Five Ways God Speaks to Us

Five Ways God Speaks to Us

When counseling young couples, I explain that in general God speaks to us in five ways, including prayer, the Bible, teaching, worship, and through other believers. The first two ways are typically disciplines that we participate in through one-on-one time with the Lord, while the other three are typically found through attending church and fellowshipping with other believers. This is why I believe regularly attending a local church is so important… Without being around other believers and being under regular teaching of God’s Word, we could potentially be limiting the ways that God communicates with us.

1.      Prayer:

James 5:14-16

Ephesians 6:18

Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

1 John 5:14, “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

2.      The Bible:

Joshua 23:6

Hebrew 4:12

2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

3.      Teaching:

Deuteronomy 11:18-19

Matthew 5:19

Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;

4.      Worship:

Psalm 85:6

 Psalm 99:5 

Psalm 150: Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty expanse. 

Praise Him for His mighty deeds;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.

Praise Him with trumpet sound;
Praise Him with harp and lyre.
Praise Him with timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise  the Lord.
Praise  the Lord!

 Philippians 2:9-11, “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

5.      Through Other Believers:

 Hebrews 10:25

Romans 12:1-2

Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.”
