“Something told me to…”
“I just had this weird feeling that I was supposed to…”
“Call it, woman’s intuition, I just knew that…”
Those are all phrases we’ve heard people use when trying to describe a feeling that they were SUPPOSED to do something. But didn’t.
That Still Small Voice…
I think the notion they are trying to capture is the still small voice mentioned in I Kings 19:11-13 . And it is God’s Spirit within in us, trying to tell us something for our benefit. The things is sometimes we ignore it.
That very thing happened to me last week! The worst part is that I’m studying, Hearing God, right now.
And I may have missed out on an opportunity, because I failed to listen. But I learned a valuable lesson: hear God and just obey. It is way better than sacrifice.
Has ignoring the still small voice ever come back to bite you?
