All the time. Some call in conscience. I call it the word of God that helps me stay on the right path, accept things that do not go right (I do get angry very often--I am only human) and the belief that a better life is yet to come are the messages I receive from God.
My form of God is the Universe. I ask the universe for answers. And at times, when I really need the answer to something, they are there. It's never a voice, or words forming in my mind or before me, but a feeling, a knowing of the answer. These are usually experienced at times of extreme emotion, when I am fearful or when I am in times of extreme anxiety (which is not very often).
Too rarely for my liking. Most of the time I have too much ego to hear His voice. Even when I realize this shortcoming, it takes a great deal to find the humility necessary to subdue ego.
When I do find the right combination, miracles happen. And as a scientist, that's saying a lot.
Yes, but myself or beliefs, learned behaviour etc., quite often gets in the way.
Yes, everytime I read the Bible. But of course the Bible doesn't tell me what college to go to, what profession to follow or what woman to marry nor how to spend my money. What it does do is give me a window into the mind and heart of God. Having been purchased by the blood of Jesus I'm eager to know what pleases the Lord and to adopt his values and priorities. So I read God's Word and use my God-given powers to reason, confident that he will guide in the process and guard me from overwhelming pitfalls. But I don't expect to hear directly from God. I don't doubt that He can speak. It's just no necessary.
I feel God, if that makes sense, I don't ever hear a voice- but I have alot of anxiety at times, and when I pray, even just a silent prayer in my head in the car or anywhere, I do have a peace that comes over me. I have also found answers that I'm searching for in the Bible, even when I'm not looking for anything specific.
I am not religious in anyway but yes, I do in fact hear from God! I feel at times a deep tugging in my soul, straight to my heart, which is how God speaks to me. When I am still, quiet, and search for him earnestly I do hear him but sometimes theres nothing but I know he's there and it's from my mind being restless when I don't hear and as a result I cannot hear or feel him at those times but I know he's there. Other times, I have heard him directly from within my mind and I know it's not me having a conversation within myself but it's him. I just know and I can feel it...it's hard to explain but God knows his sheep as he's the Father of All! He does say, he will never leave us nor forsake us and he hears us! "He walks with us..He talks with us..." Some things are not made for us to understand and our minds are to closed to hear when God is personally talking to us but eventually at some point in life we all hear but not all can discern that it's God!
As long as we live, we do hear from GOD. But some times we are so much busy we cant hear. As being Muslim, I do pray 5 times a day. That helps me to get to my GOD near enough.
I think God speaks to everyone, but not everyone is listening. Since God is not a human, It does not communicate vocally, personally -- although, It can utilize humans to convey verbal messages, like an instrument of God. I believe that, God being Source Energy, It communicates on an energetic or vibratory level – thoughts, emotions, images, intuition, inspiration, etc. So, we may suddenly have a thought that is not our own. We may have an intuitive knowing about something without knowing how we know. We may have a sudden impulse to do something, or avoid something, without knowing why. We may have an inspiration, or burst of creativity, that seems to come from somewhere other than our own conscious mind, from somewhere outside of ourselves (or is it from deep within?). We can spend time in nature, become still and quiet, and ‘feel’ all the messages of love and appreciation. Messages from God surround us all the time; we need only to listen – not with our ears, necessarily, but with our heart and soul.
"We can spend time in nature, become still and quiet, and ‘feel’ all the messages of love and appreciation." -- this reminds me of William Wilburforce.
I'm ashamed to say that I didn't know who William Wilburforce was until I conducted an Internet search. Well, I got my history lesson for the day. Very interesting. (-:
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.
This day, I hear from God by hearing and reading His Word, The Bible. It is the inspired Word of God.

Can God exist?People say that miracles happen everyday. Maybe miracles do happen. As I see it, we cannot see, hear, or know God until we die. And even then, we do not know if anything is beyond death. Without knowing...

The fractal universe spirals elegantly, beautifully. Nature is the best teacher, the beautiful simplicity: cracks in the sidewalk, trees, the hidden attraction that we all share to those designs. Is it because we are...
