How to hear God’s voice through your spirit
Hearing God’s voice through your spirit man is a very important way to hear the voice of God. God always speaks to your heart through the Holy Spirit. The bible says, guide your heart with all diligence because out of it, proceeds the good things of life. One of the Good things of life which proceeds out of your heart is the leading of the Holy spirit. God will always speak to you through your spirit. The best way in discerning the voice of God is through your spirit. You need to be very sensitive in order not to mistake it with the voice of the flesh which is what the body desires. When practicing on hearing the voice of God in your spirit you need to be quiet and silent all other voices and allowing that still and quiet voice coming from your heart to speak. If you succeed in silencing other voicing in a quiet place, even when you are in a crowded place you will be able to hear God’s voice because God is always speaking to man, but man is always busy to hear from God. To know if the voice you are hearing is from God, and is leading you towards the right direction, it’s when you have peace in your heart. The voice of God comes in peace and perfect assurance. Colossians 3:15 says let the peace of God rule your hearts. If you have peace in your heart know that God is leading you, and you made the right call.
How to hear God’s voice through your dreams
Another way to hear God’s voice is through your dreams. Through your dreams God will speak to you, guide and direct you in order to prevent you from making poor decisions. The book of Job 33:15-16 says that because man is busy during the day, God comes in the vision at night during slumber to seal information into the heart of man in order to prevent man from falling into the pit. This is why you need to pay attention to your dreams and learn how to interpret them. You should learn how to know the difference between dreams which are as a result of your daily activities, dreams from your flesh, satanic dreams and dreams coming from God. Dreams coming from God will not make you to be afraid, they gave you peace in your spirit with direction and focus, and with no confusion. Get a journal and write down the dreams which you have every day, record the date and evaluate them as days, weeks, and months pass by and you will be able to understand your dreams more on how God speaks to you in your dreams. It worked for me and it will work for you as well. You can read my article on dream interpretation answers for all common dreams.
How to hear God’s voice through spontaneous thoughts
Another way in which you will hear God’s voice is through a spontaneous thought that will come into your mind. God speaks through this method as well because that idea or message which comes in your mind at that time suppresses other thoughts and stands as the leading thought. That spontaneous thought from God puts a smile on your face, gives you peace, and come with a solution. This thought is not selfish, its full of love and comes with direction. You need to be sensitive to this thought when it comes. It might come at any time, while you are driving, talking to friend, making sports, singing, writing, watching a movie or listening to a message. Remember that everything thought need to brought under the subjection of the word of God. Every thought which you have, needs to obey the words of Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, when you receive a spontaneous thought from God, you know in your spirit that it is from God, it is different from that of the devil and the flesh. A thought from God gives you peace in your spirit. The best way to function this way is by practicing it, being sensitive, and recognise it when it comes. But remember that when this spontaneous thought comes, it suppresses the other thoughts and stands up tall, leading and dominating. Note that this spontaneous thought needs to be in accordance with what your heart is saying. They always agree.
How to hear God’s voice through circumstances or Déjà vu (already seen)
God will speak to you through circumstances around you and also through Déjà vu that is to say things which appears as if you have seen them before, like living a moment which seems familiar. Look around you, look at the circumstances and you will get a message from God. The message to you could be that you should not to give up and be strong. God can also be telling you through that circumstance that you need to cease from having pride, show forgiveness, and show much love to other people. Remember that circumstances with a message which is leading you away from God is not the right message coming from that circumstance. God uses circumstances to speak to you in order to rebuild you and for you to adjust your decision over some certain situation.
How to hear God’s voice through Déjà vu (already seen)
Hearing God’s voice through Déjà vu is another way through which God will speak to you. Living a familiar situation or as if a day is repeating itself means a similar thing is about to happen and you can do something about it. At that particular moment you can prevent something from happening or make something to happen depending on the situation you find yourself. The remembrance you have over living that familiar situation is God speaking to you either to prevent you from making the same past mistake or showing you a way to make things right this time. Take seriously when living a déjà vu situation, pray and speak in tongues when you get confused or lost and the Holy Spirit will guide you as always.
How to hear God’s voice through the scriptures
Another way to know how God speak to us is through bible scriptures. The scriptures remain an ideal way through which God will speak to us. Discerning the voice of God through the lenses of the scriptures is a perfect way on how to hear the voice of God. The scriptures are the words of God and should be used as a standard in hearing the voice of God correctly. When you study the scriptures, you will hear the voice of God. If every day for example you study the scriptures you will realise God speaking to you in relation to the things happening in your life and around you. Study the scriptures as you are led in your spirit, at times you might be led to study the old testament, the book of proverbs, psalms, or some books in the new testaments such as the specific words of Jesus. The bottom line is that God will speak to you through his words. Be calm, be quiet and be still, and know that God is God and He will speak to you.
Hearing Gods voice through a vision
Another way that God will speak to you is through images in a vision. You can have a short vision like a flash of images which could last just some seconds and disappear. In this case you should make efforts to remember what it was because most of the times the visions are brief and short. Even though it might be short, God can tell you a whole lot of things within that short period of time. You can have an open vision which is vision with your eyes open, or a closed vision, which is vision with your eyes closed (in your mind as well )and also usually brief. A closed or open vision could manifest when you are driving, walking talking or having a short nap. Whatever vision you have, remember to stay sensitive to it and take note of the message which God is giving to you.
How to hear God’s voice through a Minister of God
Another way on How to hear God’s voice is through a minister of the word of God. Pastors, prophets, evangelists, Apostles and teachers who minister the word God. God can speak to you through these group of people (fivefold ministry) and also through the elders of the church. God puts messages in the heart of these people to communicate to you. At times they might communicate it to you without them being aware that God is actually passing an important message to you. But in your spirit when they speak you can know that it is God speaking to you. The message which you receive doesn’t take you away from God but it brings you closer to God. Attending weekly services or watching services online is a nice thing because through such services God will speak to you and give you a personal message in your spirit which is different from the other people because God wants to connect with you in a unique way.
Hearing Gods voice through an Audible voice
Hearing Gods voice through an audible voice is not very common with most people. There are certain prophets of God who God speaks to them through an audible voice. Once in a while God can speak to you through an audible familiar voice. This voice says something briefly and stops but when you look around you can’t find the person who was talking. Most at times this voice is a familiar audible voice. Just like Samuel when he was a kid, he heard the voice of God audibly and he thought it was Eli who was calling him. God still speaks to people today using this method but remember it’s not a standard, God can choose to use any of the other methods.
How to hear God’s voice through remembrance
Another way you will hear the voice of God is through remembrance by the Holy spirit. God will remind you of somethings which will permit you to make the right decision or say the right things, and will also lead you towards the right path. Jesus said the Holy spirit will bring all things to your remembrance.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and BRING TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE ALL THINGS THAT I HAVE SAID TO YOU.” (John 14:26)
When God brings something to your remembrance note it down and act on it. It could mean at times that you should take an action or not to take an action, and always remember that the word of God is the standard through which you scan the decisions or actions which you are about to take.
How to hear Gods voice through Prophecy
Another way you will hear Gods voice is through a word of prophecy. God speaks to people through words of prophecy through other people to get to you. You can receive this word of prophecy while in church or in a house fellowship. A word of prophecy can also be received during praying sessions. God can also speak to you directly and give you a word of prophecy for yourself during your personal prayer sessions. You should be sensitive when a word of prophecy comes out because you will know if it’s for you or not. At times, this might not make sense to you but with time it will usually makes sense especially when you write the prophecy down and date it.
Learning how to hear God’s voice is very important for everyone. God want to speak to you always, to guide and direct you, in order to prevent you from falling into a pit and making the right decisions in your life. God will speak to you through your spirit, dreams, spontaneous thoughts, circumstances around you, Déjà vu, scriptures, visions, through a minister of God, through an audible voice, and through the bringing into your mind the remembrance of the word of God and things of the past through the Holy Spirit, and also ,through prophecy which could be through a word of knowledge or a word of wisdom or the one which comes out from the interpretation of speaking of tongues. Remember the voice of God is a weapon which can deliver and protect you from every situation. Read this over and over again and put this to practice.
