How God can speak to us through other people.
Posted in , Aug 17, 2017
I’ve been thinking a lot about how people can be miracles to other people.
For instance, sometimes when I’m upset about something (like really, really upset), I happen to run into a woman named Esther who works in the same building as the Guideposts office. Whenever I see her, she dishes out wisdom that applies directly to whatever particular problem I’m facing. Sometimes unknowingly.
Like last Friday. I was annoyed about something. It had kept me up all night. I talked to God about it, but wasn’t sure how to handle the situation. Then I ran into Esther at work. I hadn’t seen her in a couple of weeks. She asked how my summer was going. We chatted a bit. And then, all of a sudden, she switched topics and gave me advice on exactly what was bothering me. I couldn’t believe it. I hadn’t even told her I was upset!
“Esther, every time I see you, you know just what to say,” I told her, dumbfounded. She just laughed, like it was no big deal.
But it was to me. I always expect God’s answers to come to me through a loud voice or some huge message written on a billboard. More often, though, God speaks to me through other people. Like Esther, who always seems to pop up out of the blue with a message that’s too “on the money” to ignore.
MIRACLES BIG AND SMALL
I guess you never really know what impact you might have on someone with just your words or how God is using you to change another person’s life. Esther is living, breathing proof to me that we can all be miracles to one another.
