HAVE YOU EVER ASKED GOD TO SHOW YOU A SIGN?
Have you ever asked God to show you a sign? I love Gideon. Since I live in the South now, I can say, “Bless his heart!” He just wanted to make sure he had proof that God was going to show up in a big way before he embarked upon the journey. Don’t we all do that at one time or another?
I remember asking God for a sign that He would be with us in a mighty, mighty way - “like a red bird or something”, shortly after finding out Jacob was deaf. And do you know a bright red cardinal landed right in front of me, looked straight at me, cocked his head, chirped three times and then flew away?! I about fell over! Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things unseen, but I am so glad that God understands our frailties. He reaches us where we are and then beckons us to come up higher in our faith, knowing full well He is the source of our energy and endurance.
