Confirmation (Thirty Days to Greater Fruitfulness, Day 17)

This blog has been temporarily overtaken by my Thirty Days To Greater Fruitfulness Challenge.  You can find out more by checking out the Introduction.

I love it when God speaks about something.  I love it even more when God is committed enough to an issue that He speaks to you about it multiple times.  While God doesn’t always speak twice on a matter He is serious about, His repitition can be a clue that we are on the right track (2 Corinthians 13:1).

This morning, after repenting, I woke with a dream.  In the dream, Couple B, whom I mentioned buying a book for in a previous post, had their home overtaken by people I consider national leaders in the house church movement in this country.  In the dream I was worried that Couple B  would be horrified and angry about the intrusion.  However, as things progressed, it became clearer that these national house church leaders were not a burden like I had initially thought.

So as you can imagine, having this dream, I felt like I should probably get back on the ball and have a conversation with Couple B.  You know, the one I decided I was going to have about two weeks ago. The dream seemed to me to be indicating that taking a plunge into an organic church might be messy, in the end it may be rewarding. The crazy part was that when I got home that evening, the book I had ordered for them about the exact same topic had come in the mail.  Coincidence? Only if there is no such thing as God.

These are the sort of things that are beginning to happen more and more.  God speaking, a little hear, a little there, and then confirming what He has already said in subtle but important ways.  Part of it is I’m watching for it more.  But a large part of the change is I’m certainly more connected.

How about you? How is God speaking to you and confirming what He has said in this time? Leave us a note in the comment section.

Join us on the “Thirty Days to Greater Fruitfulness” experiment.  For the rest of September we are spending 30 minutes in silent prayer listening to Jesus and then acting on what He asks us to do.  Then we blog about the changes that are occurring in our lives through the marriage of listening and obedience.  It’s not too late.  If you’re just checking out that experiment feel free to jump in.  And if you want more information, you can check it out here.
