From God’s Mouth

Proverbs 2:6. For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.

God gives us wisdom through His Holy Spirit.  That wisdom is to encourage us to hear all God has to say.  We hear when we prayerfully read the Bible.  We hear when we gather together with other believers.  We should also hear when we pray.  Our prayers should not be a monologue but a dialog – a 2-way conversation with our God.  We don’t hear an audible voice though that has and can happen.  God speaks to us in a quiet, inner voice.  How do we know these thoughts come from God and are not our own thoughts?  God’s thoughts are much wiser than ours.  The best way I found to learn to distinguish God’s voice from my own thoughts is to write.  I have found that God expresses things differently than I do. When I read what I’ve written while listening in prayer I am surprised by it.  Worth practice hearing and recognizing God becomes easier.  The question is are we willing to put in the time and effort?  God wants to give us wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
