Yesterday I received a message from a dear friend who is also a believer in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and she trusts God to supply her needs and guide her through this journey called life, as I do.
The message was: “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10).
She said that God spoke to her in a dream and gave her that message, and in that dream, she saw me. So, it was put on her heart to tell me a couple of weeks ago when she saw me, but strangely, she was only able to see me in passing that day. The timing was off.
But this day, we were both in the right place and at the right time. I believe it was all in God’s timing. So, I received the message when I was supposed to.
She proceeded to explain to me why she was compelled to share it with me. Then, it was clear to me that this was God’s way of giving me answers to questions I had asked in prayer.
My prayer has been and still is, “What will you have me to do today Lord?” Please make everything clear to me beyond a shadow of a doubt, so that I can know and submit to your will and serve your purpose for my life.”
This message couldn’t have come at a more perfect time because I had been praying for God to give me direction concerning specific areas of my life.
I believe that if I had gotten the message two weeks ago, I might not have been able to apply it to my particular situation.
You know, it’s kinda funny though, how you’ll get an answer from God, but then another question follows in your mind. I know the rest will come and then all the pieces of his message will come together. At times, I think that I get distracted by the everyday stuff and don’t always understand his messages. At least not as quickly as I would like to.
Do you ever feel that way? I am still learning patience because all things come in God’s time.
I am taking that message and applying it where I believe it belongs in my life, while still seeking further confirmation along the way as I do my part in my situation.
This unexpected and greatly appreciated message signifies to me that God is hearing my prayers and is using other Christians to deliver his message to those who seek it.
I pray that God is continually working in your life and blessing you as well…
