Voices are like finger prints. Each is as unique as the person who speaks with it. You can be walking down a crowded concourse at an airport and hear your brother/sister/friend calling you and immediately you know who it is that's calling you.
It's not so easy to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The reason for this is that he speaks in a whisper. It's a low, brief, quiet speech that we can easily miss if we aren't paying attention. The second reason it can be hard to hear is because it often sounds just like MY voice. And so sometimes I think I'm hearing God's will for me when really I'm just hearing myself wanting what I want.
But every once in awhile you hear deep in your heart "a feeling that has a voice like yours" telling you something you need to hear. It goes like this for me: it starts with a feeling, let's say frustration. "I'm sick and tired of being the one who makes the peace ---- let someone else get everybody together." This is MY voice expressing a very familiar frustration with having to put aside MY feelings for the sake of the good.
But then I hear way down in my mind . . . "Tim" (this voice knows me by name). . . and usually a few seconds later . . . "You know what is needed here; don't you?" Then MY voice speaks, "Yes. I guess so." Then the Spirit speaks . . . "Well?"
