Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
We all want to hear God’s voice and I often get asked “but how do I know if it’s God’s voice or just thoughts in my head?”
I think the answer to this question is often the same answer to many of the questions we have…….in order to know God’s voice we have to know God. How do we get to know God? Of course we know the answer……by reading the Bible, by spending time with God and by asking God to reveal Himself to us. The more time we spend doing these things the better we will get to know Him and the more often and easier it will be for us to hear God’s voice.
The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy so if the voice I hear is accusatory or negative I will discern that it is not God I’m hearing. I also know it’s very hard to hear God’s voice amidst all the ‘noise’ going on in and around my life. So finding a quiet place for a quiet time is essential for me…..it’s not to say that God can’t or won’t talk to me through the noise, but He does need to raise His voice! I also believe this is something we have to practice and that it is a journey as with a lot of our Christian walk. So I encourage you if you don’t already, find a time and find a place and begin or continue to learn to hear God’s voice. It really is very exciting!
