If We Listen

Somedays, it seems you have no idea where you’re going. All you know is you’re moving in a different direction with no destination in mind. Then, by the end of the day, you realize you were where you were supposed to be. You did what you did without knowing the significance of it.

Later, once you reflect on the events, you realize something special is happening. Because you are obedient, God controls your speech, senses, and steps. He has a way of doing that for us without us recognizing his intervention. We were doing what we thought was right for the moment. Our incredible Savior has you by the hand in those moments, directing your life.

When Jesus guides unplanned steps, miracles take place. Maybe the phenomenon doesn’t seem like a miracle to us, but to those watching, hearing, or being encouraged, it’s the hand of God for their moment. Just what they needed for comfort, reassurance, encouragement, or the necessity of life was given to you to give to someone else.

Our wonderful Lord knows the need of every heart. He also knows when to step in and supply the demand of our hearts. Our Savior already knows who his messenger can be.

If we listen and comply with God’s leading, we can be his messenger of hope and happiness for someone. What it takes on our part is a willing heart and a yearning to be used by God. It is then that we find out why and where we are going.
