Hearing Requires Listening

All month long we have been discussing if it is possible to hear from God and if so, HOW? This Sunday we are going to discover that we have all heard from God but we need to learn how to differentiate between what He is saying, what our flesh, our friends and the enemy is saying to us.

One of the best ways to know which one is God's voice is because everything He says to us is out of LOVE - spell that with me L-O-V-E. God is never going to say anything to us that is mean, will hurt us or lead us to hurt others. God will never say "that person just cheated off of your homework at school, you should go yell at them, call them a bad name and then hit them." However, just because it's out of love doesn't mean it will be easy, but we know that God wont ever harm us and that He loves us more than we can imagine!

Then enough with the talking, we are going to take some time in our service to wait on the Lord with pencils and paper ready and listen to what He is saying.

John 10:27 "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."
