231 – Do you notice when God is trying to get your attention?

God talks to us in lots of ways. But how often do we notice?

Take a minute to think of all the ways God tries to get your attention. 

Sometimes it might be because you're doing something you shouldn't. Sometimes it's because you're not doing something you should.

And sometimes it's because your doing exactly what God wants you to do and He's confirming that you're right where you need to be.

In this week's episode, I talk about how God got the attention of several Bible characters. And it wasn't always rainbows and butterflies. And how God used others to get their attention

  • Moses and the burning bush, but more importantly it's how God talked to him
  • Jonah: God had to get his attention lots of times (does that ever happen to you?)
  • The Israelites often didn't pay attention to how God tried to get their attention  through the prophets. Guess what happened to them!
  • John the Baptist got people's attention and pointed to Jesus
  • Jesus really got people's attention and pointed them back to God, not just because of all the people he healed, but especially because of the crucifixion and resurrection

How does all this apply to you and me?

God is always trying to get your attention. Why? Because He loves you and He wants the very best for you.

Please take some time to look back on your life and ponder all the ways God has spoken to you, protected you, directed you, rebuked you, provided for you, healed you.

Every time these things happen, even if you don’t realize God is there doing it, God is calling out to you, saying, “I see you. Do you see Me? Look for Me everywhere in your life. Trust Me. Love Me. Lean on Me. Ask Me for what you need. I am here for you. Pay attention to Me and all the love I have for you."

How is God getting your attention today? Then... what will you do next?
