Today I received a question from a reader who has been on my list for a number of years.  It was quickened to me and so I turned it into a teaching.


 Hi Sandy

Just as I began to read the word today, my immediate thought was, "Lord HOW does she hear your words"....I would ask you Sandy if you can help in this area. Although I have walked with the Lord for many, many years, and am gifted in the prophetic ministry, I have never had an open vision, or visions for that matter, only had one prophetic dream.  My gifting is through "a thought, sometimes getting a picture, and then by faith speaking out and the flow comes, and the people are blessed.  However I know in this season that the Lord wants to give me so much more but I seem to be really blocked from being able to breakthrough.  If you can give any advice through your years of being God's scribe, I'd appreciate it.     



I have been listening to the Lord and journaling since 1984.  After all these years, He continually reinforces that I have to use what He gives me and then He gives me more.  It is being accountable to steward and then expecting to receive more increase as I use it. I have found that if I dont steward what He gives me, then the well dries up and sometimes it dries up really fast.  Below is what the Lord has taught me in how to dig a spiritual well of hearing Him and then maintaining it.


 Mark 4:24-25  NKJV

Then He said to them, "Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.  For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him."   





1.  Journal what you hear, see, perceive, search for, question.



I had a dream about someone trying to understand a mystery.  The lady said, “If that's all the notes you keep, you'll never understand it.  He likes lengthy puzzles.” 


Hab 2:2-3  NKJV

Then the LORD answered me and said: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets,  That he may run who reads it.  3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.


CHEW it, ponder it, apply it and then let it feed your spirit with faith and your soul with understanding.  Submit to Him in places that need to change and mature.  


2.  Add scriptures.


 Do word searches, cross references, and study the scriptures as they relate to what you see and hear 


2 Tim 2:15 AMP

Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing {rightly handling and skillfully teaching} the Word of Truth.  


3.   If you are being mentored (like on my email list), steward what you are given.


 If something confirms where you are, take notes and paste it all together so that you have your own journey of how the Lord is weaving it all together to build your faith and hearing. 


Eph 4:15-16 NKJV

may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —  16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. 


4.  Be His witness of what you see and hear. 


 Share what God is speaking to you in a personal way in order to encourage, comfort, help, strengthen, build up someone else.  Giving is the best and easiest way to get your well flowing. 


Prov 11:25 NLT

The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.


John 8:28-29 NKJV

 I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.   


5.  Stay under His glory spout. 


 Where ever you are perceiving that you are experiencing His Presence, being confirmed, encouraged, fed and you are participating.... DON'T LEAVE.  Stick with it and participate however you can participate through the above ideas.  He is building spiritual watering holes and you need to stay because outside is increasing famine. 

Amos 8:11-12 NKJV

"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.  They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it. 


6.  Pray about what you hear and see. 


 Pray it into your life, into your loved ones, your church and into His corporate body.  Find someone who will agree with you in prayer over what you see and hear.


Luke 6:12-13 NKJV

Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray , and continued all night in prayer to God.


Matt 18:19-20 NKJV

"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."   


7.  Throw out all limitations on HOW you want God to speak to you. 


 Isa 45:6-7 KJV

That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.


Rom 8:28 NKJV

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.    


8.  Let your measure of hearing Him be through every detail.


 Ask Him to open the eyes of your understanding to see how they really do relate and what He is saying to you about them.  You will be amazed as you start to see Him in every area of your life, divinely plant even the smallest details into puzzles that make sense to His overall whole.  All that is lacking is the eyes to see it.  Bind spiritual blindness and loose your eyes to see. 


Luke 24:30-33  NLT

As they sat down to eat, he took a small loaf of bread, asked God's blessing on it, broke it, then gave it to them. 31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared!  32 They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts feel strangely warm as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?"


Pray daily for eyes to see, ears to hear and the heart to understand.  


9.  Repent of fellowshipping in the world in places that grieve His Holy Spirit.  


 Carnal TV is a really, really big issue.  Speaking critically about people is another one.  And so is pornography.


James 4:4-5 NKJV

Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain,"The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously"?    

10.  Submit to His uprooting the tares of your soul and washing you.


Allow Him  to clean up the parts of your soul that do not line up with His Word.  Thought, word, deed and motive.  Ask Him for the reward that as you submit to the process, that He will bring you closer to Him and you will hear and see Him more clearly because of it.   




 Every day and every night I ask for and expect to hear Him. 


Matt 7:7-12  NKJV

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek , and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.  9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?  10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?  11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!     


12.  Continually keep your well primed. 


I continually work to keep my spiritual well primed and pumping clear water.   If there is dirty water or the threat of my well drying up, I press in to the Lord through prayer, tongues, worship, fasting and sacrifice until it returns steady and pure.    I ask for prayer.  I break off curses, I ask again for prayer.  I press in.  If I am away from His glory spout and I know where I have found it in the past, I return to that place.  It is a serious and desperate stand I take until I am flowing again.  It is my life time prayer to know Him intimately. 


Above all I try to stay accountable with what He gives me, regardless of whether I like what He gives.  I find in the end that when I swallow it, I have His peace that totally sustains me.


John 4:13-14  NKJV

Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,  but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."


John 6:57-58  NKJV

As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.  This is the bread which came down from heaven — not as your fathers ate the manna , and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever."   



PRAYER:  Lord I pray for whoever has read this teaching.  I know they would not have read it, if they were not hungry to hear You.  I ask that You will honor their hunger, their quest  and their deepest yearnings to hear You more.  Help them pinpoint areas in their life where they can stretch and grow into a bigger portion of hearing ears and seeing eyes.  Grant them hearts to understand.  Grant them a divine thirst for You that wont quit until they have broken through and heard You speak to them to the point of their need, desire and desperation. 


Papa You promised us DAILY BREAD and JESUS IS OUR BREAD OF LIFE. Grant those who are hungry for You, their daily portion in Jesus Name I ask.  Amen.
