A Recent Daily Word Through Dale Cresap (Note: God Is Speaking)

Have you ever been caught in the middle of a dispute between other people? Does this make you feel uncomfortable and awkward, a situation you are eager to avoid and glad to escape from? Do you think you have enough trouble with disputes that you are a party to without getting involved in others? Yet it is as a disinterested party that you are in a position to minister. You can encourage both sides to do what is right to resolve it, and be objective where those who are involved cannot. I said that the peacemakers were blessed and that they were my children. You are only in a position to perform this ministry as you are willing to bring the light of peace into the darkness of strife.

Jesus Promised, "My Sheep Hear My Voice..." (Jn. 10:26,27)

"For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice…" (Ps. 95:7)

"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand." (John 10:26,27).

"But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep". (Jn. 10:26)

In the above passages, the Bible makes it clear that if we are His sheep, we hear His voice. Dale’s journaling demonstrates that Jesus was speaking the truth, and not lying.

I personally was not able to recognize God’s voice within me for my first 10 years as a Christian, because I had not defined God’s voice as “the spontaneous thoughts which light upon my mind.” A simple definition, but nevertheless, not a definition that I had ever heard or come to grips with. So now, I can hear God’s voice every day by simply doing the following four steps below, which we teach in our course “4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice.”

The four keys to hearing God’s voice are:

  • Spontaneity
  • Stillness
  • Vision
  • Journaling

Key # 1 – Recognize God's voice as spontaneous thoughts which light upon your mind.

Key # 2 - Quiet your mind so you can hear God's voice - easiest way is by doing key #3.

Key # 3 - Look for vision as you pray - see yourself together with Jesus in a comfortable Gospel setting.

Key # 4 - Write down the flow of thoughts and pictures that come to you.

Remember: “Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, tuning to spontaneity, and writing!”

Use all four keys as you pray and you will easily hear God's voice. To help you when you picture yourself together with Jesus, see yourself as an eight-year-old child. (Jesus did say that if we want to come to Him, we must come as a child.) This helps us sidestep any adult blocks which would hinder us from easily hearing His voice.


Make sure you are sharing your two-way journaling with your 2 or 3 spiritual advisors, asking them if their hearts bear witness that the journaling is from God.

  • Don't paraphrase your journaling to them, but instead give it to them word for word as God gave it to you. Your paraphrase is not as good as His first rendition.
  • You are not asking them what they think, but does their heart bear witness.
  • Their confirmation raises your level of faith so you continue on in hearing God's voice, for if doubt overcomes you, you cannot hear (Heb. 11:6).

If you posture your heart properly, the flow within will certainly be the Holy Spirit!

John 7:37-39 tells us that we can sense a flow within us which is the Holy Spirit. It also lays out the prerequisites for positioning our hearts properly to ensure that this flow is coming from God and not self or a demon. The posture is clearly stated:

Biblical Statement (Jn. 7:37-39)   

Key Confession

If anyone is thirsty

Lord, I am thirsty for Your voice.

Let him come to Me

Lord, I fix my heart upon You.

And drink

I tune to flow, drinking in Your words.

He who believes in Me

I believe the flow within me is You!

The promised result is that we connect with the Holy Spirit! “From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water, but this He spoke of the Spirit.”
