How To Recognize God's Voice- Pastor Chris Oyahkilome

Pastor Chris Oyahkilome is the founder of Christ Embassy Church. He has affected many lives through his messages across Nigeria and abroad. He has a daily devotional called 'Rhaspody Of Realities' where he shares the message of the kingdom. Recently in his devotional, he shared about how christians can effectively recognize God's voice.

In his words he said, whenever you hear a voice or a message, the first thing you must first desire to know is by what spirit such a message is coming to you. Many Christians have listened to the voice of Satan and mistaken it for God’s voice, because they were not able to discern well.

The Bible explains in the book of Acts 16 that as Paul and Silas were while walking through the marketplace, they encountered a girl possessed with an evil spirit. The Bible says, “The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation” (Acts 16:17).

She was surely saying the right thing. But the 18th verse says, “…Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.

What she was saying sounded nice, but she was being influenced by a spirit of divination. Paul quickly discerned this, this is the way all believers should live their lives.

How you know the Spirit of God is speaking through a person is that you are edified and not grieved.
