God Speaks - How God Speaks


God Speaks - How God Speaks

John 10:27
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 

Jeremiah 33:3
Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.


Hearing God's voice is the central way we maintain our freedom.


  • All Christians have the ability to hear God's voice.

  • We mature in learning to hear His voice.

Hebrews 5:12
" need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God."
8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord. 

  • God is not limited in the ways He can speak.

Hebrews 1:1-2
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways...

  • We must take time to be with God in order to hear Him.


God speaks in various ways:

  1. Scripture

    2 Timothy 3:16-17
    All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
  2. Peace

    Colossians 3:15
    Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts... 
  3. A sense, an impression or conviction

    Acts 15:28
    It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us...
  4. Through other people

    1 Corinthians 2:4-5
    And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. 5 I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God.
  5. Visually

    Acts 10:9-11
    Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and white the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.
  6. Still small voice

    1 Kings 19:12
    12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
  7. Unconventional ways

    Job 33:14
    For God does speak—now one way, now another—
        though no one perceives it.
