When God speaks

Posted on

We’ve had many conversations with the kids about how God speaks to us. They love Jesus but are still a little too young to completely grasp the concept of God “speaking”.

Caleb will say, “But I don’t hear anything Mom.”

I’ll tell him that God speaks to our heart and he’ll give me the Mom you are crazy look.

But I know I’m not crazy. Well at least about God speaking. Because He does and it’s such an amazing, overwhelming experience when He clearly speaks.

I had that experience Wednesday night.

One of my co-workers is struggling through some things and Wednesday night I sent her a text that said, “Praying Philippians 4:6-7 for you…”

A little bit later Wednesday night I was talking to my sister on the phone and we were talking about some of the struggles we were going through. She had some things going on yesterday that were causing some fear and anxiety. At the last minute of our phone call I told her about the verse I shared with my co-worker. I asked her to read it and that hopefully it could give her peace through her situation too.

She said, “Oh my gosh, hang on. That verse is in my journal.”

Side note:

A few weeks ago we were talking about the struggle of life and faith and she told me that she had committed to reading her bible and journaling about certain verses that spoke to her. She encouraged me to do the same thing and so we’ve been trying to hold each other accountable through that.

End side note:

So she grabs her journal and she says, “Yep, it’s on the very first page. Philippians 4:6-7 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Wow. Thank you Jesus. I’m pretty God was wanting me to clearly see and hear the promise from that scripture too!

For the Word of God is alive and active. Hebrews 4:12

I’m finding myself at a loss for words And the funny thing is it’s okay The last thing I need is to be heard But to hear what You would say

Word of God speak Would You pour down like rain Washing my eyes to see Your majesty

To be still and know That You’re in this place Please let me stay and rest In Your holiness Word of God speak

I’m finding myself in the midst of You Beyond the music, beyond the noise All that I need is to be with You And in the quiet hear Your voice

Word of God speak Would You pour down like rain Washing my eyes to see Your majesty

To be still and know That You’re in this place Please let me stay and rest In Your holiness Word of God speak

Word of God speak Would You pour down like rain Washing my eyes to see Your majesty

To be still and know That You’re in this place Please let me stay and rest In Your holiness Word of God speak

I’m finding myself at a loss for words And the funny thing is it’s okay
