Can you hear me now?
In order to successfully complete our tasks, assignments, activities, and enhance our spiritual growth we must make sure that we, the listeners comprehend what the speaker (spirit, soul, and body) is saying.
What clarification probing questions should we be asking ourselves before making decisions?
1. Clarification questions within a professional environment
a. Is this what you said? Then we paraphrase what we heard back to the staff member, co-worker, or supervisor.
b. “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33).
2. Clarification questions within a confrontational environment
a. Breathe. Seek God’s wisdom in prayer and avoid responding from an emotional state and then we can ask did I hear you correctly when you said?
b. “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (James 1:19).
3. Clarification questions when feelings down, sad, or depressed
a. Pray and ask the Lord to reveal the source of your emotional state: fatigue, health issues, unforeseen trauma, grief etc.
b. Seek the Scripture for faith declarations.
c. Deal with the emotional state in Christ; however, do not stay there. Make your faith declarations
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles” (Psalm 34:17).
“I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him” (Psalm 40: 1-3).
