(33)“But he who listens to me shall live securely And will be at ease from the dread of evil.”
Proverbs 1:33 (NASB)
One of the most common words in the Bible is the shortest word . . . “go.” There are over 1000 references to that word in varying forms throughout the Bible. So when God says to be prepared to “move out” or “go” He means it!
A nice easy example: One day I distinctly heard the Lord tell me to go buy Rosalie some flowers. Now, that was expensive, and I was not certain I had heard correctly. But it sounded like a fun thing to do, so I called the floral shop beside her bookstore and bought a bouquet. On my lunch hour, I stopped in to see if she liked them, and she told me that it was the anniversary of her opening the store! This gift of those flowers meant a great deal to her. I was clueless, but God was not. He is aware of every small detail of your life.
Another friend of mine was specifically told to go forward in church and tell a woman who was crying that she was praying for her. She gave her name and told her the message. After the service, she learned that this woman’s child had recently died . . . and the daughter’s name was the same as hers. The gentleness of God’s heart touched the woman’s brokenness and gave her a tiny moment of peace. She saw it as a message from God that He was thinking of her.
Be confident of the Lord in your heart, of His Voice in your spirit. Trust His love to bring joy to others through you. As the world gets darker and more difficult for all, God’s love and voice in you and through you will be a lifeline and will change the lives of many. As you trust and believe, more “crazy spiritual things” will happen to you – and that still small, voice of the Holy Spirit will lead you onward. So move out with confidence!
