1 Kings 19:12 (NIV) After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
One of the most asked question is, how do I know i’m hearing God and am in His will…
I remember personally asking that question so often, and for some reason nobody could truly answer that. Now I can say i’m so thankful for my own personal journey that Papa took me on, and the amazing people He brought into my life that have shown and taught me so much. Regardless what you’re facing at the moment, allow me to reassure you that you will appreciate the experience later. No matter how painful and difficult. God is using every single situation to teach us and grow us closer to Him.
Now, how do I know I hear God? PEACE!!!! That is the answer to everything. It’s really that simple, unfortunately as humans we love to over complicate things. Simply put, we have to step out of our comfort zone and trust Him to guide us and lead us on the path He’s called us to. When we have that thirsty desire to please God and do His will, we have to take chances. It’s ok to make mistakes, however, we’re also responsible to own up to them and not make excuses or try to defend our actions. Learning how to hear God does mean making mistakes.
A small whisper… a gut feeling… an unexplained knowing, all that followed by peace, that is God speaking!
Be confident in who you are in the Lord. Don’t listen to the enemy’s lies. He’s the father of lies but we are the Righteousness of God through Christ. Refresh your memory with what your true identity is in the Lord. Know that you hear Him, know that He lives in you and He will never leave you nor forsake you.
John 16:33 (NIV) “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
