Discerning the Voice of God

Discerning the voice of God: How to recognize when God is speaking by Priscilla Shirer

This was perhaps one of the older books I have read for Unvale the Prophetic: 2012, however it is just as relevant for today as it was 7 years ago. 

Right at the beginning of the book Priscilla impresses upon the reader the purpose of her book.  The purpose of her book is to assist us on our journey of hearing the voice of God.  In doing so she gives guidelines, which are helpful however not to followed like a check list.  The reason that they work is because God does speak!  It is not that you’ve done everything right.  God speaks because He loves his people and He wants to be in relationship with them. 

Priscilla shares about her own story but continually backs up her story with scripture.  There are many reminders and challenges throughout this book however some of my favorite bits are below:

“One of the most common reasons why we don’t hear from God is perhaps the most obvious; We’re not listening.” (pg 21)

“Peace is not only an element of His character; it’s evidence of His presence.” (Pg 107)

“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring.  Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the lord” Psalm 27:14 AMP (pg 197)

Hearing from God 101 requires us to listen, sounds basic but not always easy in our everyday life. 

Peace is something that the entire world is really searching for.  We search and search, however, if we look to our Father in heaven, spend time in his presence then we will know a peace that blows us awayJ.

I love that Priscilla encouragers her readers to be expectant.  We have an awesome God, who loves us, wants to be closer to us, He speaks to us and that He is always working, even if we can’t see it yet.  (see Habakkuk)

This book is a good read balancing Priscilla’s stories with scripture.  She presents challenges she has found, ways to overcome (usually submitting to God) and an awe of how great our God is!
