Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
My husband, Danny, and I share a special connection. We have an uncanny way of reading one another's thoughts before a word is ever spoken.
Now, granted, this doesn't happen all the time. But, it occurs often enough for me not to view it as simply coincidence.
I'll be writing away on the computer when a thought about Danny pops into my head, unprovoked. The next thing I know, my phone is ringing. It's he!
Or, we'll be working at home and he suddenly gets the urge for an afternoon cup of coffee. Before he moves to make it, I'm already preparing it.
Whenever we experience one of these moments, it never fails to bring a smile to my face.
I marvel at this intangible gift.
And, it makes me think about how God hears us. Knows what we are going to say before we say it. Knows our needs before we ask.
Yet, He still wants us to converse with Him.
To tell Him our thoughts. Our feelings. Our hopes. Our fears.
Just as Danny and I enjoy our daily conversations. Speaking aloud. Not just assuming we can always read the other's mind.
So, we talk to God. Out loud.
Then . . .
And, listen in silence to what He has to say.
Thankfully celebrating this special connection with Him.
Do you share a telepathic connection with someone you love?
Will you pray with me?
We are so grateful, Father, that you know our needs before we ask. But, we know how much You like hearing from us. Let not a day go by when we don't have a conversation with You. Amen.
