God Knows

We went out this afternoon to get our free tacos and go to Lifeway Store. Chris ran into Lifeway while the rest of us stayed in the van. While we were sitting there, Elijah noticed a man getting into the car parked next to us. "What is dat man's name?" "I don't know, Eli. Don't stare at him," I replied. Jacob piped up from the back seat, "God knows his name; why don't you ask Him?" Elijah takes a deep breath, "Dod?" Silence. Then Eli says, "Make Dod say 'What'!" I jump in - "Eli, we don't play God." More silence; Elijah is thinking. "Will Dod say 'What' in my head?" "Ummm...maybe, Eli." So - do you hear God when He speaks to you? Are you even listening for His voice? It may not be an audible voice, but a silent nudge in your spirit or conscience. Make sure you listen for Him, because He does and will speak to you. "At that moment, the Lord passed by. A great and mighty wind was tearing at the mountains and was shattering cliffs before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was a Voice, a soft whisper (1 Kings 19:11-12)."
