THE VOICE OF GOD

Aug 29, 2021

Psalms 25:14
“The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.”

The difference between any two believers is in the secret that has been unveiled to them.

As long as that secret is still closed to you, you remain in darkness. It’s the reason why one of the things you need to pay attention to when you are; praying, seeking God, fasting is your hearing.

It’s not so much what you tell God but rather that which God tells you and you act on it that will change your life.

Many believers know how to talk to God but haven’t perfected the art of picking information from God and acting on it. That’s why we see many people pray but there is hardly any change in their lives because they have not yet learned to download the secret things of God.

Deuteronomy 29:29
“The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to our children forever, that [we] may do all the words of this law.

The instruction you obey is what releases the blessing into your life.

That instruction comes to you as the voice of God.

The secret things belong to God. As long as it’s still a secret, it belongs to God but the revealed things belong to the sons of men.

If it is revealed, then it belongs to you for obedience and manifestation. Only those things that are still secrets belong to God.

“The secret of the Lord is with those who have the fear of God.”Psalms 25:14

What is fearing God?

  1. To depart from evil Proverbs 16:6
    “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.”
  2. To Crown the word of God both the written and the Rhema as the lord of your life Isaiah 66:2
    “My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them is mines. I, the Lord, have spoken! “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.”

God’s secrets is the one that brings the distinction in people’s lives.

1 Corinthians 2:7
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory:”

The instructions that God gives you is for the manifestation of His glory in your life.

Proverbs 25:2
“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings to search out a matter.”

This is what is responsible for difference among the Saints.

John 8:32
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

When the truth is revealed to you, it brings the measure of liberty it carries into your life.

Liberty is a function of knowing the truth

John 17:17
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

When this truth is manifested in your life it produces liberty.

Romans 8:21
“Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”

One of the primary ministries of the Holy Spirit is to unveil the secrets of your life.

Job 29:4
“As I was in the days of my youth when the secret of God [was] upon my tabernacle;”

The Job became the richest and greatest man in the east because of the secret of God that was upon his tabernacle.

One thing you must pay attention to in addition to your praying, fasting, and walk with God is the voice of God which brings to you the secret things of God which elevate, distinguish, and ushers you into His glory.

The Lord asked Jeremiah what do you see? (Jeremiah 1:11)

Don’t make any decision until you have heard God’s opinion on that matter.

If you have not heard the voice of God on the matter, it’s better to maintain the status quo.

The greatest asset in a life of a believer is the voice of God.

Deuteronomy 28:1
@And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:”

The blessings of God have been conditioned to harkening to the voice of God.

The children of Israel walked in a dry land because the pillar of fire and cloud by day went before them. (Exodus 14:24-30)

They were sustained for 40 years in the wilderness because the Holy Spirit was leading them.

In times like this where wickedness is every where you turn , the voice of God is very critical in your life as a believer, in your walk with God.

The Lord asked Adam in the garden of Garden who told you? whose instructions did you obey ?(Genesis 3:11).

Every evening the lord would come to talk with Adam and Eve but what happened?

The instruction you listen to and follow is key to your lifting or your falling.

On the altar the most important thing is not what you tell God but what God tells you.

Every instruction of God is designed for your profiting
The path you take determines your profiting

Isaiah 48:17-18
“Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I [am] the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way [that] thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:”

The key is following His instructions and commands (John 14:15-18).

Walking and practicing the life of Holiness will draw his voice into your life.

You must become a lover of truth and Holiness to draw the voice of God into your life that will reveal the secret things of God

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
