Live Within Listen Within Ministries was founded in 2009 to train and mentor Christians into developing a lifestyle of hearing God’s voice through our class titled “Can Someone Help Me Hear, Please!”.
Classes have been held at the Assembly of Saints House of Prayer in Jacksonville, FL and Promises of God Christian Center in Trenton, NJ in 2009 and 2010; and Burlington Center Mall Ministry in Burlington, NJ in 2013.
The basis for the Ministry’s name is taken from Romans, chapter 7 (NIV) where Paul speaks to the struggle that occurs between the flesh and the Spirit.
“For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.” (v 22, 23)
This same struggle, while subtle, is applicable to discerning the voice of God where we are challenged in whose voice we are hearing – God, the enemy, or the natural side of me.
The Christian’s ability to discern His voice becomes that much easier as he/she obeys the commandments spoken by Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:16 and 24.
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”(v 16) Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its desires and passions.” (v 24)
Hence, the Ministry’s name depicts a way of life where the Christian develops the possibility of unbroken fellowship with the Holy Spirit. The information shared allows him/her to be mindful of His indwelling presence and attentive to his/her inner man where He is discerned. And as this lifestyle continues to be developed over time, the distinction between the flesh, the enemy, and the Holy Spirit is greatly increased.
Let the spiritual guidance of Jesus Christ help you live a more meaningful life.
