1.  Is the voice you're hearing consistent with the Word? God's voice never conflicts with the Word of God.


2.  Does it conflict with human reasoning? Is it reasonable? God's voice isn't necessarily reasonable to the world because the world's system is different.


3.  Does it clash with my fleshly desire? God's will or voice does not gratify the flesh, but will gratify the Spirit.


4.  Will this challenge my faith?


5.  Does this call for courage?


6.  Does this cause me to think of the affect on others? Am I concerned about my influence on others - will I be harsh, crude, or careless? I must yield to Him, love others, carry their burdens at times, die to self, and learn to be patient.


7.  When God speaks, He makes me consider future consequences - Satan does not!

It is always a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord as is written in 2 Timothy 1:2,3...

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day…

I want you to know I do pray for you and expect wonderful blessings for your life. I also have high hopes that you are growing in the Lord and taking on His likeness more and more. 

You are a blessing to many others. The Lord is very much aware of your giving heart and never forgets your labor of love. So, I pray for the Lord to bless all that you do.

The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself (Proverbs 11:25).

…Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your alms are remembered in the sight of God (Acts 10:31).

People have dealt with sun burns due to the many hot summer days. What if we as Christian believers had Son burns?


I am speaking about the truth from Luke 24:32, "And they said to one another, Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?"

 

The warmth and presence of God's love fills our whole being as we walk with Him. The two men on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24 experienced a personal encounter with the living Christ. He took the time to explain Himself, beginning with Moses and all the Prophets in Scripture.

 

We can also be blessed and warmed as we take the time to sit with the Lord in prayer, study, and friendship.  We can also receive the mighty baptism and fire of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:1-18).


We serve a risen Savior who is coming again with many rewards. "But to you who fear my name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings..." (Malachi 4:2). Let us all receive the brilliant healing rays of our Lord Jesus Christ!
