I was wondering if you had any ideas of how I could hear God speak to me, and not just me talking to him. Ive tried to listen, but nothing seems to be working. It is actually very simple. As for the New Testament, the apostles, whose witness is what brings us to faith in Jesus John Their authority comes from the empowerment of the Holy Spirit John One of my friends put it in a great way when he commented on his quiet time one morning. And the Bible is packed full of what God tells us about his will for us.
We might not find advice in the Bible about whether we should work as a dentist or go to Africa. Please pray for my marriage. Please pray for God to take away the addiction of alcohol from my husband. Please pray for each of my 7 children.
10 Ways to Hear from God Regularly
Thank you so much. Cathy, I will pray for you. Our wonderful God is always available to us and will only let us go thru situations that we can handle. Sometimes I think he trust me more than I trust myself but I know he knows better than me. I find comfort in prayer and giving my difficult troublesituation to Christ. I believe if we are seeking Him, even if there is no clear direction we can move ahead. He gives us freedom within boundaries, and I believe He will show us if there is something specific He wants us to do.
Not at all, Kristi! The Awesome Blessing of Praying with Friends. Deb, I loved and needed this when I first saw several months ago, and I love and need it again today.

Thank you and God Bless looking forward to more of your helpful blogs. I needed this today. I am a 43 yr old woman who has drifted away from God. My life is living me at the moment instead of me living my life. Please pray for me. Cathy, God loves you and is always with you, waiting for you to let him in your life and heart.
I will pray for you. Please pray for Him to guide your life from now on and He will take you on your best path, it might be different than someone else because you are unique and precious in His eyes. I often wish that God would just give me a flashing billboard to tell me what to do. If I just follow these steps, that might be just as good!
I so needed to do this today! They have been apart for a year but have stayed in touch and continued to see each other off and on. It seems as though there is a force keeping them from connecting completely, which is sad as you can see how happy and how they complete each other when they are together. They are such a perfect example together of Gods work.
In your name, I pray. Thank you for this. I recently started reading my bible and verses more whenever I feel I need to be closer to God. I pray when I am grateful and I pray when I am struggling. This is a wonderfully inspiring blog.

Its a slow day by day journey for healing, but I know Gods hand is on my heart and keeping me from pushing over my limits. Thanks so much for visiting Counting My Blessings.

This is a tough one. My husband wants a divorce after 30 years. I have been trying to work things out with him for the past year. We have 5 children from ages 33 down to 10, and one grandson. We made the decision that I quit my job and stay home after our third child, so he could run his business and pursue his career. I have been home for over 20 years now. I am 51 now.
So, yes I have alot of questions! There really are no words! This certainly is not His plan. I too, have been hurt and rejected by two people I loved with all my heart. Yes, He gave people free will and sometimes they use it selfishly. I can tell you … God used that horrible time and hurt to grow me closer to Him.
He gave me courage and strength to do life on day at a time and held me close through it all. I praying for you to feel an extra measure of His loving presence. My husband and I were wondering the move inlocation and vocation was the right thing or our thing. I would ask him tonshow us signs this was right. He gave me a garden very prosperous which i have never have been before all season. But it was twofold it kept me busy while my youngest went away to college and my oldest finds herself. So I am planted where I belong.
This is the article or topic that I need this moment of time. I know for sure that God takes care of me and my concerns and at the same time I am scared that what if my concerns and desires are not. In this case I know very clearly that I need to exert morw effort to trust everything to Him and be dependent on Him wholely.
May you can help me to understand clearly what God wants and plan for me and surrender my life to Him…. You just said it yourself, what God wants is your life surrendered to Him. I believe we just do our best to respond to His love with obedience to His Word and spend time with Him in prayer. The key is to forget about formulas and gimmicks for hearing from God, and to focus instead on developing the kind of relationship with God that will empower you to hear God speaking regularly. The closer you get to God, the more you can enjoy ongoing conversations with Him, both listening and hearing from Him, and the more God will use those conversations to transform you into the person He wants you to become.
Here are 10 ways how you can hear from God and recognize his voice regularly: By design, the way you hear best from God is in the context of a friendship with Him. God intends for you to figure out His will freely and intelligently as you engage in regular conversations with Him. Honestly reflect on why you want to hear from God. Or is it for a selfish reason, such as wanting to feel righteous or comforted?
Confess and repent of any wrong motives.
Ask God to give you an openness to hear and respond faithfully to what He wants to tell you.
