"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." —Revelation 3:20

What should I do? God, is that really you? Send me a sign.

At some point in our lives, we’ve all had questions like this. You may even be asking some of them now.

We each have an innate desire to know we’re making the right decisions and headed in the right direction. But, how can you be sure of what “right” is? How can you know when God is truly speaking to you? What does He even sound like? What if it seems like God isn’t speaking at all?

Hearing from God and following His will doesn’t have to be so complex.

Once you grasp God’s love for you and how He wants to be involved in your life, you can begin to hear His still small voice and see His hand in your everyday dealings.

Read and share these three resources about hearing God’s voice to grow closer to Him and find peace in knowing He’s there for you.

    I am a man of 70 & I love Jesus Christ and I believe, I always have, but I have let the World in way too many many times So I have repented and re-repented and told Jesus I love Him and invited Him into my heart all these times. But the world keeps coming into my mind. And I get all these lies about me and my daily life and my immediate family members, wife, daughter, etc. and others. Why don’t I FEEL the change of Christ in me strongly for good and completely?! I want to!! Please help me feel complete in this change, like you Rev Billy. I love you too and always have since 1953 in my grandmother’s living room. I have been a baptized, but not like Jesus was. I need immediate help to FEEL my transformation once and for all.

      If you have asked forgiveness for your sins and committed your life to Jesus Christ – trusting Him alone for your salvation, then the Bible says that God has forgiven you. You have been adopted into His family, and nothing can ever change that. The Bible says, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).

      Don’t trust your feelings; they come and go. Instead, trust Christ and what He has done for you by His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. God promises that He will forgive and save all who come to Christ by faith.

      Also ask God to help you forgive yourself. The Bible says, “We set our hearts at rest in His presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts” (1 John 3:19-20). If God has forgiven you, shouldn’t you also forgive yourself?

      Isaiah 43:25 says, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” Isaiah 1:18 also says, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

      Thank God for His forgiveness – and then ask Him to free you from the past.

    ~ Repent and ask forgiveness for your sins. God is listening and will know your heart when you begin with those words and take the actions that eliminate sin. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, is the born again relationship with our Father and His Son, Jesus. When that event happens, you will know. It’s a testimony of truth in your life from then on. A pastor said, “If you don’t have Him, you are on your own.” In John, chapter 3 and 4, Jesus says, “You must be born again” and “living water” to know these and have “everlasting life”. Then, you may hear His voice. Thank you Jesus.
