At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).
Join me as I share with you 31 God Whispers…i.e. 31 Promises from the Word of God that sustain, strengthen and encourage me on my journey to be the Mommy and Wife God wants me to be.
His Hands…His Feet ( Day 29)
For I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
We live in a very self centered world.
“I, Me, Myself” is the lingo and I suppose a great part of this is also because we live in a world that is “on guard”!
Good intentions, generous gestures and loving acts are many a times misinterpreted, capitalized upon or manipulated and as a result people have begun to close up and focus on themselves.
Yes, even Christians.
Mahatma Gandhi, an influential leader in India’s Freedom for Independence movement said this-“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
Just imagine what could have happened if he did meet a Christian who reflected the heart of Christ, His Compassion, His Love.
Our children emulate our “walk” not our “talk”. If we want to raise loving, generous, caring men and women who can impact the lives of those around them, then the change needs to begin with us.
Let us ask God to move in our hearts,
to fill us with a compassion for those around us,
to open our eyes and hearts to be sensitive to the needs of a person we meet,
to be generous with the blessings God has given us and…
to be His Hands and Feet in this hurting world.
I pray that you will find comfort, encouragement and hope as you lean close to listen to God’s Whisper for your situation today.
A big thank you to The Nester for triggering off a desire within me to do this…
I’m excited to see what God will do through this!
