Have you ever been around someone who says that God is always telling them. . .this or that?

Let me quickly say that I’m not in any way necessarily criticizing or condemning those who say such.  Because I know from personal experience that God not only does but desires to speak to us.

Does the enemy use those to whom He speaks or hears His voice make you feel like you somehow don’t measure up spiritually?

I can tell you without equivocation. . . God would never do that.

Galatians 6:4 in the Classic Amplified Bible says::

“But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor.”

Don’t worry about what others say. . .God said to them.  Just be concerned about yourself and the ways God can use to direct you in the path He would have you follow.

Here are seven ways to get God’s personal direction for your life.

First, God will lead you through His Word.

Your Perception Generally Becomes Your Reality

Did you know that the way you perceive God can keep you from knowing the truth about Him? It’s true.

Your perception of a person, if it is wrong, will keep you from seeing him or her as they really are. That is the reason I make this statement:

You will have the God you perceive.

If you perceive Him as a poor God, you will always think He is trying to get money from you. But when you understand He is a rich God, you will realize He is trying to get money to you not from you.

Your perception of God and His relationship to your financial status will cause you to see Him in one of two ways: He will be either Jehovah Needy or Jehovah Jireh.

According to the Bible, God is Jehovah Jireh and stands ready and able to prosper and abundantly bless you beyond all you can imagine or think.

He is not Jehovah Needy, standing with His hand out trying to get all you have for his own selfish need.

Here is the bottom line. You are a living epistle (letter) that is being read by every unsaved person who observes your life.

… you yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody. 2 Corinthians 3:2, Amplified

If the God you perceive from the teaching you have received is a needy God, all who observe you will perceive your God to be needy or greedy, and they will have no desire to know him.

However, if the God you perceive from a correct understanding of His Word is a God who abundantly blesses and prospers His children, those who observe His goodness to you will perceive Him to be a good God who supplies and blesses, and they will come to your light.

…Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!

… His glory shall be seen on you.
