Good after noon, grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 28v23 Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say.
We hear this all the time, "We have to hear God's voice" We have to hear Him telling us to stay away from that, to do that and to follow this path but how do we know His voice since words can be twisted in all kinds of directions and it is easy for us to be deceived. Those of us that know Him and His voice differently from others have learned His voice in many ways. I am going to share with you one way that might help you know the difference from Satan and his lies and our faithful and true Heavenly Father. I am going to use the spirit of loneliness to guide this discussion. You can use fear, doubt, worry also but we are going to use loneliness. Many of us know God says he is always with us and will never leave us BUT we still feel alone. I have come to realize through God's wisdom He has given me Satan uses "sight" words and God uses "faith" words. In our natural human nature, our flesh, sight words are going to try and take us away from the faith words God gives us. Satan uses if, but, when, why and what just like God does. When God says if you will follow me you will never have that feeling of loneliness take over you again. IF you deny yourself you will never have that feeling of loneliness take over you again. IF you would only believe in me you would never have that feeling of loneliness take over you again,BUT you would not believe...... BUT you would not follow but you would not deny yourself. Satan uses "sight words" IF you are sick no one is going to come see you. IF you are in a crowded room you are still worthless. IF you work hard all your value will come from others. You would have a good relationship with your daughter BUT she is made at you. You would accomplish different desires in life BUT you will fail. You would have a lot of friends BUT no one likes the way you are. With Satan we can truly see these things happening in our lives with God they are words of faith we cannot see them or imagine them because they come from Him and the invisible world we cannot see. Today start listening to His "faith" words and not Satan's "sight" words they will easily deceive you because you can see them in your mind and they are always a lie. Faith words have a lot more power than sight words, when you listen to them they will soon drown out the sight words through God's fresh springs of water through His life giving Spirit and you will begin to live by our Heavenly Father's "faith words". I hope this has helped you discern between His voice of faith and Satan's lies. Do your own study with God's given "faith" words and Satan's "sight" words of lies with worry, doubt and fear it will help you to hear Him more clearly. Grace and peace to you from God our Father.
