Today, we’re considering what we can KNOW.
Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him. (John 9:31 NKJV)
Then he said, “The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth.” (Acts 22:14 NKJV) – Ananias spoke this to Paul after he prayed for Paul to receive his sight.
… having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself … (Ephesians 1:9 NKJV)
We may claim these promises for ourselves. God has:
- Chosen us (Acts 22:14; 1 Peter 2:4) – We’re precious to Him.
- Caused us to know His will (John 9:31; Acts 22:14; Ephesians 1:9) – God shares mysteries with us.
- Made us know His voice (Proverbs 20:12; Acts 22:14; John 10:27; 18:37) – What an honor it is to know His voice!
- Promised that we’ll see the Just One – Jesus (Acts 22:14; Matthew 26:64; Mark 14:62; Luke 7:22; 8:35) – This is a glorious promise.
We belong to the Lord Jesus; we are set apart and made holy because of that fact. We may trust Him to reveal His will to us in every circumstance; and we can accurately and clearly hear His voice, if we will train our ears to listen. If what you “hear,” agrees with the Bible, you can be reassured that you’ve heard from God!
How do you train your ears to hear Him? Read, meditate, and study the Bible, which is the Word of God. The better that you know the Word, the easier it will be for you to hear His voice, because He will never contradict His Word.
Rejoice in your sweet relationship with the God who is more than enough! Hallelujah!
