There are basically three general answers God gives to us when we ask him for something, “Yes, no, or wait.”
How can you know what God is saying to you? I’ve talked about this topic a lot. In previous articles some of the most important ways of hearing God’s voice that I covered are the word of God, through the Holy Spirit’s leading in your heart, and through the circumstances of your life.
