The Importance Of Hearing the Voice of God.
By: Samaria Maria Colbert
The Lord spoke to me a few days ago and said, “I want you to write your next post on the importance of really hearing the voice of God”. So here it is. The most important thing to know about the God is that He does speak to His people clearly and in a way you can understand. His voice will never lead you into confusion. It is easy to be deceived into thinking you have heard the voice of God when you have not. You can confuse the voice of God with your own, others who are close to you, or people in high positions. People of God you must hear the voice of God for yourself. Great men and women of God are to confirm, they are not nor will they ever be gods. They confirm.
First things first all my life I have had a very close relationship with God. I have gotten to the place in my life where I simply know the voice of God. This has come from years of pain, isolation and trials. Because of the office that I am called to walk in God has called me to spend many hours and years alone. No one knows the countless hours I spent awake at night crying out to God. No one knows the lonely days, what it’s like to walk in complete and utter aloneness. No one knows the pain it cost to be truly anointed by God. Everyone wants the glory, no one wants the process. But through it all God has always been there. The process has perfected my character, shaped and reshaped my motives, challenged my dreams and most of all led me down a beautiful, painful and wonderful path all at the same time.
Over these years I have grown tremendously in leaps and bounds. Of course I am not a know it all. I am just a quiet girl from a small town who loves God more than life itself. One day I sought God for His divine purpose and He answered me in a way that I could have never imagined. I want nothing more than to live and die for Him. He is my everything. He means everything. I am completely and utterly nothing without Him. I am going to be honest if it had not been for Him I simply would have committed suicide along time ago. If Jesus is not with me there is no point in living. I love Him so much. I have had to die many deaths over and over again. Jesus purifying and breaking me all at the same time. Before you manifest the Glory you must always die first. If your not willing to die you don’t qualify.
So the point is through all of this if I have come out with one thing that I am most proud of although there are many things. The thing I am most proud of is my relationship with God and my ability to hear His voice. I know the voice of God like I know my very own name. His voice is more real to me than my own. I have keen discernment and can rightfully discern what truly is even when others around me don’t see. When I speak, I speak what I have heard not my own opinions. This has gotten me hated, accused of being mean and jealous even though I spoke in love and not my own words the words God told me to speak. His voice is more truthful to me than my very own mother. I live by His voice. I yearn to simply hear His voice. I have come to be even more confident in my ability to hear His voice. Or should I say His ability to reveal His divine plan to me because I truly know that it is not about me or my ability it is about Him, requiring my obedience. Don’t get it twisted there is a difference between what is required of you and what is being asked of you. Something being asked of you implies a choice. Requirement is not a choice. If you don’t meet the requirements, you suffer the consequence of disobedience. It is not a choice that I obey the law it is a requirement. I am not being asked to obey I am being required. I can still choose to disobey the law but if I do I suffer the consequence such as jail.
The point is God is not asking us to know His voice it is a requirement. The minute you make major life decisions without hearing His voice you suffer the consequences of disobedience. This is why you must hear from God for yourself and know His voice. Great men and women of God can be sincere and still be sincerely wrong. When God speaks to you about any major life transitions you will know it. If you have not heard His voice for yourself don’t move until you get the answer. Sometimes you can want the right thing at the wrong time. God always speaks in part. So you still have to wait for further instructions. I have learned many things about hearing the voice of God over the years. Many things. I have always had a keen sense of discernment. I know what is God, what is not God. I am not impressed by someone’s gift, their title, their spiritual gifts or their position. There are men and women of God that I respect but they do not nor will they ever take the place of God. In fact I am never dependent on someone else for a word from God. Never. I pray for confirmation whether that be from a man or woman of God or not but revelation comes from my relationship with God.
Pray God’s people, pray for a spirit of discernment. I have some great gifts but the gift that I am most proud of is discernment. I only pray that God will continue to increase me in discernment. By the way with discernment comes wisdom and knowledge into the mind of God. They are like a package if you get one the others are their. I have seen people hook up with wrong people, make fools of themselves, hurt other people and destroy their lives all because they thought they heard from God. If you don’t know anything else remember the voice of God will not lead you into sin or confusion. Never! It doesn’t matter how many times a person says they heard from God. GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION! When God speaks His voice is always preceded or proceeded by His peace. You can shout, speak in tongues all day long. YOU DID NOT HEAR FROM GOD! If you don’t have peace, find yourself in a bunch of confusion you did not hear from GOD!
It is so important now a days that we as believers truly hear from God. There is spirit of division, manipulation and above all deception that is running rapid through out our lives both inside the church and in the world. While at the same time the people of God don’t know His voice, spend little time in His word and are more dependent on a preacher for a word from God like never before. Consequently we are easily deceived, easily manipulated and easy pulled into diverse sin all because we supposedly heard from God.
Remember you have to know God to show God. If you don’t spend time in His word you don’t know God. If you are in leadership and you can’t truly discern His voice you are not showing God you are showing yourself. Never think more highly of yourself than you aught to. God longs to speak to His people directly, not just through a few leaders.
NOW A DAYS NOT KNOWING THE VOICE OF GOD CAN AND WILL CAUSE YOU TO LOOSE MORE THAN YOUR DESTINY, IT CAN AND IT WILL COST YOU YOUR LIFE!
I believe this is why God admonished me to write this post. He is grieved when His very own people, who have served Him for years don’t know His voice or go in a direction He didn’t say thinking they heard from His voice.
God will use a minister to lead you to His voice. He will NEVER reveal more to the minister than He will reveal to you. NEVER! They lead you to the water. They do not drink for you. They confirm! But God reveals the ministry of His will directly to you.
You will reach the place in God when someone else speaking to you about Him is simply not enough. He will get you to the point where He does not allow someone to speak to you. You WILL get to the place where you must hear from God for yourself.
There will be times that God is not speaking. He does get quiet and refuse to speak. It is during those times that you must be still. Don’t move to the left, don’t move to the right be still!
I have compiled some things I know about hearing the voice of God. I admonish you to read and reread this post over and over again. Deception is very real. I know of someone right now who disobeyed God after He gave them so many warning. He then took the mantle off of them and placed in on someone else. This person is still so deceived they don’t even know this. You see that is what the spirit of deception will do to you, it will keep you blind. You will think that your okay and everything is fine but God has and will take His divine purpose off of you. Don’t get it twisted there IS ALWAYS a price to pay for disobedience. ALWAYS!!!!! You will not disobey God and get away with it, particularly when you know better. When you are spiritually mature in God He WILL hold you accountable for the what He has released to you.
IF YOU ARE READING THIS POST CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!!
Let’s begin my reading Deuteronomy 28 In your own time read the entire chapter.
Deuteronomy 28:1, 15
1. Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord you God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I commanded you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above the nations of the earth.
15. “But it shall come to pass if you do not obey the voice of the Lord, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statues which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and over take you:
The point is the requirement for the blessing was obedience to the voice of God. The consequence of disobedience to the voice of God, His commandments and His statues was the curse. When you read the text there were 14 results of the blessing. However there were 54 results of the curse. Yes the same God who said He’d bless you for obeying Him is the same God who said He would curse you for disobeying Him.
Proverbs 26 says a curse without cause (causeless) shall not come. Scriptures says when God curses you He will curse you to the third and fourth generation. So not only are you effected by the curse, your children’s children are then effected by the curse. All because of one thing that we all take fore granted and that is disobedience.
So now we see the importance of not only hearing the voice of God for yourself, but obeying the voice. God gives us the choice. If you choose wrong there is no one you can blame but yourself.
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NKJV)
19. I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. Read the entire chapter of Deuteronomy 30.
Principles of hearing the voice of God:
Remember that the devil was cast out of heaven because He wanted to be God. He had a position of authority in God’s kingdom. However he was not satisfied with his position of authority. He was cast out of heaven when rebellion was found in him. The point is the devil still wants to be God. If there is any area that Christians must be aware of is this. The devil will come as a angel of light. He knows how to manipulate himself in a way where he appears to be God. This is known as a familiar spirit. A familiar spirit is a deceptive spirit that has construed itself to look, sound and appear to be God.
Familiar spirits from the outward appearance look like God. They perform signs and wonders as God would. They can prophesy accurately as if it were God. They can preach like someone of God. Familiar spirits can speak in tongues like God. On the outward appearance they look and sound like God but a familiar spirit is still a demon from the pit of hell. It is amazing to me how so many Christians end up following demons because they have no prayer life so they consequently have no discernment.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (NKJV)
13. For such as are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
14. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
15. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according their works.
I can remember while in undergrad I was thousands of miles away from home. I remember meeting people very quickly. I met this girl who said she was a Christian. We would sit and talk about our dreams and most of all God. Shortly after meeting her it became very clear to me that she was not a Christian. Even though she shouted, spoke in tongues, said she loved God. She started making a mockery of my Christian holiness, implying that I had a religious spirit and it didn’t take all that. Folks there is a difference between a religious spirit and a relationship. I live in holiness out of my relationship with God. Anyway one day she invites me to her church. The whole church again shouts, speaks in tongues, lays hands on folk. On another day I met with the pastor of the church. He basically tells me it is okay to fornicate and have a man on the side and that God would forgive me. I later came to find out that the theology of the church was that God justified sin by His grace therefore we could sin as long as we asked for God’s grace. Now it is true that God’s grace is sufficient but His grace does not justify nor has it ever given us a license to sin. I observed the same members of this church shouting, speaking in tongues, awesome music ministry etc. Yet there were people in this church bound by all kinds of bondage including spirits of sexual perversion, homosexuality as so on. But on the outside everything looked fine. This is a prime example of a familiar spirit.
The only way you will truly know the voice of God is to pray and spend time in His word. Once you read His word, you begin to understand His characteristics, His will and most of all you will begin to understand His ways.
Some of the attributes of God are that He is holy. He is wisdom. He is love. So when someone is prophesying to in some kind of sin. That person is not hearing from God. They are prophesying under a demonic familiar spirit. God does not speak absent from His wisdom. God will never speak contrary to His word.
When God speaks He speaks in part. That means He may reveal to you His will, but not His time. Just because God told you, you are called to preach does not mean you post yourself on youtube, and start sending out letters to local churches inviting yourself to preach at their services. It is Gods responsibility to bring you to your prophetic place. He will open doors and make ways where there is no way. Remember God has an appointed time for everything. Luke 19:20, I Corinthians 4:5 He will always prepare you for what He has for you. He will not show you the appointed time. Act 1:7 You must be obedient to the process. If you step ahead of God you act in disobedience. If you delay Gods plan you still act in disobedience. This form of disobedience is still disobedience in Gods eyes, good intentions and all. This form of disobedience will still release you to the curse.
There is the will of God and there are His ways. God will reveal His will to you but it is in process where He will begin to reveal His way. God’s will has to do with His purpose or the big picture, the why. The way is the road map He takes you. For example if I want to go to the grocery story, the purpose would be for me to get groceries. I am not going to take my car to the grocery store to get it fixed. The grocery store was not created for that, neither does it serve that purpose. The way I take to get to the grocery store is the road map. It is the same with God. He will reveal to you His will (purpose) for your life. He will not reveal the way but that will come in time. In fact if God reveals to you what you have to go through to get to the promise you would never start the journey. So many Christians hear the will of God and think that is a license to move forward in their own way to get to Gods purpose. But not so! If God reveals to you His will but you don’t follow His way, then you are in jeopardy of walking out of the plan for your life. God will not finish what He never started. This is still disobedience that will lead to the releasing of the curse over your life.
So how to we know the ways of God? I heard a preacher say that we were not privy to the ways of God, only leaders were and the flock follow. This is not true. First Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV) 11. For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
So how do you know the ways of God? You seek Him. Through His process He will reveal Himself more and more to you. The reason why I am confident in knowing God and His ways is because I have been serving Him a long time. You just can’t tell me any old thing about what the Lord says. Because I know Him for myself. I know Him personally to be a God of honor and integrity. I know He would never disrespect me and lead me into confusion. This is the same God I talk to every day.
I Corinthians 2:10 (NKJV)
10. But God has revealed them to us through His spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yet the deep things of God.
11. For what man knows the things of man except the spirit of the man which is in him. Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
12. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely give to us by God.
So you see we have been given this awesome gift called the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit dwells in us and will reveal to us the mind, will and way of God. That’s why I always say you don’t have to go here, there and every where searching for a prophetic word. You have the Holy Spirit down on the inside of you waiting to reveal God directly to you. It is a shame to depend do much on a preacher for a word from God, when he or she has the same Holy Spirit you have.
Remember God will always speak to you in a way you can understand. He is not out to scare you. I once heard a preacher say if you are alone in a house and you hear this great bass voice saying, “My child come forth”. He said run that is not God. God speaks in a way you can understand. The more you grow in God, the more spiritual you become, the less likely you are to depend on others for a word from God. The more He will speak to you differently. God does speak through a clear and audible voice but that is not the only way He speaks. He speaks through dreams and visions. He speaks through His word. He will speak to you by way of your thoughts. Remember before you make any major life decisions that can alter and effect you for the rest of your life and those connected to you He will speak to you in a way that you understand. You will know that it is God with no doubt in your mind.
Many of you may know that I moved to North Carolina from Maryland. I knew for years prior to me actually moving that I would move to North Carolina. I remember even looking for jobs in North Carolina once I graduated from undergrad. I also looked at graduate schools in North Carolina. I even heard what city I would move to. But nothing ever panned out for years. I ended up attending a graduate school close to home. I just had to sit an wait for His timing. Then a year before I actually moved I heard God say, "prepare". So I did as best I could, still not knowing the when. Ironically I heard the devil say, “just pack up your bags and drive”. I knew instantly that was the devil and not God’s wisdom. It was God’s wisdom that I prepare. I still didn’t know much. I needed to know in my knower that this was His will. Then He spoke to me in an open vision that I will never forget. So yes even though I had a premonition, a thought of what was to come. I still had to wait for further instructions. It is important to note that I still got confirmation after I heard God for myself. Again men and women of God only confirm. No one should bring something knew to you. Even if they do you still need to ask God for confirmation as to whether or not this is His will. When I finally moved, yes I still had struggles because just because you have a word from God doesn’t mean you won’t be challenged. Since then I have grown in leaps and bounds since . I have been totally transformed. But had I not waited for further instructions I cannot tell you how discouraged, distraught and how I would have felt like a utter failure. I would have been sent back to my parent’s home in no time, having them look me in my eyes and say I thought you heard from God.
Beware of distractions.
So why do people have such a hard time knowing the voice of God? The number one reason is distractions. You got to many people in your ear telling you what thus says the Lord. I believe that God having me be so alone is one of the reasons why I hear from God with such clarity.
Clicks are detrimental to your ability to hear from God. If you don’t set boundaries with folks they will distract you.
Particularly to leaders if you have to many people who have access to you then you do have a problem. Eventually your ability to hear God with clarity is weaned away until you hear people more than God. Then you confuse the voice of people to be God’s. Remember Moses who had to set boundaries between He and the people. The anointing must be protected. The only people who should have intimate access to you are a few and I mean a few and who are at your level, are intercessors and most of all have no problem holding you accountable.
Moses again was a great leader to his people, but he had a problem listening to many of the people of Israel’s problems. In a way He was acting as a counselor constantly listening to the people of Israel problems. They looked up to him because when you are called to a leadership position people will naturally pull on you from different ways. Good thing for his father in law Jethro. Jethro observed Moses listening to the people from sun up till sun down scriptures say. Jethro says “this is to much for you, your going to wear yourself out”. Even in my secular training as a therapist we were taught the importance of professional ethics, self care and most of all appropriate boundaries. In this field when people are revealing to you the most intimate details of their lives and you are constantly dealing with other peoples issues this is a most. Then Jethro instructed Moses what to do and that was to appoint leaders who act as counselor or judges of the people. The point is Jethro’s resolve to Moses was that these people had to much access to Moses and would eventually wear him out. Jethro was someone who could give Moses wise counsel and direct Him. Yes God will use people to direct. I find it ironic that in verse 15 Moses says, “ the people come to me to inquire of God. When they have difficulty the come to me”. It is the same today often times people use other people as a means to hear from God instead of seeking God for themselves. Or when they don’t get an answer from God they seek man to answer for God. I know I sound like a broken record, but leaders confirm. Read the entire story for yourself in Exodus 18.
I also find it ironic out of all the people Moses was around the only other person who had intimate access to Moses was Joshua. Joshua was the only one aloud into the glory tent with Moses. Not Aaron, not his wife or children. A quiet, no name, insignificant person named Joshua. It was no mistake that Joshua would eventually lead the people into the promise land. Joshua 1, he started out being a servant.
It is important to note that the reason why Moses was not allowed to make it to the promise land was because of his own disobedience. Numbers 20:12 (NKJV) Then God said," to Moses and Aaron , Because you did not believe Me, to hallow me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.” God told Moses to speak to the rock and he hit the rock. Numbers 20:6-12. Deuteronomy 32:51,52 (NKJV) 51. “because you trespassed against Me among the children of Israel at the water of Meribah Kadesh , in the wilderness of Zin, because you did not hallow Me in the mist of the children of Israel. 52. “Yet you shall see the land before you, though you shall not go there, into the land which I am giving to the children of Israel. All because of disobedience he was not able to make it to the promise. Notice God's will was fulfilled just not through whom it was originally intended.
It leads us to an excellent point. You can see God gave the people of Israel chance after chance, but it appears that with Moses He didn’t. Because again God holds you at a higher standard the more he has released to you. That’s why the drug dealing sinner on the street has more grace than leaders in high positions.
The other reason you may not hear the voice of God is sin. Sin of any kind prevents you from hearing the voice of God.
Aoty not be able to hear from God. If you just got saved you may not be confident in your ability to hear from God.
Don’t get so caught of in people and their positions. They can be wrong. Sincere but wrong.
One of the main reasons you may not be able to hear the voice of God is simple. He just is not talking. You will have seasons in your life where He is quiet. You cannot force God to speak. Often times He is using those quiet times to test our obedience, to mature and to grow us. You would have no real faith if every time you had a problem He answered you immediately. That does not take faith. God has to mature us, make us strong. It is similar to the life of babies. When they are infants they need there parents for everything, eating, using the bathroom, basic needs. So every time they cry there is mom and dad to the rescue but as maturity takes place the children must learn to stand on their own, they become more and more independent
When I was a little girl like most I depended on my mom for everything and rightfully so. But now that I am a grown woman who lives miles away from my parents how ridiculous would it be if my mom picked out my clothes for me each morning, and called me every morning to wake up. Or if she worked to pay my bills every month. Or even if she sent me a months worth of cooked meals so that I could eat. That is absolutely absurd. I am a grown woman, with grown woman bills and responsibilities. My mother raised me. She will always be my mother and I will always be her child but the dynamics of our relationship has changed. I am mature and have my own responsibilities.
So it is with the kingdom of God. We have an inheritance. God has already released His kingdom to us. But our ability to begin to manifest His kingdom our inheritance is dependent upon his ability to be able to trust us with more responsibility. God will not release His kingdom authority to babes.The higher you go up the more challenging it is. If you are not mature in God, know His voice and understand His ways you will fall and be a complete failure. God does not want you representing Him or embarrassing Him or yourself all because you could not handle what He released to you.
Every college student knows that your senior year is harder than your freshman year. As a PhD student, your program is more intensive than your undergrad program. But it was the first level that prepared you for the next. By the way again you cannot expect to graduate if you have not passed all the test (not some) and met the requirements.
So God has a responsibility to perfect us, to mature us, to develop our character. This is what the process is for. The gifts are already there but it is the process that perfects the inner man not the gifts. That’s why you have singers who can sing the paint of the walls but are still on their way to hell. Your gift means nothing. Who are you when no one is looking. If you can’t have integrity behind close doors you won’t have integrity in public. If you can’t hear the voice of God for yourself, you certainly can’t hear His voice for other people.
Do yourself and other a favor. Respect God. Respect His people. Watch how you treat God’s people. He does not show favorites and will hold you responsible when you disrespect His people. Make sure you have clean hands and a pure heart. Don’t move forward, don’t move period until you hear from God for yourself. Don’t say you heard God when you didn’t. God is not the author of confusion. Never use your position of authority to abuse others.
Truthfully no human being who serves God can honestly say that they have never made a mistake or done something they thought was from God and was not. It is your level of humility and the ability to admit when you are wrong that truly shows your character.
Sometimes you got to just go to God and other people who may have been affected such as a spouse, friend, congregation, parents etc and say I am human, I made a mistake and I apologize. The details of who did what and who told you they heard from God and who you sought counsel from are irrelevant. A good man or woman simply admits when they are wrong. I for one don’t expect any one to be perfect. I know I am not. I do respect folks and hope that they respect me more when I just say, listen I made a poor choice I am sorry. Humility speaks volumes about character. However pride always precedes a fall. The difference between David and Saul is not because one was perfect both of them disobeyed God. However Saul was still saying I did the will of God. While David had sense enough to repent. Saul’s destiny and divine purpose ended because of this, while we are still reaping the benefits of David’s spirit of humility and ability to admit when he was wrong. Jesus is a descendent of David.
Just repent. Again repent is to ask for forgiveness. But you must stop what you are doing because if you repent but don’t turn in the opposite direction you are still in disobedience and have not come to true repentance. You’ll be so surprised how people will be so deceived by the devil they don’t even have sense enough to repent. You know you are under a spirit of deception then. Then they go a step further and accuse righteous brethren of being mean or judgmental. These people are only trying to save you from hell and life detached from your divine purpose other wise known as life outside of the garden.
This post will in no way guarantee that you will never intentionally or unintentionally make poor choices. I call them poor choices not mistakes. Mistakes are when you accidently make decisions not having all the information. A poor choice is when you have all the information, know the consequences but continue in foolishness anyway.
Even if you aren’t sure whether or not you made a poor choice, just going to God and saying Lord if this was not your will and I stepped out on you prematurely please forgive me. God honors the heart.
Remember God does not yell or scream. He will speak to you in a still small voice the best way to hear from Him to rid yourself of all the noise and get into the quiet place with Him. Psalms 91, I Kings 19:11-13.
Remember there are some answers that will only come through fasting and prayer.
I close with this warning.
II Timothy 3:1,5 (NKJV) Read the whole chapter.
1. But know this in the last days perilous times will come.
5. Having a form of godliness but denying its power, And from such people turn away.
II Timothy 4:2-4 (NKJV) read the whole chapter
2. Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, and with all long suffering and teaching.
3. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they heap up for themselves teachers.
4. And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (lies)
I have come to know that you can’t make people serve God. Some people no matter what you do would rather believe a lie than the truth. You can spend the rest of your ministry trying to convince people who don’t love or serve God to honor Him with their lives. But why would you want to?
According to this scripture you still have to speak the truth. According to Ezekiel chapters 3 and 4 when you don’t God will hold you responsible for their blood. I don’t want some else’s blood on my hands and if you are reading this post I believe that you concur.
We are at this time that Timothy spoke of. I also believe this is the time that God is releasing His kingdom to His true saints. But we had to go through the testing, and the trial of our faith. This is the time where we are seeing deception through out the body like never before. But I believe God has counter release for His people. Whenever there was trouble in the land it always at face value appeared that the enemy had the upper hand but God still has a remnant. I Kings 19:14, 18 Remember it is only a test. It is how you handle the test (passing) that qualifies you.
So beloved don’t get caught up in form or fashion. Deal with your issues. That is what the process is for and no one can say they have never had an issue. Repent if you have wronged someone. Repent if you have not. Repent if you have unintentionally offended someone. Again the details are irrelevant but the response is what matters. Forgive those who have offended you. Most of all do everything within your will to obey God, hear His voice. It is never okay to speak against someone to try to justify your actions or make yourself look better in mans eyes. If an injustice has been committed against you God will take vengeance.
DON’T MOVE TO THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT UNTILL YOU HAVE HEARD GOD FOR YOURSELF.
I encourage you to read my post entitled, The Glory and The Cloud. If you haven’t read it, if you have read it again. Just because you see the glory cloud doesn’t mean you move even though the glory is moving. You still have to wait for the voice (command) to tell you to move.
