Daily Devotion

Yesterday we introduced a devotion series by Victoria Riollano that originally appeared in an I Believe.com article.

Today we bring you the first of the “7 Questions to Help You Recognize The Voice of The Shepherd”

Does it line up with the Word?

The first way to know if God is speaking or not is to align the voice you hear with the Word of God. The truth is, God will not go against His word. He will not speak to you in a way that would cause Him to negate what He’s already said or that would contradict His holiness.

For example, God would never tell a woman that someone else’s husband is supposed to be hers. In the same way, God won’t encourage you to do anything that we see reflected in Galatians 5:19-21.

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

These things go against the will of God. If you feel the urge to participate in them, your own flesh or the enemy is leading you.
