Hearing from God

Bible verses about hearing from God.

We have a deep desire to hear from God. We look for His guidance in every decision we make, whether it's big or small. However, there are times when we struggle to hear His voice clearly or at all. We feel lost, confused, and in need of direction. In these situations, we turn to the Bible for answers. Throughout Scripture, there are many verses that encourage us to listen to God's voice and follow His lead. In this blog post, we'll be exploring 10 different Bible verses about hearing from God.

Isaiah 30:21 - "Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'"

This verse reminds us that God is always guiding us and leading us in the right direction. We just need to listen to His voice and follow His lead.

John 10:27 - "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."

Jesus uses the analogy of a shepherd and his sheep to explain the importance of listening to His voice. We are His sheep, and He is our shepherd. If we listen to His voice and follow Him, we will find peace and security.

Psalm 46:10 - "Be still, and know that I am God."

Sometimes, we need to be still and quiet in order to hear God's voice. This verse reminds us to take a break from the busyness of life and focus on God. When we do, we will experience His presence and hear His voice more clearly.

1 Kings 19:11-12 - "Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper."

This story from the life of Elijah reminds us that God doesn't always speak in dramatic ways. Sometimes, He speaks in a gentle whisper that is easy to miss. We need to be attentive and receptive to His voice, even when it's quiet.

Proverbs 3:5-6 - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."

God speaks to us through His Word, the Bible. This verse reminds us that the Bible is alive and powerful, and that we can find guidance and direction for our lives through its pages.

Nehemiah 8:10 - "Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
