FAQ 27 – How do I know when God is Leading Me?

FAQ-27

FAQ: I have prayed and asked God for a sign or to tell me what to do next in my journey but how do I know when it is actually Him leading me?

Sometimes the answers we seek are obvious or are already clearly outlined in God’s Word so we simply need to apply wisdom in those instances. If however, things are not clear then I have outlined some keys to help you to grow in learning how to hear and be led by God.

It’s Simple – Let God’s Peace Rule & Reign!

“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace…” Isaiah 55:12a

I believe when making important decisions or knowing which path to take when there are different options, the answer can be as simple as allowing God’s peace to guide you.

For example if you make a decision on something but have what I call “a check in your spirit” where you have an “inner unrest” or “uneasiness” then I would suggest you pull back and seek God for further wisdom before you proceed.

If on the other hand you do have an “inner rest” and peace regarding that decision then continue. The more you learn to how to let God lead you the more confident you will become, so it will be easier to trust when He is leading you in a certain direction.

How to let God’s peace lead you

1) Confusion is not from God!

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace…” 1 Corinthians 14:33a

Confusion, fear, anxiety and worry are never tools used by God to lead us. These all come through worry and stress. They can also come when we over analyse our situation, take our focus off God or when we allow our natural circumstances to overwhelm us.

The antidote to confusion is simple! Jesus is the Prince of Peace  and the wisdom, understanding, revelation and power of God. Therefore, the answers you’re seeking and the peace you need are not coming from your own understanding or from an external source because God’s Kingdom and Spirit are already resident within you.

Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”  Galatians 4:6

Don’t allow confusion to rule any longer! Cast your cares and don’t worry, be anxious or over analyse. Learn how to be still in His presence and draw from His wisdom and understanding so God’s peace can rule and reign instead.

2) Don’t go by your own feelings, thoughts, understanding or emotions!

We need to learn how to discern the difference between the voice of God’s Spirit and the voice of our own natural man and understanding. The problem is simply that we don’t know how to discern the difference between them. So we need to learn how to look beyond our natural thoughts, feelings and emotions.

When I was first learning how to discern God’s voice and leading my emotions and thoughts were all over the place. But over time I discovered that the voice, peace and leading of God are spiritually discerned, not naturally understood. In fact I’ve found that when God’s reveals something to me it is never by my natural emotions or feelings. I’ve learnt not to rely on them or be driven by them. This was important for me to understand because there have been many times in my life where my natural responses were contradictory to how God was leading me, so i have had to quieten my natural thoughts and understanding and look past my natural feelings and emotions by not allowing any fear (negative responses) or excitement (positive responses) govern my decisions, and let God’s inner peace lead and position me in His rest instead.

3) Start Small

If time permits start on smaller things that aren’t urgent or super important to you. We all need to learn how to grow in this area, so begin with day-to-day or simple things that may not be so dear to your heart. This is important because when we are desperate or in an emergency situation it can be difficult to discern God’s peace and leading if our thoughts and desires are in the way.

This journey will not be like a one off race that will need to be won but a lifestyle where we continue to learn and grow in our relationship in the Lord so we can continue to trust when He is leading. So take one day at a time and keep your focus on Him and most importantly enjoy the journey!

4) Learn from Hindsight

We can all learn, grow and gain wisdom from hindsight. One way how we grow in this area can be through trial and error. It does take time to learn how to discern the difference between our own thoughts, the opinions or advice from others and from those that come from the Father. If we are honest with ourselves I’m sure we’ve all faced situations that we can look back on and see where we have (or may not have) correctly discerned God’s leading. While this can be exciting when we experienced a breakthrough or positive outcome, it can be painful when we didn’t experience the outcome we desired. If this has happened don’t allow any feelings of failure, guilt, or shame to condemn you. Also don’t focus on what you could have (or could not have) done or on the outcome but only focus on the solution! Fix your eyes on Jesus. He is the author and perfecter of your faith and He knows your pain and what you are going through. Spend time with Him and allow Him to reveal Himself to you.

5) Be Kind to yourself

We are all learning and growing so don’t put too much pressure upon yourself. Don’t place time restrictions on your faith because that rarely works! Find other believers who will encourage and support you in your journey without judgement or condemnation. Know that your Heavenly Father is not judging or condemning you either. His love is with you and for you always.

We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37b-39

6) You are not alone!

I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. John 14: 16-18

You are not an orphan but a child of God! You are not alone because God will never leave nor forsake you! When Jesus finished His work on this earth, ascended into Heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father He then sent His Spirit to help you. His role as the counsellor is to reveal Jesus finished work and your inheritance to you and help you every step of the way.

“These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:25-26

And finally….

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. Phillipians 4:6-9 NLT

Miracle Baby Eden

Dear Pastor Nerida, My name is Addisalem from Ethiopia-East Africa. I was married for 5 and a half years and didn’t have a child. I started watching your video on YouTube end of 2014. After two months, I got pregnant and last year November, the Lord blessed us with a baby girl. We named her Eden Temesgen. I thank God for His hand up on you and used you to reach many people like us.

Healing Testimony

IIF-book

The price has been paid and the victory ALREADY won for you!

Vanessa from the Uk writes,

After listening to Nerida’s Audio Messages and reading her book, It is Finished  a few times she explained and went through what jesus has done for us and the victory we have in him what he did on the cross. She said how Jesus paid the price for every sickness that we can face in this world, and by faith by trusting in him we can experience healing in our life.

I put this to work in a swollen gland I had under my armpit and normally when I have these they are painful and last for weeks but when I realised jesus paid the price for this too I did not submit to it and spoke over the lump and commanded it to leave my body in jesus name. As soon has I did this my lump felt like it slightly decreased in size and after about 5 days still speaking over it and not submitting to it, it completely vanished from under my arm.

I would just like to thank you Nerida for all your resources and helping me to realise all about the nature of jesus, I could not live without jesus in my life now and it has completely change my whole life learning about him daily. I thank god for leading me to nerida. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Nerida!

God’s Plan of Redemption for Mankind

Do you want to know God’s will, Plan and purpose for your life? You will discover this when you understand God’s Plan of Redemption for mankind. In fact, knowing this is the Foundation to understanding the answers to most questions that believers might have.

God’s Plan of Redemption of Mankind

1) CREATION – God created ALL THINGS to be good. He also created mankind to be fruitful! Sickness, disease, infertility and miscarriage did not exist because God did not create them (Genesis 1:26-28).

2) THE FALL – Barrenness and all of its causes are consequences of the fall. Death entered through sin (Romans 5:12). This is the reason why many are suffering today! We live in a fallen world, with fallen men and there is an adversary.

3) REDEMPTION – God sent Jesus as the solution and He redeemed mankind from the Fall, That’s right! Jesus was the LAST ADAM that came and redeemed mankind from everything that the first Adam brought upon us. The price has been paid and the victory already won for you. The PROVISION has already been made available. God has done all the work and He now wants you to freely partake in and make use of it.

4)  ALL BELIEVERS – have been equipped and empowered with the SAME HOLY Spirit who empowered Jesus. The same Spirit of power that enabled Jesus to heal the sick and who also who raised Jesus from the dead now dwells within you (Romans 8:11). So you now have everything you need in Jesus to be able to walk in victory over any sickness or infertility issue.

5) NEW COVENANT – We have everything we need through Jesus’ finished work and the ministry of the Holy Spirit to walk in victory over barrenness!  If we are not seeing this manifesting in our lives it is NEVER because God has stepped in and is withholding the healing blood of Jesus or preventing it from outworking in our lives!

Want more information on this? read more on my blog post on “God’s Timing” here –http://hannahsvictory.com/blog/2010/09/22/gods-timing/

Always remember that God CANNOT take back what He has already freely provided!

Romans 11:29 in The Message says: ” God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never canceled, never rescinded.”

It is also important to know that God does not choose who to bless or who not to bless because He does not show partiality or favouritism. This means what God has provided for us is freely available to all who believe in Him.

FAQ 26 – Is pain in Childbirth a curse from God?

Childbirth without Fear

FAQ:- You say we can experience a blessed childbirth BUT isn’t pain in Childbirth a curse from God?

FAQ 26 – You say we can experience a blessed childbirth BUT isn’t pain & complications in Childbirth a curse from God?

Unfortunately due to a misunderstanding  of Scripture many believe that God cursed Adam and Eve at the Fall so now every woman is doomed to suffer pain and other complications in childbearing.

This is what we have always been taught to expect BUT one thing we have to ask ourselves is…

“Did God really curse His own creation?”

Before I answer this question lets look elsewhere in the Bible. In Numbers chapter 23 we see that God had blessed the nation of Israel so when Balaam (the seer) was called by Balaak (the king) to curse  Israel, Balaam prophesied (under inspiration and instruction from God) and  said in Numbers 23:19-20

“God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Behold, I have received a command to bless;
He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

No one can curse what God  blessed!

This account reveals an amazing truth that no one can curse what God has blessed! Why? Because once God has spoken and has blessed no one can reverse it! Not even God! The Bible is clear on the nature and character of God so we need to read Scripture in the light of the whole counsel of God in the Word (both Old and New testaments) and not isolate certain Scriptures. When we do this we will clearly see that God does not take back His gifts or break His Word or altar His Covenants or promises! All of God’s gifts and callings are irrevocable, which means that God does not change His mind or will towards mankind (see Romans 11:29). For more teaching and Scriptures on this see my blog post The Known Character of God. If you understand this truth then you will understand why God annot curse what He Himself has blessed!

Remember in the beginning at creation GOD BLESSED MANKIND…

Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His ownimage; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then GOD BLESSED THEM, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

God had blessed mankind, therefore He cannot lie, or change His mind (repent) or break His covenant.

This passage once again highlights how God does not curse us. Regarding the fall and Genesis 3:16 the true nature of God has been misconstrued and people have once again drawn conclusions of God and His character based on reading this verse without deeper study. In response to this commonly asked question, I have some resources freely available regarding this misconception and other areas of childbearing.

FAQ – I am unable to have children is this God’s way of saying no?

FAQ25

FAQ – I am unable to have children is this God’s way of saying no?

Unfortunately many teach and believe that God has 3 main answers to prayer; “Yes, No or wait” but when you understand Jesus finished work and how God has bound Himself to Covenants then you will know that this is a man made view and not Scriptural.

One thing I learnt during my own journey is not to judge how God works in our lives through what we may experience or what we have been diagnosed with. This is because God is not choosing or controlling all the outcomes  in our life, especially when it comes to adverse circumstances like infertility, miscarriage or other forms of sickness and disease. How we can rightly judge God’s will, plan and purpose for our life is through the eyes of the finished work of the Cross and what Jesus died for and redeemed us from.  Put simply God’s answer to every area of life (not just fertility) is JESUS! So when you understand who He is, what He has done and what He has equipped us with you will then know you already have everything you need for your breakthrough.

When you understand this then how you see your natural circumstances change is through your personal relationship with the Father. Allow him to reveal this to you personally so that this information can become revelation. Also learn how to follow His leading so that He can lead you in your victory every step of the way.

To understand this further and to answer your question in more detail I have some resources which I have made available to help you. Below are just some that will empower you to renew your mind with the truth of God’s Plan for your Conception, Pregnancy, Childbirth and beyond!
