Transforming Your Prayer Life-When God Is Speaking-Part 5             

April 8, 2015

When you are not a spirit-filled Christian, you will live your life not being accustomed to being guided by the Holy Spirit. You will think it is odd to live your life guided by the Spirit of God. My friend, if you are not living the way Jesus did, guided by God the Father, listening to Him, knowing when you hear Him speaking, then you are wide open to obeying the voice of your conscience and opening yourself up to even hearing from Satan or one of his demons leading you the wrong way. Therefore, you will have to live by your feelings, guided by impulses, ruining your life and God’s reputation because people cannot see the beauty of Jesus in you when you are self-willed and not walking along with God. This will be your mode of operation, your frame of reference, and it will be the way you live your life, and it will become your habit to read your will into God’s plan for your life. Even as a Christian, you and I can live our lives reading our fleshly desires into God’s will for our lives, and then, living our lives trying to convince others and ourselves that this is God’s will. This, my friend, is why you and I need to know when God is speaking.
