How Do We Hear from God?


Does God speak to people today? If so, how do we hear from God? How can we be sure that we are following the direction he has set for us?

Throughout history people have claimed to hear from God and used that as an excuse to say and do some very ungodly things. Is there a way to know if we’re hearing from God or just following our own agenda?

My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98five Sonshine FM is Rev Dr Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.

Today Ross talked about hearing from God. We talked about some practical steps that will help us discover where God is leading us. Ross also gave some warnings that are helpful in seeking direction.

  • This is really something I have been hearing about lately. Artie Davis, a pastor who wrote Craveable, talked about it. Someone asked me to watch a video and consider showing it to the church. I did so and was troubled by several things, one of which is about a man who hears the audible voice of God every day. Did Dr. Clifford write anything with more details? i do like what he said about Plan B.
