Ways Jesus Speaks to us

1. Through his Word, the Holy Bible

There is little in life that is not addressed in the Bible, along with God's approval or disapproval. "This God--his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him". (Psalms 18:30 (ESV)) Or " In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things" (Hebrews 1:1) All throughout Scriptures Jesus speaks us to us of the love of the Father, His purpose for our lives; about suffering, holiness, charity, compassion, hatred, immorality, conversion and its results as well as God's plan for our lives; His atoning sacrifice and it's meaning to you and to me.

2. Through the voice of friends or other believers

It is not uncommon for Jesus to speak to us through the mouth of other believers. Here we must be discerning because although a person may say they have heard The Lord on your behalf it may not always be the case. But without doubt, with spiritually discerning ears we can hear the voice of the Lord from the mouth of others.

3. Through prayer

When we pray, we communicate with God. Some have said they have heard the audible voice of God, but for most of us, after the words of prayer, in the silence and seeking, we may hear (not audibly) that soft still voice that we know to be God.

4. Through nature and His creation

By spending time outdoors, we can hear Jesus speaking. For myself it’s on a solitary walk on a rainy day with the air alive with his presence.

5. Through Godly coincidences or signs

…that our spirit recognizes as the hand of God encouraging us or warning us about some decision we have struggled with.

6. Through worship

Whether it be sharing communion, singing, playing music, participating in a church service, or serving others in His name, we can sense the presence of Jesus.

7. Through miracles

Miracles still happen, rare as they are.
