July 29, 2018 The Dream Series Step IX: Listen Rev. Dr. Derrick B. Wells

Listen:

  1. To make an effort to hear something. It means to concentrate, to give attention to or tune in

How Do We Listen To God?

  1. Prayer – Communion with God
  2. Meditation – Conscious thoughts on the aspects of God
  3. The Silence – A receptive state of mind one enters into so the soul can listen to the “still small voice” within

Listen:

Be still and hear God’s intuitive guidance as it leads you through all the inner and outer actions need to demonstrate your dream

There is no wrong dream; only the right person for the right dream

When I accept the dream I must also accept the labor

MY DREAM – MY WORK

Stop playing with it and claim, work, and own that which is already mine

Listening is a skill to be cultivated!

Whenever I allow my listening to be poor my communication is broken

To avoid breakdowns in my communication LISTEN

Stop allowing myself to be distracted by external sounds and sights when I should be listening

How I listen to people tends to be the same way I listen to God. This must stop!

The way I do anything is the way I do everything

Listening is a skill both externally and spiritually

I will develop my skill of spiritual listening

A skill is a behavior that can be repeated whenever needed

A skill does not require luck, it requires dedication and serious work

Stay focused with God

What am I concentrating on or paying attention to?

Concentrate on what I want to manifest

The choice on what I concentrate on always rests with me

Skills to Develop:

  1. Silence the noise: noise is any distraction that prevents me from realizing my dreams. Do not allow myself to become condition to the noise. Noise has the ability to interfere with thoughts
  2. Focus my attention: It is not enough to quiet the noise I must replace the noise with something. Use the law of my mind, go into prayer and meditation bringing forth the Silence

There can be nothing missing for the Universe (GOD) is always full

Prayer takes my attention away from the noise and points me back to God

By concentrating on God my good starts to flow and my cup runs over Jeremiah 29:11 (NRSV) :For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord .. to give you a future with hope”

Whatever my “seeming” need is God has already filled it up

Prayer opens my conscious up so I may be receptive to God

Have I allowed myself to say “I want” yet I fail to receive what God has blessed me with?

Do not take external limitations into prayer

My flow works what my mind tells it. OPEN MY MIND AND BE

When I speak, think, and feel through limitations is what I will be filled up with

God works as my consciousness directs

My prayer is intended to turn me back to the Truth

Stop looking outside of myself for my truth

Do not look for someone to provide for me the answer to a question they know nothing about Jeremiah 33:3 (NRSV) “call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known”

By listening I can stay in the Mind of the Creative Force

God has already provided for me USE IT

Flush away that which doesn’t serve my purpose

Meditate on the Aspects of God: Life, Love, Wisdom, Power, and Substances

  1. Life is the Idea in Divine mind of activity, health, wholeness, and the stream of energy. Meditate on the healing power of God
  2. Love is the Idea in Divine mind of universal oneness. Love my good BEFORE it manifests into reality
  3. Wisdom is the Idea in Divine mind of orderly knowledge manifested as intelligence, intuition, inspiration, and clarity (lack of clarity can produce more noise)
  4. Power is the Idea in Divine mind of authority and dominion. I have all the power, authority, and dominion in my life to achieve my dreams. I just have to stand up and do (authority if allowed is 20% given and 80% taken)
  5. Substance is the Idea in Divine mind of perfect form. Always use abundance with substance for God is both

I will develop my skill of quieting any and all noise. God is in the whispering of the still small voice thereby I will hear exactly what I need to move from where I’m at to where I deserve to be. Luke 11:28 (NRSV) “But he said, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!'”
