When I heard His voice
Hannah Stevens
January 3rd, 2012

I was like many others.  Tired and disillusioned with my petty performance.  Frustrated with my inability to be perfect.  Using guilt and shame to motivate me to “not mess up again.”  Then, eight years ago, it all came to a head. I found myself literally hiding under my bed, hopelessly confronted with my complete inability to do anything.  In my desperation, I uttered a silent prayer to God, shamefully apologizing for all my failed should’s and supposed to’s. Suddenly, out of nowhere, His voice broke through.  In an instant, HE was there.  His words crashed through the cloak of despair and heaviness and like piercing light brought truth: “Hannah.  I just want you.”

The voice of God: firm yet gentle, patient but unrelenting, crystal clear in intent and yet subtle and mysterious.  Tantalizing in its nearness, terrifying in its awesomeness.  His voice produces an inner ache.  It rips off our current conceptions and concerns, bringing the reality of eternity into our midst. Our inner parts are suddenly unveiled as the “entrance of His word brings light” (Psalm 119:130). And we are transformed.

God still speaks.

His Word speaks. Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

His acts speak. 1 Corinthians 2:4 “and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power”

His Spirit speaks. Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Oh that we might dwell permanently under the spotlight of His voice!  Our flesh will be vulnerable and exposed, yes, but our spirits will be awakened under His resounding covering.  There is no better bread than the Word of God.  There is no sweeter honey than the sweetness His truth brings to our souls.   The voice of God: utterly transcendent, intimately personal.  His voice is our inheritance; it invites us into intimacy.  His voice reveals His heart, His heart expresses His nature.  I pray that this year God will release His voice to us, His bride, and that He will give us fertile hearts to receive His words gladly.

Healing Rooms
11/23/2014 3:45pm - 4:45pm

If you are wrestling with physical sickness, a chronic disease, a painful injury, or a heavy emotional burden, then there is good news for you. God's Word says that He is exceedingly kind and loves to heal (Psalm 103:1-5). During His earthly ministry, Jesus healed all who came to Him (Matthew 4:24). God has promised that the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick (James 5:15). Therefore, we want to stand with you in prayer and faith, believing God to perform a healing work in your life.

Our Healing Rooms will be held from 3:45 - 4:45 pm on Sunday evenings weekly.

Appointments for personal ministry can be made starting at 3:30 pm on a first-come, first-serve basis. This personal time of ministry will typically last 20 minutes with one of our Healing Rooms ministry teams.

Prophecy Rooms
11/23/2014 3:45pm - 4:45pm

At IHOP Atlanta, we desire to encourage and strengthen believers through the prophetic ministry. We have prophecy teams that are trained to hear the heart of the Lord for people and to minister His words of encouragement, edification, and exhortation (1 Cor 14:3). It is our prayer that believers will be strengthened in their faith and have a clearer understanding of how God feels and thinks about them after receiving ministry in the prophecy rooms. If you desire to encounter God's love for you in practical way, we encourage you to sign up for a ministry time in our prophecy rooms.

The prophecy rooms are open on Sundays from 3:45-4:45 PM. Appointments can be made 15 minutes prior. They are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Appointments typically last 10 minutes and are recorded for your convenience.
