Can Your Hear God’s Voice?

Have you often wondered as I have just what exactly is “hearing God’s voice”? God in his wisdom knows that we as humans ponder that question at different times in our lives. As a matter of fact it has been at the focal point of all creation and especially when Adam and Eve were created in the Garden of Eden.

I find it very interesting that during the creation God actually spoke to his creation and commanded it and the creatures there in to do his will. NIV Genesis 1 20-25 Do you think that creation had a choice in not listening to God’s voice as you and I do today?

What a unique privilege it must have been as it is today to literally hear the sound of God’s voice. He gave clear instructions and specific commands to them on exactly what he wanted and expected. Genesis 1 28-30
How can you know for sure that you’ve heard Him correctly?

Is it consistent with the Word of God? God will not communicate anything that is contrary to his word the bible. If you are in fact reading the bible and seeking his voice the Holy Spirit will bring the word of God to remembrance or direct you to it, and it will be spot on for the current situation you are facing.

Do I have genuine peace about it? The Holy Spirit is wonderful at confirming God’s word in our hearts. You can trust God’s word for any and everything in your life, regardless of the circumstances. You have the advantage of knowing that billions of other people on the planet have experienced and been challenged with the same things you are going through, and that the same word of God was the answer for them. It always has been and always will be. NKJV 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Is this consistent with God’s overall will and plan for my life? If you are expecting
God to say something that is not consistent for his plan in your life of character
development and spiritual growth and making you more like his son Jesus, then you
need to go back to the drawing board and realign your priorities, wants and desires
with his desires for your life.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work
together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his
purpose.

Yes, I will admit this is mostly easier said than done. Even I have difficulty at times holding it all together when life stresses press upon me. I recall as recent as last week that I was emotionally overwhelmed by the hurtful behavior of other people toward me. But after the emotional torrent calmed down in my soul, I was gently reminded of the behavior that I could expect from people who have not had the born again experience. I was reminded how my old behavior was in keeping with my old nature before the born again experience.

We all need reminding from time to time, and I am glad that God will bring us back to emotional balance if we are willing to listen to his gentle voice.

  2. Eugene Coghill,
    I thank God for using you to share through this blog with the viewers that it is important hearing the voice of God! And getting alone with God listening for the counsel of His holy spirit . In these end times it is an urgency through intercession that we stand in the gap and cry out on the behalf of our nation for a true heart of repentance. 2 Chronicles 7:14
    1 Timothy 2:1-6

    Encountering God & Hearing His Voice Who Is Alive !!!
    We are wired to hearing God voice !!! That’s if you are a born again believer and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
    God is still speaking in the earth and in the heavenly realms! God is all seeing,hearing, knowing and all powerful!! God wants to give us instructions for our lives. To manifest and make Himself to be known to us. God long to reveal himself to us through fellowship. So we can encounter and experience the attributes, heart and character of the omnipresence of God. We all have a free will to choose the life God has already predestined, purpose and plan for our lives. I have experience that with out God there is a empty void. Only God can go deep down to the core of our being and heal that which was broken. And through the power of the blood ,power of the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit can liberates us !!!
    We have to train and posture ourselves to hear the voice of God the one who created us for fellowship. John 1o:27
    Some ways God speak to us is through His word,prayer prophets,word of knowledge,revelation, dreams,visions,worship.
    Romans 10:9-10 It is a act of faith!!!
    John 3:3-5
    James 4:8
    Genesis 28:12
    Job 38:1-9 , Job 38:18-23, Job 40:7-14
    Job 23:10-12,
    Job 38:4-5 , Job 38:6-9 Job 42:1-17
    And God is looking for people who will humble themselves!
    And when we hear His voice obey His voice! God is always speaking. Job got a revelation of who God is ! Job had a personal encounter and experience in the Glory of God !!
    And as Job sat and heard from God he had to repent and was restored . Job had heard about God and then was able to see!
    God caused Job to see with a different perspective and empowered . It’s many voices that tries to deceive us.
    Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the church . And to us personally and concerning marriages,family,health, finance,career,business in every aspect in our lives on down to the third and fourth generation . Yes the everlasting God loves us so much and he cares about those things more than we do. God said I’am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
    Revelation 2:29
    John 14:16 , John 16:13
