I'm hosting a guest writer today who I have been following. With her permission, this is a post that Denise wrote over at Free To Be Me. She's a lady that loves God.
This particular one is about God's provision of signs for His people. We are not talking about signs that replace prayer, reading His word, etc. We are not talking about signs that replace communion with God on a daily basis. Rather as we commune, we are to be aware of Him everywhere as we keep our minds and hearts directed toward Him at all times.
Looking For A Sign
God works through signs, visible demonstrations that He is present. Some signs are small, barely noticeable. Some are large, almost overwhelming. All are amazing wonders of His love and care. He guides each one of us each day, but we have to watch to see where He is leading.
The Israelites received the signs of a cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night. Another sign, was that they always had enough food and water. Over and over again, God made it known that He was protecting them, and leading them to the Promised Land. Still, they complained and grumbled that they were going to die in the desert.
When we stop looking for the signs that God shows us every day, we lose our way. We become lost and confused. We wander about aimlessly, without any direction, or purpose. The Lord cannot take us very far, if we are not looking for His divine signs. They are always in front of us, but we have to keep our hearts, minds, and eyes open so we notice them.
