Being Certain About Hearing God
- Friday, 22 February 2013 20:29
The question I get asked often is how can you be certain that God has spoken to you? I believe there are 3 sure-fire ways to know with certainty He has.
1. Does the Bible support it?
This one is a little touchy because if you don’t know the Word, you’ll think I’m crazy. For instance, if you are trying to decide if your current significant other is the “one”; chances are that there will not be a verse that says “Suzy you will marry Jerome.” However, there is a chapter that describes what love is and if you have “it”, then let the wedding bells sound.
2. Consult with someone that knows more than you.
You’d be a fool to ask investment advice from someone that has less money than you; then why would you ask just anyone about matters of faith? Find someone that knows His Word, whose life exemplifies Jesus Christ.
After steps 1 & 2 are completed, the question you must ask yourself is, do I have peace? Am I comfortable with it? When God speaks, despite what is said, a peace should always be present.
When all three steps are confirmed, take it to the bank; He has spoken. Practice hearing His voice because He loves to talk to us.
