Do you recognize that sweet voice? Do you know His tone, His accent? God's voice is:
Just (Romans 2:6-8)
Holy (Exodus 15:11)
Merciful (Psalm 5:7)
Loving (1 John 4:8)
True (John 14:1,2)
When He speaks, it will always be in accordance with His character which He revealed to us in His Word.
A few words about condemnation vs. conviction:
God’s conviction is kind and specific whereas Satan’s condemnation is general (i.e. you’re a terrible person) and leads to shame.
God’s leading brings peace, not confusion. If we lack peace, it can be a signal that we’re listening to voices other than God.
God calls us to take leaps of faith and to walk on the path less traveled. Is this new step going to stretch you spiritually? That’s a good sign that it’s from God.
How has He been speaking to you today?
