5 Ways to Discern God’s Voice

May 1, 2012

We live in a noisy world. With all of these voices how do you identify God’s?

When you’re facing a critical decision, what is your process of making sure you’re hearing from God?

There are 5 identifiers that help you distinguish God’s voice, according to Charles Stanley:

1) The message must be consistent with Scripture.

2) The message will usually be in conflict with the mainstream of conventional human wisdom.

3) The message will clash with self gratification and basic human lusts.

4) The message will challenge one’s faith to rise to a new level.

5) The message will call for personal courage to do what God has said or to change what God has said to change.
