how do I recognize His voice?
I’m so excited to share a fresh revelation from God! I am going to try to present it in installments because I fear going overboard in my excitement!
Emmanuel is the name of God to indicate His constant presence in our lives. It’s an important name as it reveals His relational nature. God enjoys His children and desires intimate relationship with us. But we need to understand that, “God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever- the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you… the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everthing I have said to you” (John 14: 16-17, 26).
The above scripture is key for the believer who desires to hear the voice of God. God is with us, and He is speaking and leading us. We only need to know how to recognize His voice. Those who walked with Jesus in the time of His earthly ministry also had to learn to follow the Spirit’s voice. Jesus completed His mission to bring salvation and deliverance to all who receive Him, and in the days leading up to His return to the Father, He made some very revealing appearances to His followers. We will look at three encounters closely to glean understanding about walking with an unseen God.
