In the last part (Part 4), I will discuss about the “WHAT” factor – What if we are still unsure? Especially for major decisions, it is imperative for us to really know that it is the voice of God’s. Following our “intuition” is going to cost us grief in the future if we are not in tune with God’s will.
Then I’ll close it with the “WHEN AND WHERE” – when you feel God is silent or just doesn’t care with what you are going through at the moment. Or when you just can’t seem to hear His voice or answers to your prayers.
I shared this topic to our Youth group last Saturday. I received good feedback about it so I decided to write a summary about this topic so you can shared it to others too.
How do we hear God’s voice? This is probably one of the most “popular” questions from every Christian out there, including myself. We often wonder: How do we hear from God? How do we know that it’s from God? When does He speak? Which option should I choose? Which job should I take? Should I go back to my home country or should I stay here permanently? Should I be with this man or woman? And many others. As such, it is important to be able to hear from God and to hear it clearly.
I’ve decided to divide this topic into 5W + 1H: Why, Who, How, What, and When/Where.
This is How to hear God’s voice – part 1. I’ll discuss on the importance of hearing the voice of God briefly.
A man was praying to god.
He said, “God ?”
God responded, “Yes?”
And the Guy said, ” Can I ask a question?”
“Go right ahead”, God said.
A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked:
‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:
‘I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I’m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.’
Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil. It didn’t seem very special.
‘But it’s just like any other pencil I’ve ever seen!’
