If so, I am here to encourage you today; to show you that God IS indeed speaking to us today.
God said in Genesis 1:14-15:
14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights--the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night--and the stars.
You may have read in the news recently about a comet named Lovejoy which had a close encounter with the sun and was anticipated to be burned up as a result. You can imagine that anything that has a really close encounter with the sun would be destroyed, right? Well, I believe God spoke to the world through that comet. Please read this well documented piece by my friend, Art at the New Wineskins blog.
Is that amazing? To me, this is a direct message from God saying that it is time for His followers to give Him the headship in our lives and we are to follow Him implicitly; even into things that are unpalatable to us and possibly very trying. The pouring out of the latter day rain in the form of His holy spirit is imminent. It is vital that we lay down our love for this world and lay down our lives in service, praise and worship of Him.
May God richly bless YOU with an outpouring of His spirit at this time and may 2012 be one in which God is glorified in all of our lives.
