How did you know that God was talking to you? I want to personally talk to God, not just the things that are in the Bible. I tried today and last night, but it didn't go like I thought it would. I do think that God provided me with a dream though. The main point of the dream is that I put God over school (that's what I did in the dream. Then, this morning, even though I was running late to school, I decided to take some time to pray. We made it three minutes early! It was a miracle! Praise God!I am hoping that even those that don't hear God might know that is not a good idea. Satan is much more sly than that though. He can quote scripture and get believers out of the plan of God real fast.
All things must line up with scripture, but not everything that is scriptural is God for us.
Kenneth Hagain thought it be nice if He started a prayer phone line where folks could call in for prayer. Sounded scriptural and a good idea. The Money situation started to go down hill though and He found out months later after seeking the Lord that the Lord never told him to start such a project.
A Pastor I worked with spent all kinds of money to start a christain drug program. I went with him to other programs and we checked out their success and what they did. Got tons of ideas and things that worked. It never set in my spirit right though.
Months later, after getting it all set up, nobody came, and no other agency would work with him. The other programs had lots of folks working with them from state and local drug rehabs.
I went to ask him one day after seeing him just come unglued........ I said, "Did God ever tell you to start a drug program?"
He said, I know it's the right thing to do and on my heart to do it........
I asked again......... "Did God, ever tell you to start a drug program?"
He said, "We are suppose to follow our heart, It's something I always wanted to do."
I asked again........... DID............ GOD........... Tell........ YOU.... TO.... START........... A........... DRUG.... PROGRAM?
He thought for a bit, and said, "No, I never heard God say exactly start a drug program."
I said, "well there is the answer to all that money you wasted and frustration."
Most often, if you read through scriptures like Naaham who wanted to wash in a different river or just have the man of God pray for his healing. God a lot of times sends us on directions we would have never thought of, or even want to do.
When something sounds good to me and scripture and something I would like to do.................... It's those things that you need to spend lots of prayer in.
The easy things are things I would never want to do. I hear God clearest there as I know it can't be the devil, and it sure would not be me.
One time God asked me to work in a country bar. I am a Christain, it's a bar, but worse of all, it's a country bar. I hate country music, can't stand it and it plays constantly at that bar.
I knew that was God as the devil sure does not want anointed believers in some bar he has control of. They hired me right away, got 3 born again, some more direction and God used me daily there. It was amazing despite a lot of crazy stuff that went on there.
One person I was sent there for, their grandma had been praying for years for him. It's just like God to answer prayer and send the workers.
I just wish it was not country music. It took grace to endure that.
I would suggest getting filled with the Holy Spirit......... His sheep HEAR His Voice and your suppose to be led by the Spirit of God. That is clear and difinitive Direction.
