You are Invited

... ‘I knew that this was the word of the Lord; …  Jeremiah 32:8

Today you are invited to consider how you know that a thought or feeling is ‘the word of the Lord’ for you.  What signs reveal themselves to you when God is speaking?  How do you know what you are thinking are just ‘nice to have’ thoughts?  What happens if your mind says one thing and your heart says another?  Which one do you follow?  Which one do you consider to be the Voice of God when they differ?  And how do you know you are doing what God wants when you have made your decision and chosen your path?  If you are sure that this is God’s word to you, then praise Him; if you are not sure then ask Him to make it clear to you in some way so that you recognise His voice, even in the busy moments when life is loud.

May God bless you with an assurance of His word to you today.
