Above is a chart we used yesterday for a message called Hearing God’s Voice from our summer teaching series Beyond Sunday. One of the main themes of John 14-16 is that the Holy Spirit would be to the disciple what Jesus was to His disciples. He would counsel, lead, teach, guide, etc. We identified some faulty ways people try to hear from God but then focused on four primary ways of hearing God’s voice.
A couple of good books on hearing God and God’s will are: How to Listen to God by Charles Stanley and God’s Word IS God’s Will by James MacDonald.
**Note: Chart criteria was from my friend James MacDonald. Chart content is substantially different.
