Knowing God's Voice

By Dr. Charles Stanley

Does God still speak to us, or did He stop with the apostles? If possible, how do we learn to hear His voice? These are common questions, and thankfully they have clear answers. (Continue reading Knowing God's Voice.)

 

How will I know God’s answer to my prayer?

By Dr. Charles Stanley

 God often answers prayer in the following ways:

            1.  “Yes, you may have it.”
            2.  “No, that is not good for you.”
            3.  “Wait, I have something better for you.”
            4. “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Cor. 12:9).

    sometimes i feel like an alien, I have read the bible through a few time and nearing the end for this time.I accepted Christ in 1973. I have listened to you on every opportunity.but i can;t find my walk with Jesus. i went to churches and i don't get the warmth that i receive from you in yur messages.May God richley bless you dr. stanley. because of you i haven't given up and i'll keep on listening and prayer for me that
    God will open that door of understanding so i can serve Him to.I am 71 and have ms etc so my life is coming closer to ending. and i just want to love the Lord. Keep on sharing his word and making it come alive rather than just a book of words. thank you for your dedication to teaching us less fortunate.

    I get so confused as to whether it's GOD in HIS ultimate wisdom instructing me or if it's me telling me what I want to hear. Sometimes I can't believe HE will let me have what I want. But why not? He loves me & wants me to be happy. Just something that I have to get over. At times I ask GOD to instruct me so I open my BIBLE for instruction. Sometimes it's so far off the wall, I'll try again for another verse.

    My son recognizes Dr. Stanley's voice anywhere...because it was his voice that I listened to every morning on the radio while I was pregnant. I love Intouch. It has literally saved my life. May God continue to honor and favor you and yours and bless this amaizing ministry.

    This is very helpful to me because I have always wondered do God really speak to me.

    He speaks to us in His Son; the Word...no longer gives visions, prophecies, hunches, etc. Read Hebrews 1:1-4. If you want to hear from God, read you Bible. If you want to hear from God audibly, read your Bible out loud." Justin Peters

    As humans we are naturally "double-minded", however this passage gives true insight and enlightenment to knowing the voice of God. It's so true you have to have coversations with God in order to understand His voice.

    A wonderful message by a true giant in the spiritual world. Thank you Dr. Stanley. It's a message I've heard hundreds of times before but at some point it is really "heard". I think it all comes down to how willing am I to submit myself to what God is saying. It might mean giving up something I feel I need to control. And as I write that and hear myself say it, that truly sounds like a ridiculous reason to not be getting the full benefits of hearing what God has to say. Satan tries to edge his way in to every corner of my life to keep me from reaping the full benefits. In the name of Jesus Christ, flee from me, Satan........flee.

    I'm so glad that God brought you into my life. Dr. Stanley I have turned to you to help me work with God and turn my life around.

Thank You and God bless you all.

    While I'm going through some of the most difficult challenges in my life, turning to you has been a great asset.. Ipray that all who see this will pray for me and my family. I used to be a passive christian , but through your teachings I'm learning to draw closer to God. Thank you and God bless you. You are a great inspiration.

    Thanks, Dr Charles for this insightful and helpful teaching. I watch you every Sundays in NZ and just love your weekly program. I do have a few questions which I would appreciate your help on. My understanding of the Holy Spirit is that the Holy Spirit is Gods power and helper for his believers. I have not been able to find any scripture that supports the belief that the Holy Spirit as an individual, like God and Jesus. Rather the Godhead consists of only two individuals, only, God and Jesus. I have also not been able to find any scripture at all which supports the idea or term 'trinity!'Your advice and clarification would be most helpful. Holly :)
