We wanted to leave you with a portion from the What Happens When Women Say Yes To God Interactive Workbook. [Please note the study guide is totally optional!]
Learning to recognize God’s voice is something we can practice and become better at. If we find it difficult at first to notice or respond to God’s promptings in the moment, we can still learn something even from our missed opportunities to say yes to God. One way to do this is by practicing a review of the day with God. It is a way of praying that helps us to get better at recognizing His activity in our lives.
Here are a few ideas to help you better recognize God’s activity in your life:
• Find a quiet place. Choose a quiet comfortable place where you won’t be interrupted or distracted.
• Invite God to guide you. As you begin to review your day in God’s presence, ask Him to guide and teach you. You may want to pray: God, I want to see You. God, I want to know You. Teach me how to see You and hear You so I can know You better and follow where You lead me.
• Begin with gratitude. Look back on your day–morning, afternoon and evening–and notice all the ways in which you experienced God’s goodness.
• Look for leadings. Now go through your day again–morning, afternoon, and evening. You may want to imagine that Jesus is sitting with you while you watch a video replay of your day. When something you see catches your attention, push the “pause” button. Then ask Jesus for His guidance and insight.
-Lord, was this a prompting from You?
-Is this how You wanted me to respond in this situation or to this person?
-Is there anything You want me to do differently next time?
Allow yourself a few moments to listen for the Lord’s response. Journal any insights or guidance you receive.
