God wants to have a relationship with all of us. He wants to be the number one person we come to when we run into problems, when we are scared, or need someone to talk to. God gives us the tools we need to reach out to Him and create that dialog. However sometimes, we choose to turn to other options. We forget that God is there for us, feel He doesn’t have time for us, or any number of excuses.

1 It keeps coming back to you.

If God is not changing your situation, it’s because he needs to change you. He needs to prepare you for the place He is bringing you to. He needs to make sure you are in a place to receive the seed He is going to plant.

2 Doors are closing.

Doors closing in your life may seem like a great defeat, but in reality they could be one of your greatest blessings. You don’t want to waste time by going through a wrong door, do you? Then celebrate when God closes one. It wasn’t for you. If God wanted that door open, He would have opened it. If He closed the door to something seemingly wonderful, imagine what He really has in store for you.

3 Pushing Out of Our Comfort Zone

It is normal for us to create our own comfort zones and want to stay in that comfort zone, but there comes a point in our lives when it’s important to step out of our comfort zones. We begin to do this during times of transition, growth and transformation. Yes, God does and can come after our comfort zones to get through to us. If you’re experiencing transition or life change, ask God to speak to you and give Him your undivided attention. If you feel He is trying to push you out of the box you’ve stuck yourself in, don’t push back. Instead, let yourself open up to these new experiences. These life changes might be a big part of His plan for you.

4 Feeling of Uneasiness

On the flip side, God might make you feel that something is just not right and you have no sense of peace. If you feel like something is off, God might be trying to get your attention. There’s a feeling of overall uneasiness in your life. Sometimes distraction can deafen our ears to the voice of The Holy Spirit.

In this case, the absence of peace is a loud and clear sign that God is trying to get you to pay more attention to Him. Feeling uneasy can provide us great clarity. It’s important that we trust that God is with us in these moments of uneasiness. It’s also imperative that we trust in God when we’re not sure what direction to take

5 Deeper Spiritual Sensitivity

In addition to more energy, your spiritual sensitivity will heighten and engage in deeper understanding. Simple activities, like watching a movie or TV show, will speak to you in different ways that have depth of meaning others might not get. God might be blessing you with knowledge and wisdom you didn’t even know you had. This is one of His ways to get your attention. You developing deeper spiritual sensitivity is important to God because He wants you to take your spiritual walk seriously. Second Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” If we focus our attention on God, our spiritual sensitivity will grow.

6 Through people

Another way God brings us guidance is through people messengers. The Lord will use family, close friends and even total strangers to speak a word into your life that will pierce an area God is trying to deal with. Sometimes, a random person you meet will mention something that you desperately needed to hear or know, that you wouldn’t have otherwise heard had you not come across their path. God can use these people to bring you the gospel and give you solid advice. These people want the best for you, and God will choose people that you trust to really deliver important messages. Rely on your friends during the dark times. If you are feeling divinely guided by someone, God might be trying to get your attention.
