Key 4: JOURNAL YOUR PRAYERS AND ANSWERED PRAYERS
Being intentional about hearing from God includes activities that allow you to practice communicating and connecting with the Lord. It’s about being more aware and sensitive to the Lord.
Journaling or writing your prayers and God’s answers brings great freedom in hearing God’s voice. God told Habakkuk to record his vision (Hab. 2:2). It’s a godly practice to do this. It’s not an isolated command. The Bible shows us many examples of individuals’ prayers and God’s replies written down (e.g. Psalms,
many prophetic books, and Revelation).
Journaling is a two-way process. This practice is a powerful catalyst for clearly discerning God’s inner, spontaneous flow. As you journal, you are also able to write in faith for long periods of time, simply believing it is God. You are reminded of what you are believing God for. As humans, we are easily distracted, and we tend to forget.When we believe God, we are also tested. Testing can put doubts in the picture, and doubts blocks divine communication. Do not try to test while you are trying to receive from God (Heb. 11:6). When you are journaling, you are receiving in faith. You know that when the flow has ended, you can test and examine it carefully, making sure it lines up with Scripture (1 Th. 5:21).
