The other day I was out on a walk by my house. The scenery is always beautiful because next to a paved pathway we have a creek flowing behind our home. God always brings the usual creatures out for me to admire: squirrels scampering and birds chirping their sweet songs. On most walks I get to pet a dog or two and I love that!
This walk was different though because I know that the Lord was journeying with me. My relationship with my Abba father has grown over the past few years so we spend a lot more time together during the day.
In fact, the other day my sweet husband said to me, “I can see the Lord is first in your life honey. You are such an inspiration to me!” I imagine many of your husbands have noticed this in your life as well. When this happens, it feels so right because God is in his rightful place and the Father is looking down and smiling.
Strolling down the path, I said to my Father, “If I am really hearing you, feeling you and sensing your presence with me, please show me a sign.” All of a sudden, three squirrels started at the bottom of three different trees and scampered up to the same spot and started chattering. The squirrels stopped at the same height and turned and looked at me while they were communicating.
Most of the time when I see squirrels, there are only two speaking to each other and they aren’t looking at me! This time I realized God’s Holy presence was there with me on that bridge. The trio of squirrels, connecting with me, wagging their precious tales, answered a question that I had been wondering about. Since I’ve drawn closer to the Lord, I feel His Presence in the most unusual way as tiny electrical currents start at my feet and run thru my entire body. During my moment with the squirrels, the currents were flowing!
Oh how marvelous is this new added presence of Him to my life! The Father had answered me completely.
I have fellowship with Him because I walk in His ways.
Sisters, you can have a similar experience if you spend time with our Father, walking with Him, communicating while you are driving around town on your many errands or speaking with Him while you are in your homes. He is waiting on you to be in HIS presence. The more time you spend with Him the closer He will be.
James 4:8 says, Come near to God and he will come near to you. Will you ask your Father to take a walk with you today?
LOVE YOU SISTERS IN CHRIST! Lisa Mick
