As Christians, we know the importance of having a close relationship with our Heavenly Father. But sometimes we allow the circumstances of life to pull us away from God. In these moments, it’s easy to lose His voice. In these moments, we vigilantly seek God, but in return only sense His silence. And this silence can be frustrating, disheartening, even agonizing. There are times when we will seek God for answers, cry out for His help and relief and still hear nothing. Hearing God is essential to building an intimate relationship with Him and learning to clearly distinguish God’s voice is invaluable. But as easy as it is for us to speak to Him, most Christians have a hard time listening to God and hearing His voice. This is not the way God intended it to be. The truth is if we don’t hear His voice, we will get totally lost in our own circumstances and be more vulnerable to the Enemy’s attacks. If we want to have a healthy relationship with God, learning to discern His voice is vital. Here are six ways to distinguish God’s voice from the circumstances of life.
