So, What… for This Week?

As God’s children, we have the privilege of hearing and following His voice, which leads us on a path of purpose and fulfillment. Let us surrender our lives to God and seek His voice in all aspects of life—personal, professional, and family. As we do so, we will experience God’s guiding hand leading us towards His divine purpose. Join us in this journey of hearing God and living on purpose for His purpose. Together, we can make a lasting impact for God’s kingdom in our families, businesses, and communities.  Stay tuned for more inspiring discussions on listening prayer with Heather Ruments. Have a blessed day, and may you continue to seek God’s voice in every area of your life.
