Did you ever watch that show “V” (meaning “Visitors”) that aired during NBC’s 2009 season? It was cancelled without my permission after one year. I must admit, my husband and I were quite engrossed with this “aliens taking over the earth” series. One of the main characters was “Anna” who was the most stunning rendition of an alien I’ve ever seen. She was the one in charge and had very sinister plans for those little ones on the earth. Nevertheless, she was so beautiful and spoke with such eloquence that the whole world was awestruck by her. She would speak to the “little earthlings” with her beautiful face and hypnotic brown eyes across a huge screen on the bottom of the mother ship and sweetly say, “We are of peace, ALWAYS…” Blink. Blink. When she would do this, I always wanted to shake my television and say, “She’s lying people, she just wants to eat your brain!”
I hope when I tell you, “God speaks, ALWAYS…”, you don’t have this incredible urge to shake your computer screens and scream “She’s lying people, she just wants to eat your brain!”
The truth is, God does speak, always… To prove it, I am taking this opportunity to share just a couple of instances from my heart giving testimony of how God has unmistakably spoken to me personally and how I came to notice. Starting no sooner than yesterday….
December 28, 2012, all day long the Lord had me pondering in my heart some related themes. Later in the day, I searched for a certain book on my kindle when something unrelated to my search caught my eye, Reflections of His Image by Nancy Missler. Something in me insisted I download that $10 book even though I know very little about this author except the fact that she’s married to one of my favorite bible expositors; Chuck Missler. As I anticipated, based on the title, one of the first verses she quoted in her book was 2 Corinthians 3:18; “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
Gulp. I felt something stab internally. I was avoiding something and I knew it. I thought about that blog post that I wrote a few weeks ago, “Heart in the Hands of Christ.” Was I living out that post fully, in all areas of my life? I went back and read that post as though I had not authored it. I felt that gut stabbing feeling again.
Later on, I spoke with a friend that randomly made, what seemed to me, a strange suggestion, striking a little bit of a nerve. It hinted to me spiritually, of what God was already telling me over and over, “…being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
As I was tucking the boys into bed later, one of my children randomly
