Benny woke up one morning and heard the Lord say "I want you to publish an article on Wikipedia announcing a "Billion Soul Harvest".
No reason was given. The article is up, but why? Is it some type of spiritual marker? Only God knows.
It doesn't matter. This is what we signed up for when we surrendered our lives to the Lord... to follow the unseen wind, often without reason or explanation. When Solomon said "lean not on your own understanding" he must have understood what we were in for!
The simple act of obeying God, to the best of our ability, can open the door to extraordinary, supernatural intervention. Obedience involves following His Word. It also includes following his voice.
Some people say that we need to be taught to hear His voice. That could be true, at least in part. Afterall, Samuel didn't recognize God's voice when he was spoken to as a child. But Jesus also makes it clear that "my sheep hear my voice and they know me". This is comforting.
God has a way of speaking to us in our heart of hearts. Often we will be the only ones who knows when He is speaking. He speaks into the secret places of our innermost being. We can be doing all the right things on the outside, but the priority of our lives must be to do our best to follow His inner voice. Jesus said "They who are born of the spirit, are led by the spirit". This is a mysterious act and one which is unnatural to us as human beings. That's why it is not always easy.
Let us pray "God, the next time you call, give me the grace to say yes"!
