God is always speaking, but you may not always hear Him. If you’re not hearing from God regularly, it could be because you’re limiting the ways you listen for His voice. God speaks in a wide variety of creative ways, so you need to be open to hearing from Him however He chooses to speak to you.
- The Bible: … The Bible is your final authority – the standard by which you should check everything else you think God may be saying to you. Remember that nothing God says in any other way will ever contradict what He says in the Bible. Get to know the Bible well by reading and studying it often. Be sure to keep the context and original intent of Scripture passages in mind.
- A journal
- Praise and thanksgiving
- Asking in prayer
- The local church
- The whole body of Christ
- Silencing voices from the past
Reading your Bible daily will also strengthen your connection to God and make it easier for you to hear Him speaking to you.
