How do we receive God's guidance in our lives? How do we distinguish the voice of the Lord from the noise of the world?
Here are some different ways that we can hear from God:-
Through the Word of God
- the Bible. The psalmist declares "Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path".
(Ps 119:105, WEB)
By the Spirit of God
, for there's a promise - the Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth (if we let Him!) (John 16:13)• Through others
. This might be by someone praying for you and receiving a word, prophecy or perhaps a picture for you. But it might also be through a chance conversion or even a random stranger! (God is not just restricted to speaking through Christians)
Through the beauty of nature and God's creation
"The heavens declare the glory of God.
The expanse shows his handiwork. Day after day they pour forth speech, and night after night they display knowledge". (Ps 19:1-2, WEB)
