Can anyone hear God's voice, or only prophetic people?
Hearing God's voice is essential to walking with God and living out the fullness of our callings on the Earth. Everyone can hear God's voice, but prophetic people are ones who seem to pick up on His voice sooner and stronger than others. This is because they are called to walk in this area and are called to hear the voice of God for others.
At 5am on the final day of 2016 my alarm clock went off and I got out of bed to go and spend some time with the Lord before the rest of the family woke up. When my feet hit the floor the Lord told me to go back to bed. So I did what I was told and crawled back into bed and then He began to speak to me in my secret place.
God spoke to me this morning about writing again so I got my book, sat down on the couch and starting writing down what He had to say to me. I had not written anything in about a year because of the season I was in. There are seasons for everything and I knew that I was coming to an end of a season and because of that I had been asking Him what is next.
Friend of God
I had an encounter with The Father not long ago where I found myself walking with The Father on a long beach. When I looked across the water I could not see land. It felt like I was walking on a sandy beach beside the ocean but I knew that I was in the Spirit, and in the Spirit, the ocean or sea represents the nations. As I was walking The Father began to speak what it meant to be a Friend of God.
