Is it normal to have an inner voice, something in your mind that tells you to do things ?

And If I see God in everything, how do I know that I am not delusional (as that is what a normal person will say).

Actually in psychiatry there is a special exception made for delusions of a spiritual contexts as they need to be understood in the cultural context, so usually they will not ever say that a person is delusional just for spirituality. It is understood that spiritual experiences are different in different backgrounds. If we are a Sikh, we are following Guru Granth Sahib Ji, we accept that as our Truth and follow Guru Ji's advice, that is how we know we are not delusional. That is what is real. Yes it is normal to have an inner voice, that is our own mind telling us to do things. It is an auditory hallucination only when you hear other people's voices, and even then that can be normal depending on the person's age and context.
