Not For Sale

I have been waiting for the longest time to hear God speaking to me. Am sure most people would testify that they have been in this position before. More often than not, we expect to hear a voice or maybe have a physical experience with God. This may never happen, or it might to some people. Only God knows.
Guess what? you don’t have to wait to hear a voice or break out in goose bumps because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. God speaks to us every day, in the smallest actions, feelings and most importantly His word. The questions are :are you listening?, will you obey?
Three days ago I was going to church for a fellowship. Instead of getting to my usual bus stop,I stopped to take a short cut because the traffic was too much. There is a beggar who sits at the bridge that I used to cross over that day. I have used that route a few times before and I have never thought to give him anything. That day I felt God saying “give him something’’.Trust me I fought with that voice for a solid 3 minutes because I didn’t have change. All the while this man kept waving his hand asking me for a few coins. I ended up giving him an amount that is greater than a few coins. Believe it or not, the next morning I found double the amount I gave him in the pockets of a dress I haven’t worn in a long time[I have no idea why I chose to wear it that day].
This may all seem like a series of coincidences to us, but there are no coincidences in the spirit. God plans out everything for the good of those who obey and believe in Him. I don’t know what relationship that man has with God but He had already decided that he would send him his food that day through me. If that man was aware that God had already commanded me to give him some money, he wouldn’t have bothered begging from me. Sometimes we should just rest and know that God has it covered.
We want God to talk to us, therefore we should always be in a position to obey Him,no matter how hard it sounds.
