God wants to flood the earth in such a way that when he looks down all he sees is himself, a people after his own heart. Would you answer the call and hear his voice? God releases his glory on the earth through a people that can be ambassadors of him. We as his people will have a greater impact because we are spread all over the earth … greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).
How do I know that God is Speaking to me
John 10: 27 says “my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”. We have to wake up to this truth everyday, knowing that God speaks to me. If God is saying something we also have to be careful to, listen, obey and say what he says, not what our emotions lead us to. We have to practice daily walking in the presence of God, even if we miss it, continue to practice.
One saturday, I went to an ATM to withdraw some cash. That particular ATM had two available machines, as I walk in, I felt lead to go to one machine, but a voice, my voice over shadowed and said “no there are too much people outside go to the next machine”. It so happened that when I went to the next machine I ended up losing money in that transaction. Guys i did not realise then that the lord was speaking to me, I did not trust his voice. When that moment came back to me at church that Sunday ( as pastor thought on this same topic John 10:27) I cried, because I realised that there is always the prompting of the spirit but how often do I allow my voice, my understanding to defy what he is trying to say. That moment left me miserable for a while until I realised that I had not developed that trust God want me to have, knowing that I am his sheep and I will hear his voice, it’s up to me then to listen.
Develop a trust with the lord by declaring, Lord I am trusting you I hear your voice. As John 16: 13 says “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come”. When the spirit of God breaks out on the inside of you, you will be ahead of all that is planning wickedness against you. Know that if anyone fights against you they fight against the apple of his eye. Develop that trust and faith, this development is preparation for tomorrow.
