So Gideon said to Him, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, then show me a sign that it is You who speak with me.” Judges 6:7
A lot of times people tell me that they want to hear from God yet He never speaks to them.
The truth is that God speaks to those who are open to God speaking to them. God whispers to us each day. If you are not open to the whispers, the synchronicities, you will miss them.
God is very specific when He speaks to you. I find it so fascinating that God knows that I like puzzles. So He gives me pieces of knowledge and lets me put them together to see what he is telling me. That, however, is just one of the ways He speaks with me.
Right after you read this; if you are aware, God will give you little signs, little glimpses of His divine providence. You will see things in different ways then you have seen them before, if you are open to see things differently.
A dear friend of mine died a few months ago. I was broken-hearted by her unexpected death. She was younger then I am, so I assumed I would die before her. She was too young to die. She had sent me an instant message a week before and she sounded fine. She woke up one morning, said she was having a hard time breathing, and she died instantly. It really hit me. It made me realize that we never know when someone will die and so we have to really live fully each day. I was not able to go to her services. I was upset about it and cried my eyes out the day before. The morning of the day of her service I got out of bed and went into the kitchen to start coffee. I opened my window and in broad open daylight I saw an owl looking at me. The owl just sat on the fence and looked. I felt a peace come over me, I knew that it was a messenger letting me know my friend was okay, with God and would understand my reason for not going to her service. I was able to let go a bit after seeing the owl. Owls symbolize wisdom. Both my friend and I teach wisdom learned in the crucible of fire. The school of hard-knocks was a teacher for her and for me. That’s why we bonded well as friends. I do not believe in coincidences. God spoke to me in a way I was totally open to.
God uses birds often to speak to us. We simply need to read the times in the Word birds were used by God to see their significance.
One time during a hard time in my life I had to go to the bank to clear up something I was embarrassed by. My soon to be ex-husband, at the time, had taken money out of my account that was not his to take I was in a hard position. I had not idea how I was going to pay my bills. I didn’t know what to say to the woman who I assumed was so classy nothing like that would ever have happened to her. I figured there would be no way she would understand and believe my story. I sat in the lobby of the bank, waiting for her.
They had music playing that was piped through the intercom. I was praying so hard for a miracle with the woman when all of a sudden the song, “Tiny Dancer,” which just happened to be my favorite song for all time, played. I had never heard that kind of music at the bank. I immediately calmed down knowing that God used that to let me know, “I hear you and I am with you.” Sure enough the woman was totally understanding of my situation and was able to get my money back from my ex-husbands account and in to my own.
Start watching for signs. When you pray for a sign, God will give you one. God is with us always. We have ministering angels with us always. You do not have to depend on your own ability, just be open to God performing miracles for you. Say, right now, “Thank you God for working my situation out for me. I know you are with me and all will work out fine! Then watch for signs and wonders. God is with you, just be open to hearing from Him.
In His Unconditional Love,
