I am using this study for my small group study. This study is very thorough and is very effective for all of my group members: experienced and new Christians. The information is formatted to reach all age groups and I would truly recommend it for teenagers growing in their Christian faith.
God loves to communicate with us. He is very creative and finds many ways to speak to us. He has spoken through a burning bush and a fiery furnace. He uses a still small voice and a powerful voice from heaven. He will find a way to speak to us so we will understand Him. In "Discerning the Voice of God," Priscilla Shirer teaches how to approach God and how to recognize His voice. You must come to God expecting to hear God's voice and willing to wait patiently. You must also be willing to obey what God asks of you remembering that He will never ask you to do anything that contradicts Scripture but He has been known to ask His followers to do impractical things like leaving the realm of the familiar and go to a land He has prepared.
Through Shirer's personal experiences and the thoughts from the saints including Oswald Chambers, Matthew Henry, A.W. Tozer, Tony Evans and more, we get a glimpse of how to discern God's voice in the midst of the chaos of the world. Through His voice, God challenges us, encourages us, and teaches us. In order to hear Him speaking, we must stay in tune by reading God's Word, spending time in prayer and responding in obedience.
