What Does God’s Voice Sound Like?

How can we know when God is speaking to us?  Read John 10.

Jesus gave us some characteristics of the Shepherd’s voice:

  1. It is a familiar voice.  So we’ll recognize when it’s God’s.
  2. It’s personal.
  3. It’s simple and nurturing…even in rebuke He wants what’s best for us.

To be completely sure:

  1. Is it consistent with the Bible?
  2. Does it conflict with human logic?
  3. Does it stretch our faith?
  4. Does it require change?

If the answer is “YES” to all four of those questions then it’s probably God!
