I can't hear God well if at all... I'm questioning if I have his spirit

#1
I've been saved since 2010..
I have been baptized...and I do speak in tongues...

I'm just confused as to why I don't hear his voice.

My friend said his sheep hear his voice.

Either I'm not a sheep or I need to be rebaptized... And filled.

I don't know what to do..

But I do know I should be being led

It makes me wonder if I'm a sheep or if I just snuck in some how :/

Or if I'm supposed to be saved.

Maybe this is why it's so hard.

Feelings can be great for inner confirmation, but their absence does not imply someone not being saved.

If you have accepted Christ, and that is not a matter of feeling but of inner choice, then the authority of God's word should gurantee to you that you are His.

autumn oddity ,
Faith is Key. That means Believing What God has Already Said.

Forgive me but your "mouth" is working against you. Your enemy puts these questioning thoughts and feelings in you and then - You autumn oddity - Are giving life to your enemies will for you. he needs you to speak his will so he can have legal right to get in there and work against you......AND you are giving it to him.

You seem to be trying way to hard to hear some great Revelation or complete answer to a situation or course in life.

Slow down and let and allow Him to do so.
Even in HEARING it's going to be baby steps until you train yourself to KNOW His voice.

Secondly and most important.......
EXAMINE YOUR LIFE....has God told you something and you have been playing with it, first believing it was God then questioning if it was and all the long deep down inside you know it was God but you allow your desires to lead you over what He said.......
That Will Hinder your Hearing.......
Fix it....

Girl... the enemy is having a great time of harassing you. Now he has you believing your possibly not God's sheep... yikes.

Yes all God's children are His sheep (that be you!) The Bible says the evidence is that you have the Holy Spirit within you. So your speaking in tongues is proof your saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit.

The reason you can't hear.. is because you keep speaking and convincing yourself you can't hear. Your grabbing hold of the fear... instead of how much God loves you.

Find the peace of God... and let the fear go :)
God loves you soooooooo much. He's not letting you go that easy

Read your Bible, pray, and then write down or draw what God is saying to you. Make a special time to do this, maybe first thing in he morning or before you go to bed.
Do you have a Bible and are you reading it or are you just leaving it on the shelf? Have it open right where you are. Choose a book to read from the Bible. I would say start with the gospels or Proverbs. Or whatever one takes your fancy, I started from Genesis and read the whole way through.

God speaks through His word.

If reading is too hard for you, try listening to an audio Bible. You can download copies for free online. Ask God to help you, thing is, He likes it when we ask him for help, thats what Hes here for. JUst say to Him, Lord I need your help, Im stilla bit lost and dont know what to do. Please guide me eith your wisdom every day. Thank you Jesus for saving me.

You have been saved and are a sheep you had just been far from God come closer to Him. Thats why you havent been hearing Him. Theres a story in the Bible about two sisters, Mary and Martha. Both loved the Lord but it was Mary who sat at Jesus feet and listened to him while Martha was so busy doing all the housework that she got mad when Mary didnt come and help her. BUt Jesus said it was Mary had chosen the most important thing, which was to sit close to Jesus and listen to what he had to say.

Sometimes we have to drop everything we are doing because hearing from God and receiving his teaching and instruction is the most importsnt thing, the housework and everything else other people have asked you to do can wait!

I don't want to be a vessel for destruction.

:(

I'm trying ...I really am.
Autumn, I don't remember seeing anything in your posts about scripture that speaks to you. If you would be willing, please post some of your favorite verses that speak to you with a little bit of info on what it means to you.
Or, if you are studying any specific subject in the Bible, what is it and what have you learned?
I think for you this might put better thoughts in your head and get you away from discouragement. Your brothers and sisters in Christ will be here to help you out. :)
