The third and final way to test if you’re hearing God is the one I’ve been teasing as the most important. Did what you hear contradict scripture?
This is unbelievably crucial.
God is NOT a hypocrite.
God does NOT contradict Himself.
Study the Word of God and make absolutely sure that what you think you’re hearing from God goes along with the Bible.
Sadly an example I’ve heard a few times is when a person is in sin they say, “I feel like God told me He wants me happy”.
That is completely unbiblical and God would never do that.
God is not calling you to sin or live against His Word. He doesn’t have a new message that will change scripture.
Matthew 24:35 (ESV), “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
God’s Word is eternal and He is calling you to righteousness, repentance and submission to His Word.
If God speaks to someone it will coincide with His Word not go against.
If you’re unsure if what you hear is Biblical than you need to read your Bible.
Remember John 1:1 (ESV), “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
The Word of God is the most important way to test if you’re hearing from God.
That’s the bottom line.
Study His Word and you will hear from God every day no matter what.
Have a Blessed Week,
