|How do you know when you are really hearing from the Lord, how do you discern His will. What resources are there that talk about this topic|
|Answer / Solution|
The best way to know the will of God is to know God, to have a genuine relationship with your Father in heaven. The relationship between a Christian and God is like the relationship of a father and his child. A child that spends little time with their father will not know their fathers will, they will have difficulty relating with their father, and will not recognize his voice. In contrast, a child that has a deep loving relationship with their father will know what brings joy to their father, and what brings sadness. They will many times develop the same likes and dislikes as their father, and they will be able to distinguish their fathers face and voice from those of others.
It is important to remember that God will never contradict Himself. He will never tell you to do something that goes against His Word, or His character. The Bible is the best test to use to determine if something is from the Lord or is God’s will. Ask yourself;
Does it contradict the Word, and the teachings of Jesus?
Does it go against God’s character?
Will it glorify the Lord, or will it bring reproach upon the name of Christ?
Does it have the appearance of evil?
Lastly, seek Godly counsel. It is important to seek the counsel of brothers and sisters in Christ.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
