Morning Prayer, Friday, April 20, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: DON'T IGNORE THE TUGGING
Father God, thank You for the times when You have tugged at my heart or gave me that gut feeling to tell me to wait or slow down. Amen.
"God speaks to us in so many different ways. Don't ever lose sight of the small ways." Eric had been waiting for the past five years for the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder. He was beginning to think it would never happened. Day in and day out, month in and month out for about a year now, he had been praying for a big break. He actually knew how the Israelites felt waiting on God to move. This job would offer him the opportunity to be a mover and a shaker with an elite crowd. As much as he wanted to say yes to the offer the company had made him, Eric could not dismiss the nagging feeling in his gut to turn it down. Surely God would not give him a blessing and just like that snatch it right from under him. His friends told him he would be a fool to turn an offer like that down. His mother suggested that he be prayerful about his decision. His pastor told him a tugging in his gut meant God was saying hold up. Eric decided to take a few days to think about what he would do. If the job was really his, they would still want him on Monday. Not twenty-four hours later, he sat stunned at the news that the President of the company along with several VP's had been arrested. All he knew was it had something to do with the federal government. This couldn't be happening he thought but then it hit him. His pastor was right, that tugging in his gut had been God telling him to wait. How often do we ignore that tugging in our gut when we are making decisions? God speaks to us in a myriad of ways. Sometimes, like a child does a parent when he or she is trying to get their attention, He tugs at us. Don't ignore it. It could be the answer to your prayers.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
