WAR ROOM’s Priscilla Shirer Emphasizes Importance Of Knowing God’s Voice

By Movieguide® Contributor

Priscilla Shirer, WAR ROOM actress and author of books like “God is Able” and “Discerning the Voice of God,” recently spoke about the importance of knowing God’s voice. 

“The reality is that sometimes, you do not know until hindsight that what you heard was the voice of God,” she said. “The reality is that there is grace and mercy to cover our missteps, and that the Lord in His graciousness toward us, His knowledge of our frailty and our humanity, for the willing heart who desires to do His will…even when we make mistakes, He allows them to become our greatest teachers for hearing Him correctly in the future. He does not hold it against us because we’ve misstepped along the way.”

Shirer explained, “The reason why we go to the scriptures, the reason why we have quiet time, the reason why we fellowship with other believers who are going to help us remain encouraged in our faith is because we’re just trying to get to know God.”

“When you know His character, when you know the nuances of what He does say and what He wouldn’t say because of how He spoke to our forefathers…when you see His personality and His character, then you know when you hear the voice of fear: ‘That don’t sound like my God,’” the actress continued. “We can quickly pinpoint the voice of a stranger, because if we know God, the more clearly we can discern and divide His voice from a stranger.”

Shirer explores the topic further in her book, “Discerning the Voice of God,” writing, “Creating time, space, and opportunity to hear God is paramount for those of us who desire to sense His Spirit’s conviction, to receive His detailed guidance, and to discern His intimate leading.”

She has also spoken about the power of prayer, reminding us that we can never ask too much from God. 

“Beyond what we could think to ask are things that only God knows. And out there, in here, wherever our words come up short, His Spirit fills in the blanks, not allowing anything to touch our lives that cannot be co-opted to conform to His will,” Shirer wrote in an essay for Relevant Magazine. “You and I are completely covered. Totally. Because God is able.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Shirer’s thoughts on strengthening our relationship with God through prayer:

WAR ROOM star Priscilla Shirer recently spoke about the importance of prayer and how it can strengthen our understanding of God. 

“The word of God is the sword of the Spirit,” she said during an appearance on TBN’s PRAISE. “One of the things I walked away with from [WAR ROOM]…it occurred to me that, while I did value prayer, I had neglected intentionality with prayer.”

Shirer explained that enemies would want to “devalue in your mind the potency of what I know to be the most powerful weapon you have against me…it’s the prayer that pushes back the kingdom of darkness.”

When asked about how best to incorporate prayer into daily life, Shirer’s answer was simple. 

“Practice God’s presence all day long,” she said. “That idea takes the guilt off of ‘I didn’t have my quiet time and it didn’t look like this and it didn’t fit in a comfortable little box.’ Do it however you’ve got to do it. Practice God’s presence all day long.”
