Sound of His voice
By: Dr. Faith Abraham
Recently a woman said that one of the best things that could have happened to her was the time frame in which she was flat broke. She stated that during her time of being broke and without money it was hard but hindsight being 20/20 she realized that much of her current success was rooted in her experience. She learned how to lean on God, implement the Word of God for all of her situations and most importantly she learned to hear God’s voice.
Hearing God’s voice is an essential and vital aspect of living the God kind of life here on earth. John 14 tells us that the Spirit of the Lord will guide us into all truth, wisdom, understanding, counsel and foreknowledge. That means we can be aware of the various happenings that we will encounter and know the best decision to make.
I Chronicles 12:32 says, “And the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know we, those who are in Christ, exceed the anointing of that which was working in the children of Issachar because we are in Christ (He is before all things and by Him all things consist Colossians 1:17). what Israel ought to do; …”. The word “know” in Hebrew, as used in this verse, means God is the One who gives the personal understanding and revelation; this understanding and revelation cannot come from oneself or a book.
So when we hear the voice of God as to know what to do in our situations and since He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask, think or imagine; we are then able to walk in the fullness of God’s glory in our lives. Then when we act on what the voice of God is saying to us our lives change for the better and His purpose and destiny for us begins to manifest!
God does not want us to be stuck in our situations or issues; He wants us to be free. He knows what it takes for us to be free so when He speaks to us it is to our benefit to listen and to act.
The only way to decipher between God’s voice, your voice and the enemy’s voice is to spend time with God. In prayer, meditation on the Word and reading the Word. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1); spending time in the Word will make God’s voice clearer to you. Once you receive the Word of God in your spirit, the mountain(s) in your life MUST move! Amen.
