The 7 Teachers: 1 God’s Voice

In over 30 years as a youth pastor, one of the top 3 questions I got was, “How can I heart God’s voice?”

It was one of my big questions as a young boy learning to follow Jesus.

Here is a couple of things I’ve learned.

God is a Spirit being. John 1:18 no man has seen God because God is Spirit. That’s why Jesus became a human being to make God know to us.

God created you as a spirit being, so God speaks to your spirit.

Sometimes, but rarely, He speaks with an audible voice 

God talked with Adam in the Garden of Eden
Genesis 3:8-9

God talked to Abraham and Abraham started the Jewish nation we call Israel
Genesis 12:1-4

God talked with Moses
Genesis 8:1

God talked with Samuel as a young boy
1 Samuel 3:10-11

God spoke to Jeremiah
Jeremiah 1:5-9

God spoke from Heaven
Matthew 3:17 & Luke 9:35

God spoke to Elijah while he was alone sitting quietly in a cave.
1 Kings 19:9-18

Make time in your life to be alone with God.

Our lives are so busy that we can’t or don’t hear His voice.

To me, this is the best way to hear and learn God’s voice. When we’re alone and quiet, asking God to speak to us.

He said “seek me and you will find if you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13

Acts 17:27-28

I pray you will spend time alone seeking to hear God’s voices.
