Hearing His Voice

Scripture art done by Krystal Hartley can be downloaded in our shop.

Describe a time you heard God's voice. He may have "spoke" to you through scripture, a sermon, another person, worship, on the radio, a church service, a dream, etc.

Did you know it was his voice you were hearing? Did you think it was just you thinking? How did you react?

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

God can guide your thoughts by speaking directly to your heart and mind.
1. Hearing God's voice is a learned behavior. It takes some time and training to hear God's voice.
See 1 Samuel 3:4-10
2. God can speak to anyone.
3. God's voice has distinguishing characteristics.
He will always speak in ways consistent with his character
*if you have an anxious thought it is not from God.

We come to recognize God's promptings by:
  • Focusing on God's attributes
  • Learning from our personal experience
  • Studying his voice in scripture

We can learn to recognize Gods voice by the way it affects our hearts. His voice...
  • Will always be consistent with scripture.
  • Will be consistent with who he made you to be.
  • Will be consistent with love.

A simple question to ask: Is this action selfish or loving?
I used to really struggle with knowing if it was God or just me thinking. Two years ago when I started going to Intercessory prayer every Monday evening and really started spending tons of time in prayer...and taking time to stop and listen. Listening was something I had never really taken the time to do prior to those Monday night prayer meetings. I started deciphering the Holy Spirit from the other competing voices. I still have times when I wander if it is just me thinking or if it is really the Holy Spirit. Typically if I analyze a minute and it is a good thing that will bring God glory I just do it. Sometimes I can immediately tell that it had been from God because of the reaction that occurs.
