The voice of the Lord is coming to you in the garden by Lance Wallnau

The garden was a place where God walked and talked with Adam. In Eden, God set Adam as the gardener over this enclosed paradise. Adam and Eve were commissioned by God to expand the boundaries of paradise and were told to subdue and have dominion over all things.

Your life is like the Garden in which God placed Adam and Eve. God has put you in charge of it and wants you to expand your territory. Jesus described it as “more fruit” and “much fruit.” (John 15:8). Over these next few days, watch for God's visitation in your garden as he inspects, expands, and gives strategies to increase your fruitfulness.

More so than presence, it was God's VOICE which Adam heard that alerted him to God walking in the garden. God wants to speak to you about what to stop and what to start. What to grow and what to prune for your expansion in 2022.

Kim Clement taught me something I will never forget about hearing God’s voice. Frequently, between 1 and 3 in the afternoon, Kim would feel summoned to meet with God’s voice in the garden. We would be having a grand time, but then he would suddenly grow silent, no longer listening to the conversation happening on earth. The garden was beckoning him. Then during our evening meetings, he demonstrated the uncanny power of a word of knowledge from the Lord. I perceived that his afternoons in the garden with the Lord’s voice opened his ear for the evening demonstrations.

One evening, while teaching on how to hear God's voice, Kim explained that if you want to train your ear to hear God’s voice, you don’t start by seeking impressive words of knowledge on presidential elections or Super Bowl scores. You start by hearing God tell you to do something so unselfish it has to be Him.

Kim said he started to hear God speak to him during offerings. He told us, “If God can trust you with earthly currency, He can trust you with the currency of Heaven, His voice and gifts of the Spirit.”

I noticed when Kim sowed, it was always into the soil where he sensed the anointing. I wondered how this all worked, and it all came together for me when I heard Kim teach about sowing into the Spirit. I received three principles from that teaching that have enriched my life in many ways, and I want to share them with you:

Principle 1: Sow To The Spirit

“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” (Gal 6:7)

This verse is about SOWING TO THE SPIRIT, not sowing to a minister, a conference expense, or even missionary needs. No doubt there is a place for that type of giving, but here Paul speaks of something different. Once I saw this, I started sowing to the Spirit and getting immediate results.

Principle 2: Sow To Revelation

The verse right before this sentence is the key to knowing where and when to sow “to the Spirit.”

“Let him that is taught the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.”

Notice the words taught and teacheth. People miss this. The primary thing you sow into isn’t miracles or manifestations or moving mission projects, they have their place, but Paul says to sow into - REVELATION! This is huge.

Paul is saying, “Hey! Pay attention to the “spirit of revelation.” When someone is teaching under the anointing, there is a “quickening” effect. Your spiritual eyes and ears will be opened! A flood of “ah-ha’s” will cascade from your head to your heart. You’ll want to take notes or buy the message BECAUSE the subject seems to open up to you.

Principle 3: Sow To Connect

To hear God's voice in the garden, you must learn how to communicate.

“Let him that is taught the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.”

The word “communicate” here isn’t referring to speech. The Greek word koinonia (koy-no-nee-uh) means to partner with and contribute. It’s the same idea as “sow to the Spirit.” Paul says the one who receives revelation should communicate with the teacher. When you sow “to him that teaches,” you are sowing into the spirit of revelation operating by the Holy Spirit - hence sowing to the Spirit!

The offering connects you to the revelation that, in turn, keeps talking to you after the meeting ends. The subject stays open and expands in the garden. You move from 30 to 60 to 100 fold in your grasp of the teaching as God's Spirit teaches more! Paul says that you will REAP more revelation when you do this and sow into anointed teaching. God will keep on talking to you through that Word long after you leave the meeting.

Kim also taught me that I carry a gift, an anointing that activates the spirit of revelation in others. People get around me, and they feel activated in their calling. They have new confidence in what they are hearing. For some reason, people feel “authorized” to do something. New ventures begin. Business and ministry receive breakthroughs. People’s destiny comes alive.

If you have ever known that feeling of being “activated, authorized or catalyzed” to step into God’s plan for your life after reading one of my emails (like this one), listening to a teaching on YouTube or the podcast, attending a speaking event, or by being with me on my social media broadcasts, then please consider that now is the time to sow into the spirit and anointing on this ministry. Consider partnering with us throughout 2022 or by making a one-time, end-of-year donation by visiting https://lancewallnau.com/partner today.

Jesus said in John 15:8, “This is to My Father's glory, that you bear much fruit...” It is to God's glory that we work together to bear much fruit and expand each other’s garden. Now is the time to sow into the Spirit and all that God is doing in 2022. In these next few days, go to the garden and LISTEN.

I am so excited about your 2022. You’re about to have the best year of your life!
