That Nagging Feeling

So Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of His own accord, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. John 5:19 ESV

Their eyes welled up with tears as I handed them the envelope. Without saying anything, they knew what was inside because they had been silently praying for help. All the while they were trying to keep up an outward appearance that everything was fine. I just had this nagging feeling that I was supposed to give them some money, though by all appearances they appeared to have more than I did. God saw what I did not see.

Jesus rose early in the morning and prayed, then listened and was alert to what the Holy Spirit was saying. It was not a cold, dead, religious word but a living, fresh, relevant word each day. No one walked on water, until Jesus did. No one fed thousands from one lunch basket, until Jesus did. He was our example and worked with God daily. He always did what He saw the Father doing.

When you have that nagging feeling that you are supposed to do something, even though it appears to make no sense to you, do it. God often seeks those that will listen to be the answer to someone's secret prayer. Following the gentle prompting of the Holy Spirit will make your life come alive.

Prayer: Father, please refill me with your Holy Spirit and bring divine encounters in my life. I believe that You are the living God and have a plan for me. Teach me to recognize when You are speaking, in the name of Jesus.
