Lately, we have been looking at some of the different ways that show how we can hear from God. If you haven’t read these posts yet, check them out here part 1 and part 2. Today, let’s look at something with a new and fresh perspective.
I’d like to know how many times have you felt impressed to do something and it was such a strong vibe that somehow you knew, that you knew, you needed to do it. I like to call those ‘vibes’ the portals of God. I firmly believe when those moments come, the moments are sacred communication straight from the heart of God. So, if He is communicating with us this way, that shows us one distinct way how to hear from God – pay attention to those vibes. These vibes, or knowings, or portals are designed to lead you into a new space where you will experience more freedom than ever before. These moments may not seem like a big deal, but let me reassure you.that.they.are.
Take my life, for example. I have had many portals where God had tried to get my attention to tell me to change some of my eating habits. One of my best friends found out about “The Hallelujah Diet.” It is a vegan diet that consists of 75 – 80% raw food. Now, while I know that this way of eating is not for everyone, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was inviting me to eat this way. But, it meant that I had to eliminate animal products and all the sweet junk food I liked to consume.
“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord.
I was actually filled with great joy to walk in this lifestyle change, which was a MAJOR miracle. There was great grace on my life to make the necessary changes. However, the time came when I made a choice one day to eat a fast food meal and lots of candy. Then, before I really realized what happened, I was three days into a fast food frenzy, and I physically felt horrible. Then…the three days turned into…three months which eventually turned into…three years. NO KIDDING!!
I wish we could all realize when those portals open, God is pouring out his grace to help us enter into this new way of thinking and being. If we will let go and yield to His promptings, there is nothing but goodness, mercy and power available to us that will enable us to walk in whatever it is that He is asking us to do. And the most important thing to note is that portals do not stay open forever. They have a limited time frame.
So, it is my prayer that as you sit in your Father’s presence today so you can BeLoved Completely, ask Him to search your heart. Are you sensing a strong vibe that might be His Spirit asking you to step into a new area? Do you know that you know He is asking you to do something different? If so, ask Him if there is a portal open where His grace flows freely to enable you to make a change. And remember that it won’t be your own strength that will bring the change, but only His amazing grace. His grace will enable you to move those mountains of opposition by His Spirit!

You are not alone in this journey.
