The Voice of God

But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16).

How can we know if it is God’s voice that is speaking to us? We have the Bible, the inspired Word of God, to read, to study, and to meditate on day and night. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Are we thoroughly equipped?

By now we should be able to discern who is speaking since God will never lead us contrary to His Word (Titus 1:2-3). Instead, He directs us, guides and leads us only in the narrow path of righteousness–anything else is the spirit of evil. This is why we cannot assimilate with those who are not like-minded. Additionally, He satisfies us, sanctifies us and purifies us when we flee from the bondage of Satan.

He reassures and encourages us. Even though He disciplines us according to His word, He comforts and communes with us to build us back up. Regardless of His discipline we must keep the faith and continue striving for perfection to receive the crown of life. Are you ready to enter the prepared place for prepared people? Do we really want to gamble with others to lose our salvation?

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who mediates on His law–day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whole leaf does not wither–whatever they do prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away” (Psalm 1:1-4).


We must divorce ourselves from this corrupt world to be removed from the devil’s prey ground. Regardless of who we choose to listen to, we are responsible for the state of our own soul (Acts 2:40). We must be mindful of whose voice is talking in our ears because the only Watcher, God, who matters, is watching and listening.

We must keep our minds charged up in God’s Word like we keep our electronic devices fully charged to be ready for use at any moment. In like matter, Jesus is returning at any moment without a low battery warning. Hence, stay spiritually charged.

  1. Tomorrow begins the Lenten Season and it is the perfect opportunity for all Christians to take the opportunity to Draw Closer to Christ, as in the book of James 4:8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. The many ways for any or all is by fasting, reading Scriptures, be in a Bible Study. Too many times many new Christians and even the ones who have been a Christian for awhile truly don’t understand what they are reading., so they need to be apart of a Bible study with their Pastor, and it is okay to ask questions when you truly don’t understand what that Pastor is teaching. Another way is to journal this is something I have been doing for years. Many believe if they give up something like candy, chocolate, soda is the same as the sacrifice our Lord made for all of us and it is not. The most important is your prayer life. God already knows our wants and needs what He truly want and what we truly need is to have a relationship with him. So as we begin this Lenten Season let us all draw closer to our Lord by changing from the inside-out.

    1. Agree. It is crucial for ministers and congregations teach new converts and watch over them. New convert classes are essential. Satan is ready for them as he still seek long time mature and immature Christians who still lack biblical knowledge. I do think part of the problem of not asking is being ashamed. We should never be shamed to ask for true understanding and meaning of the scriptures. Otherwise, we remain ignorant.

      1. Agree however I know from my own experiences that some Pastors hates when someone asks them questions and challenges them especially women. I am a Pastor now and I welcome everyone’s questions
