Hearing God prepared me to be open and receptive to Henry Blackaby's "Experiencing God." It is a book which explores how I can know God's voice and sets out some powerful principles about how God speaks/5. The book is peppered with stories of people who have “encountered” God, or “heard” God’s voice, and Willard uses these stories as data from which to build a theology of “hearing God.” I am not sure that is a wise or sound way of going about the task of theology. Hearing God is a book that I recommend to anyone who tired of all the superstition and fake spirituality, but longs for a constant, continual relationship with the Lover of our soul, Jesus Christ. flag 1 like Like see review/5. How To Hear The Voice of GodPut yourself in a position to hear God’s voice. Habakkuk says, “ I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me ” How do we do this? By waking up in the morning with the sole objective of hearing God’s voice Listen consistently. Notice the words “morning by morning” in Isaiah Never listen to a voice that is contrary to the Word (2 Peter ) Obey Him in the little things that you already know. Luke says, “ He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much Keep a soft heart. Hebrews says, “ Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart (more items).
Hearing God is but one dimension of a richly interactive relationship, and obtaining guidance is but one facet of hearing God. This updated classic, originally published in as In Search of Guidance, provides rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom.

The primary way that a Christian hears God’s voice is through reading and studying Scripture and then obeying and applying what the Scripture says. Hearing God is a classic. This is the third copy of the book I have owned (one given and two purchased) over the years but the first time I am actually reading it. I like that Willard starts by moving the pressure down a notch.
“Hearing God is a book for our times. If they had asked me to subtitle it, I might have even suggested Hearing God for Dummies. And I mean that in the best way possible. I’ve always been a fan of demystifying all things God and religion—and that is exactly what my friend Nathan has done with this effort. He completely hits the mark. "The beauty of this book is the way it exposes the reader to hearing God through obedience to him You may need, as I did, to read and read it again, but it is well worth it." "In this volume he lays out a needed and balanced view of a God who not only listens to his children but speaks to them as well/5(7). A new appendix highlights key questions related to hearing God and helps you find the answers in the text, as does the Scripture index. Also added to this edition are six lectio divina exercises placed throughout the book that guide you into the experience of hearing God. Despite the title, I would consider this book much more about walking with God daily rather than simply teaching us to hear God’s voice. Yet as you will discover in your reading, living a life of walking in the Spirit is a huge component of hearing God/5.
