[color=#000099][/color][font=Lucida Sans Unicode][/font][b][/b][i][/i]Its easy to know that God is speaking to you, how? The scriptures tell us that "The children of God hear the word of God n Deep within us there is this confirmation that we are the children of God" and Spirit discern Spirit, Emotion goes for Emotion therefore a child that has been living or staying under the same roof with his father will in no doubt know n understand the voice and signs of his father except the son is in no wise the true son he claims to be

A clear way to indicate interest in hearing God's voice is by obeying the clear commands in the Bible.

God does speak today in many ways.

1. The Bible is the surest way - however, it can be difficult, you are a witness! But a good Bible class that reveals God's principles to you is God speaking. It grows over time and eventually, you have a lot of things you know God has told you.

2. Your conscience witnesses to what God is telling you. God didn't write in the Bible that you should work in a bank or do business but such details of life he helps us with by our conscience.

3. Peace. When we are about to do something that He is leading us to, we experience peace. Yes, those who never listen to Him have peace with evil as well, so be careful.

4. Circumstances often tell us what God is saying now. If you are desperate to hear a voice, Satan is ever-willing to talk to you. God doesn't speak like that a lot because we are to live by faith. Believing the Bible is great faith.

When we can't change circumstances, we can accept them as His will for us.

god is everywhere and he sees every one. his voice is distinct and it cannot be missed. however, in my vast experience, i know God has a british accent. he sounds like a cross of Samuel L. Jackson and Pierce Brosnan. Somtimes, especially in the summer he may get a bit goofy and take on a jamo accent but you can easily see through it. watch out for irish and american accents though, that could be the devil and if it is a naija accent then you know it the babalawo calling your head (yourba english) put your ipod to the highest level and dont answer.

hope that helps.

Just listen to the small still voice inside you it sure works for me when in doubt or confusion i just sit down close my eyes and ask any question and then listen to the small voice that anserws me back though i must confess sometimes it tells me to work things out myself. For years it worked for me i could know my results in exam and i tell my siblings what to expect when they are nervous about something and then it happens now they told me not to tell them anything again cos it kills the fun. Also in your dreams but you have to be pure to have the real thing cos the moment you fall into sin the voice and the dream wont give correct anserws you will know this because what you dream about wont come to pass and the small voicewont say the truth no more.

well, i believe it all depends on your relationship with him. if you are really in good communication with him, you will know when he is speaking to you. let me tell you a little story. if i could remember it was last year. i went to a vigil and that was one of the vigil that i really prayed for answers. when i got home i found out where i was staying the gate was locked for sanitary purposes and i don't want to be part of it considering am just coming back from a vigil.

i decided to take a walk under the bridge pending when it will be over. as i was standing there, something was urging me to find a place to seat and started to look around just to find where i could rest for a while. i decide to cross the road and seat inside the round about, not mending the soldiers guiding their gate that are looking at me.

just few minutes that i sat down there, guess what happened. this hug tippers that are often use for sands and it was carrying sands at that time, lost it break from another lane, cross over to the next and guess where it was heading too? directly where i was standing initially and narrowly miss one of the pilers of the bridge and the driver was smart enough to still hold the wheel and ran it on a rough soil for it to stop.

had it been i did not hear the voice inside of me to seat down and rest, i would have meet papa God unprepared. so, every thing depends on our closeness with God, our maker.

cheers.

Great replies from y'all. However, when it comes to dreams, people should be very careful as the devil can come in such way too. Which ever way, with time, you get to know how God does get through to you in any of the ways mentioned above by others

Yes really, God do speak to us! I think the only problem with mankind is that when you are too occupied your minds with unnecessary things. And that is why we may not really understand when God speak.

The more closer you are to God, the more you hear Him speak. It could be likened to a child that is always closer the the parent, they understand the parents, even the body odor of the parents!

So dear, be closer to God and you will hear Him speak to you clear and loud!

Remain bless.

@ Topic

I think it will be impossible for an individual to answer that. Go ask your pastor in church. Ok?

Not sure - but like IBDAT it depends on you to deduce.

BTW< here's an interesting blog I found on whether God even exists - it says pretty much the same thing - you have to deduce it.

It makes me feel better about myself that left to my own devices, I deduced that there is a God.

Hey, i will like to thank you all that sent one or two ways on how to hear from GOD, i must say i have been blessed with what you all have sent, i will like you to know that i have always been hearing from GOD but i still have the inner me telling me i will still need to hear more from GOD at all time that is the reason i was trying to get different ways by which we can hear from GOD. Thanks to you all and it is my prayer that GOD will always bless you all and meet you at your point of needs. Amen. I will also like us to pray this pray for our country Nigeria.

Today O Lord, on behalf of our leaders and every citizen of this nation, we plead for mercy and forgiveness; and we decree the will of God for this land, whether devil likes it or not. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, with much love and thanksgiving. Amen!

If what you hear is in line with the word of God and you have a peace in your heart which is unexplainable then it is God. When God has spoken to you, you are no longer confused, God's voice just settles it just like pmdaboh said about her experience when she was going to Nigeria.

Even if there is a danger ahead and God speaks to you, you will have his peace and his assurance that you will be victorious.

Please understand that God will speak only if you are willing to Obey and you must obey the last word he gave you before you move ahead.

Guess what even i am being blessed as I write this.

He's speaking to you through me right now and he said, you're going to eat lunch today, have a bowel movement and go to sleep.

May He bless us all. Ameeeeeeeeeeeeen.

Really you just do what you wanna`do, especially in your subconcious, if results of what you decided is good, you praise God and if its bad you blame it on the devil. born again christians

OK , OK

I guess a new thread or a previous one will do for "the black jesus" of a thing. This should be a thread to write about how God speaks to us, Tellyb, you never can tell , if truly Horus is on the wrong path , maybe he may pick up some new strings to pull here and so hears God speaking to me. 1Corinth.1:18

As for me God will always speak to you in different ways just like others had pointed out. If you didn't realise in an instance, he uses another means-The Scriptures, Sermon, Direct encounter, symbolic occurances even through a mad man!

@Horus,

I was actually in London at the weekend as I hinted. I'm back now for a while, but sad to say, you really have demonstrated you have a perennial self-defeating problem.

Now can you tell us a bit more of about your "black jesus" whom you have severally called "the true Son of God"?

Adam and Eve heard the voice of which they knew to be God, or the Lord. In order to speak you must have a larynx, and its functions are to produce sounds and keep food from entering the trachea. Does this mean that God eats,? which means he needs food, and thus making him in need of a digestive system?

Yes God does speak through various ways. The experience I shared with you was just one way he can speak. Read your bible daily, meditate on his word, and pray to God. In doing those things, you will discover more of God and he will begin to speak to you.

He speaks in diverse ways.Some include:

1. Through His WORD.You may be going through a particular situation and all of a sudden, you read a biblie passage you may have read before but now gives a new meaning adderessing your situation.

2. Through a fellow human being,BUT make sure it does not contradict HIS WORD.

3. Its always good to move away from the crowd and noise to hear that still small voice that floods your soul with peace thereafter that you will know only God can do that.

4. Through peculiar situations and circumstances.

In all, be prayerful,be grounded in the WORD and be in the spirit, For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God Rom 8:14

My youngest daughter, who accepted Christ in her life, asked me the same question one day.  She wanted to know how does one know when God is speaking to them, for she heard many of her brothers and sisters in Christ say, "God spoke to my spirit  or heart" about this or that.  And she was getting frustrated, for she felt as though she did not have a personal experience with God speaking to her.  She began to feel something was wrong with her as a Christian.

I explained to her that when you first accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are newly born into the kingdom of Christ, and you have so many things to learn.  I told her when God speaks to my heart or spirit, it is a "still voice" within me.  I remember when I was preparing to come to Lagos, Nigeria and marry my husband, and some people were against it.  They feared for my safety, for I was flying for the first time, traveling to a foreign country alone as a woman, and marrying a man that they knew little about.  One morning in the shower, God said to me, "Fear Not!"  I was not thinking about the trip at that moment, and it caught me off guard.  I looked up toward the ceiling, for it was just that powerful.  It was not an audible voice that I heard, but the strength of those words and assurance I felt when I heard, "Fear Not!", carried me from South Carolina to Lagos, Nigeria.  You have to know that prior to that flight, which was my first flight, I feared flying.  Matter fact, I said I would NEVER fly unless someone called me and said my child, mother or sister or brother were harmed, and I had to get to them quickly.  I really had a serious fear of flying.  However, I loved my, then fiance, so very much that I did not reflect on the hours I would be in the air on the plane, but I first "spoke out loud to relatives and friends" that I was going to marry him.  After that people tried to convince me that it was very unsafe to travel to Lagos with all the Travel Warnings, and he is a Nigerian.  God may have known I needed encouragement, and he spoke to me unexpectantly in the shower one morning.  Thank God for it.  When the plane shook occassionally due to turbulence, I knew that it would not come down, for God has said to me personally, "Fear Not!". 

When God speaks to your heart (inside of you), you will know it is him.  It is a very personal experience for everyone, so ask him to give you the assurance that it is his voice.

God speaks in divers manners. He can speak to you through His word, He can speak to you through your pastor, He can equally speak to you through inspirational literatures. what is important for you is to understand when God speaks. I don't know for what you want God to speak to you but let me advise you on one and most effiecient way God can speak to you and that is reading His word in a quiet secluded place, through the lines of the Bible God can illuminate a passage that will send just the right message you are waiting for, try this out and tell us how u felt. God bless you in your quest to hear Him.

Well fact is no one can tell u when God is indeed talking to you, but for you to be able to deduce when this manifestation happens and how to watch out and recognise it. God will talk to you at a time that you will hear his words, whether you heed it is another question. But do be careful as the devil can also talk to you in excatly the same manner - There a number of sites and forums you can go to but try this http://www.christianforums.com/
