I am often amazed by the LORD. I will sense His presence with me and stop in amazement that He loves me and wants to be with me. He will do something unexpected and delightful (like that parking place!) and I am amazed that He cares for even the smallest things in my life.
Then there are the confirmations – perhaps they surprise and amaze me the most.
I had spent the last few days reviewing the resumes and listening to sermons of candidates applying for my position. I had picked my top three and sent them on to the committee chairman. Maybe I was thinking a bit about what the new year might hold for me.
Then in the middle of the night while I was in one of those times when I was not sure if I was dreaming or awake, I heard the wonderful verse from Jeremiah 29:11: “’For I know the plans I have for you’—this is the Lord’s declaration—’plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’” [NKJV]
When I opened my computer the next morning, I checked one of my daily verses and just gazed at it. It was Jeremiah 29:11. God confirmed to my heart what He spoke to me in the middle of the night.
God loves us. He speaks to us often. He wants us to hear Him! He will confirm His word to us to assure us we are hearing correctly! Bless His Great Name!
