Impressions from God (April 8, 2013)

‘These instructions [impressions] to do something out of the ordinary will never violate God’s moral laws or any teachings of Scripture; instead, they will encourage you to apply those laws or teachings in some specific way for the good of others or the Kingdom of God.” {p. 42, “The 10 Second Rule“}

God speaks in a variety of ways.  They may not always be the ways we are expecting.  It is important that we pay attention.  Some things are easy to hear–don’t lie, don’t steal, do be kind, sensitive to the needs and feelings of others.  Some won’t be so easy–such as where to go to college, who to marry or what job to take.  These are the times when we must weigh our “impressions” against the truth of Scripture.  God will never ask us to do anything that goes against His Word.

[Read Luke 7:1-35]

Luke 7:35 But wisdom is shown to be right by the lives of those who follow it.

If we are following God and being obedient when He calls, our lives will produce fruit that others will see.  If we are listening to the impressions we receive from God and doing what He wants us to do, the results will show in our lives.  the more we obey, the easier it becomes to hear God speaking to us.

Father God,
Hearing Your voice isn’t always easy.  The busyness and noise of the day often overrides it; however, if we stay in tune to You throughout the day, we will hear You.  Make my heart sensitive to Your still small voice.  Amen.
