“All of life is made up of little decisions – many, many decisions, each and every day. If your life is to be what the Lord wants it to be, if you want to get things right, if you want to be in the center of His will, then you’re going to have to put on your spiritual headset and tune in.

It’s not enough to simply go by your instincts or your gut feelings. It’s not even enough to go by how you did things before, or what you think is the logical way to do them. It’s imperative, vitally important that you get things right, and the only way to do that is to ask the Lord. He’s the only One Who has the answers. He’s the only One Who knows all of the reasons for everything. He’s the only One Who has a bird’s-eye view of your life. He’s the only One Who can see all the hidden factors in the equation.

The secret to hearing from the Lord in prophecy every step of the way, for every decision, for every little thing, is to make it a habit. You’re going to have to will yourself to do it at first and really make a conscious effort. I’m not talking about stopping before everything you do for a big, long prophecy session. I’m talking about on-the-spot direction, quick instruction. I’m talking about being so in tune with the Lord that you’ll always be listening to what He has to say.

Anytime, anywhere, you can get an answer from the Lord. It only takes a minute, and He’ll shoot back the answer you need that moment. you can ask the Lord about everything and He’ll always give you important advice, tips, counsel, or fill you in on amazing details that will make your life so much easier!

It doesn’t need to take a lot of time, just a second, but then you have the peace of knowing you have the Lord’s word on it, that you’re doing the right thing, what He wants you to do. And to top it off, you won’t miss out on a lot of surprises the Lord may have in store for you! The Lord is able to show you so many important things, both big and small, if you’ll ask Him.

You don’t always have to know all of the reasons why, but you can be sure that if you’re following the Lord’s leading and you officially take the time to hear what He has to say, even if it’s just a few words or a couple of sentences, you’ll be doing the right thing. Sometimes the Lord has reasons for asking you to do things that you aren’t aware of–often, in fact. And what you’ve got to realize is that it doesn’t take any longer to say a little prayer and ask the Lord than it does to take the time to reason it out in your mind, and it’s a whole lot more reliable and dependable. It’s that simple.

You’ve got to get in the habit of hearing from the Lord in prophecy about everything, and the first step in making it a habit is ridding yourself of the false notion that it takes so long to hear from the Lord. The truth is that you can have quick, on-the-spot direction all throughout your day, and it needn’t take hours of precious time. The Lord can give you His answers and solutions in a couple of sentences. You’ve just got to make the effort to tune in. You’ve just got to make the effort to ask Him instead of reasoning things out in your own mind.”

“The keys specialize in the impossible, the undoable in the natural. They can change any heart and spirit-and they will work for you, as you claim this change by faith and refuse to give up the fight.”
