Because we are not fully accepting our freedom in Christ, we are living in bondage and disobedience which is keeping us from hearing from God . Sin and disobedience are what desensitizes us from hearing His voice (Ephesians 4:17-18). They harden our hearts and put us in a position where we can ‘ t hear from Him.
Not all that we ask or request from God will be given to us. He may hear all our prayers . He may answer all of them. 15 Signs God Will Answer Your Prayers According to the Bible You practice righteousness. You are faithful. You don’t have any doubt. You have patience. What you ask is according to His will.
An “oracle” is an “utterance, a spokesman or mouthpiece.” God speaks through preachers and teachers, but He can also speak through our spouse, kids, friends and even enemies. God uses human channels to speak words of prophecy, tongues and interpretation and words of wisdom and knowledge (1 Cor. 12:8-10).
God speaks through thoughts and feelings No, but he will help you “hear” him through thoughts and feelings.
God may be silent but he is not absent. Matthew 1:23 says, “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “ God with us”). When you hear God’s silence and feel his absence, trust his presence. God is with us and God is active even when God is silent .
In the Abrahamic religions, the voice of God is a communication from God to human beings, heard by humans as a sound with no apparent physical source.
Sin – Pride (I.e. saying, “I don’t really need God .”) will hinder the hearing of God’s voice every time. When we are in sin, whether pride, immorality, unbelief, etc., the only thing we will hear is the conviction of God . But, if we do not deal with our sin, our ears will become more and more deaf to God’s voice .
Yes. “He is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb. 4:12). He not only knows your thoughts but what you intended to think.
Is praying to God in your head the same as praying to God out loud? No. Although both forms of prayer have their own significance, their own time and place. If your prayer takes on the form of meditation, it is going to be an inner conversation with God, a silent ”in your head ” prayer .
Faith, in turn, is based on our conviction that God raised him from the dead on the third day. If we believe in Jesus, then we must believe that his God and Father wants to hear our prayers and that they do , so far as God sees fit, really alter the world.
To talk to God , open up your heart. You need to listen for a response. If you aren’t listening, you won’t hear him . Trust that what he tells you is the best thing for you.
Right Attitudes to God’s Revelation Be attentive to his words. Always be in his presence. Be patient. Be humble.
God speaks encouragement to us ! God likes to let us know we’re on the right track. When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, as a sign that He was entering into His public ministry, God spoke from Heaven to confirm who Jesus was! God’s voice can feel like confirmation while you’re on your journey.
