7 Questions to Help You Recognize the Voice of the Shepherd
Does it bring peace?
Even when the Lord brings conviction, He also brings peace. Often, we have anxiety over situations when we have failed to listen to His voice. Though we will face times when we are unsure which path to take, the Lord speaks calm, steadiness, patience, endurance, and peace over our circumstances.
This is why a person in the worst trial of their life can still have joy and peace. Simply put, they have made a choice to follow the Shepherd’s voice and trust Him for the journey ahead. When we learn to fully trust the Lord, we can feel immense peace and a sense of rest when He leads us to do something—even when it is uncomfortable.
If the voice speaking to you causes anxiety, depression, or fear, it might not be the Lord’s voice.
