Revelations During My Morning Drive (Feb 26, 2013)

(a re-post of something I wrote back in 2013)

I was asking God about how to deal with some challenging people at work. He told me "You can't change them, only I can. You need to pray for them and leave the rest to me."

More revelation: God told me "People will ask you 'how do you know for sure that it's God talking to you?' You can tell them that, the more you talk to Me, the more you know Me. And the more you know Me, the more you know My voice. My Spirit is upon you, and It guides you into all truth."

Then He reminded me of John 16:13 (Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.)

We know that, if a voice talks to us, if we're unsure whether it's God talking to us, we can ask God if it was Him, and to confirm it in our hearts. We've seen on so many occasions that God will repeat what He said, some times many times, until we finally know in our spirit that it's Him. And that confirmation comes from Him! Praise God - How awesome is that?!  John 10:27 says "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me..."

You know the old phrase "let your conscience be your guide"?  Well, for a believer, it's always "let God's Spirit be your guide".  When it's not, we KNOW where our thoughts are coming from!

Another revelation: The bible says "let your requests be made known unto God" (Philippians 4:6). It doesn't say "let your 'needs' be made known unto God"; God already knows our needs (Matthew 6:8). If we struggle about a need, I really believe we are to either give it to God and not take it back, or we need to ask Him how He wants us to deal with it.
