How to Listen for God's Voice Bible Study
How to Hear God's Voice Today

Have you ever known something that occurred was a sign from God? Perhaps an answer to a prayer which was answered by a sign or maybe a person's words? One might ask, then why does He not just speak to me as many Christians say that He does with them? You just want to know how to hear God's voice. Have you ever asked God to speak to you by way of the Holy Spirit? The Bible is clear that our Lord does speak to man by way of the Holy Spirit:

John 16:13

Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.

We read of the Apostles who were hearing God's voice and it is clearly written that He will speak to us today as well ... If we choose to just listen for God's voice:

Hebrews 3:7

Wherefore as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear His voice,

So, why does He not speak to you? Perhaps ... He is trying to communicate with you by answering your request to hear Him, by sending signs and even through people who you can hear God's voice. This is done because something is interfering with the transmission from Him to you.

Before we proceed any further with our God's Voice Bible trek for Truth ... Plant that seed of Truth deep within. Admit to yourself that God did hear and is trying to communicate with you as you requested. If you are sensing signs from Him (despite the method of communication) look for ways on how to hear God's voice. This should be the foundation of your renewed search for how to hear God's voice.

If you did ask to speak with Him and you are receiving signs now and then ... He is trying to reach you. Just as He does for all of His children as a righteous Father would. Which answers another question burning within many Christian souls, which is:

Can all Christians Hear the Holy Spirit?

The answer is Yes ... And No.

It is written: Every one who asks, seeks or knocks, is responded to ...

Matthew 7:7-8

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

But, then there is the faith factor ...

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

But, Faith is obviously not the interference since God does answer you in ways other than hearing His voice. This is an obvious sign that God is sending messages to you saying I am here and answering you.

Consider it like two telephones ... It could be said that God heard you on His end because we know that your phone call did reach God because He responded thru various methods. So, your sending is working and His receiving is working.

This reveals one simple Truth ... If you do not hear God as the Bible says we will, the problem is definitely on your receiving end.

How to Hear God's Voice According to the Bible

But, the God's Voice Bible question still remains ... What is the communication barrier? Most can not and do not know how to hear God's voice for two reasons; Many have constant negative thoughts which create emotions (Spiritual change) and this spiritual change is your spirit responding to these negative thoughts. It can only hear your thoughts which are usually confusion, fear, doubt, anger, pride, lust, jealousy, etc.

Your spirit is so busy hearing your thoughts that your spirit can not hear God's Spirit. Sometimes we may be waiting for some kind of extraordinary phenomenon response from the Lord, like the clouds parting and a message written across the heavens or an audible booming voice which cannot be mistaken, and indeed at times He may speak in that manner;

2 Samuel 22:14

The Lord thundered from Heaven, and the most High uttered His voice.

God's Voice Bible tidbit of Truth ... But, many times, it will be a still small voice:

1 Kings 19:12

And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

God uses your spirit to communicate both ways with you. That is how to hear God's voice. Both to send messages and receive them. The human spirit is a candle for God to see our thoughts:

Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

How to Hear God's Voice? You Listen.

You see, God's Spirit communes with our spirit and emits our soul's condition to God:

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the Will of God.

So, He hears your soul by way of your spirits emotional reactions ... And that is why He is answering you by way of other methods to let you know that He IS there and does hear you. The problem why you don't know to how to hear God's voice is that God is a Spirit and to hear Him we must be in Spirit:

John 4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

How do we know when we are in Spirit? By the fruits. Here are the fruits of the Spirit that you would experience if you are in the Spirit realm:

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

How to Hear God's Voice Procedure

So, we must reach that realm to be able to hear. We must think on these things as to enter that realm:

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

These are not just pretty words they are a recipe. A procedure to renewing the mind from our worldly taught way of the past:

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

God's Voice Bible point of interest ... It is simple. You think sad thoughts and you cry, you think happy thoughts and you laugh. Both the body and spirit obey the soul's thoughts. One must get a leash on their thoughts as to control spiritual change.

Happens all the time you know ... You can be sad about something and a friend and/or someone God sent comes and shares positive thoughts (plants thoughts in your mind) and if you hear, your spirit changes. You chose to allow thoughts to change. Failure to do so ... Results in any negative thoughts you have keeping your spirit encaged in a spiritual prison.

Now, make no mistake, when we are downtrodden, God hears our soul by way of our spirit aching and the Holy Spirit relaying it to God as was shared before.

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the Will of God.

So, during these times God hears us, but we can not hear Him unless we change our thoughts as to tune into the fruits of the Spirit. Much like radio waves, if you will. Just like a radio tower, which emits waves to a radio ... Only if it is tuned in. The music is still playing out there, even if the radio is not tuned in.

Yet another example would be when you are watching television and you are so captivated by it that you do not hear your child yelling at you two feet away. In like manner, God is trying to talk with you, but you are not tuned in.

How to Hear God's Voice Recipe

But, what of the good days? You know, the days we have it going on? When we are happy go lucky. How come we cannot hear Him then? Many are unable to hear the Holy Spirit during the times they are "spirited" because they feel they have no need to call on God.

In Truth, they do not even think about Him because they are so caught up in their own selfish desires being met. Usually a woman, man, material gain or vanity is involved.

This ... is reason #1 why souls cannot hear the Holy Spirit. Your thoughts are having your spirit emit messages to God ... But, you can not hear Him because the same spirit (yours) is so busy responding to another phone call ... Your own thoughts.

Now, let us look at reason number two ... You claim you want to hear from the Holy Spirit, you know Jesus made it clear that He is our Comforter and you have the means to enhance your relationship with Him ...

John 16:7

Nevertheless I tell you the Truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.

But, you share little to no time talking with Him each day. If this was human Love you had for another ... You would wanna spend every waking moment with the person. This is the second hindrance to hearing the Holy Spirit ...

Kind of like when the Moon asked the Sun Why is it that I oft times sit in darkness? The Sun responded, It is because you let the world come between us.

How to Hear God's Voice Summary

Oft times mankind allows something to come between them and God which puts them before Him in their mind and heart. This is deemed as an idol and for good reason. We would be idolizing it rather than God. I have found that we usually lose whatever it is when we do this and this causes even more negative thoughts which causes the spirit of man to grieve again and the vicious cycle never ends. So, in order to break the cycle and to truly seek to become closer to the Holy Spirit. Perhaps choose to establish or enhance your relationship with Him. You can do so below.
