SylviaBeloved, listen with your spirit to God's Word in 1 Samuel 3:10. "The LORD
came and stood there, calling as at the other times, 'Samuel! Samuel!' Then Samuel said, 'Speak, for your servant is listening.' "

I bless you with awakening your spirit to the voice of God and tuning your spiritual ears to him. I bless you with being fully engaged with listening as a choice you make, a training you practice, and a process. Ask God to cleanse and alert your ears so that what you hear will not be dull or defiled.

I bless you with quieting your soul so you can hear more clearly with your spirit. Your listening is very active, not passive. God speaks to you in many creative ways, and I bless you with setting your spiritual hearing to his frequency to hear his voice. I bless you with hearing the Father of your spirit in his Word, by faith, through revelation, by his Holy Spirit, through others, through his creation, etc. The heavens declare the glory of the Lord, and I bless you with hearing their declaration.

I bless you with willingness to hear every word from God. I bless you with focused spiritual attention on God, so that you are tuned to him. I bless you with a hearing spirit and an understanding heart to discern between good and evil, but also to discern between good, better, and best.

From the very beginning Israel was called to listen. "Hear, O Israel, the LORD your God is One." I bless you with listening with commitment to obey. God has called every generation to hear him and act on what he says. Jesus in Revelation said, "He who has ears, let him hear." God will honor your spirit's commitment to hear and to respond obediently and positively to the Holy Spirit.

I bless you with worship that is an echo of the sounds of heaven. I bless you with resonating in the same key, with keeping time with heavenly rhythm. There are new songs to sing to the Lord, songs of deliverance and victory, sweet love songs from your Bridegroom, songs of comfort, joy, of praise, and songs the Lord sings over you. I bless you with open heavens to hear and respond. Hearing leads you into deeper and sweeter intimacy and more responsiveness to him.

I bless you with a warrior's keen hearing in your spirit. In times of spiritual battle, it is crucial to hear your commander. I bless you with active and accurate listening for deliverance, for freedom, for victory, for direction. I bless you to possess your birthright, to understand your legitimacy, to receive affirmation, to know your Father's time, timing, and seasons. I bless you with satisfaction of your longing to hear him say, "This is my child in whom I am well pleased."

I bless you in the name of the Father of your spirit (Hebrews 12:9).
