How to Listen to God in Silence: Gain wisdom with our Bible Daily Devotional Podcast.


Life can be incredibly busy and noisy, filled with distractions that pull us in every direction. In the midst of our hectic schedules, we often find it difficult to hear God’s voice. However, 1 Samuel 3:1-10 reminds us of the importance of making time to listen to God in silence.

The Story of Samuel

In this passage, we encounter Samuel, a young boy serving in the temple under the guidance of Eli the priest. Samuel had grown up in the presence of God, but he had never heard God speak directly to him. One night, as Samuel lay down to sleep, he heard a voice calling his name. Thinking it was Eli, Samuel ran to him, but Eli had not called him. This happened three times until Eli realised that it was God calling Samuel.

Too Busy to Listen

Like Samuel, we can often be too busy to listen to God. We fill our days with work, responsibilities, and endless distractions. We may pray, but we struggle to hear God’s response amidst the noise of our lives. God doesn’t want to be an afterthought, squeezed into the margins of our busy schedules. He desires our undivided attention and longs for us to set aside dedicated time to listen to him.

Finding Silence

Creating a space of silence allows us to cultivate a deeper connection with God. It is in the quiet moments that we can hear his gentle whispers and receive his guidance. Just as Samuel had to separate himself from the noise of the temple to hear God’s voice, we too must intentionally seek out silence.

Carve out a specific time each day to be alone with God. Find a quiet place where you can be free from distractions. It may be in your bedroom, a peaceful corner of your home, or even outdoors in nature. Create an atmosphere that promotes stillness and tranquility. Light a candle, play soft instrumental music, or simply sit in silence.

How to Listen to God in Silence

As you enter into this time of silence, begin by quieting your mind and heart. Take a few deep breaths and let go of any worries or distractions. Allow yourself to be fully present in the moment, opening your heart to God’s presence.

Read a passage of Scripture or a devotional to focus your thoughts on God’s Word. Meditate on the words you read, allowing them to sink deep into your soul. Be attentive to any thoughts, impressions, or promptings that come to mind. God speaks to us in various ways, and sometimes his voice may be a still, small whisper.


Listening to God in silence is not always easy, but it is a discipline worth cultivating. When we intentionally set aside time to be still and listen, we position ourselves to receive divine wisdom, guidance, and comfort. Let us make room in our lives for God’s voice to be heard, for in the silence, we find the presence of the Almighty.
