There are four simple keys that can be found in Habakkuk
2:1-2, which unlocks the treasure of hearing God’s voice. Using these four keys together allows the hearer of God’s voice on a daily basis. Being intentional about hearing God’s voice is a critical step.
KEY 1: SPONTANEOUS THOUGHTS
In Habakkuk 2:2, Habakkuk knew the sound of God speaking to him. Elijah also described this as a still, small voice (1 Kgs. 19;12). Do you know that we can listen to God in an inner audible voice? God does speak that way to us at times. However, we find that God’s voice usually comes as spontaneous thoughts or flowing thoughts. Have you ever experienced driving down the road, and had a thought come to you to pray for a certain person or situation? Don’t you think it’s God’s voice telling you to pray? It’s not really an audible voice most of the time. Instead, it’s a spontaneous thought. It’s God who is already giving you a prophetic discernment to pray for this person.
Usually, humans are able to experience spirit-level communication as spontaneous thoughts, impressions, and visions, and Scripture communicates in many ways. For example, one definition of paga, a Hebrew word for intercession, is “a chance encounter or an accidental intersecting.” When God gives us a burden for specific people, He does it through paga, a chance-encounter thought “accidentally” coming into our minds. The inexperienced prophet might consider it a chance encounter, spontaneous or owing thoughts. Even Satan can plant deception in our minds through spontaneous thoughts. Paul tells us to take captive of those thoughts (2 Cor. 10:5).
Have you encountered evil thoughts coming to you in the middle of prayer and worship times? There are different things going on in our minds. Humans are usually responsible for analytical thoughts, spontaneous good thoughts come from the Holy Spirit, and spontaneous evil thoughts come from evil spirits.
God’s thoughts line up with Scripture and His different names and roles: Comforter, Counselor, Teacher, Giver of Life, Healer, and Deliverer. God’s thoughts edify, exhort, and comfort you. They are pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy, good fruits, and are unwavering (Jas. 3:17). On the other hand, Satan’s thoughts line up with his different names as well: Accuser, adversary, thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Satan’s thoughts condemn, bring despair, rejection, fear, doubt, unbelief, and misery all together. Satan’s thoughts also bring jealousy and selfish ambition (Jas. 3:14-15).
