He is not a man, you can just ask Questions of inquiry, to know why he as created you and what purpose he wants you to accomplish on the earth.
There are many times when men in the bible inquire of the lord and he answered them; some of these instances are; David inquire in 1 Samuel 30 : 8 – And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
6. Pray for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit : This is a jackpot requirement for receiving from God, The Holyspirit! The more you are filled with the Holy Spirit, the more you will be able to hear from God. God communication to us basically are done via his spirit, so having the Holy spirit which is the promise of the father makes us eligible to hear God’s Voice continually.
The Bible says; as many that are led by the spirit of God, they are the sons of God – Romans 4 : 18, so the leading and directions of the spirit of God makes you a true bona fide son of God.
The experience of a Lifestyle of the spirit begins with the Fresh Baptism of the Holyspirit, when the Spirit of God rest upon you, you begin to live in the fullness of God’s divine instruction.
The Holyspirit is the promise of God through JESUS, made manifest on the Pentecost and we also can have him today; John 14 : 16 says – Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit 15. If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. 16, And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever — 17, the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and He will be in you.
Also in John 16 : 7, Jesus said, – Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Also in John 16 : 13, we saw the Holyspirit as a teacher, who guides and instructs, – But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit talks about the fullness of the Holy Spirit upon the life of a a Believer, and it is the beginning of the release of the unction of the spirit, which is the “Anointing” of the Holy ghost! Which represents the hand of God upon the life of a man, which delivers authority always!

You too can have this experience and even more, if you believe in the word of God, the promise of God and you pray for it, it shall come.
