"'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'"
Can you hear it? Have you felt the gentle voice of the Spirit? Sometimes a thought occurs to me that is foreign to my normal way of thinking, and I’ll dismiss it. But if I take a moment to recall my recent prayer requests, I often discover that the strange thought is an answer to prayer. I may have a flash of insight into a problem. Or perhaps suddenly recalling a Bible verse clarifies a troubling situation for me.
Have you ever listened to a Sunday sermon and marveled at how it seemed to be spoken just for you? Has a friend ever made a comment that hits you like a jolt of electricity, illuminating the error of your thinking?
All of these may be ways the Lord is communicating to us. His Spirit is always at work – in and around us. Jesus said, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working” (John 5:17). Stay familiar with His Word; may it be unforgotten in your home. Then, listen carefully to how His Word and the situations of your day are orchestrated to lead you through.
DEAR LORD, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SURPRISING ANSWERS TO PRAYER YOU HAVE PROVIDED THIS WEEK.
