  1. I love all the beautiful quotes. I oftentimes have people ask me how to hear God. Other than telling them that its different for everyone and that it is even different ways that He speaks to the same person...I really don't know what to tell them. What I always go back to is that "If you are hearing a similar thing from many different sources, God may be trying to speak to you or get your attention.

    Thank for sharing.

    1. I agree about hearing the same thing from many different sources and then praying for confirmation.

  2. I don't know any great quotes, but I thank you for your fine collection!

  3. Loved reading through these wonderful quotes about Hearing God. I am in a study with our Pastor Search committee and it's all about listening for God's voice; I am having a real problem discerning if I am hearing GOD's voice or just a bunch of mumble jumble in my head!

    Thanks for sharing; I jotted down a couple of these quotes!!

    1. I know Barbara, I am right there with you with decisions I need to make. Is it God's voice my voice, because that is what I want to do. Very hard.

  4. Love these quotes! My favorite quote about hearing from God is simply a promise in His word: "Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know!" Yes, please! (Found in Jer33:3)

  5. Love these quotes & scriptures! Here's one from Maya Angelou: "Listen to yourself. And, in that quietude, you might hear the voice God." And, one of my favorite scriptures about hearing God is: "Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning... Show me where to walk, for I give myself to YOU." Psalm 143:8 NLT
