2 Corinthians 7:1 - 'Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.'
To hear God's Word, you must be in position to hear it. There are so many voices that can be activated in your mind. If you live according to your flesh, then the voice of your flesh is what you hear. If you live according to your friends or others around you, then those are the voices that you will hear. If you listen to explicit music, watch filthy videos constantly, or R rated movies all the time full of sex, violence, and nudity, then those are the voices that you will hear in your head. Whatever you sow to is what speaks to you. That's why it's so important to fast and pray frequently. To cleanse your mind from the filth of the world and hear God clearly. Reading the bible is not enough. You can spend your whole day living foul or indulging in foul things and then try to read the Word at night and you will either fall asleep holding the bible or read several chapters and not retain anything you read. Why? Because you can't serve 2 masters. You can't hear 2 masters. Which ever master is master is the voice that you will hear.
You must cleanse yourself from all the voices in your life and learn the voice of God and be obedient to it. That way you can hear God's promises and your future will become inevitable because once you hear what his plan for your life is, then it has to happen! It's guaranteed life and security from death until it happens. It's guaranteed success and money until it happens. His Words are security and will build extreme faith! Faith comes by hearing his Words. Come on saints of God. Cleanse yourself and get into a position to hear him. His Words carry a promise of life for you in this life and the life to come.
