7 Signs God is Talking and You Aren’t Listening

Are you praying and not getting an answer? Take note of these signs God is sending, and you might find the answer you are looking for.

Have you ever had the feeling like you are praying and God just isn’t answering you? At the same time, everyone around you is telling you that God answers every prayer?

In the hustle and bustle of the day, it can be difficult to tell when God is talking to you. The thing to remember is he is always talking, and you just need to listen up.

Here are seven ways God could be reaching out to you in ways you never thought of before:

1. While serving others

Have you ever served someone, and while you were serving, you got the feeling that you should change something in your life? Has someone you served said something that had a life-changing impact in your life? This is God speaking to you. These people are not placed in your life by accident. He places them there.

Nothing brings more peace and happiness in this life than giving of your time to help someone else. God is always more willing to answer our prayers when you are willing to give a lending hand to help someone in need.

2. Studying your scriptures

There is an old saying that says, “When you want to talk to God, you pray. When he wants to talk to you, you read your scriptures.” God speaks through his written word, and nothing can enlighten you more than sitting down and cracking open the Bible. So, the next time you open your scriptures and a particular verse stands out to you, know that God is reaching out to you.

3. Acts of kindness from other people

Have you ever had a bad day, and at the moment you need it most someone approaches you to tell you are an awesome person? Or when everyone in your family is sick, and a friend brings over a huge pot of soup to share?

These are moments when people feel the need to reach out and help you. Anything that’s good must come from God, and it does. Many times people are prompted to reach out and help. God uses them to answer your prayers.

4. Feelings that come to your heart

Often times, when we pray, we expect a huge sign from God. However, most of the time, he speaks to us through the feelings in our heart. Have you ever prayed and felt this overwhelming peace? That is God letting you know he is there for you and is telling you yes to the things you are asking.

Other times, do you get an uncomfortable feeling? A feeling like maybe you shouldn’t do it? That is also God talking. He will never lead us to do anything wrong. That is him telling you no, don’t do that.

Sometimes no feeling can be an answer to our prayers. It could mean, “Just wait a little longer. You’re not ready quite yet.”

5. Tender mercies

“Tender mercies” are like little love notes God sends us to let us know he is there for us. This can be anything: You get a phone call from your mom at the moment you were thinking of her. You didn’t think your car was going to start and it all of sudden starts. These are the moments God is telling you he is there for you. Most the time, you are the only one who is benefited from them because it was exactly what you needed in the moment you needed it.

The best way to see these tender mercies is to pray to have the ability to recognize them when they happen. If you pray for your eyes to be opened to them they will be opened.

6. Thoughts that come to your mind

Sometimes thoughts can come to your mind to do something that you have never done before. In the end, it benefited you from doing it. It could be as simple as trying to solve a math problem for homework in a different way and you find the right answer. That is God speaking to us. This doesn’t mean every thought you have comes from God. However, if you are stumped and all of sudden you get an idea that could be God helping you out.

The best way to distinguish if it is God or not is to not worry about it. Always try to do what is good. God never prompts us to do something bad. If you strive to always do what is good, then you are listening to what God has to say.

7. Accepting God’s will above all else

Many times, God is giving a clear answer, and you are not willing to accept it. It could be that he is prompting you to go in a direction you never thought of before, and it is something you don’t necessarily want to do. However, putting your trust in God and his timing will always pay off in the end. He always has your back. He wants the best for your life. The first step to putting your faith in him is accepting his will above all else.

    God speaks to us through His word. If we think He speaks to us because we have a good feeling inside or we think He speaks to us through our ” little inside voice” , it is not God!

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 2:34 am

      How do you know it’s God, and not just your conscience? God does not speak to us via a little voice. In fact the only one that resorts to that kind of communication is Satan.
      Again God only speaks to us through His word, it has all we need to live Godly lives.😊

    • Leana Croomes

      April 18, 2017 at 3:14 am

      With all due respect Peter van der Laan, My God does speak to me. I believe in the Holy Trinity! However; Satan speaks to us as well, you are correct in that, but he will makes fools
      Of the wise that only hear him! Remember, he was with God and decided to leave. Hence, therefore; cast down. The devil knows how to work the simple minded soul and he does it very well!

    • Leana Croomes

    • Leana Croomes

      April 18, 2017 at 5:51 am

      Satan is a fallen angel! He couldn’t except Gods choice for him therefore he rebelled. If I could offer you a reading from the Bible,please read the New Testament 1 Chronicals chapter 21.-28 It is my prayer you will continue reading, Understanding and learning ! Just as I am a child God,I read and pray daily. I continue to learn every day in Christ! I say the things because you said, basically, you can hear the devil but not Jesus. You, at times can hear both ! Guess what though ? You have the option to listen to the good and forsake evil! Tell that devil in your ear that you are done with him. Go somewhere and SCREAM it out if you have to. God has and will
      Continue to defeat Satan!!!! Pray for guidance, a will to know more about
      Christ and faith . Stepping off of ”
      Soapbox ” now. I only say these things because we all are lost, get lost or need a reminder! So thank you! You just had a hand at folks listening to a
      Conversation about Christ and Jesus and the Holy Spirit!

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 6:09 am

      Im not sure what you are getting at with that scripture? It is an account of how David was disobedient to God by having a cencus despite God ‘s command.

    • Temitope Faith Ologbe

      April 18, 2017 at 6:11 am

      God speaks to us through His word and He also talks to us in our hearts and even in our ears. Jesus heard God speak and He sent us the Holy spirit so that He can speak to us too. God bless you.

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 6:16 am

      Read proverbs! Dont trust your heart, it is deceitful! He speaks to us through the scriptures. The Holy Spirit guides the Christian .the Holy Spirit does not speak to us. Please give me a New Testament scripture that says God speaks to us via our heart or ears

    • Leana Croomes

      April 18, 2017 at 6:28 am

      I’m very happy to know you’ve read proverbs. You’re heart is only deceitful if you seek or lust and become overwhelmed. Wait…. If you’ve read proverbs why are you questioning Gods word
      Speaking and reaching out to you? He was speaking to you!

    • E K Samuel Israel

      April 18, 2017 at 7:03 am

      Peter van der Laan, if you say God speaks only through His Word, which is to say the Bible, how did the writers of the scriptures get the information we see in the Bible? What scripture did they read to write the ones we now have?

    • Leana Croomes

      April 18, 2017 at 7:10 am

      Peter van der Laan Isaiah 44:3 ,God is talking now

    • E K Samuel Israel

      April 18, 2017 at 7:14 am

      Again, you asked for New Testament Scriptures that says God speaks to us.

      1. Who spoke to Saul on the way to Damascus? Or was he reading scripture? I guess not, because he was blind. Acts 9

      2. How do you explain the inner witness of the Spirit spoken of in Romans 8?

      3. When the Spirit spoke to Peter telling him that two men sought him at the gate, was he reading scripture? This is Acts 10.

      4. Paul says to Timothy in 1Timothy 4:1…THE SPIRIT SPEAKETH EXPRESSLY…

      5. The Spirit spoke to Philip saying he should JOIN THIS CHARIOT… he wasn’t reading scripture, God spoke to him. Acts 8

      6. Jesus said, MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE…He didn’t say My sheep READ my words. Even though he said in another place SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES, he says here MY SHEEP HEAR. This makes a distinction between reading scripture and hearing the VOICE of the Lord. John 10:27

    • E K Samuel Israel

      April 18, 2017 at 7:17 am

      GOD SPEAKS TO US, EVEN MORE FREQUENTLY AND CLEARLY THAN HE DID IN BIBLE DAYS.

      HE SPEAKS TO OUR HEARTS (OUR SPIRIT MAN)
      HE SPEAKS TO OUR MINDS
      HE SPEAKS TO OUR EARS (AUDIBLY)
      HE SPEAKS TO US THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 7:19 am

      They were inspired writers! Their task was to write the scriptures for us. Jesus told them that he would send them a helper ( the Holy Spirit) to bring to remembrance all that Jesus told them.
      They were eyewitnesses to the truth. They wrote the New Testament for our benefit.So through the inspired writings of the Apostles we now have Gods word. Peter said that all scripture is inspired ( 2 Peter1:20-21)( 2 Tim 3:16-17)

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 7:20 am

      The scriptures foretold;holy spirit speaks to us through divised ways Rom8:27;1cor2:9;acts5:3;and many more verses.that can guide you more about how God can talk to someone

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 7:55 am

      Isaiah is talking about the coming Saviour. God spoke in the days of old to the prophets and to special selected people . Not to everyday Israelites. In the Church God spoke on to the Apostles or to Paul. To Christians He speaks through His inspired word. Again my original question is, if you hear a voice speaking to you, how do you know it’s God, and not your own conscience or perhaps even the devil?

    • Peter van der Laan

      April 18, 2017 at 8:03 am

      I’m not sure what you are referring to with these scriptures, but they do not conclude that God speaks to us in any other way but through His word. In fact, the acts reference is on how satan spoke to Ananias.

    • Jeanne Chairez

      April 19, 2017 at 2:55 am

      God spoke to me one night when I was putting my son to bed. He put a scripture in my head I had not yet heard. I knew it was scripture bc it sounded like it when it came to me. After my son fell asleep I rushed out to tell my husband about it. Immediately, I googled it to find where it was in the scriptures. I wanted to know what God was saying to me. I was in awe of knowing a scripture that I really hadn’t known. When I read it, I couldn’t figure it out. It didn’t seem to make any sense. He gave me a promise and when the time came to pass a month later, I knew immediately God was preparing me and comforting me of what would come to pass. This is truth. God does speak directly to people today. I can’t make you believe but you can ask God to talk directly to you. When the Holy Spirit speaks, it is literally a calmness, a contentment that will confirm that it can only be of the Holy Spirit. I’m not claiming that satin can’t come at us seeming appealing but he cannot provide a peace like God, nor can darkness and light live together. So you will know when it is God.
