Uh-huh! He does! You betcha!
HiSKidZ in our KidZChurch are finishing up a series of lessons entitled, “God Speaks” from the folks at High Voltage Kids Ministry. Personally, I’ve been loving these lessons, and from what I’m hearing the kids are, too.
One of the highlights of a great series for me is when it becomes more than just a series or a great teaching for kids, but when God really speaks to me through it.
So, of course, it’s been super fun to see (or hear) how often and, all the ways, God has been speaking to me lately. I’m not completely sure whether He’s talking more or I’m listening more, but either way, it’s been so much fun!! Even when it’s not been so much fun–discipline isn’t always pleasant at the time, BUT. . . . in the end it’s soooo good, and it reminds me of how much I am loved.
It’s kind of funny, because with the exception of a few really dry times in my spiritual life, it always seemed to me like God has made His presence very real in my life. But this week, it’s like we went on a trip together and have just gotten in some extra great, extra good quality time.
Throughout the last couple of weeks we have taught that God speaks through people, circumstances, thoughts and the Word to correct us and direct us and comfort and encourage us. I think that in just this week alone, He has revealed Himself in all of those ways.
I’ve been encouraged, inspired, instructed, directed, corrected and cared for by the King of Kings, Father God, the Savior of the world, and I love, absolutely love, that it’s so personal.
What about you? Has God been speaking to you lately? If so, I hope it’s something you can share with someone so that He can speak to them through you, or share here, I’d love to hear how God has been speaking to you lately.
If you haven’t heard him lately, don’t give up, friend. Continue to seek Him, wait for Him, surrender to Him and praise Him until you hear Him speak again. As we say in early childhood, “Put on your listening ears!” God is here. God is real, and . . .
