I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful fall colors and weather!
God has blessed me with several dear friends who hear Holy Spirit and then move on His promptings. Some are so led by Holy Spirit that it’s a normal occurance in their lives. They are so sensitive that they move in what Holy Spirit is directing them to do, naturally, just by being themselves and who God created them to be.
One recent Sunday, I was driving home from church and as I was passing Macaroni Grill, I had a fleeting thought that Bill and I never went there. I was thinking how I would like to go. The very next Sunday, I decided to wear a pants suit to church – one that my friends gave me for my birthday. As I was waiting for service to begin, lo and behold, these friends came in! They go to another church but decided to come to mine after going to their early service.
After service, they asked me to go to dinner with them. Where did they choose to go? You guessed it – Macaroni Grill! Isn’t God amazing?! He “heard” the unspoken desire of my heart and granted that desire.
I thank God for the dear friends He has put in my life. Some have a word in season, some give their time to help me do things or fix things around the house that I can’t do. (When I try to do these things, I usually wind up having what I call, “Ev’s Escapades.”) All are special and are used by the Lord in various ways.
God “hears” our hearts. When we desire in our hearts, no matter how little or fleeting that desire is, God loves to do it for us. He shows us in so many ways how much He loves us. Even though we aren’t “formally” asking for something, God “hears” our heart! It may be so fleeting or one we consider so samll we don’t even put a voice to it. Yet nothing – not one desire – goes unnoticed by our Lord.
I wonder how many of these “fleeting desires” we forget about. God does not forget. I wonder how many times God gives us these little cries of our hearts and we overlook or forget that He answered. If we look back, I think we’ll find many of them. I may forget, or miss the connection that He has done this – yet He is faithful and blesses anyway.
Thank you Lord for all the times I don’t even realize what You’ve done and I didn’t thank You. It may have been the smallest desire, yet time and time again, God hears when we ask “with our heart.”
