5 Ways God Speaks

The Bible explains 5 Ways that God Speaks to Christians Every day. This 1-minute devotion explains. Are you listening?

God speaks to us every day!

1. He speaks in creation. "For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made..." (Romans 1:20).

2. God speaks through His God-breathed Word which is "useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

3. He speaks to us through His Holy Spirit, helping us apply Scripture to each situation in our lives (John 14:26).

4. God speaks through other believers who help us live in ways that please God (Titus 2).

5. He speaks through circumstances, opening and closing doors and sometimes using supernatural means (Acts 16:6-10). 

But whenever God speaks, He never, never, never disagrees with Scripture, nor does He lead us down selfish, deceptive, or godless paths. 

Make sure it God's voice you're hearing today.

Bible Love Notes


  1. Only problem I have with what's said here is this:I think it's better to write out the verses that you're using to make your points 1st, then paraphrase the verses. People that don't necessarily study the Word may mistake your paraphrase as the actual scripture. That's all.

    1. Hi Roy,
      Actual Scriptures or portions of Scripture are in quotes.

      Scriptures in parenthesis mean the truth in that sentence or paragraph is confirmed in the linked passage. They do not mean that I have paraphrased the verse. They mean I have written something confirmed in that verse.

      Many writers choose not to confirm what they've written with linked passages, but I'm following rules for writing by putting them in parenthesis.

  2. This is very good. If only more Christians would confine their listening to these points, rather than seeking something else — like whatever they want to hear. There's plenty God wants for us to understand about Him. If we just listen to Him — self included.
