How do I tell if something I see/hear in this world is from the Lord? Is there any scripture related to this topic that someone can share?

Does anyone experience things/events in this world that coincide w/ their current prayers, struggles, real time thoughts, etc?

Thanks and many blessings to you and yours.

Thanks and many blessings to you and yours.Every instance in the Bible where somebody received a "sign" from the Lord had no doubt that's exactly what it was. If you have doubts about whether something is a "sign" form the Lord, it almost certainly is not. He's powerful to get your attention if He needs it.

Thanks for your response. Yes, some times I see things and they are obvious. Other times, I could see it as temptation or as guidance/exhortation. I'm not sure how to take it.

Actually, I just answered my own question. If the guidance/exhortation is needed for growth, then it's a good choice for me to view it as such.

I don't recall any specific guidance from the Word and wanted to make sure I'm not being deceived. I thought maybe all worldly things could be a deception.
