God speaking

 

God Speaking

by Mandisa,  Album: True Beauty

Have you ever heard a love song
That set your spirit free
Have you ever watched a sunrise
And felt you could not breathe
What if it’s Him
What if it’s God speaking
Have you ever cried a tear that
You could not explain

Have you ever met a stranger
That already knew your name
What if it’s Him
What if it’s God speaking

Who knows how He’ll get a hold of us
Get our attention to prove He is enough
He’ll do and He’ll use
Whatever He wants to
To tell us I love you

Have you ever lost a loved one
Who you thought should still be here
Do you know what it feels like
To be tangled up in fear
What if He’s somehow involved
What if He’s speaking through it all

His ways are higher
His ways are better
Though sometimes strange
What could be stranger
Than God in a manger

God is speaking
I love you

Hearing from God

Yes, I’ve cried a tear I could not explain, I’ve met a stranger who knew my name, I’ve lost a loved one who I thought should still be here, and I’ve been tangled up in fear. As I was listening to the words of this beautiful song on the radio today, I paused to thank God for showing me how much He loves me. Sometimes His ways are mysterious and strange and I wonder ‘why’…but I am confident that His ways, no matter what they seem to me, are ALWAYS best. God doesn’t tell us all the ‘whys’ or even the ‘hows’ but He does ask us to trust Him. 

I’m reminded of the Sunday School lesson that I taught yesterday to the 4th-6th graders. The lesson comes from the book of Nehemiah, a famous cupbearer to King of Persia and the one who was instructed by the Lord to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Perhaps at times, this seemed like an impossible task to Nehemiah especially when a few men began rebelling against the rebuilding and threatened war. But Nehemiah remained steadfast in the strength and confidence of the Lord. He knew that with the Lord on his side, even the impossible would be possible. Because of one man’s faithfulness and trust in God, the city of Jerusalem was rebuilt.
