I think 99% of the time we don't listen but absolutely God speaks to us. God speaks to me through his word, other believers and his Holy Spirit - sometimes music, books, etc. The most prominent memory of God speaking was through my husband (a fellow believer), several years ago we had a miscarriage, a few months later we were pregnant again. One day I went to the bathroom and was having bleeding again. We were both so scared, we did not want another miscarriage. We agreed to call our pastor and the elders and have them come anoint me with oil and pray (James 5). When they left my husband asked "how do you feel", small in my faith I answered him "what do you mean, they just left" and he said "Sarah, reach out and touch the cloak of Jesus" - reminding me of the woman in the Bible who was bleeding, touched the edge of Jesus garment and was healed. Her faith healed her, she believed so much in Jesus and his power that even just touching his garment healed her. God used him and our circumstance to increase my faith and bring me to a deeper level of relationship with Him. Our son is now 7 years old :) After my husband encouraged me, I went to the bathroom and the bleeding had immediately ended.
