Preacher: Alex Adegboye | Series: Voice of The Lord | When people are faced with difficult issues in their lives, they tend to go around trying to fix the problem on their own but the truth of the matter is that it is only God that can completely solve our problems. Actually, many of the things we pray for have been done, but the challenge is how to navigate our ways into receiving the answers.
There are a lot of lives that are destroyed because they listen to the wrong voice. God speaks; the devil speaks; you also speak to yourself and there is also the voice of other people. In a world that is filled with babel of voices, there is God’s voice and it is distinct and unique from other voices.
1 Corinthians 14:10, There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
Except you are a bastard, there is no reason God will not speak to you. The voice of God can be heard in our spirits, in our minds and through circumstances and situations. The Holy Spirit can make you know things that are not written in words. When you see the sun rise in the morning and go down in the evening, it will point you to God.
Psalm 19:1-3, The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
The primary assignment of the Holy Spirit is to lead us into all truth. The coming of Jesus Christ gives us a judicial access to the truth. But more than judicial access, we need an experiential access that is carried out by the Holy Spirit.
John 16:13, Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Points on God’s Voice:
1) The voice of the Holy Spirit is the most distinct and clearest voice.
2) The voice of the Spirit is filled with living potential because all things were made by it.
3) God spoke and He is always speaking; His voice is eternal continuum.
4) The voice of God is the only force in nature and all nature is filled with His power.
PART 2 IS HERE: Voice of The Lord (2)
All nature exists because of God’s power embedded in them. Things that are physical take their source from the voice of God. Nothing heard the voice, and nothing became something. At His voice, chaos turned to order; darkness turned to light. God spoke to clay and clay became a man; He spoke to man and man returned back to clay. The challenge for us is to make our problem hear the voice of God; every problem will dissipate when they hear the voice of God.
God is a speaking Spirit; the Bible is God’s mind expressed in words.
