Because of our reading of the Old Testament, many people have the idea that if God shows up, it will be with smoke, fire, and a loud voice. There will be bright lights and loud noises that shake us to our very core.
I would like to suggest that these are not the only way that God works. When he shows up in our lives, it is often in much smaller, simple ways.
God speaks to us through a Christian friend sharing a story from their life. He nudges us in our souls when we hear that emotional story at Church. He reveals himself to us through a kind gesture done in the name of Jesus. Our mindset is changed through a single piece of scripture.
The question is not, “Is God working in my life?” The question is, “Am I looking for all the little ways God is working in my life?”
