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.
  • Reading your Bible daily will also strengthen your connection to God and make it easier for you to hear Him speaking to you.

  • A journal
  • Praise and thanksgiving
  • Confession
  • Worship
  • Asking in prayer
  • The local church
  • The whole body of Christ
  • Silencing voices from the past

Read more about these and many different ways you may hear from God in this article (click here) where the list above came from.

The article was adapted from the book Speak Lord, I’m Listening: How to Hear God’s Voice Above the Noise by Larry Kreider.

It keeps our goals focused on our long-term success and will help to keep us from making short-term mistakes. Do you have things in your life that you have not forgiven yourself for? Do you need to forgive others? Forgiveness is a process, not an event. It starts with a decsision to look past the pain of the past and forgive both the action and the desire. Forgiveness tells us to cling to our family, our husband, our wife, our children despite what they have done before – just as they are to cling to us.  Try something different until it works. [...]
