The fruit of the righteous is a tree of Life, And he who wins souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30)

The Lord has spoken to me!

Ephesians 1:2
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 

How do you know when the Lord speaks to you?
We need to be very careful, when we believe God had spoken to us.
God doesn't come to you unless you aloud Him.
I have known many Christians that have taken drastic decisions in their lives, believing that God had tell them to do something, that most of the time they've already decided to do anyways, they just need to convince themselves that if it is from God it might be OK to do it, just to find themselves in trouble.
When we take action on these things, the results might be the destruction of ourselves or the destruction of others.
That is way we need to stay in the word of God and walk with God all the days of our lives, that way when Satan comes with his lies, we won't be an easy target for him.

1Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because [fn] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

-I believe that God will never tell a wife/husband to go get and divorce the spouse, unless there is a life threat, proven infidelity, verbal or physical abuse, drugs or alcohol abuse. (these are some of the good reasons for divorce)
-I believe that God will never tell someone to pray for somebody's else misfortune. (I'd heard of people doing this)
-I believe that God will never say go here, go there without a plan. (people go around the world looking for that place they believe God had spoken of.)
-I believe that God will never tell a parent...go leave your wife/husband and children to marry "your soul mate" believing that that's the real wife/husband God has for you.
-I believe that God will never tell us not to punish our children, when the Bible tell us very clear to do it.

Proverbs 13:24
He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly. 
Proverbs 19:18
Chasten your son while there is hope, And do not set your heart on his destruction.
Proverbs 22:15
Foolishness [is] bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him. 
There are many more...

There are many things, that can deceive us when we are not walking with the Lord, we might not do it out of evilness, but we might do it out of ignorance, missing the point of God in our lives.
God will never tempts us,  God has given us grace instead, and He loves us so much, that He gave His only son to be kill for our sins.
Stay in the Word of God and you will have the gift of the Holy Spirit to help you to interpret your dreams and to interpret when God speaks into your ears and into your hearts.
