Today’s Key Scripture (all references NKJV unless otherwise noted):

My sheep hear my voice.

—John 10:16, KJV

As you act more and more upon what God tells us to do, you will discover that He trusts you more and more with additional responsibilities. He knows He can share His heart’s desire—and His will—with you because He knows you will obey.

God speaks to you through prayer, reading God’s Word, words of prophecy, the testimony of others, and more.

Keep in mind that learning to hear God’s voice is a process. A relationship like this is exercised or strengthened through daily time together in prayer and reading His Word. You become acquainted with God. As you become intimate with Him, you will be better able to discern what He is telling you.

And as you grow spiritually, you will be able to discern even better what God is saying. You will discover that only after you act upon hearing His voice will God tell you what to do next. It sounds so blatantly simple, but it’s difficult for humans to accept such a transparently uncomplicated-yet-supernatural principle.

Don’t wait for Him to fill in all the blanks before you decide to obey. Act upon what you already know is God’s will, and make sure it lines up with His Word.

Begin by listening for His voice when you say, “Good morning, Holy Spirit!” Then learn to hear His voice throughout the day and night. Your life will never be the same!
