The Importance Of Hearing God’s Voice

“When we hear His call and respond appropriately, there will be no limit to what God can and will do through His people. But if we do not even recognize when He is speaking, we are in trouble at the very heart of our relationship to Him.”

Henry Blackaby, What The Spirit Is Saying To The Churches (2003)

It’s not unusual for writers of movies, television shows, and forms of media to mock Christians hearing the voice of God.

Oh, how sad for those writers.

When God speaks, His voice offers truth. Those who are blessed to hear His holy word, then affirm it to others, walk a path to righteousness. God’s word, the written word and those specific words He shares individually, is not useless foolishness or babble as some make it out to be.

When we are blessed to hear His voice we learn His teachings, His faithfulness, love, and His steadfastness.

God’s voice is not limited to being verbal; His voice appears in many forms. The more we know God and commune with Him, the more we are open to His voice in many forms. It appears in a helping hand, a comforting smile, the Sunday sermon, and often – it appears in that still small voice after prayer.

Actually, one finds God’s voice is projected physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Do not deny God when you do hear His voice, for He always leads along the right path.

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."


Have you invited Jesus into your heart? Now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at

“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen.”

Blessings to you as you receive redemption through Jesus.
