The Art of Hearing-The Perfect will and Imperfect Will of God


Isaiah 30:21
And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.

John 10:27
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”


Hello friends, I recently finished reading a fantastic book with the catchy title “The Art of Hearing,” which was written by “BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS,” one of my most important spiritual guides and father figures in the ministry. I must admit that reading through the pages of his numerous books, in particular the one that focuses on this significant topic that is deceptively straightforward but is essential to the church, was a truly blessed experience for me.

I would be sharing his ideas along with what I have learned from his teachings and what I have put into practice as a direct result of those lessons. I pray that as you read these lines and have a genuine desire to study the Word of God, that God would reveal certain things to you and grant you strong listening ears that would yield to His voice. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that this will happen.

Let’s begin with this scripture in Romans 12:2- “…. that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and PERFECT, WILL OF GOD.

The will of God can be described as perfect or imperfect. The imperfect will of God is called imperfect because it has the semblance of the true will of God but is not really what God wants.

The perfect will of God is the complete, mature, and full will of God. The imperfect will of God allows men to do even though it is not His first choice for them.


  1. The perfect will of God is the place where God really wants you to be. God is pleased with you when you are in His perfect will, and He is excited when your name is mentioned.
  2. In the perfect will of God you are excellently positioned, fitting exactly into the original plan of God.
  3. In the perfect will of God, you perfectly meet the needs for which God designed you.


  1. God allows His children into the imperfect will as a result of their rebelliousness and rejection of His original and perfect plan for them.
  2. When you are in the imperfect will of God, God is not really pleased with you. He is just accommodating you, being patient with you and giving you time to repent.
  3. In the imperfect will of God you may seem to have God’s favour, but you are incomplete in your service to the Lord and not fulfilling God’s original purpose for your life.
  4. The imperfect will of God is the place where you are inappropriately and also unqualified for your job.

Dear friends, we will pick up where we left off tomorrow as we examine “moving from the perfect to the imperfect will of God.” Please, I would like to strongly encourage you to stay turned with me on this theme until the end because God wants you to remain always in His PERFECT WILL. Staying with me on this theme until the end will help you do this. Cheers!!!


Dear Lord Jesus, please, help us to understand how to hear your voice and to remain in your perfect will, Amen.
