Tuned In

God speaking is just a bible thing
God is speaking today
Conversations in the air - cell phones, tv’s
We just have to tune in - John 10
Got to know who Jesus is - quote
If you have trouble hearing God speak, you are in trouble at the very heart of your Christian experience.
Henry Blackaby
Tuning In
vs 25-30
Three things in this passage I want us to see
God wants us to know His voice
Tuning In
God can speak any way at any time - writing on a wall, donkey
5 ways generally God speaks
The Bible - primary - all else must fall in line with it
not magic but trust - sheep and shepherd
2 Timothy 3:16 CSB
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness,
Tuning In
Authority - pastors, parents , government, bosses, spouses
Ultimately God is our authority
Key - if you can’t be under authority, you shouldn't be in authority
Tuning In
Godly is key word here - easy to go out and find people to agree
Look for humble people, care more about your future than feelings
Proverbs 13:20 CSB
The one who walks with the wise will become wise, but a companion of fools will suffer harm.
Tuning In
Still small voice - nudge, a thought that pops in
Test it - run it by others and scripture - why
We do rationalize our actions - lie to ourselves
Tuning In
Circumstances -open door / closed door
Easy must be from God - hard - closed the door
Excuse to be lazy and disobedient
Galatians 6:7 CSB
Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a person sows he will also reap,
Tuning In
Back to the three things
1 - He wants you to know
2 -To know His voice you have to spend time with the Shepherd
Shepherding in Middle East - carry baby sheep on shoulders daily so they would learn the voice
Tuning In
Do the general things God tell us we will know the Specific things
God’s will/plan - go to church, pray, serve
We do the the daily stuff we will be ready for the big decisions
There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God; those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it.
