How do you know if God is talking to you or Satan? How can tell if your agenda or actions are from God or Satan?
Jesus was able to recognize Satan in Peter’s words. Whatever Peter said to Jesus did not support God’s plan. Therefore, Jesus said to Peter “Get behind me Satan. You do not have in mind the things of God but the things of man.” Matt.16:23
-If whatever someone suggests to you violates God’s word, then is Satan talking. Peter’s words went against God’s mission.
-When your actions or feelings go against God’s mission. It is Satan talking.
-When your plan or action does not help God’s kingdom but rather creates a hindrance to it; then you are serving Satan.
-When how you feel does not match how God sees you, then it is Satan talking.
-When your actions create division in the church rather than unity, then you are becoming an instrument of Satan.
It is through God’s word that we will be able to discern God’s voice and also the enemy’s. It is his word that will help us calibrate our hearing so we can know for sure who talks to us.
God is constantly talking to you and so is Satan. You are in the middle. Who are you listening to?
