God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.

— Job 37:5

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

How does God help us know his will? Clearly, God has given us the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit to help us understand those Scriptures. What about more subtle and less defined ways? Most of us have had a “cluster of divine coincidences” — what I call “Godincedences.” Many of us have had several events in close proximity to prayer asking for the Spirit’s help and guidance. A friend calls or writes at just the right time; we read an article or hear a sermon that has a comment directed at just the area of our concern or confusion; several songs in worship convict us in the area we are seeking the Lord‘s guidance; or, we simply feel a pull on our conscience that helps us discern right from wrong in a difficult situation. God really means it when he says that if we pray for wisdom without doubting, he will give it to us (James 1:5-6) and that if we truly seek him, we will find him (Matthew Matthew 7:7-8). His voice does thunder and sometimes whispers in marvelous ways!

My Prayer…

Holy God, please help me discern your will about several important matters in my life. I don’t want to make decisions based on my limited human wisdom. Please lead me by your Spirit in the direction you want me to follow and empower me to go there confidently. Thank you for caring about my life enough to show me your way more clearly — whether in thundering or whispering. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
