God gives extraordinary encounters to some people because those encounters are by extension, evangelical mediums for miracles in the lives of people. 1 Tim 1:15
It doesn’t have to be spectacular for it to the spiritual. Learn to accept and embrace the ways by which God speaks to you. It is a sin to despise the things God says because it doesn’t seem spectacular to you.
Many times God makes things spectacular for people because of their unbelief. 1 Kings 19:11
In pursuing the spectacular we seem to have despised the supernatural.
• Visions are not infallible.
• Visions can be fabricated.
• The devil can mimic them. The devil can’t mimic an internal witness. If the Spirit is at work in you, a nudge is enough.
How God leads:
God’s primary instrument of guidance is his word. Psalm 119:105. The word of God is an instrument for dimensions. The word of God corrects us. James 4:3
There’s a type of leading that only believers have (Rom 8:13-14). If you don’t appreciate the small leading of God in your life you won’t appreciate the spectacular ones.
Start appreciating the tiny leadings of God in your life. Gal 5:16-18. The biggest leadings are the ones that make you walk in the will of God.
How can I hear God?
👌🏾 Persuasions- These can be explained as strong nudges Acts 14:8-9
👌🏾 Restrictions- For some reason, you know what to do and what not to. Even if you can’t explain it, don’t ignore it!
👌🏾 Ideas and Passions- Phil 2:13
How do I know if it is my human passion?
• When you pray about it, the passion reduces instead of increasing.
• Investigate the motives.
👌🏾 Ease- even when it is something difficult, there’s ease inside.
If you follow all these you will arrive at God’s plan for your life.
