Making Decisions through Hearing the Voice of God

Posted: February 17, 2012 in Hearing God's Voice & The Prophetic, Testimonies (Past & Present)

1. How we both made decision when we went to Hyderabad:

In 2006, around the month of May/ June, My wife and I have the heart to serve the Lord, but we both believe that it is good for us to get some good training first before we get directly into the Missions. There were numbers of options for us in different trainings, but we both felt to do the training in YWAM (one of Christian Organization). To do trainings or work in YWAM, the first training we all need to do was/ is Discipleship Training School (DTS).

There were numbers of options for the place to do this training in India, many different Cities gave this type of training in India, it was given in Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai and many other places. So, we didn’t know which place would be good for us, and we want to take a step according to the will of God, it was hard for us to make a decision. I told Jenny, “Let’s ask the Lord and hear from Him”. We both separate and went to different corner of our room and wait before the Lord quietly.

Then, after some minutes we came together again, and shared what we have got or what God told us, we both got the same place, “Hyderabad”. Then, we have a conviction in our heart that God wants us to do the training in Hyderabad, the decision was made and we went to Hyderabad.

2. Making Decisions when we all had a different good ideas in a team:

In 2008, i was leading a team to Sikkim, we were around 8 members and we were to do some programmes in one field, numbers of people will be there, we were discussing, but it was hard for us to make the decision since most of the ideas that were given out were good, but seems to be lots of diversity in the ways we want, and i was the one to make the last decision. So, I told my friends, let us all be quiet before the Lord and ask the Lord what and how He wants to do in this programme. So, we all get quiet before the Lord to hear from Him, after that we all shared what we felt from the Lord, now we’ve got what the Lord is highlighting for us to do, the decision was much more easier to make and agreeable from each of our view points. Sometimes, when we have got many good ideas from all sides, hearing the voice of God will take us to where the Lord is Highlighting for us to do.

The apostle John wrote about hearing the voice of God and the speech of Jesus Christ written in the Bible: John 10 – http://niv.scripturetext.com/john/10.htm

John 10:27 – My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

– David Chawngthu.
