“For as many as are Led by the Spirit of God, these are Sons of God.”Romans 8:14
One of the major attributes in the life of a believer is the ability to hear God and discern divine leading. It’s an inherent functionality in the believer and it so ought to be.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. [Romans 8:14]
It is not possible to be led by someone if you can’t hear or recognize the person’s voice.
The relationship between God and the believer is a father-child relationship and like our earthly fathers give instructions, advice and guidance, God does the same. He talks to us and it’s important that we are able to hear, discern and follow God’s leadings.
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. [Jeremiah 33:3]
A lot of times people go to God to pour out their hearts without listening for what is on the father’s heart. Imagine the person who set an examination teaching you what to write in the exam. The God who knows all things, who sees all things Is your father and is willing and able to guide you through life.
Realize that for you to discern God’s leading and mind on things like marriage, career path and major life’s decisions, you must have consistently heard and obeyed his leadings on seemingly small things. This is the training aspect of sharpening your earing or discernment as a believer.
The nudging to sow a seed, not to go to a certain place, to serve a certain person or ministry, to minister to someone and lots more. Obey them consistently, master it, and you will find it easier to hear and obey God’s leadings on major things.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: [John 10:27]
This is how to know that you’re a sheep. You hear and follow. God always speaks, pay attention to his voice.
