I REALLY want to hear from GOD because even though I have been saved for a while, I only recently decided to dedicate my whole life to christ in every single way as a living sacrifice. Due to this happening, I have been trying to find God's will for my life, and have been trying to see what he guides me to do, but I am quite unsure whether I am making the right decisions. I try to consult him on everything I do, but I don't feel I get immediate answers when I need them and from this and I feel I have made a few mistakes (doing things I want to do and believing God wants me to do them-selfishness).
I do honestly believe that he told me he is 'with me' and also once convicted me about my faith which I have been trying to increase by reading the bible more and doing daily confessions of the word. But these times that I have heard him were completely spontaneous.
There has not been a prayer unanswered from him so far apart from a few supernatural things I have asked for. The one thing I am having trouble with is this 'inner silence' thing needed to hear from God, I just don't know how to achieve it. I also am very unsure about the holy spirit, even though I know he lives in me, I recognise that in reality I have unbelief about this.
Any suggestions on what I can do?
