Knowing God's Voice
If you have difficulty discerning if you are hearing God's voice, your own voice, or something else, here are three tips for "testing" the spirits:
1. Does it bring peace? In God's presence we feel peace, so if what you hear doesn't bring peace, it isn't God. Even "hard" truth brings peace because we recognize it as truth.
2. Does it agree with Scripture? God will not contradict Himself, so if you hear something opposed to Scriptural truth, it isn't God speaking.
3. Will it produce good fruit? Everything from God is loving and produces the fruit of the Spirit. If what you are hearing will produce something other than these fruits, it isn't God.

Love this! You make some excellent points and this could not have come at a better time as I was just asking myself if I was hearing of God or of self. Now I know.

These are such valid and valuable points. In this time with so many voices vying for our attention, it is critical that we know which One is God.

Really loved this! Just yesterday I talked to a gentleman who started working for my brother. I could tell God brought him into that job for His purposes and the man felt a peace as well. We all need someone to mentor us in our faith, work and who can be a positive example. Thank you for sharing this message!
