Jeremiah 33: 3 God’s Telephone Number
A pillar in the principle of hearing from god and following him day by day is that you must frequently come back to ask and make sure that what you are doing is exactly what I want you to do. This is a principle of the Spirit.
This is what prayer is all about. It is not merely some kind of religious ritual, but a living
Every great man of God, from Moses to Jesus, had to retreat alone to his mountain for a while in order to have time to meditate, pray, and commune with God.
BUT IT DOES !
why are you standing still?
You’ve gotta move forward with the Spirit of God. You’ve gotta move forward listening to His voice and following His plan, because He’s the One Who knows where He’s going. He’s the One Who knows what needs to be done. So as you follow along faithfully‚ as you listen, as you cry out to Him, as you do what He says to do, you will be accomplishing His will and you will be swept along in His wake and you’ll move faster and faster toward the goal that He has for you—the goal of His will‚ of reaching the world, of preparing all things so that He can return one day to rescue you all and rapture you into His arms!
With many people, prayer is a one-way conversation, and they do all the talking. They pray, ―Hear, Lord, Thy servant speaketh,‖ instead of like Samuel, the child prophet, who at
five years of age said, ―Speak, Lord, Thy servant heareth.

Prayer is not just getting down on your knees and speaking your piece, but letting God speak His, too. This is why each of us is supposed to know the Lord personally and be filled with the Holy Spirit and therefore be led by the Spirit individually, so that we can personally seek the Lord and find the answers for ourselves that we need for our own individual cases.
Each of us needs to learn to follow God and to hear from Him fresh every day. You can’t just get inspired once and let that do for the rest of your life. We all need to hear from God.
It doesn’t have to be out loud; it doesn’t have to be with an audible voice. It can just be in that ―still small voice‖10 that you feel inside of you—sometimes not even words, just an impression that you have. God doesn’t have to communicate in words; He can just give you a feeling or a picture or an idea.
His Spirit is like a broadcasting station, broadcasting all the time; you just have to learn how to tune in. If you’ve got an open channel and tune in, the Lord will fill you—your mind, your heart, your ears, your eyes. Jesus can speak anytime, anywhere, if you believe. And that thing you see or hear with the eyes or ears of your spirit will come from the Lord—and it will be such a comfort to you. Heavenly Communication.
Prayer is like breathing—just breathing the Holy Spirit all the time, being in constant communication with the Lord.

He says, ―Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not to thine own
understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. This is one of the most wonderful verses in the Bible to hang on to, especially when making decisions. We don’t have to know all the answers, we don’t have to lean on our own ideas or wisdom; we just have to lean on the Lord and His leadings. Whatever you have to do, pray about it. The Lord is always right there with you. He says, I’ll never leave thee nor forsake thee. He’s always there. So it’s never God who’s not there; it’s us who are sometimes not always there, when we run off someplace else and leave Him behind when we forget to pray.
He’s promised that if you acknowledge Him, He will direct your paths. He says, You shall hear a voice behind you, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it. So ask the Lord about everything before you do it. Make sure it’s what He wants you to do.
