We are into our fifth week of an exhaustive study on the subject of how God still speaks to us today. We have thus far shown why it is absolutely Biblically sound to still expect God's guidance and voice in our personal lives. And we have studied a number of Biblical ways God uses as He guides, speaks to, and Influences His people. If you have missed any of the previous lessons in the series, we will briefly pull them all together at the end of this study and you can go back on Facebook or YouTube for more. This week we will draw the study to a close with one of the most controversial, often rejected and abused ways in which God Speaks: Dreams and Visions (how the Muslim and Mormon religions started).
For those who may just be joining our Great Adventure...We have spent the last three weeks exploring on of the most important and controversial topics of a Christian's life...How to discern God's Will in our lives!
We've studied far too much to review today...But here is the quick recap to bring us to date: It is Biblically sound to expect that God still Speaks…And Reveals His Will to His people today...Preparing our hearts and minds TO WANT AND DO His Will...Are far more important than worrying about HOW to hear Him!
We are in the middle of one of the most important and useful studies any true Christian could undertake: learning how to discern God's Will. Thus far, it has involved learning the importance and proper way of fasting in a disciple's walk with Christ and preparing our hearts and minds to want, hear, and do God's Will when we hear it. This being the single most important thing in our journey (ship) because we have to be surrendered to Him or Spirit led; like-minded in Christ walking in His Righteousness; hungry for His true will wherever that leads; and expectant that He will speak. And lastly, our previous lesson was focused on actually striving to begin hearing Him speak. First and foremost, through His Word (rudder), which is the foundation for testing all other Words we may hear. Secondly, by letting what you already know in His Word and about His Character be your guide to making the right decision (crow's nest), in your own discernment and will, for His glory and purpose, not your own. And thirdly, learning to walk expectantly and openly, listening for the Spirit Who literally indwells us at the ultimate cost (raise our sails). Because Scriptures promise that the children of God will be Guided by the One Who lives in us and does have the mind of God living in them. All of these ways of hearing God thus far are things we consciously strive to do in order to discern His Will.
