Have you ever experienced that still, small voice that prompted you to do something, but yet it really made no sense at all to you? Well, I just recently experienced that, and I want to share my story with you. God is looking for your obedience. That’s what He wants from you. The rest is just icing on the cake.
A few weeks ago, I felt that inner prompting of The Holy Spirit to send a very specific and detailed message to a particular lady that He brought to mind. I haven’t spoken to this lady in several years, but I just couldn’t get away from what I felt led to do. I figured that I would rather look crazy and be obedient than just to ignore what I was picking up on. This was one time that I knew I had to do what I had to do. So I proceeded and messaged this lady.
That’s when God really got my attention. This lady messaged me back to let me know that she was going through a difficult situation just that morning and was needing God to intervene. Wow! God is awesome and always right on time. What is the chances of God bringing this particular lady to mind when I haven’t spoken to her in several years and me sending a message to her on just the morning that she was needing to see God move in her life.
Not only did this encourage the lady, but it encouraged me to continue to listen and never dismiss that still, small voice of The Holy Spirit. We have no idea how God will work through us when we are open to follow Him however He leads us. It doesn’t matter if you understand and have every detail from God. What does matter is your availability and openness to listen, respond, and obey.
Let me make one thing clear. I haven’t always been obedient. There have been many times in my life that I have been too busy, too tired, or anything else too much to do what God asked me to do. I haven’t always gotten it right. There is great freedom in being honest, and that I am doing. Our transparency helps others to show that we are real just like you are. So I’m a real person just like you that doesn’t always do the right thing.
Now a few weeks out from this lady’s situation, I am pleased to say that God showed her grace and worked in her favor. Did God have the ability to do this without asking me to send her the message? Absolutely. My message didn’t change anything with God’s outcome in how He chose to take care of it. What it did do though was to give this lady some hope to know that He hadn’t forgotten about her and that He cared about what she was going through.
So the next time you feel that inner nudge to do something for someone, don’t ignore it. It could be a matter of life and death for that person as we never know what people are going through. God wants to use you to help others. It starts with something very simple. Just listening. That’s it! Just listen, and watch God use you greater than you could ever imagine possible.
