Luke 8:10
He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, " 'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.

I have written about the first time that I heard the audible voice of God in the post "The Farm". But, I have since found the above mentioned verse that confirms my thoughts on whether what I heard from God was a parable or not.

Do you not love how God confirms what He needs and wants from you? In my early walk with God, I had, so many times wondered at if I was truly hearing Him or not. But, sure enough He would confirm my doubts and I would have a sure foundation to walk on.

Now, I know for sure that I am hearing God and need no confirmation, although, at times I still get the confirmation. This past Sunday, at church, I was asking God to speak to me about going back to the farm. I wanted to make sure that I was doing the write thing. So, I asked to hear His voice. Instead, I closed my eyes to worship and had a vision for someone in the church.

Ok, I thought, I'll go and give her the word. After speaking to the woman, I came back to my seat and again began to worship. I quit trying to get a word about the farm and just enjoyed the worship.

But, when we sat down to listen to my pastor, God started to speak. One of the things He said, was that my brother, Only In His Service, would have an answer about the first word I ever heard from God. This would be a confirmation of what I believed the word to be, instead of a parable.
After church we went to lunch with my brother. I began to share with him and my husband the things that God had told me in church, but did not share that my brother would have a confirmation word for me. When I shared the word from God that "No predator will cross your land" my brothers face lit up and he said "the predator is a unmanned aircraft used by the military." This was interesting. I told him he was confirming the word from God about the farm.

"No predator will cross your land." When ever we try to see the land on Google maps or any other satellite image, you can not see it. You can get over it, but it is always blurry and a different color than all the rest of the map. My brother confirmed to me that what we are doing, by going back to the farm is correct.
I do not look for confirmation anymore, but it sure is nice when you get it. Especially, in a situation like this. A life changing situation. I praise God for confirmation and for wanting to commune with His people. Our God is an awesome God.
