God Whispers


     


Today I want to thank God for the times when God talks to us.   There have been many times in my life when God has given wisdom, insight, direction when I need it most.  Sometimes have lost "things", usually the keys.  I have always had a hard time keeping track of those things.  I am sure they have legs. I search every nook and cranny and come up empty. In despair, I call out to God and as I continue searching the planet for what was lost, I have this "whispering voice" saying, "Did you look in the (insert place) ".  I'll go back and look and sure enough right there they are, right where I left them.  Other times, God has given me wisdom concerning people.  Sometimes it's just a negative feeling about someone that I cannot "put aside".  I've learned to listen to those feelings because I serve a God who discerns the heart.  At times, I have asked God to show me who to trust.  He has answered by bringing situations to light showing a person's true character.  The lightbulb goes on and God tells me what I need to know.  Often God has whispered to my heart, "Don't do that" or Do this."  The amazing thing is that when I'm obedient to that voice, I end up more content and often in a better situation than I could have ever planned on my own.  Many are the situations and "bullets I've managed to dodge"  because I have God whispering in my ear "incoming."  Thank God that he knows everything and he "gives wisdom to all men generously without reproach."  Thank God that He whispers in our ear what we need to know so that we can be innocent as doves yet as shrewd as a snake.  What a stress reliever to know that we don't have to rip our hair out looking for things, or be schooled in psychology, we only have to listen to the one who has all wisdom whisper in our ear.
