Does God speak to us directly ?

Yes, God speaks to us all the time. God is always communicating but many times we do not hear, or we hear but do not listen depending on what occupies our minds.

If you are born again, your spirit is made anew. That is; you are a new creation and through your spirit you are able to hear and respond to the voice of God. God also speaks to us through His written Word, and through other people. He gave us the Holy Spirit, the very spirit of God, who dwells in us to teach us, guide us and give us revelation of His Word and His will. Listening and reading the Word of God will keep our minds on the things of God and make it easy for us to recognize His voice and respond to the Holy Spirit.
Unfortunately, the cares of the world and the demands of the flesh tend to crowd our minds and instead of responding to God we end up listening to the news, the devil’s suggestions or the needs of the flesh. How disappointing!
In John 14:23 Jesus said, “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”
