Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
Just over a year ago, I was at a writers' retreat, trying to figure out what to do next. I had big aspirations to write fiction, and had started five or six manuscripts, but never felt good about them. God used the ladies at that retreat to confirm not only what God had gifted me to do, but what He had called me to.
Confirmation in our Christian lives is HUGE! Sometimes, I think it would be so much easier if God would just whisper in my ear what I'm supposed to be doing. And then I realize that He is . . . He's just using other Christians to say the words.
Yesterday I taught a Bible study on Ephesians 4. A couple of ideas stuck out for me: Believers are brought together to be the body of the church, to help each other grow in spiritual maturity, and to work in unity with one another. Then I had dinner with an old friend and a new friend last night. And God used them in a mighty way to speak to me.
God's confirmation is all around . . . when we listen.
How have you heard God's confirmation for what you're doing?
