Some say that God is a silent Being. Some believe that they can hear Him loud and clear. SO… What’s the deal?
I’ve been struggling with my anxiety and abandonment issues the last couple weeks. I’ll be honest in saying that I haven’t prayed when I should have. It’s not that I didn’t want to pray but more so that I forgot to pray, and when I did remember to pray, I didn’t know what I wanted to say.
I reached out to former pastor of mine after seeing his sermon of the week prior. A portion of it was about feeling loved. I told him… “I’m in the middle of your sermon while at work and balling my eyes out. I’ve been struggling a lot more lately with not feeling love from others especially from those you expect love from. I really needed this! I really really needed this. Thank you for sharing your sermon even though you don’t normally.”
You see, he doesn’t usually share his messages and just lets the church Facebook page share it. He responded with… “You are welcome Ashton. I just spent time praying for you that you would know just how much you are loved. Have a great week.” Not long after his response, I was reading my devotionals for the last couple days to get caught up. And I found these…
Some might think this would be a coincidence, but when God is involved, I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe He was answering the prayer of my former pastor and the prayers that were deep in my heart that I couldn’t bring to the surface.Hearing God loud and clear takes practice and experience. As you dive deeper into your relationship with Him, you will start to recognize His voice.
