All Scripture is given by inspiration of God…
If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles (utterances) of God.
A week ago, the Lord asked a dear sister to share this thought with me. She obeyed, hastily writing it out, folding it, and passed it on. When I unfolded that simple piece of paper and read those precious words of encouragement, I wept for joy, because the Lord SPOKE to me.
You can tell, this little piece of paper has been well-loved in the past week.
The Lord could speak directly to us, but He chooses to use others to build up their faith and love.
One day the Lord told me to call a younger sister, explain my current trial, and ask for prayer. I obeyed. I called. She listened. She prayed for me. At the end of the conversation she confided in her morning prayer she had asked the Lord to teach her to be more faithful in prayer. I was the second person to call her that morning with a serious request. We both rejoiced and worshiped. He hears, He speaks, He loves.
Next time you heard that still, small Voice telling you to pick up the phone, send an email, leave a verse on Facebook, or send a card,
Don’t doubt that Voice you hear. You will cause worship, I know.
For the past month of living through a trial concerning an Innocent Man, the Lord has spoken to me again and again through His people.
The timing is always impeccable, is always divine. It also reminds me to not be so centered on my trials, that I don’t hear Him instructing me to pick up my phone or my pen.
