PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: DEALING WITH MISTAKES…part 6.
Text : John 10:4,5.
4: And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5: And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
For Emphasis sake let’s look at the definition of mistake again: it is defined as a wrong action attributable to bad judgement, ignorance and inattention. In part 5 the emphasis was on inattention, and I concluded that when we are not attentive to the voice of the Holy Spirit we make mistakes and most times enter into trouble, I just want to build on that here: if you can’t recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit how can you possibly give attention to it?
Jesus was describing the good shepherd in our passage, and one of the points of the emphasis is the fact that his sheep follow him: for they know his voice …verse 5. Knowing the voice of the Holy Spirit is the first step in avoiding mistakes. The one who entered into wrong marriage shouldn’t have, if he or she understands the voice of the Holy Spirit. It is this voice that prevents us from entering into errors.
Our lives will be better when we allow his voice to direct us, our mistakes will be minimal when we listen for his voice daily.
You need to understand verse 5;
And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
It is strange voices that lead people to their damnation: that lead people to wrong investment, wrong relationships. This is how it works; suggestions from your mind and flesh are strange voices, they tend to compel you to doing their wishes; I hear people say, ‘ listen to your mind ‘, that’s not right, listening to your mind can lead you into errors if your mind is not controlled by the Holy Spirit, listening to the Holy Spirit is the only sure way to prevent errors.
I was to minister somewhere and the Holy Spirit gave me a word of knowledge for a lady who had choice of either of two men in her mind, she met me after service and I gave the message as I heard in my spirit man, as time passes the two of them left her.
As you move close to God you will be able to differentiate the voice of his Spirit from that of your mind and flesh. God bless you.
* Help me not to obey the voice of strangers.
* It is another day to wait, ask him to help you recognize his leading in your life.
