The Most High God wants to reach each of us with words to guide our steps. “With your ears you will hear a word from behind you: ‘This is the way; stay on it, whether you go to the right or the left’” (Isaiah 30:21).
We perceive His communication in some way. Frequently, He speaks to us through scripture. Have we ever been reading the Bible when a verse jumped at us? Unbelievably, the words in front of us, were answering our inner struggle. This was not an accident, but a divinely orchestrated plan. His words were energized (Hebrews 4:12) to accomplish a purpose (Isaiah 55:11).
I recall when the Almighty spoke through scripture to reassure a good friend. She was discouraged, but wouldn’t tell me why. So, I asked Yeshua (Jesus) to give me a scripture which could restore her. Before I finished praying, He said John 16:33.
Now, I had read John many times. But, I couldn’t remember what the verse said. Without taking time to look it up, I called her with the grand announcement that God wanted her to read John 16:33.
His verse selection seemed sacred somehow, which is why I didn’t read it first. I did not want to speak for Him, nor substitute another verse I liked better. The last thing I wanted to do was get between her and her Creator. So, I simply delivered the message.
She said she would look it up. Later, she was joyful. That verse was exactly what she needed at the time, and it answered her issue.
God does this for you and me through scripture. You've got mail.
