Signs from God
July 15, 2021
How many times I have wished that God would send me a burning bush! We face so many decisions, big and small, in life. Should I change jobs? Move closer to an ailing parent? Adopt a child? It seems it would make life much easier if God would speak to me like He did Moses- through a giant burning bush. The answer to my prayers and questions would be so obvious! I have yet to see a burning bush, but I do think God often speaks to me and to all of us, through the advice of Christians around me, through Scripture, and even through nature, God’s creation. While most of us won’t hear God in a burning bush, we can respond to God the same way Moses responds. When God calls to him, Moses says, “Here I am.” He’s scared and nervous I’m sure, but he responds to God with faithfulness and so can we.
QUESTIONS FOR THE FIELD
- Is there a particular area of your life or decision where you need to discern God’s will?
- How is God speaking to you? How have you heard God speaking to you before?
FAMILY FIELD TALK
- How have you heard God speaking to you?
Loving and gracious God, I lift my prayers to you today. In those places where I am discerning your will, speak to me. Help me hear you even when the answer comes in less obvious ways and help me be faithful to your call. Amen.
