God's words are pure and he enjoys speaking, and you would not be wrong to ask him to speak to you out loud.

I heard a number of people say God spoke out loud. I've heard God speak , but not audibly about four times. other times its like "is that me or you God" and i have to really get out of my own way to hear Him.
But He does speak - so ask -
---Andrea on 9/22/07

God still does speak in the audible voice, I have heard it 6 times.
Pray and ask God to direct you to the Church of His choice with the Pastor from His heart. That pastor will be able to guide you effortlessly as if God Himself were talking to you. I did that and the Pastor I have speaks on exactly what I am going through each sermon.

We've moved beyond the OT, we're under the new covenant now, New Testament. We have the Holy Spirit. However, Matt 4:7, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'"

It most definitely isn't wrong to want to speak to God. In fact nothing pleases God more than when his children speak with and to him. Yes he does answer your questions, prayers and concerns. I find it very helpful to journal these conversations as I am able to make better sense of what's going on in my mind this way and it allows God to answer me more readily as I'm not being distracted by other things.

I agree that you need to silence, so doing this once the children are in bed or before they get up makes a big difference for me. My spiritual growth has increased hugely by having regular conversations with God. I also enjoy this so much that when I miss a day or so I really feel 'lost' without it. My prayer life and Bible Studies have also benefited from these times too.

Talking to God brings you closer to him and strengthens your faith, giving you the tools needed to resist all the devices of satan much, much easier!! God Bless You Always.

Karen, to encourage you, you might want to start asking God questions. He will definitely answer you. I don't know what form he'll use (His word-the bible, a preacher, a friend, etc.,). But I asked him something last week and was in awe when He answered me the very next day. It was a scripture that jumped right into my spirit man. Try asking Him questions. I bet He answers you and blesses you mightily.

By the way folks, when Jesus asked on the cross, "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Wasn't there thunder and something else happened? What was it? I can't remember right now, sorry.
---donna6598 on 2/21/07

buttons--- I do believe you are correct. God gives us what we desperately need.
---catherine on 2/20/07

susie has a good point, maybe God hasn't spoken out loud to you is cause you can and possibly are hearing him just fine in the quiet.
---buttons on 2/20/07

Oh, But God does speak to you directly. There is something about God, That when He pays you a visit, And tells you SOMETHING, especially in relationship to the word of God, it sticks. And I get it quicker than getting it from studying the word of God. LETS all praise God.
---catherine on 2/20/07

Speak to God the way you'd want him to speak with you, you'd want him to be patient, honest, kind, and loyal.

Actions speak louder than words and this communication is what God desires most.

LET NOBODY discourage you from your dream to hear God's voice, there's nothing wrong with it, and in hard times he doesn't despise our sorrows or longings, but meets us with understanding and mercy.
---Pharisee on 2/20/07

I think one of the reasons why God doesn't speak as much today as in old is because we aren't listening as well as they did. Too much distraction. Turn off radio, television, everything. Get out the Bible and read and pray. And, then LISTEN!!!!
---Susie on 2/20/07

No, you would not be wrong. And in both testaments God spoke out loud to people.
---Eloy on 2/20/07

God speaks to us through His word. His word is His voice. Just curious, why does it have to be out loud? It might come in the form of thunder and you might not recognize Him.
Stay in His word, ask Him what you wish, and let him respond to you either in His word, or through someone or through an anointed preacher/teacher. All the times God has spoken to me, I knew it was Him.

I have only ever met one person who said that she heard the audible voice of God. If God wishes to speak to us this way He will but it must be His choice not ours. We are to be open to communication from His in which ever form He chooses and then act upon what He 'says'.
---m.p.a. on 2/20/07

Isn't it sad that we live in a world filled with Unbelievers. That they worship other gods, That they cannot hear from.
---catherine on 2/20/07

remember how he spoke to the small quiet inner voice...i suggest u just be still and listen, get away from the worries of the day and listen and focus on God
---mark on 2/19/07

You can surely tell the people that God never talks to. The very few that He favors, other people make lite of THEM. What a shame that more people don't know how to hear from God. Ofcourse, you have to belong to Him first, to even get to first base with Him. What an absolute crying shame. And God is so much FUN.

But God DOES speak to you: through Scriptures, through circumstances, and through other people.

What you need to pray for, instead, is sensitivity to His voice.
---Jack on 2/19/07

God has a mouth and you have ears so I see no reason why you shouldn't want to hear Him. But don't get obsessed with it. It may happen and it may not. He has lots of ways of communicating.
---john on 2/19/07

Lets just all of us be so happy that we serve a God that can talk. "FOR my sheep will know my voice".
---catherine on 2/19/07

Nope. Abraham, in Genesis 18, spoke to God and he was under an Old covenant. You, as the righteousness of God, have a right to hear from God.(2Corinthians 5:21)(Matthew 7:7)

Sure, why not. If you want God to speak to you out loud, ask him to. Have faith and believe that He can.
---Chris on 2/19/07

For whos glory & edification? Your own? Or His? What glory would God have speaking to you out loud? This seems like a request of the flesh, not the Spirit.
---Ryan on 2/19/07

I see nothing wrong with asking God to speak to you out loud. I know some people who have heard His voice.
---Susie on 2/19/07

Why do you want that? What would it accomplish?
