Disturbed By The Lord

Everyone was in bed reflecting on the day’s activities before going to sleep. There was a gentle “rapping” that seemed to persist. First, they thought someone was at the door. But no one was there. Puzzled and frightened, they began to search from room to room.

Finally, they found the source. There was a picture of Jesus with His hands outstretched calling people to “Come unto me!” As a fan circulated the air in the room, it caused the picture to move and make the “knocking” sound.

God uses every possible activity to get our attention to hear and heed His voice. Rarely does a day go by that He is does not make Himself obvious to each of us. But He does so in His own way. While we may look for a burning bush, water coming from a rock or a sea parting, He often speaks in a “still, small voice.”

Isaiah said, “Your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, This is the way, walk in it.” God is doing everything He can to get our attention. Has He already given us the answers that we need but refuse to accept?

Too often we put the problem on God when it is our problem. We cannot expect to hear His voice or find His path if we are unavailable or unaware. “Surely you will find me when You seek me with all your heart.”

Prayer: Lord Jesus, lead us and guide us, instruct us and protect us, provide for us and nourish us as we walk in Your path and follow Your Word. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Scripture: Isaiah 30:21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." (NIV)
