Factually speaking, few individual Christians really know and discern the voice of the Holy Spirit. God is always willing to speak to His people, but His voice is often undiscerned and un recognized, because we fail to understand the way of the Sprit.
To learn to hear from God is the greatest ability and Christian can possess. Well-intentioned Christians make “Kingdom” decisions that are derived from man’s perspective and not God’s. These decisions are frequently made from information and logic and not based on knowledge given by the Holy Spirit to the believer.
Certainly everyone had seen misuses and abuses by those who claim to have heard God. But it is normal Christianity to walk in fellowship with God that is intimate enough to enable us to hear from Him on a daily basis. Jesus didn’t say that His sheep would listen to tapes, read books or memorize Bible verses, although these things are all good. But He did say, “My sheep hear My Voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” (John 10:27)
