And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, whoi have been called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28
But He doesn’t speak to me in some audible voice. He never has and I don’t believe He ever will. In the instances I’ve had, it’s like He comes into my head and talks in my own personal voice. It’s crazy and hard to explain.
The first time this happened was when I was saved in 2014. After going through the deepest depression of my life, He came to me and said “I’ve always been here for you and I always will be.” AMAZING.
In 2015, I was bitter. I went to a new church just to try it out and during worship I felt Him come to me again. I was thinking about a guy who I’d been dating that was not good for me, and then all of the sudden I felt Him say “LET IT BE.”
I was slightly freaked out, but pushed it out of my mind for the moment.
Then I started thinking about my dad because there was a worship song about God being our Father. My earthly father and I had a serious blow out and I was still upset about it. But then wouldn’t ya know, He came to me again and it felt like the biggest command ever: “YOU HAVE TO FIX THE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR FATHER.” #ohcrap
This wasn’t just my conscience y’all. This was some serious Jesus talk.
I can’t even begin to explain to you either why when I’m doing my devotional that I write things down sometimes that I know are not my words. Like “be brave” and “faith stands strong through every season.”
The only thing I do know though is that all of these words have one central message: I do all things for your good (Romans 8:28) even when it hurts for the moment.
What is God trying to tell YOU today and are you listening?
P.S. One was fixed, one was let be, and I became more brave than I ever thought possible. 🙂
