God does speak to His children. You just have to be tuned in to hear Him. This week was an interesting, awe-inspiring event for me. It doesn’t take much as you’ll see in a minute. 🙂
My son is having a difficult time at work because he wants to be doing something that isn’t available right now and he called to talk to me about it. My heart went out to him because I’ve “been there, done that…got the T-shirt.” So I began to pray for him. I prayed that the Lord would calm him and give him patience to stick it out until the right thing comes along.
The next morning, I’m doing my devotions and it’s about David. The “Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed” series features Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and Kay Arthur. I’m into Priscilla’s lesson on “Anointed and Disappointed” and the whole time I’m reading it thinking about my son. So I stopped and sent him a text about David and how he was anointed at the young age of 15 but didn’t actually take the throne and rule over Israel for another 22 years. In the meantime, he tended sheep, played a harp for King Saul and took food to his brothers who were engaged in battle. Those were menial, boring jobs. He did it anyway. God used all He put David through to make him the greatest king Israel ever knew…the man after God’s own heart.
I told him to be patient. Your time will come when it’s right.
I got a text back a couple of hours later from him that just said, “That’s weird.”
I sent a text back with….”why’s that weird?” No response.
So, I went over to his house after work with a copy of the study. He had to read that lesson. It just screamed at me the whole time that he needed it.
He finally explained to me that after I talked to him, he kept “hearing” “David, David, David, David” whispered in his spirit and then I sent that text the next day about the same thing.
I love it when God does that. It’s so awesome that THE CREATOR of the Universe wants to have a relationship with me and you!
God speaks in so many ways. Through others sharing His word, His word directly, the Holy Spirit living inside, Bible studies, and even Christian music. We just have to learn to discern that Voice. If it is jumping off the page at you, He’s speaking to you.
Oh yes, God speaks. Are you listening?
