245. How to Hear God with Others (spouse... business partner...)

Season #2

At the start of this year my wife and I went on a mini-sabbatical. It was the first time we have been away for some intentional listening and strategic planning for years. Our season has changed. The kids are now (mostly) out of the house.

As we were driving there she mentioned "I'm not sure if I'm excited about doing this with you.... just want you to be aware." Hmmm that could be an ouch. Or it could be something to closely pay attention to. The truth is for a significant part of our 25 years of being married, I have dragged or driven her into what I have felt is 'best' for us. Whether I was right or wrong is irrelevant. My zeal was lacking a bit of wisdom in HOW I went about it. 

The good news is I have learned to listen (and still learning...) to her voice. The other good news is the mini sabbatical was a huge success based on connection and practical outcomes/plan for this year. Even better, I get to lead Heaven in Business WITH my wife and everyone is better for it.

So what about you? In working with others (spouse, boss, leader... ) how do you navigate hearing God together?

This is a session out of the Hearing God course and will also be a hot topic in the soon-to-launch book equipping you to hear and follow the voice of God at work.

Start with some foundational beliefs:

1. Humility or control? 


2. Love or pots & pans?

3. Patience and ‘Hey God What Now?’

What is most important?

Case Study - Volume Test

Reduce volume = miss the warning | blessing | presence

If you turn down their voice you won’t hear them when you really need to.

Now it's your turn!

1.Whose voice have you reduced the volume of?

2.Why is their voice important?

3.What will you do about it?
