How do you hear from God?
I had a great conversation last night with a person. In the middle of the conversation we were talking about something and I said- well that is what God was saying to you. She said- Does God speak like that?
I began to think about this during my time of reflection this am. Otherwise known as blur until I had a HOT cup of tea. How do you hear from God? How does he speak to you?
As believers, hearing God speak to us is our right and our privilege. The Word says that we can know his voice and distinguish it from others; He give us discernment to identify His voice over the other voices in our lives. John 10:3-5
Just as any other relationship in our lives we have to spend time with HIM to get to know him. His voice will not be contrary to the wisdom and principles in the Bible.
I just usually have a feeling from the pit of my stomach and know that it is HIM. It is not an out-loud voice in my head, it is not me opening up the Bible and pointing at a page. It is not always someone else having a word for me. It is just a knowing.
I guess it is hard to explain isn't it?
How do you hear from God? What has he spoken to you? Have you ever felt to tell someone something and have not been brave enough to do it? Comment away!
