I have actually heard stories of people seeing the face of Jesus on potato chips, cookies and pizza. Often times they describe it as a “sign” from God for a direction they need to take. Could God lead this way- sure He is the creator of the universe. But, does God really need Dominos in order to lead people? I think not!!!
Let me ask you- Have you ever wondered- “How can I know God is leading me?” Maybe you have had this thought- “I feel like God wants me to take this step of faith… “or is it really God or the anchovy pizza I ate last night?” There are so many times in the Bible where we read that “God led someone” or “God spoke to someone” and you ask- “Does God still speak to people?” Do you remember the story of Moses? Moses is 80 years old and herding sheep for his father-in-law and God speaks to him through a burning bush. Sometimes I think my decisions would be so much easier if God would give me a “burning bush” experience regularly. Here is an interesting fact- God only spoke through a bush once. Knowing God’s direction for our life can get really complicated because we all have so many choices.
In our series Game Plan we have been narrowing our focus every week to this idea- “How do I know it is God leading me or God’s direction?” This Sunday we are going to dig into scripture and discover how we can be sure of God’s leading. Wouldn’t you love to know it was God and not what you ate last night?
Are you facing a challenging decision? Considering marriage? Maybe a business move? If you answered yes to any of those questions or plan to live for another year (because they will come up) plan to be here this Sunday. This message may be the message that helps you understand clearly how you can know God’s voice. By the way- I bet you have a friend who needs to hear this message – please bring them with you Sunday!
