The Ways God Speaks

  1. The Bible (God’s Word)

God speaks to us primarily through His word. It is the language that He uses to speak to us. Therefore, we must be fluent in it in order to hear His voice when He speaks and understand what He is saying.

Romans 12:2 tells us “not to be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Renewing our mind, through reading God’s word, aligns our mind with the mind of God. His view of righteousness and sin is our view. As a result, we are not influenced, persuaded, or pressured to adopt the ways and customs of the world. We think like God, which results in us doing His good, acceptable, and perfect will.

“The word of God is the foundation of knowing the voice of the Holy Spirit.” -David Diga Hernandez

  1. Wisdom

“When we know the word of God , wisdom takes root in us. Wisdom is the Holy Spirit speaking to our spirit.”

  1. Whisper

“The Holy Spirit speaks to our natural mind.” However, you do not want to live your life by the whisper alone. Your desires and emotions can speak very loudly and lead you astray. They can affect your ability to hear the whisper clearly and accurately.

  1. Wonders

The Holy Spirit speaks through dreams and visions. Again, you don’t want to rely solely on “wonders” to hear God’s voice. Your foundation is the word of God and everything you think you hear through “wonders” should align with it and not contradict it.

Further things to consider:

  1. God’s voice is consistent. He does not say one thing one day and another thing the next. However, our voice can be inconsistent because our emotions fluctuate, which affects the consistency of our voice.
  2. God’s voice guides, our voice pushes. Caveat: The Holy Spirit speaks with urgency when there is danger, sin and compromise, and if immediate action is needed.

Flesh pushes. Holy Spirit guides.

  1. The voice of God aligns with His word. The Holy Spirit never speaks against His word.
  2. “God’s voice speaks from a place of peace. Your voice speaks from a place of fear and anxiety. Examine yourself: Deep in the core of you, is there peace?”
  3. God’s voice affirms our identity in Him. The Holy Spirit consistently affirms our identity. He speaks with conviction and certainty.

There are four voices that speak: (1) Self, (2) Satan, (3) Secular, and (4) Spirit. Therefore, it’s important to always be able to discern God’s voice out of all the others.

Be encouraged! You are loved!
