Start asking that He would give you the tongue of a disciple. Ask Him for the ability to memorize Scripture. How many of the things we lack, if we go to Him in dependence daily to receive from Him.
6 things the keep in mind regarding a disciple’s ear and tongue
1. The voice of the Spirit is the Word of God
2. MAT 11:29 Jesus is the Teacher, we are the student
3. the Holy Spirit was given at the moment of salvation to teach us the Word of God JOH 14:26 1JO 2:27
4. the hearing is responding to God’s Word in faith, believing it, believing He wrote it with you in mind ROM 10:17 Increase in faith by hearing more of the Word
5. Eph 4:20-21 this is how Christ speaks directly to us
6. Col 2:7 this is how we are built up in the ways of Christ
What is the test today? “Today if you hear His voice…” The test is faith! MAT 6:33-34 He will be faithful in what He said, He will be faithful to me. Faith involves testing, and He will give us what we can never plan for. But you can prepare for it, by learning today. Let today’s experience be your spiritual workout. GEN 22:1-2 1KI 17:13 2KI 4:3
