Talking To God
Talking to God is very personal, very real, and very beneficial... just remember to listen to His voice.
And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Matthew 17:3
Dear Reliable Bible Verses Believer,
Do you want to know one of the secrets of staying in the will of God and keeping yourself from getting off track?
Simply talking to the Lord. A lot of people think they are already... but I'm not so sure.
Don't put yourself in a position where you think you don't have to be talking to Him.
Look back on your life and see how many times you could have lost what God had given you. See how many times, when you were floundering around making every mistake imaginable, His tender and precious mercy pulled you through.
So Expect to Hear His Voice
"The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice, and I know them and they follow Me."John 10:27
So many believers are unsure of their ability to hear God or know His voice. They're always afraid that they won't be able to tell when the Spirit of God is talking to them.
What they don't realize is this: Hearing the voice of the Spirit is a privilege that the Bible says belongs to every believer (Rom. 8:14). All we have to do to exercise that privilege is to receive it by faith and put ourselves in a position to hear.
Jesus said His sheep will know His voice and a stranger's voice they will not follow. That is a promise of God to you today. You see, the Spirit of God will never guide you in opposition to the written Word of God (John 16:13). So, if you're not familiar with what the Word says, you'll find it more difficult to discern His leading.
Get familiar with God's voice by meditating and studying the Word of God. Follow God's instruction to Joshua and meditate on it day and night. Act on what you find in the Word, not just when it's easy but every time. Be obedient even in the slightest things.
That continual obedience to the written Word will bring you into maturity and tune your inward ear to the voice of the Spirit. You'll soon be able to recognize it as easily as you recognize the voice of your dearest friend.
So, instead of wondering about it, start expecting to hear from Him.
When talking to God start sharpening your spiritual ears as well by spending time in His Words listening.
