Funny the way it is.

I’m not talking about the Dave Matthews song either.  (Although, I’ll admit, I do like that song!)  I’m talking about how funny (if you want to call it that) the way God speaks to us.  I’ve found, especially over the past 6-9 months that when I’ve prayed about an issue, that a bible verse will come to the surface and I will see it again and again.

Here’s an example.  Last week I was struggling with why, when you are a believer and you are walking (an almost) straight line, that you still have “issues”.  After many days/nights of pondering (yes, I ponder 🙂 ) and praying on the issue, I happened across a message from my pastor.  It said, “Just because you’re following God doesn’t mean trouble doesn’t follow you!”.  I was like – whoa!  Okay.  It happened to be a post on Facebook, so I opened up the comments and saw that his wife posted this bible verse:  “The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in this world” 1John 4:4. Whoa..again.  Interesting I thought.

The next day I was doing some research on (a site I love, btw) and guess what verse came up?  1John 4:4.  Hmmmm.

THEN…a day or so later this post showed up in my newsfeed from 88.7 The Bridge:

Coincidence?  I think not!  It is funny, the way it is.  If you just pay attention to the messages around you.  God will speak to you and tell you just what you need to hear.  You just have to be listening!
