Looking for a sign

The other day I filled up my vehicle.  On the drive home I noticed that where the numbers for the mileage usually show, there were letters instead.  The letters said, “gASCAP”.  There was no doubt what the van was trying to tell me.  It was the first time I had ever seen that.  Apparently it was the first time I had ever put the gas cap back on insecurely.  When I got home, I unscrewed the gas cap and screwed in back on.  Naturally, the mileage showed back up and everything was fine.

I often wish God would be so clear.  If I am being honest, most of the time when I think I am doing what God is wanting me to do, or preaching about what I think God wants me to preach about, or writing in my blog post what I think God wants me to write, I am guessing.  I certainly believe the more I study the Bible and the more I pray and follow Him… well,  I believe they are more “educated guesses”.

But most importantly, God knows my heart.  He knows when I am trying to do His will.  He also knows when I am avoiding His will, replacing His will with my own.  He knows when I am doing things for His glory and He knows when I am doing them for my own glory.  He knows when I am trying to be obedient to Him, even when I am wrong about it.  And I believe that is good enough.  If He wanted to be any clearer, He could.

And I know You could leave writing on the wall that’s just for me.  Or send wisdom while I’m sleeping like in Solomon’s sweet dreams. ~ Nichole Nordeman
