How can we recognize the voice of God?



God does not communicate in the same way we do, which may make it difficult to know when we are hearing His voice. Being certain in knowing that you are hearing God’s voice comes to someone who is united with Him in fellowship, seeking Him diligently (1 Corinthians 6:17). We need to be spending time with the Lord to understand His character; the more familiar we become with who He is, the easier it will become to discern what is from Him. We must also line up what we hear against God’s word. God will never speak to us something contradictory to His word; He has given it to us as the basis of all truth, and God will never say anything untrue to us.
