ALL EARS Part 4: How To Recognize God’s Voice

January 24, 2021

John 10:3-5 

“The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”

Matthew 16:15-18 

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.”

Matthew 16:22-23 

Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan!”

1 John 4:1 

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God…

Proverbs 14:12 

There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.

1. Does it line up with the Bible? 

Matthew 19:3-6 

Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” Jesus replied, “Haven’t you read…”

Luke 21:33

And though all heaven and earth shall pass away, yet my words remain forever true.

2. Will it make me more like Christ? 

Philippians 2:12 

…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,

2 Corinthians 10:5

We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

James 3:17-18 

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

3. Does Godly counsel agree? 

Proverbs 12:15 

The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.

Proverbs 19:20-21 

Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.

4. Do I have peace?

1 Corinthians 14:33 NKJV 

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace…

Philippians 4:6-7 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

John 10:4 

When he gets them all out, he leads them and they follow because they are familiar with his voice.
