9/10 Ways to Know what is in your Heart when Hearing God

The other day, I sat with the Lord and asked Him the Ways He thinks we can get in touch with our Heart.  Here are 10 ways to see what is in your heart:

1.  Learn to catch the inner dialogue, self talk. 

What might be the kind of self-talk we would hear the heart saying?  You can find many ‘heart lies’ this way, things the heart believes – that aren’t true.  Such as …..

2.  Catch when you over-react to a situation. 

Whenever you find yourself in Reaction – versus responding to a situation – it is God’s open window to see what’s in your heart.  Learn to be aware of these occasions for His help with your journey.  What is happening means your heart has as stuck point that is trying to be re-opened.

3.  Change your thinking about Emotions.

 See emotions as messengers, letting you know what your heart is feeling.  When you feel anger —- > “I hear you heart; you are angry.  What are you angry about heart?”  What ever ‘bubles up’ is usually your heart letting you know what it’s upset about.

If you need help with this, check into my other blog on ‘Emotions’ –

4.  Your main job is to mediate between your heart and the Lord Jesus’ way of healing it.

Only God can truly heal your heart, so ask Him to do the work that needs to be done! Jeremiah17:9-10.

5.  Catch your self-talk.

Learn to talk with the heart and hear what’s going on deep inside.  Remember, the heart is hidden but God knows what is there.

6.  Look for any body symptoms that might be generated by Heart attitudes. 

Often the tension, annoyances or stress of your day is found in your muscles but really started with your Heart expectation that this was going to be a great day.  Why are catching your expectations so important?

7.  Watch what pushes your buttons! 

 What causes you to over-react to certain people, situations or comments?  Often this is an issue with your Heart that has not been resolved.  Being angry at your female boss might reflect anger at your female teachers, female peers or even at your Mother – who just happens to be a controlling female as well.

8. One of the best ways is to ask the Lord to show you what is in your Heart.

9. Many times others can see our Heart clearer than we can. 

Ask a very trust person to share this journey with you.  After prayer, have the other person share the good things they see in you, in your heart.  This builds the trust needed for the next step – what are some of the things I need to work on with the Lord and my Heart?

10. As strange as it sounds, you can actually learn to talk with your Heart and hear it’s messages to you. 

This does take practice and a non-judgemental attitude to what your Heart shares with you.

Can you add any others to this list? Every one of these would make a great post by it

 In our next post we will discuss the fact that your emotions can be helpers for you to see what is going on in your Heart.  In fact I dare to say that your emotions are the messengers from your Heart so we need to learn to listen to them!
