Fan or Follower? – Can You Hear God’s Voice?


Hi Everybody!

So today I have another video today to get us thinking about our walk in the Lord. Being Christian doesn’t win us any medals, popularity contests or any brownie points, but it does gain us an eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when we seriously consider what it means to be a Follower. There are times when people look at me wierdly when I say I heard this and that from the Lord as if to say I’m some kind of liar…my question to them would be… Do you hear from the Lord? and if so, What have you heard from the Lord???? If not…why not?

John 10:27
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

I know when God is talking to me if He’s convicting me of a bad habit that I need to curb, or if He points out areas of Sin that I need to confess and repent about. I also Hear from Him when He gives me warnings about certain situations or about people, and I also Hear from the Lord when He tells me that He loves me. I believe in His voice through the workings of the Helper who is the Holy Spirit. I admit that there are times I ignore Him obviously because of stubborness and pride, but I know His voice because He is the Counselor of my soul. I’m not going to act like I’m a saint all the time becuase I have my own struggles to deal with and I’m not going to remain in denial of that just so I can sleep well at night. Sometimes the Lord tells me things I don’t want to hear but He loves me enough to tell me the TRUTH. The Truth isn’t always easy to swallow, but I’d rather be told the truth than swim in a pool of lies. Such a pool leads to drowning, but God always throws us the Life Jacket to pull us out of that pool of regrets with His TRUTH.

Jesus is our Saviour in every sense of the Word and that is why when we Follow Him, we must purpose to Hear Him when He talks to us through the Holy Spirit. This is how we come to reverentially Fear the name of the Lord. Sin separates us and deafens our ears but REPENTANCE sharpens our hearing and discernment as it also reconciles us to Hear attentively to what the Lord is saying to us through the Holy Spirit.

Ask yourself…Can you Hear the Lord speak to You when He tells you something through people, signs, wonders, confirmations and various other ways and methods? If God can use a Donkey to get Balaams attention (Numbers 22), God will and can use anything to get our attention, but it’s up to us to purpose to recognize when the Lord is in fact talking to us through His methods to convict our Spirit to yield to the Truth of His Word.

Everybodies relationship is different  in their walk with the Lord since some people are at different stages, but I am convinced that as we continously learn to Follow the Lord whole-heartedly, we must be able to hear His voice. If we cannot hear Him, then certain things are happening in our lives to prevent us from following our Lord Jesus Christ whole heartedly.We must really search deep and ask ourselves…why do we find it hard to follow God fully?

Check this video out and think about what it means to Follow Christ rather than being a mere Fan of Christ. Those who follow will learn to hear the Lord’s Voice and will answer to His call.  Stay Blessed Everybody!

    • Lol thanks hun. My name has been spelt in so many ways so not to worry 😉
      Thank you for your kind comments, they mean a lot to me. I just want people to feel God’s Love for them by drawing nearer and nearer to Him. He always has his arms extended towards those who diligently seek Him. Jesus Loves you and everybody. His love is amazing!

  1. Nice write up, Sherline! I feel that everyday the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins. Like I always say, you cannot lie to yourself but choose to ignore the truth. There was a time when I couldn’t distinguish btw God’s voice and whispering spirits, but guess what? I repented wholeheartedly, and sought God. I started by being obedient, doing the little things that He commanded but I previously ignored. Then I would say “What next Lord?” The more I sought His ways the more His voice became clearer. Sin separates us from God. Jesus’ death brought us salvation, redeemed us from death. Oh I could go on…your post inspires discussion haha!
    Thanks 🙂

    • ignoring the truth causes us to become lame in the Spirit, Deaf in the Spirit and Blind in the Spirit. When we accept the truth for what it is, we get healed physically, emotionally and spiritually. That is how we learn to hear from God. But how many want to hear what GOD has to say? Some run from the truth as if they’re going somewhere better when running far from it…but what they don’t realize it that they aren’t running…they’re falling. It’s a scary place to be. My prayer is that people seek the truth rather than run from it and may the Truth they find in God set them free so that they are free indeed.

      Thanks for reading Margaret 😀
      God Bless you my sista!
