How do you know when God is speaking to you? Or is it just your inner mind playing tricks?

Question by Deep Thinker: How do you know when God is speaking to you? Or is it just your inner mind playing tricks?
God speaks through your mind and heart, yes, and reveals things to those faithful to Him. But how do you know when God is speaking to you or if it is just your mind playing tricks? Will you ever be uncertain at all if He is actually speaking (or guiding, etc.) you?
Thank you for all the answers. Please see my other questions as well? Because I am feeling quite confused about a few different things. And I don’t think Google is such a reliable source because the sites on there can be edited by anyone.

    That is easy. God doesn’t speak to you. That is satan talking to you. God just lets you know when you figure out things.

    And you know for a fact when it is God. It is Pure energy surging through your soul. No mistaking it.

    When we say “speak” we dont mean it literally. Its through actions. Things happen, and when u start connecting the dots you understand why the first thing happen, and how it effected your choices, and then know that if it wasnt for the previous misfortunate you would’ve done things wrong.

    Whenever they think they are hearing what they want to hear, it’s God speaking. And, whenever they think they are hearing what they don’t want to hear, it’s Satan speaking. Rather simple, really.

    God and Satan are their imaginary friends. They say and do whatever the believer wants them to say and do.

    It is nothing but your mind playing tricks on you. Or possibly a severe mental illness, although that is largely a more extreme form of the same thing.

    When you start thinking your imaginary friend is actually talking to you it is a time to worry.

    Well, since God is the consciousness of all living things, well that doesn’t really mean anything important. Anyways, it is hard to know if another beings is talking to you telepathically or not, but you get used to it with practice. A good way to know if real communication is taking place, ask for something to happen in our physical plane, right in-front of you. Whether it be moving an object, showing themselves to you, giving you certain emotional feelings. Good luck.

    Peace and Namaste

    It can be difficult to be sure.

    He has spoken to me; that much I am sure of. Sometimes I did not recognize it until later, when things just “resonated” with what I was given. That is one of the keys, actually: if you hear a voice telling you to go kill your neighbour: that isn’t God! People try to use that excuse that “God told me,” but, if what you are hearing is not what you would expect God to say, then, it probably isn’t Him.

    That doesn’t mean you will always hear what you like! Far from it, I’ve found, especially when I want to go one way, and He is suggesting I go another.

    It can come in many forms: from events around you, to Him speaking to you through other people, to a compulsion for something, and, yes, even that voice in the head that no-one wants to talk about, for fear of being called insane. It isn’t common, but, it does happen. And, not to everyone (as far as I know).

    A bit of it is experience. The better you get to know Him, the easier it is to tell when it is Him speaking. I’ve known two people that God had to send angels to, they were so far removed from Him (basically, laying in a gutter). As you get closer, the communication often becomes more clear.
