When sent to find a bride for Isaac, Abraham's servant asked God for a sign. In Genesis 24:14 it reads "May it be that when I say to a young woman, Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,' and she says 'Drink, and I will water your camels too' let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac"
God knows we as humans question things. He knows our hearts, He knows our needs. He knows how to speak to us. To REALLY speak to us. Now, Abraham's servant didn't ask God to do something... to produce something. He asked "for a sign". When we sincerely seek God's counsel and direction, He knows what needs to be done to assure us in our walk. He knows our heart! He knows the beginning and the end and how we'll come to 'hear' and believe in His works.
He is AWESOME like that.
As I pray over things in my lift, I often feel like Abraham... I wanna shout sometimes "COME ON... I DON'T GET IT!" and Jesus knows this. Recently when a prayer was answered, it was SO CLEAR it was God there wasn't any denying it. Here is the ironic thing ~ the prayer which was answered, was a prayer I sincerely had, but the outcome completely not what I had in my own lil' head! However, when God said THIS IS IT. I say YES LORD and here we go.
Sometimes we must be open to see such things like that. We may have a desire or dream for which we feel a gifting and we focus on something or a direction for which we feel we are meant to go ~ and Jesus says "Ummm right turn, not that way this way" and we must follow. Because when we do... OH THANK YOU JESUS for the blessings! I can look over my life and see God's finger prints all over my journey as He turned the pages of the map of my life. And His foot prints too!! As He walked with me through it all. Was it always pretty and easy with a fabulous view, ummm NO! But was it worth it? Absolutely! God is so good ALL THE TIME!
This morning as I pray for God to continue to speak to our hearts, I ask that He specifically touch us and show us " a sign" today that HE IS NEAR. If we have a struggle, issue, conflict, a joy to celebrate a praise to share, let us FEEL HIM NEAR and know, He is ALWAYS there. Holy Spirit you are welcome here, open our eyes, our hearts and our ears and allow all our senses to feel you ~ Thank you Jesus.
This morning I would like to invite you to share your prayers. If you have a prayer you would like me to share with you, please inbox me - or if you are comfortable sharing with the page, post it. There is power in prayer and we know when two or more are gathered, He is there. Let me gift you with the partnering in prayer with you. Blessings friend and may His Holy Spirit overwhelm you today [every day]!!
