Hi everyone, One of the things I struggle with is how to recognise Gods voice. An example of this would be if I am praying for direction and guidance on a particular issue, and a thought about what i should do pops into me head, how do I know it is from God? I have heard people speak of confirmation and describe it as being different sources confirming that you are on the right path. How does one differentiate between confirmation and coincidence? What confuses me about confirmation is how do I know it is from God... Example... When I watch the C christian channel... I notice that different programmes may have a similar message / theme eg. fasting goals etc.... That's multiple!e sources with a similar message. Does that mean the message is for me from God? I pray and I ask God to show me where he wants me to God, but how do I recognise His voice... What do I need to do to recognise His voice?
Hi everyone, thank you all for your responses. You have given me alot to think about. Coming out clearly is that I need to know His Word more deeply. I do find that it is not always a question of right or wrong... An example of this would be remain in a current job that you enjoy or take up a post with higher pay. Most people would jump to the latter option. However, life should not always be about material things but walking and living according to His will. For me my struggle is listening to the feeling / pull that I have as I am not certàin if it is because I desire to make a certain decision or its Gods will. Unless silence is an answer It's becoming increasingly clear that for me, the starting point is become immersed in the Word... With time, I hope to become more sensitive to the promptings of the Spirit.
