Prayer for a discerning mind

When God planned on destroying Sodom and Gomorrah, he gave Lot and his family the opportunity to save themselves before the big destruction. But what did his sons-in-law do? They took the message as a joke and guess what?……….. their only window of salvation was lost!

We feel down and lost in this world sometimes. We believe God might be delaying that big change we need in our life or ignoring our numerous prayer requests. ……….But remember that even though we were sinners, God still sent his only son to die for our salvation. So what other big sign are we looking for?

God might be speaking to us indirectly through the words or actions of others. The question is how do we know which ones to take to heart or the ones to ignore?

Do we expect God to speak to us only through a burning Bush or through visions only? Then we would forever be misled and lose out on the BIG things in life.

The Bible talks of the massive sin in Gomorrah so I doubt that Lot’s sons-in-laws were any different. But God still gave them a second chance  due to their relation to Lot , unfortunately even with God’s grace of salvation and window of opportunity, they missed out.

God might be speaking to us indirectly through the words or actions of others. The question is how do we know which ones to take to heart or the ones to ignore?

My prayer for us all is that God grants us a discerning mind to be able to know which voice to listen to.  Lord help us understand that you are able to work your wonders even through ordinary human beings like ourselves. AMEN!
