How and Where God Speaks 10-26-16

_ 012915 BIBLE

(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. He woke us up this morning and started us on our way.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come to you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to tell You that we give you our hearts. We give you our souls. We live for you alone. May our hearts beat and our every thought be yours. Please direct our steps and fill us with wisdom through Your Holy Spirit and Your Word. I pray that our lives will be pleasing in Your sight. Thank You for loving us and for having mercy on us. Help us to be ministers to those around us, sharing your Word, our testimonies of Your works in our lives, and Your love. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Let’s eat.

How and Where God Speaks

God speaks in many different ways to us, His children. He spoke through a burning bush to Moses. He spoke through a donkey to Balaam. He spoke through prophets to His kings. He speaks through other believers. He speaks directly to us through the Holy Spirit. And He speaks even through circumstances.

The hand of the Lord was upon me there, and He said to me, “Get up and go out to the plain, and there I will speak to you.” Ezekiel 3:22

When God wants to speak a very important word directly to us without interruption from the noise of our busy lives, he will take us “into the plain.” The plain is a place with no distractions and no other people. It is a place of silence. It can be a place of great need as it often fails to have the normal provisions we are accustomed to. It can be a place we go to voluntarily to seek His face, or we can be moved there without choice by His supernatural ability. More often than not, it is the latter method that brings us into the plain. In these times, it often means a separation from our normal activities such as jobs or families.

The plain can also be a place where we discover once again that God’s hand has been on us all the time. When we are so busy with life, we sometimes forget that God’s hand is still there, gently leading our path. When our lives get so busy that we are not listening or responding to His gentle touch, He must take more aggressive measures to get our attention. as a result, the plain is one of those appointed times of one-on-one communication with our heavenly Father. No distractions, no people, no beautiful surroundings to capture our thoughts. It is a barren place designed to allow us to seek and hear clearly. When He speaks, we need to be able to listen. We hear much better in the plain.

Do you need to hear God’s voice today?

Is your life so messed up and distracted that you can’t even hear His voice?

Each day God calls us to our own mini-plain in order to speak to us and for us to hear. If we neglect this time of open communication, we may be invited to His plain in order to hear without distraction. Pray that you might make time to hear.

Quote of the Day

When I walk by the wayside, He is along with me. When I enter into company amid all my forgetfulness of Him, He never forgets me. In the silent watches of the night, when my eyelids are closed and my spirit has sunk into unconsciousness, the observant eye of Him who never slumbers is upon me.
