In John 10:27, the Bible says ‘my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me’.
Being able to differentiate the voice of God from our own desires and ideas or satanic lies is very essential once one has gained salvation. When we speak to God, he responds. Therefore, children of God have no reason to blindly navigate through life, not when Jesus is our shepherd.
What we need to bear in mind is that the voice of God does not contradict the word of God.
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven -Psalm 119:89.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away -Luke 21:33
God will not ‘lead’ you to disobey the scriptures. E.g. God will not say to you ‘continue to keep malice with this person’
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.Galatians 1:8.
When you pray, ask God to speak to you through His word. Ask for discernment to hear His voice and ask for an obedient spirit to receive and do as his word says.
Study and meditate on the word more often. Knowledge of God’s word will prevent you from being deceived by satanic lies and manipulations.
