How do you know when God is talking to you?

Are you reading God's Word? He speaks to me the most through Bible reading. Also, when Scriptures come to mind in a certain situation, I know it is from God. Nothing will every be from God if it is contrary to His word.

According to the Bible - in a still small voice... and it also says His children KNOW His voice (just like sheep with a shepherd).
You just KNOW when He is speaking to you because it will always align with God's Word and it will never lead you astray.

Heather got it in a nutshell.
If you know God's word have a relationship with him as your LORD and saviour, then you will know His voice. He will never lead you contrary to his, yet He will also sometimes speak to His people through witnesses and visions as well as situations. In all honesty there have been times that God as spoken to me through a show on TV, through a song and as Carla said through the kids saying things they couldn't possibly discern. Yet knowing it's God all comes down to knowing His word and trusting that He does speak to His people.

Heather is right. Without knowing His Word, you won't be able to tell if 'the voice' you hear is His or not. Sometimes I hear Him in an almost audible voice and I turn around to see if I can see Him. Sometimes it's just a feeling. My husband cut 2 1/2 fingers off a couple years ago. We were faced with the decision--do we have them re-attached, or just go with what he had. We prayed, right there in the emergency room for an answer, and this wonderful peace just came over us, and we knew that trying to re-attach them would be more detrimental, and, in his case, dangerous, given that he is a builder/remodeler. We were confident that God was with us, and He would make things all right. And He did. It all went so smoothly, the healing of his stubs, the physical therapy, the transition to finding different ways to tackle a project that there was NO DOUBT it was from Him.
Sometimes it's a song on the radio at just the right time. Sometimes it's your little child telling you things they couldn't possibly be able to discern.
God always finds a way to communicate to His children.
God bless, honey
