My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
You may ask: “How do I discern and hearken to the voice of the Holy Spirit?” If as a Christian, you find it difficult to discern the voice of the Spirit, it’s not because His voice is weak when He speaks. It’s because you haven’t trained your spirit to discern His voice. It’s possible to train yourself to discern the voice of the Spirit, and here are a few thoughts that’ll help you.
First, you must develop a voracious appettite for the Word. Study the Word and know it for yourself. The voice of God’s Spirit is made known to you through the written Word. Secondly, train your spirit to respond to God by acting on the Word quickly. When you receive instructions or counsel from God’s Word, don’t delay; act quickly. That’s learning to train your spirit.
Thirdly, praying according to God’s Word is very vital. Prayer helps your spirit to become a dependable receptacle of God’s ideas, visions and promptings. Pray mostly with the spirit, in other tongues. The more you do, the more sensitive your spirit will be to His voice.
Finally, desire spiritual things—things that matter to God—from your heart and pursue them. The proof of desire is pursuit. Engage yourself with activities that’ll edify your spirit such as soul winning, participation in church meetings and services etc. Commit your resources; time, money and attention to the things that matter to God.
Dear Father, thank you for the vital union I have with you. The Bible declares that anyone who’s joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. I am one spirit with you; therefore I’m able to hear and understand your words, and I give no place to the flesh, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
