Knowing Your Heavenly Fatherís Voice
Knowing Your Heavenly Father’s Voice
Wayne McDonald

John 10:14 I am the good shepherd and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize me. If you have given your life to the Lord, you hear His voice. Deception will say you don’t hear Him. Those around you that are not serving the Lord will tell you, you don’t hear Him. But His sheep hear His voice.

When God speaks to you it will always line up with His word. James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled): then it is peace loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity)

When the Lord speaks to you He speaks through your born again spirit. It will sound like you because it is coming through your spirit. You have probably dismissed the voice of the Lord more times than you know.

Because you thought that those thoughts were yours. How many times have you stopped to get gas and when you were about to leave you heard minister to that gas attendant. Give that man a track. That is the voice of the Lord. Somebody does something to you that are not right and you hear just let it go and move on.

That is the voice of the Lord. When He speaks it is pure, peaceful, full of compassion, and it will produce good fruits. Don’t make hearing God difficult. Jesus said come to me like a child. Simply quiet yourself listen and obey. You know His voice and the voice of a stranger you will not follow.
