Remember the homework I gave you during my sermon on Sunday, March 24th? As you continue to fast this week (and even if you’re not fasting), I challenge you to do the homework I gave you about listening to God. I have no doubt that You will discover how many times the Lord has been speaking to you.
If you weren’t at the worship service this past Sunday, here’s the homework I gave:
- Take some time to write down all the times you think God talked to you in the last month. Consider all the ways He may have tried to reach you to instruct, guide, bless, or correct you.
- Slow down and make time for this list. You would see that God talks to us in a myriad of different wants, maybe even in ways we weren’t aware of (a Scripture verse, a song, a conversation you had, a recent email or note, or maybe through a time you or a loved one got healed).
Be alert. I think you might be stunned to see how God talks to you, if you just take the time to see how He is working in your life.
You might say, “But God doesn’t talk to me.”
Hey, that’s the point: He is talking to you and me. Maybe we have just been blind or deaf to His voice because of all the static in our lives.
Let me know how your homework turns out. Send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a letter. Or simply type in your comments in the box below so others can be encouraged by how the Lord has spoken to you.
Here’s to more God sightings this week.
