How To Hear From the Father

As I was working on some messages for this coming week of being a candidate at two different Churches God impressed upon me the truth of listening to Him.  This is essential if we are going to discern His will in these situations.

He first reminded me of John 10:27, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”  Growing up on the farm we dove cattle different places based upon our needs.  The sheep were led and never driven.  Trying to drive sheep is like trying to nail jello to the wall.  Impossible!

When leading the sheep they will respond to the master’s voice and not a stranger.  This is good counsel for you and I.  We need to listen to the voice of our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ.  Everyone else is just noise.

The next time you are in need of counsel maybe you should take time and listen for the voice of the Father and get your guidance that way.

So, how are you doing?
