Often times we feel an urge to say something, but something else keeps us from uttering it. What if that urge came from God and someone needed that message?
God speaks to us in many different ways. Those of us who communicate with God regularly are generally pretty clear on when God is speaking to us as well as what God is saying and what we are to do with that information. Those of us who are not as in tuned may need a little more confirmation/validation to know that the urging we feel is God and exactly what we are to do once we get the message. The litmus test that I use to distinguish between messages/urges is something I learned from my God mother…”Is it kind, is it necessary and is it true”.
Getting the message is only half of the process. The other piece to the puzzle is taking heed to it. Often times taking heed means saying something to someone and/or a group of people that they need to hear in that moment to help them along their journey. Knowing that we are all connected, God urges us to say things that are for the greater good of those we are connected to…not just ourselves. This is why it is important to do what “thus sayeth the Lord”. When we allow other forces to keep us from being obedient, we not only block our own blessings, but we block the blessings of those that the message/action was meant for.
