One of the things we pick up as we learn to pray is that Satan pushes and condemns, but God draws and encourages.
There is a tone to a voice. Satan pushes and condemns. God draws and encourages. We can know the difference. There is also a spirit in a voice. It was said of Messiah that He would not “break a bruised reed, nor quench a smoldering wick.” Jesus would never snuff out the smallest hope, never crush the needy, and that’s the spirit we listen for in the voice of God. Then, there is the content of the voice. That is the evidence that is most clear, because the voice of God, the Davar Yahweh, is always consistent with the way God has spoken in the past.
