Are You Listening?


The Preceding Word of God – TD Jakes
  • The question isn’t is God speaking, it’s are you listening? Don’t doubt that I’m talking, I’m doubting that you’re listening
  • There are people with a good heart but so distracted with noise and lose sight of what they heard
  • God doesn’t just give permission, He gives foundation
  • If God is going to restore your soul, you have to be still – The devil is trying to keep you busy so you can’t even get a word from Him
  • The enemy can’t stop Him from talking, but he can stop you from listening
  • Sometimes the enemy will put people in your life to break your focus
  • I need to hear from God
  • There’s a lot of things God wants to talk to you about, but you cannot bear them right now
  • Wouldn’t you want to remove everything you can to hear what God is bearing than not hear the word of God?
  • Obedience is better than sacrifice
  • There’s no reason to ask God what His will is if you’re going to ask Him a bunch of questions – He is not big on details, He just tells you what the end is going to be
  • Stop with all your questions and say “YES”
  • God is going to give you the cliff notes of your destiny because the rest doesn’t matter
  • When you get through all that you’re going through you will get to that promise
  • I don’t know when or how, or who it’s going to come through or how long I have to cry – But it’s going to happen
  • If you got His word, it shall come to pass
  • Just because you know it, doesn’t mean you remember it when you need it (when you’re in a storm)
  • The Holy Spirit is a tattle tale
  • If you really think God is going to do it you better lift your head with expectation
  • The enemy is after your peace and joy and trying to destroy your promise
  • God shows what’s mine before it’s mine
  • God will give you the desires of your heart does not mean He’s going to give you what you want – He’s not Santa clause. He will show you things to come so you won’t go after things that are things
  • You only want to go after what’s yours
  • A vision is a preview of a coming attraction
  • How do you hear from God? A lot of people that said the Lord said that… He didn’t say that
  • Don’t be discouraged when people don’t get it
  • Why do people get to be crazy but preachers don’t? We all came from the same place. Cause I’m a doctor I can’t get the flu
  • Everyone will talk about the what of it but until you understand the why of it you will never get to the next level
  • If you want to change lives, you can’t gasp at the “what” you have to dig for the “why”
  • What did you not get that you’re still wrestling with today?
  • Why is nothing never enough for you?
  • Why do you keep needing this reinforcement? “You didn’t say I love you today” What cracked you so bad to make a hole that everything I keep pouring into you keeps leaking out?
  • You can’t fix the what until you understand the why
  • As long as you keep worrying about your name and not God’s you’ll never get to the next level
  • The spirit is trying to heal you so you don’t need people like you do, validation like you do…
  • You do more for your flesh than you do for your spirit
  • You are more focused on your outside than you are on your inside
  • God has to get in your spirit before He can change your life
  • God has to get in your spirit so He can heal you
