7 Biblical Ways to Hear God's Voice

News Hub Creator

Hearing God is not at all a luxury; it is not reserved for a single category of people (pastors, prophets, evangelists, apostles, etc.). It is enough to have ears to hear God! In other words, everyone can hear the voice of God! Then you need discernment. The great difference between Christians and unbelievers is that, Christians are children of God, and thus they can speak to Him, or hear Him, whenever and wherever they want, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in them individually, as well as corporately. On the other hand, in general, unbelievers need intermediary people (mediators, messengers of God) to hear God speak to them.

However, it must also be recognized that it is imperative to learn to discern clearly the voice of God. Just as a new-born child, growing up, learns through regular body contact, to discern the voice of his mother, so the new-born Christian must train to discern the voice of God through fellowship with the Holy Spirit. For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it (Job 33:14).

7 Biblical Ways to Hear God's Voice

1. Visions

Peter’s Vision (Acts10)

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.” (Acts 2:17-18)

2. The Silent Voice of God

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:11-13)

3. Angels

The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.” (Luke 1:28)

4. Creation

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. (Psalms 19:1-2)

5. The Scriptures

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

6. Circumstances

I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. (Revelation 3:8)

7. Spiritual Occurrences

The next day Moses entered the tent and saw that Aaron’s staff, which represented the tribe of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds. (Numbers 17:8)
