GOD IS EVER TALKING TO MAN…ONLY THAT MAN OFTEN TIMES DON’T LISTEN! GOD REALLY WANTS YOU TO HEAR HIS VOICE
WE ARE ENTITLED TO HEAR GOD EVERY SECOND OF OUR LIVES GOD DOESN’T SPEAK TO US THROUGH QUIVERS IN THE LIVER. HEARING GOD’S VOICE IS AS NATURAL AS HEARING A FRIEND TALK TO YOU! (JOHN 10: 3-5)
WE HAVE ALL HEARD FROM GOD ATDIFFERENT POINTS INOUR LIVES, ONLY THAT WE DID NOT TAKE NOTE!
COMMUNICATION IS A TWO-WAY AFFAIR. OFTEN TIMES WE PRAY AND DON’T LISTEN! POST YOUR REQUESTS AND WAIT FOR A REPLY!!! WE USUALLY RUN TO GOD WHEN WE FEEL LIKE, NOT BECAUSE WE HAVE A STEADY RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM! ONLY HIS SHEEP WILL IDENTIFY HIS VOICE
THE STATE OF THE HEART/MIND, HOW CONFUSED ARE YOU? WHY DO YOU WANT TO HEAR HIM? (doing the right things for the wrong reasons) DON’T GET STEREOTYPED ABOUT GOD, HE IS A DYNAMIC AND VERSATILE GOD! E.G BALAAM (num 22:20-32)

THE HOLY SPIRIT(ROMANS 8:14)BEING LED BY THE SPIRITBEING CONVICTED BY THE SPIRITJOHN 16:8
When talking about the Holy Spirit, Jesus employed imagery taken from the courtroom. The Holy Spirit within us, he said will be like a lawyer - sometimes acting as a prosecutor and sometimes acting as a defense advocate.1. The Holy Spirit in prosecutor mode comes to us in order to gently "convict" us where we are falling short of what God requires. Ever had a pang of conscience? That was the action of the Holy Spirit in your life.2. But most of the Holy Spirits activity is as our advocate who comes alongside us, stands alongside us and defends us. What a friend he can be. One of the other names given to the Holy Spirit is counselor: he counsels us when we need not just support but also insight, good judgment and wisdom.
