Oh, yes, always through prayer, reading His Word, and then sometimes when I am just thinking of Him while driving or doing whatever, a thought will come into my head. I make sure prior to praying to repent of any sins the Holy Spirit reveals to me, as I do not want any barrier (sin) between me and my Heavenly Father. When we have that personal and intimate relationship with our LORD GOD, it is just like any other relationship, the communication goes both ways. Praise Him!!!
When I was 30, I really did not realize I had a lot of unforgiveness in my heart, and I was just sitting alone back then at work at my desk, and everything was so quiet as everyone had gone to lunch. At that time, I was not walking with the LORD as I should have been, and so I did not hear from Him in such a very long time, as I did not call out to Him, but He never gave up on me. But, while thinking of my dad, I had a thought, where are you LORD (as a child, He was always there for me, and He called me "dear child") and I just heard Him just like I did when I was a child, and He said, "dear child, I am right here --- I never left you! " I was so thrilled, as I knew His voice, and that is when He revealed to me that I had unforgiveness in my heart that I really did not even realize until that day about my dad, and his disease of addiction to alcohol. Once I forgive my dad, it was as if the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders, and then I was able to be the person who He meant for me to be. I had a similar experience when I saw a big cluster of calcifications on my left breast during a mammogram, before they even told me, I knew as He said it so gently, and I prayed to Him right then and asked Him to heal me of the DCIS cancer, and then a peace, His peace, that surpasses all understand fell upon me. I had not one bit of doubt He would heal me and He did!!! He knows His sheep, and His sheep know His voice.
