Hello: God Is Calling!

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Zechariah 4:8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
Several times in Zechariah we hear this priest / prophet says something like, “the word of the LORD came unto me.” WOW. Can you even imagine? God, either by voice or by angel’s voice coming and speaking directly to you? How grand of a day that would be. Yet, it may also be somewhat scary. You might begin to wonder what would be so important that God would want to talk with me personally. What is He going to ask me to do? God speaking directly to you would be rather miraculous and a bit overwhelming.
We too often get the idea that when God speaks to people it is only to scold or punish. That He only comes when things are going wrong. Therefore, we begin to think it to be a frightening experience when He speaks. However, did you ever think of this? In the Old Testament while they had very little of the scripture put together, God often chose to communicate through angels and prophets.
Today, just as in Zechariah’s time, God is speaking directly to you. You read that right, God is speaking right to you. He does it through the pages of His Holy Word. We now have 66 books written in the binding of the Holy Bible, which contain God breathed Words written for you and me. The majority of it is not about scolding or punishing. Most of the Bible shares just how much God loves you and wants to help you.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
So, as you go through your day today you might just think, as did the Zechariah, “moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying…” Well, what did God speak with you about today through the pages of His Word? He is still speaking. Are we still listening?
