In our furious world, we are all set to deadline some thing or somewhere. There’s little time to stop and think about much more than work and family. But my burning question arises, have you ever seen God or felt his presence? I bet you have and never realized it!
Watching the forecast, you begin to wonder….the winds swirl and rain comes at you with blunt force. Hunker down to protect yourself! Brutal weather is nothing compared to the imagination of Satan. You must realize he will take any opportunity to reign. It seems that gloomy gray and having a bad day coincides in some way. Your disposition and your attitude do seem to parallel with the oncoming shades of gray.
For hours, or maybe even days, we find our souls hibernating as the weary weather penetrates our bones. Then one afternoon the clouds subside and horizontal lines of blue break through. Your heart smiles at last! God has shed His grace over what was once a reign of terror. He calms the weather as if laying His hands upon the stormy seas. Sighing deeply, we now feel His ever-presence knowing only our Father in heaven could bring us this peace.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Relaxed in these moments of peace, we grab something refreshing and step outside. Here in His sanctuary, you see His hands raise the sad, droopy flowers from Satan’s reign. Even the birds come out to frolic at the feeder.
Oh yes, God is more present than you’ll ever know. Noticing the swirling winds, you wish you were on His pristine waters sailing out to another port. Lord, what an awesome feeling to know you are right here beside us as we tack! Especially when we need Him the most.
If you feel God is trying to tell you something, consider He is preparing you for a greater in the future. Embrace it…look closely at it and don’t wish it away. Pray for His divine wisdom in your life.
Signs of God’s Presence In Your Life
Is God talking and you’re not listening or are you not familiar with His messages in your life? Here are some eye-opening signs that God is speaking and you must pay attention:
God will use people to send you messages. Interested in pursuing something but you’re uncertain? If ordained by God, natural events will begin to occur that gives you the extra push to run with it. Particular people will come to you with encouraging words or information that you need to move into the right direction. People are not placed in your life by accident.
Ever seen a message in the sky by the clouds? Or by birds or butterflies? Allow me to share a personal experience with you. My editor was recently sitting on the back porch and a WILD bird flew down to within two feet of her and began chirping. Thinking they wanted some food, she threw bread onto the ground for them but they didn’t come down to eat it. When she went back to her computer, one of my writings was waiting for her and it turned out to be one of my most popular pieces. Not only that, this piece mentioned birds in it!
Financially broke but money appears “out of nowhere”? Not a stroke of luck….coincidences are from God!
Have you ever been in or saw a death-defying accident but walked out alive? Was there someone mysteriously there that helped but later disappeared when an ambulance arrived on the scene? God’s angels, my friends.
Ever had an uncomfortable feeling or a feeling like you shouldn’t be doing something? God will never lead us to do something that is wrong. There is a sign to find in the turmoil.
Dreams will be very vivid when they are a message from God.
