James Goll Reveals the Secret of How to Discern and Act on God’s Voice

by | May 25, 2021 | Purpose & Identity

Prophet James Goll, author and founder of God Encounters Ministries, says every believer can learn how to hear God’s voice, something many Christians long for on a daily basis.

But the host of Charisma Podcast Network’s God Encounters Today says it won’t be a simple act of listening. There are things the believer must do to discern the voice of God, because there is little doubt that He wants to connect with us every day.

The Bible, Goll says, tells us that we need to have our “senses trained to discern good and evil” (Heb. 5:14).

“How would you like to have an emotionless relationship with your wife?” Goll asked Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “How would you like to have a non-emotional relationship with a child, especially a newborn child of yours?

“God is our Father, and He loves us and the Bible says that God just falls all over us with joy,” Goll says. “So I make an appeal that God is an emotive God. God has emotions. And, if God has emotions and we are made in the image and likeness of God, and God the Creator, Jesus Christ, in the new creation, lives in us, then how about some of the emotions—not all—that we actually experience are God’s emotions expressed in and through us.

“In this new book of mine, The Feeler, it’s discovering how sensitivity helps you discern God’s voice. And let’s get more raw or transparent. We are all made to be sensitive creatures, and that’s a blessing.”

You can either acknowledge and work with it, or you can acknowledge it and work against it, Goll believes.

“In today’s culture, we are taught to be so fear oriented. There are real issues and it is complex. So one of the main things is to keep your worship on. You’ve got to keep your worship on or you will end up in worry. We are supposed to walk by faith.

There are three W’s that enable us to walk by faith. Goll says, “You’ve got to keep your worship on, you’ve got to keep the Word as your anchor and you’ve got to remain in God’s ways.”

“You will be an anchored believer by the Word and by worship,” Goll says. “You’ve got to put the Word in you or you’re going to float around like a kite by every wind. Learn to embrace the Word of God so you can attain the promise.”
