How Does God Communicate With Us?

"God spoke to me," or "The Lord told me," are common phrases. What does that imply? Did they hear a voice like Samuel's? How can I communicate with God?


We primarily hear from God by regularly reading the Bible and following its instructions. God's message to humanity is contained in the Bible. The Bible contains everything we need to know to live the Christian life. God reveals his truth to us as we spend time meditating on his Word.


1. GOD SPEAKS TO US VIA SCRIPTURE.

"All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

2. GOD SPEAKS THROUGH GIFTED TEACHERS WHO GET THEIR INFORMATION FROM THE BIBLE.

"We each have different gifts, depending on the grace given to us." If your gift is prophesying, prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, serve; if it is teaching, teach; if it is encouraging, encourage; if it is giving, give generously; if it is leading, lead diligently; if it is showing mercy, show mercy cheerfully" (Romans 12:6-8).


3. GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH TROUBLES

"Before I was afflicted, I strayed, but now I obey your command." You are good, and your actions are good; teach me your decrees" (Psalm 119:67-68).

4. THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKS FOR GOD

"However, the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you" (John 14:26).


5. GOD SPEAKS VIA HIS CREATION

"The heavens proclaim God's glory; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." They pour forth speech day after day, and reveal knowledge night after night" (Psalm 19:1-2).


6. GOD SPEAKS THROUGH WHATEVER OR WHOEVER HE CHOOSES, BUT ALWAYS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE BIBLE "For God does speak — now one way, now another — though no one perceives it" (Job 33:14).
