How can we know when God is speaking to us? Read John 10.
Jesus gave us some characteristics of the Shepherd’s voice:
- It is a familiar voice. So we’ll recognize when it’s God’s.
- It’s personal.
- It’s simple and nurturing…even in rebuke He wants what’s best for us.
To be completely sure:
- Is it consistent with the Bible?
- Does it conflict with human logic?
- Does it stretch our faith?
- Does it require change?
If the answer is “YES” to all four of those questions then it’s probably God!
