October ’22: Being Aware of and Hearing God Speaking to Us
By Jennifer A.
Have you ever felt down or out of sorts? I have. Moping around was the order of the day. My parents suggested we go to the mall to get a drink. We did. And it was on the trip back home that God showed up.
We were driving home, and I was in the back seat. Casually watching the other cars pass by had become somewhat of a pastime for me. Then, it happened. A green pick up truck appeared. Just an ordinary moldy-coloured, beat-up green pick-up truck driving at speed limit. But this one was special. It had something written on the back.
Telling my dad to drive faster, I peered out the window. I was straining to make out what was written.
It said, Deuteronomy 31:6.
I looked it up immediately. The Bible App does come in handy sometimes, when you don’t know the reference, I noted!
It said: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Wow. I took this passage as a direct word of encouragement from God. It made me happier. It told me that He was with me always. He has everything under control. Better yet, He had my back; He said that He would never leave me.
Sometimes, heavenly messages can be borne on the backs of moldy-green, beat-up pick-up trucks. You just have to look.
