I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
Yesterday we learnt that the "Listening Room" is something that takes place in our inner man. It is the spiritual side of us. We can hear God speak to us all the time.
But when he speaks to us, he isn't speaking from heaven or somewhere far away. He lives in your spirit. Back in the day. God used to live in a temple. However, after Jesus arrived, he declared that God would make his temple your spiritual side. Many people refer to having Jesus in your 'heart,' which really means he is in your spiritual side. Your inner self.

Have confidence that as we make this first step to listen, God will respond. See Rev 3:20
Start with a simple prayer See what to pray here 1 Sam 3:10
Wait quietly for his promptings. Don't rush. As he beings to reveal things to you, it is best to write them down.
After you receive something, linger for a little longer as God may be continuing to speak.
