Signs God Is Speaking To You

1. His Word
One of the simplest ways for God to speak is through His word. Every line of Scripture is God-breathed and useful for showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, and training us to live God's way. The Word of God helps us to gain insight into His will and furthers our spiritual maturity for the tasks God has for us.

2. His Thoughts
Thoughts, ideas, and convictions that persist over time and keep coming back to your mind can be a sign God is communicating to you. It may be a gentle nudging that compels you to act on something even if it goes against your natural inclination.

3. Comfort and Peace
God speaks to us in moments of loneliness, brokenness, hurt, confusion, and uncertainty. God speaks to us through encouragement and love, alongside peace that surpasses our understanding. His presence is always with us, and He is talking to us at all times.

4. In Line With Scripture
When attempting to discern God’s will, it’s important to ask yourself if what you’re hearing is in line with Scripture. God will never ask you to do something that’s not in line with His Word. If what you’re hearing doesn’t make you more like Christ, then it’s not from God.

5. Spiritual Sensitivity
Are you becoming more sensitive to the presence of God? Are you praying often and developing a deeper devotion to the Lord? If the answer is yes, then God is speaking to you. He is trying to show you the importance of a life dedicated to Him and to being in communion with Him.

6. Seeking Wise counsel
Seeking out wise council is always a good idea when making a major decision. Pray over the situation and then share your thoughts with trusted individuals who can help you consider both sides of the matter in light of Scripture.

7. Conversation with Jesus
Spending time in conversation with Jesus is the best way to recognize God’s voice and to interpret His messages. Talking to Jesus is like talking to a friend and understanding the He loves you and desires only the best for you.

Ways To Be Sure It's God Speaking To You

1. Fasting And Prayer
When trying to interpret a situation, spend time in prayer by yourself and with trusted individuals. During the process of prayer and fasting, God will give insight into His plans for you and provide clarity and direction.

2. Biblical Study
The best way to interpret God’s voice is to study the Bible and to spend time studying Jesus and His life. Ask yourself if what you’re hearing is making you more like Christ and in line with Scripture.

3. Listening To The Holy Spirit
When making decisions, ask the Holy Spirit for guidance to confirm what you may be hearing. To be sure it’s the Holy Spirit speaking, make sure what you’ve heard is not contrary to His Word and does not exalt yourself.

4. Seeing God At Work In Your Life
When God is speaking to you, look for evidence of Him working in your life. When God speaks, He will also show you a way out and provide the resources necessary to move towards the direction given.


Days may go by, time may pass, and circumstances will change, but God never changes. He is always speaking to us, in our actions, our thoughts, our feelings, our words, and everything else around us. Knowing when God is talking to you is essential to have a mature relationship with Him and to have the right understanding of His will for your life.

We can recognize His voice with some of the signs listed above, such as through His Word, His thoughts, comfort and peace, seeking wise counsel, seeing His work at play, and looking for answers in prayer and fasting. Make sure to seek out what is pleasing to God and don’t hesitate to seek help if you are feeling lost or confused. God is speaking to you, and that should be enough for you!

Remember that God has good intentions for you and He is always trying to guide you, whether through His Word, through people, or through circumstances. So take a deep breath, find some time to be alone with Him, and ask Him to lead you in the right direction.
