Part 4: God's Word makes His Voice distinct

(This is part 4 of 10 parts in this class)


You have to come to recognise the Spirit's voice and to do so as easily as you recognise the voice of a dear loved one.

How can this happen? It will happen as you daily take time to hear God's written word speaking to your heart. In this way you'll become familiar with the very accent and texture of the Spirit's voice. You'll soon be recognising His voice because daily you'll have been hearing with the ears of your heart His recorded voice.

The written Word of God in the Bible is a recording of the voice of God's Spirit as the holy men and women of God heard it. They wrote it down so you could receive it today into your heart.


When the Holy Spirit breathes life into the written Word for you and you welcome it into your heart that Word will live there in your heart. It will give you power to discern what or whose voice is arising within you. The Bible says,

The Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 - NKJV


The Word of God in you sets apart in your life whatever is soulish in origin from whatever is spiritual in origin. It also sets apart whatever is fleshly in origin. The result is that you know what or whose voice you are hearing.

You'll recognise the voice of your soul. You'll recognise the voice of your flesh. You'll recognise the voice of your spirit and the Holy Spirit. You'll also have discernment of the purposes and intentions of what is arising in your heart by the Holy Spirit.
