TOPIC – GOD STILL SPEAKS (EPISODE 7)
BIBLE VERSE: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” John 10:27-28 KJV
God spoke in the Old and New Testament times. Does He still speak again any longer? Oh yes, He does. He speaks to those who choose to listen when he does. The reason why many believe He doesn’t speak like before is because He is not used to yelling or shouting. If God will have to yell or shout at anybody, then disaster has set in. Go and ask Nebuchadnezzar (who ate grass like goats for seven years) or King Herod (whose body was eaten by worms) May that not be your portion in Jesus name. Amen.
In this episode of the novel; IF WITCHES WERE HORSES, two classical examples of responses to God’s voice is displayed. Morakinyo excelled as he braced all odds to do the will of God for his life, despite the attractive and juicy offers/alternatives around him. On the other hand; Gbayike, despite receiving convictions from God about Morakinyo being His will for her as husband; rejected him, based on ephemeral and mundane considerations.
In each of the two cases, God only spoke using His word, situations and circumstances to communicate with the persons concerned. They both had choices to accept or reject. While Morakinyo accepted, Gbayike rejected. The consequences of their decisions were to affect later situations as the story in the novel progressed.
Deciding to allow God have a final say in your life is as critical as knowing when He speaks. Learn to hear and recognize His voce. When God speaks once, may we hear twice.
