Those of us that are Christians know the voice of our Shepherd.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: – John 10:27
A while back I shared how I hear God speak and had been honing that ability for years. I first heard God speak to me when I was yet a young teen. At the age of twelve, maybe thirteen, He told me I was called to ministry.
In sharing such a part of my life I got a couple of responses in the conversation that I must be schizophrenic. Of course this comes from people that don’t understand. So to them I suppose I’m in need of mental intervention.
I guess they never have considered that there are voices other than God’s that whisper such denial of this ability. I’ve admittedly heard several different voices in my lifetime, but I know God’s voice distinctly.
I have stories of the results of hearing His voice. I haven’t the time to write all of it at this moment. Several times I have seen the results of hearing His voice. I cannot deny Him.
Prayer is conversation. This is the main way to talk with God. We talk. We listen. If you say you never hear God talk, do you take time during prayer to listen?
