“Be still and know that I am Elohim…”

Psalm 46:10, Be still and know. The word still means “to sink down, relax, withdraw, be quiet, let go.” This concept of how to hear the voice of Elohim reminds us of Elijah’s cave experience (1 Kgs 19:12). The voice of Elohim was still and small (1 Kgs 19:11–12). It was not in the rushing wind or the earthquake. The prophet heard Elohim only when things got quiet, so that he could he hear the voice of Elohim. 

There is a great lesson in this when we’re trying to hear from YHVH. Namely this. Turn off the phone, television and computer when you want to hear from Elohim. In other words, get a way and alone from it all. This is because the cares of this life are like weeds that choke out the Word of Elohim as Yeshua taught in the Parable of the Sower (Matt 13:22). Get alone (away from other people) when you want to connect with Elohim (Luke 18:13–14). Vacate to some quiet and secluded place outdoors as Yeshua did numerous times (Matt 4:1; 14:23; 26:36; Mark 1:35; 6:46; Luke 5:16; 6:12; John 6:15), where you’ll shielded from outside distractions. 

How many times have we heard of people receiving divine revelation while in the shower, early in the morning hours or at some other time when they’re relaxed, alone and quiet? Perhaps this has happened to you. This is because our Father in heaven says, “Be still and know that I am Elohim.”


How to Hear the Voice of YHVH

John 10:3, Hear his voice. 

YHVH Wants to Commune With His People

From the beginning in the Garden of Eden, YHVH wanted to have a personal, communicative relationship with men.

And they heard the voice [Heb. kol] of the YHVH Elohim walking in the garden in the cool [Heb. ruach] of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence [Heb. panyim] of the YHVH Elohim amongst the trees of the garden. And the YHVH Elohim called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. (Gen 3:8–10)

You Can Hear the Voice of YHVH

Yeshua tells us that we can hear his voice.

To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. … My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:3–5, 27)

Throughout the Bible, there are many examples of YHVH’s servants hearing his voice. Here are a few examples from the book of Acts of people hearing YHVH.

Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. (Acts 8:29)

While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. (Acts 10:19)

And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man’s house. (Acts 11:12)

And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem. (Acts 21:4)

It’s All About Spiritual Activation
