Having trouble trying to figure out what voice to listen to? - What voice is God's and what voice is Satan's?
I found this chart and wanted to put it into words, so I can inform those of you who are having trouble following God's true voice. - Are you actually hearing his voice?
Let's find out, as I did:
God's voice: will still you. You will be still, feel calm and at peace.
Satan's voice: will rush you. You will feel rushed to do what you are told.
-Receive the peace of God, or be rushed by Satan.
God's voice: Leads you. He will guide you on the right path without forcing you to do it; he wants you to make the choice yourself.
Satan's voice: Pushes you. He will push you to do things and try to go against your will.
-God Leads, and Satan Pushes.
God's voice: Reassures you. He will speak to you in a way that removes all fears and doubt from your mind.
Satan's voice: Frightens you. You will feel scared, doubt, and unsure.
-With God: all fears are gone, With Satan: All fears are welcomed.
God's voice: Enlightens you. He will let you know the whole truth. He will tell you what is, and you will be 100% sure without any form of confusion.
Satan's voice: Confuses you. You won't be 100% sure and will feel confused as to what you hear.
-God is not the author of confusion.
God's voice: Encourages you. He will encourage you to do the right thing.
Satan's voice: Discourages you. He will discourage you, so you don't do the right thing.
-Become encouraged or get discouraged.
God's voice: Comforts you. You will feel comforted and safe.
Satan's voice: worries you. You will feel worried and unsafe.
-Do you want comfort or worry?
God's voice: Calms you. You will feel calm and collective.
Satan's voice: Obsesses you. Your mind will be clouded with ideas or thoughts that will continually preoccupy and intrude your mind that are not from God.
-Peace of mind or clouded thoughts? You choose.
God's voice: Convicts you. You will feel sorry for the sins you have done and will confess them.
Satan's voice: Condemns you. You will feel like you're going to hell no matter what you do.
-Grace or Condemnation? You decide which one's right for you.
God's Voice: Sounds POWERFUL and THUNDEROUS.
Satan's Voice: Sounds too good to be true.
Overall, Listen to God's voice, and rebuke Satan when he is caught in the act of pretending to be god, when he is not.
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
1 John 4:1
