Listening for the Voice of God

Listening for the Voice of God
Spiritual Formation Institute Seminar 2008/3

Speaker: Dr. Voon Choon Khing
Date: 2.00pm- 9.30pm, Saturday 27 September 2008
Place: Berea, Holy Light Church, Johor Bahru

Synopsis:
Session 1 Listening for the Voice of God: From the Past
God made known His ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel (Psalms 103:7). Our God is the God of history. Likewise, our Lord would make known to His ways to those who would learn to listen. We can listen for the Voice of God from our past, and learn to discern God’s ways with us from our personal history. Examining our life stories is one valid and essential way to learn to listen for God’s Voice. This is to glean wisdom from hindsight.

Session 2 Listening for the Voice of God: In the Present
The past is history. Our present is God’s gift. Rarely does God speak with us in supernatural ecstatic ways. The challenge is for us to listen for God’s Voice in the here and now. It is in Christ that we live, move and have our being (Acts 17:28). Therefore, as God’s beloved children, hearing God’s Voice daily is a natural experience. How do we live in God’s Presence by engaging the Holy Spirit in the ordinariness of our daily routines?

Session 3 Listening for the Voice of God: For the Future
The future is mystery, yet our future is determined by the interplay between God’s Will and our human wills. When we have gleaned the wisdom of the past, and astute in listening for God’s Voice in the presence, we can then choose to fulfill God’s call on our lives in the future to the praise and glory of God’s Name. We too can be like King David to have fulfilled God’s purpose in our generation at the end of life on earth (Acts 13:36).
