Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones” (ESV). Because of belief in Jesus through faith in what his death and resurrection means for us, the Spirit of God comes to live inside you. This is one of the greatest blessings of salvation: You don’t have to go through someone else to get to God. He dwells in your heart and you can learn to hear His voice.
The best way to hear from God and know how He wants you to live is to pray to hear His voice and know what the Bible, His Word, says. God’s Word gives us wisdom. God's Spirit gives us direction and guidance. As we study the Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to apply the truth of God's Word to our lives, our mind is renewed (see Romans 12:2), so we no longer just think the way the world thinks – we can think the way God thinks!
When you go beyond what you want, what you think, and what you feel, and do what the Word and the Spirit of God tell you to do, you are able to come to a place where the blessings of God – His righteousness, peace and joy – overflow in your life.
