Identifying The Voice Of God

Identifying The Voice Of God

 

 

 

TEXT: Jonah 1: 1-3.

 

 
INTRODUCTION: Today, we will learn how to differentiate between God’s voice and that of the devil; and we will tell us some reasons why people find it difficult to obey the voice of God even when they are sure it was God speaking to them.

 

 
HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE GOD’S VOICE FROM THAT OF THE DEVIL?

 
It is essential to know whether you are hearing God or a particular message is from the devil with the intention of misleading you or distracting your attention. Whenever God sends us a message or speaks to us, such a message will

 

(i) agree with the Holy Scriptures. Jonah 2: 1-2; Matt.4: 1-11; 2 Tim.3: 16-17; Ps.119: 11; Rom.15: 4; 1 Jn.5: 3.

 
(ii) You will have peace within

 

(iii) God could use other means of revelation to confirm or warn you. Rom.8: 14.

 

 
WHY DO PEOPLE DISOBEY THE VOICE OF GOD?
Even when people are really sure that God is the one speaking to them, they could still resist His will and refuse to carry out His injunctions. Some of the reasons why people disobey God may include:

 
(i) The love of earthly rewards. Numbers 22: 9-13, 2 Pet.2: 15.

 
(ii) Fear. 1 Samuel 15: 1-3, 1 Samuel 9, 1 Samuel 13-15, 1 Samuel 22.

 
(iii) Non-agreement with their expectation. Jonah 1: 1-3;  Jonah 4: 1-2; Acts.10: 9-16.

 

 

 

You may add to this list.

 

 
CONCLUSION: Obedience is better than sacrifice.

 

 

Thank You Jesus.
