Discerning the Voice of God is written to guide readers into how to hear and listen to God speak the messages he is trying to convey to you. Many of us are desperately wanting God to answer and guide us on who to marry, what career do you want me to work in, how to deal with our wayward sons and daughters, and major decisions we are having to make. Many times we dismiss and pass messages and events as being only coincidence and we perceive that they can't be from God. God can communicate through other spiritual people, pastor's sermons, songs, bible studies, and any other way he seems fit to. He spoke to Moses through a burning bush, to Daniel when he had to endure being thrown into the lion's den, to Jonah when he was living in the belly of a large whale, and many other Biblical examples. It's people who put the limits on our God! The most vital aspect to remember is that the words and messages we receive must line up with God's written word. God can't violate and contradict what he has promised and written. He always fulfills what he has spoken into existence. Priscilla Shirer points out that when God speaks and tells us to do something He will always provide peace and that's one sign that we know where and what God is leading us to.

The book contains tons of scriptures to convince readers that God can and still does speak to His people today. One of my favorite scriptures that was an immensely encouragement was Habakkuk 2:3. This versed helped me to realize that God has an appointed time to bring His messages to me and I don't have to worry about missing them or if one of his promises will come to pass. He repeats with a persistence to make sure His people don't miss what he is trying to teach them.

"How do you know it's God speaking?"

"How do I hear God's voice?"

"Does God speak to people today?

I've heard these questions from friends and in Bible studies, and I've asked them myself. "How do I know it's God and not me?" seems to be a question every Christian asks himself at least once on the journey.

So I was excited to find this book by Priscilla Shirer. Discerning the Voice of God offers practical advice for God-glorifying decision-making. Shirer takes a complex and sometimes confusing issue -- "Is it God?" "Or me?" "Or the Enemy?" -- and breaks it down into simple pieces. Will it bring glory to God? Is it consistent with His truth? Is it confirmed by external circumstances? Do you have a sense of peace, even if the decision is challenging? These "tests" make hearing from God accessible to all believers, not just a chosen few.

Discerning the Voice of God was my introduction to Shirer's writing and teaching, and I have to say, I want to read more. She speaks from the heart with conviction and confidence. Her teaching is to the point and simple, bringing clarity not creating confusion. Her passion for the Lord and His truth comes through in her writing.

My family is facing some major life decisions and I've found Discerning the Voice of God to be a trustworthy guide through the process.

FAVORITES: Shirer uses personal examples and common experiences to illustrate her points. I connected with her like I would sharing a cup of coffee with a girlfriend. Her insights make hearing from God less intimidating.

FAULTS: A couple of Scriptures seemed stretched to fit her point when looked at in context. However, I haven't studied those Scriptures in depth nor did I look up the original language.

I remember the excitement I felt after ready the 1st chapter and actually HEARING God speak to me about some things that had been going on in my life.....PRICELESS!

I've been struggling lately with trying to hear God's voice and afraid that I was getting mixed messages from the opposite side. Come to find out, it was God the whole time and now I have such a spiritual peace. I was told something by my cousin recently. She sent me a text to inform me that she had a word from God for me. He told her to tell me to "Stand still". As I started reading this book, the author stated clearly to "Be still" while trying to meditate. Those 2 words JUMPED out at me so plainly, it was like they were in bold print when I read them. This was a definite confirmation of what she told me 2 weeks before purchasing this book. It's a great foundation in helping young Christians like myself and others in learning how God communicates with you. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to hear God's voice. He's constantly trying to talk with you, it's up to us to tune Him in!

Format: Paperback
Discerning the Voice of God will revolutionize your God radar and give you a practical and divinely insightful into how to listen for God's voice. This book is very well written. Each chapter is filled with so much information and poignant lines that gets you thinking right away. After each chapter I say to myself, "What more could she possibly add in the next chapter"? But, each turn of the page, brings more tidbits of information.

I found myself re-reading and underlining throughout the book. I usually identify a book every couple of years that I buy for everyone I know. This has become that book! I've learned so much about hearing from God and I considered myself a veteran in studying the Word of God and thought I knew much about this subject already. But this book was speaking to my spirit as I scanned the shelf of the local Christian bookstore to find something interesting to read. This book (I must say myself) was an excellent choice and is taking me deeper in my walk with the Lord.
