Listening to God’s Voice
Nov 2, 2019, 12:26 AM
John 10:27 New King James Version (NKJV)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Every believer ( sheep) should know the Voice of God ( Shepherd).
Every son knows the voice of his earthly father.
Likewise every believer should know the voice of His Heavenly Father.
The Voice of Father is like thunder.( 2 Samuel 22:14) and mighty voice ( Psalm 68:33)
The Voice of Jesus Christ is the sound of many waters ( Rev 1:15, Ezekiel 43:2)
The Voice of Holy Spirit is still small voice ( 1 Kings 19:12).
Most of the times, Jesus Christ talks to His sheep ( believer) through Holy Spirit by still small voice.
You might have heard this still small voice many times but you must have ignored it many times.
