How do you know when God is speaking to you? First, His voice will not contradict the Word of God. Second, He will usually ask you to do something that will lead you onto His path for your life. Third, it is seldom a shock to you because your thoughts align with what He will ask you to do. God simply waits for your heart and mind to cooperate.
When you position yourself to respond, you will be able to react to His voice. That has happened to me on many occasions, and it was no different this time. Last week, I saw a student who was sitting alone in the cafeteria. As an introvert, I understood her desire to be alone. Although I didn’t want to bother her, I felt compelled to sit and talk to her.
I questioned whether it was the right thing to do, and I was about to keep walking past her. However, my earring fell near her foot. It landed in such a spot that I had to sit down by her in order to pick it up. I don’t know what difference I made by taking the time to speak to her, but I believe that God positioned me to be at that place at that time.
How will you respond when you hear His voice? Please comment.
