“I don’t really ever actually HEAR God,” she said. “I just look around at what’s going on with my family and try to make a choice. But when doors close or conflict arises, I question whether that is a test of my resilience or a sign that I’m going to the wrong direction. What do you do? Do you ‘hear’ God?”
Is the stuff that comes up along the way a sign from God that you’re headed in the wrong direction or roadblocks thrown up by the devil to stop you from pursuing what God has for you?
I believe there are forces far greater than us at work in the world. The colloquially termed good versus evil. And it’s not always clear to us why things are happening the way they are happening. There is so much we can’t explain around us. The good stuff as well as the bad. There are giant theological books written on the topic.
But in response to her simple question of, “Do you hear God,” my response was, “not in some big booming voice.” I seek God. I try to discern if my decisions are being led in the direction He desires. I fail. Everyday.
