John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Learning to clearly distinguish God’s voice is important. Instead of going through life blindly, we can have the wisdom of God guide and protect us. If you have sickness or disease, one living word from the Lord will instantly heal you. If you are in a financial crisis, the Lord knows exactly how to turn your situation around. It’s just a matter of hearing His voice. The Lord constantly speaks to us and gives us His direction. It’s never the Lord who is not speaking, but it’s us who are not hearing. If we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we enter into a relationship with Him. Jesus is our shepherd and as His sheep, we will able to recognize His voice.
God’s voice stills us, leads us, reassures us, enlightens us, encourages us, comforts us, calms us, and convicts us. Because God came so that we can have an abundant life and have it abundantly. He does not want our life to be destroyed.
