  1. Starting at 4:48 he says ask God and he will answer. I am trying to find Gods voice and obey him but I question if it is him or me sometimes. I never hear a voice but feeling. I am currently trying to seek him but I like watching tv and shows and I read and pray in the bible but I feel heavy when I think of watching a show is this him? Or how do I know what to do without disobeying him?

  2. This is so brilliant. Thanks for the clarity. Before now I guess I used to look outward to hear from God rather than inward. He honestly speaks to us just that we aren't listening and we haven't trained ourselves well enough to identify his voice or commune with him.

  3. I feel that god is in my subconscious mind and very very present!!!! I just don’t know how to talk or speak or act or evolve and let myself lose. Money hold me back drugs keep me sane smokes keep me stressless, it’s hard and I need help asap

  4. I think this is God speaking to me.
    I stumble upon a sermon of yours for the first time, and as I was watching it, I thought to send it to my mum, so that she can also watch it. The same thing happened again, and I decided to send it to my friend. I believe God is speaking to me, to better myself as a Christian and a person and also help other people come to God and his light, and walk with him. Thank you pastor Stanley for your wonderful work in the world.

  5. When talking to people about God, the questions that are asked the most is 'Why does God let people suffer, especially children?" "Why doesn't God stop people from hurting other people?" " Why do people and animals have to endure pain caused by another person?" I need help with this. How do I explain this to people?

  6. Praise God for his messenger to God be the glory for the things he has done Amen thank you pastor Stanley for teaching the word of God with clarity and understanding God bless and keep you and your family

  7. I needed this. God been telling me to wait for her, and I been wondering like, is that the devil or you, God? Ik it's God bc I only hear one voice. Satan isn't allowed to be in my mind alone

  8. I've had a few times when God spoke to me but the one that I hold dearest to my heart is the first time. I was a teen. By this time in my life, I had endured much trauma in my life and I thought material things would make me feel better. Therefore, instead of asking for healing, I would ask for things that I thought would make me look valuable to others. Well, this particular episode, I was crying and saying to myself noone loves me so God couldn't truly love me, etc. And I remember clearly a gentle but authoritative voice wispered in my ear "Just because I won't do what you want me to do, doesn't mean that I don't love you". I know God is so Good. Despite anything I have gone through, my relationship with Christ has been the best part of my life.

  9. Mr. Stanley, you said that you have heard from God, was it audible? I have been waiting for 4+ decades to hear from God, to no avail. What does God sound like? I'm told that it's a small voice in my head. The only thing I hear are the multitude of unanswered questions, in a voice that sounds like me. I am beginning to think that I will never hear from God. My heart and faith are broken because of God's absence/silence. I guess that I am looking for direct communication from God. Like a two sided conversation. I have prayed and prayed and prayed for this for a long time, still nothing. I so desperately need to hear from God. It causes distress, disappointment, heartache. I believe that my depression is caused by God's lack of involvement in this miserable life. Just one audible word, that can only be attributed to God, would help me so much. That one word would bring hope back, strengthen my faith, give me both peace and piece of mind, joy might come to my life. That one audible word would change everything for the better. Thanks for the opportunity to say my piece, and God Bless You, in Jesus name, Amen
