We all can hear the Lord =)
The following is just a cool testimonial to how easy and simple it is to listen to the Lord...
My husband I were doing the Jesus Calling Devotional for Kids last night and we got to talking about Moses and the Israelites. It was a really nice discussion and that was that, or so I thought, lol.
Tonight we did the devotional and before we began my 5 yr old was telling my husband to read 3 and handed him the bible. My husband looked down and saw Numbers 3 and asked my 5 yr old if he wanted him to read Numbers 3, my lil' guy said "no, Heboos 3". So we turned to Hebrews and my husband looked and asked "All of it?" and my lil' guy said "yes". So my husband obliged our lil' one and started reading chapter 3 of Hebrews.
The cool part is that it was on exactly what we were discussing last night!!! I absolutely LOVE how the Lord is involved with everything as we seek Him and teach our children to seek Him. I don't care at all for the desert places and wilderness He leads me through in order to teach me to trust Him, but He's been faithful to bring me through most of it, and I know He's bringing me through all of it, I just haven't walked that far yet.
I just can't get over how simple it would have been to ignore my 5 yr old's request and have totally missed out on this blessing! What a sweet way to let my 5 yr old know that he hears God's voice too; that still and beautiful quiet voice that leads us into His will for our lives =)
