You talk about the need to listen to the voice of God when we pray, but how do we know that it is truly God who is speaking to us and not just our own thoughts we are hearing?

I truly believe that when you are able to get away from the distractions of everyday life, that’s when God speaks to you. So in these quiet moments, listen. When things come to mind, I believe it’s the Lord speaking directly to you. Of course, God will never contradict His Word, so be sure that what you are hearing is in line with what the Bible teaches.
