(065) For Those who Find it Hard to Hear God’s Voice with Pernille Liland

In church life, there seems to be two groups of people. There’s the group who seem to hear from God easily… God’s speaking about this; God’s speaking about that. It’s like God is speaking every day! Then there’s another group who struggle to hear God’s voice. They heard God speak five years ago and there’s been silence ever since. 

Which group do you fall into? 

If you find it hard to hear God’s voice, this episode is for you. We have the perfect guest to learn from! Ps. Pernille Liland is a prophet, teacher, author and business leader from Denmark who has many years of ministry experience and prophetic expertise.

On the show, Pernille distinguishes between two types of experiences – the first – a distinct voice that seems to interrupt your thoughts and comes on God’s initiativeand second – the experience that seems to occur on our initiative when we create space to connect with God through the imagination. During the process, we take time to wait on the Spirit and develop our spiritual senses, including hearing, smell, taste, touch and feeling. We become aware of our thoughts, meditate on Jesus and allow the Spirit to take it from there. 

Some may have questions about using our imagination in the process of hearing God, but all this means is that we are engaging the Spirit in the realm of our minds. Scripture itself alludes to this process (eg. Daniel 7:1,15). Where our spirit meets with God, revelation comes.

Pernille takes time to break down the experience simply and clearly, making it accessible to everyone. She reiterates how personal God is and how the gift of the Spirit is for everyone, not just a prophet, priest, pastor or pope. We can all hear the Spirit for ourselves!
