Instead of believing we will hear from God at any time, perhaps we should recite this: “I hear from God when I am quiet enough to listen.”
Listening to the Holy Spirit can seem like a weird concept. How exactly does it work? How do I know if it is Him or just my own mind talking?
Even when we hear God’s voice, things can still go wrong. The interaction of God’s revelation with our fallen humanity means there are few solid rules.
