“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
God has chosen to speak to us as His children. From John 10:27, the Bible says: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me;” Learning to hear and obey the voice of God is very important as a child of God. Every believer must learn to hear and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit. From Malachi 3:6, the God that we serve does not change. “For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” This means that if God saved in Bible times, He still saves today; if God spoke to people in the past, He still does to His people today. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever.”
If God healed people in the days of old, He still heals today. God does not change, and so if there is something that He did in the days of old, then He can do that same thing today. He spoke to people in Bible days; meaning that He still speaks to people today. Hearing and obeying the voice of God is one key that is important for your success and prosperity as a child of God. If you want to succeed and prosper as a child of God, you must learn to hear and obey the voice of God. God is speaking right now; the question is “are you listening?” The Bible says “he who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”. You must learn to listen and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit, if you desire to succeed and prosper in your journey of life. Father God wants to speak to you directly. Because He’s a good Father, and every good Father wants to speak to His children. That is why you have the Holy Spirit in you. Through the Holy Spirit we have access to the heart of God. We have access to the voice of God through the Spirit of God. We have access to the mind of God; we can know the mind of God concerning our lives through the Spirit of God. By the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in your life, you can know the will of God for your life and destiny. By the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in your life, you can access the voice of God at any given time.
The Holy Spirit in you desires to tell you how God feels about you. The Holy Spirit in you wants to guide you to God’s perfect will for your life. The voice of God is perfect and full of love. The voice of God will always guide you into something that is best for you; the Holy Spirit will always lead you into things that will bring joy and satisfaction to your life. God will never speak condemnation to you. Beginning from today, I want you to expect to hear the voice of the Lord for your life. God wants to speak to you so that you can know His nature. He spoke to Father Abraham according to Genesis 17:1; “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.” Abraham heard the voice of God. God wants to speak to you to reveal His nature to you.
