“Papa, I can hear God’s voice in the wind...”
That statement came from my 6 year old grandson. We were on a walk crossing the grassy hills leading down to the beach on the Washington coast. The path was not clear, and we had to avoid watery patches, so we were zig-zagging along. It was really windy when my grandson said, “Papa I can hear God’s voice in the wind… and he says he will help us find our way.” What wonderful thoughts innocently offered by a child!
First, that we can hear God’s voice in his creation. Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” God can be seen, and understood through the wonder and beauty of His creation, whether through the rushing wind, the rolling waves or the rustling grasses.
Second, that God will help us find our way. For my grandson, wandering through the tall grass and small sand dunes on a windy day was causing some level of distress. Somehow in his grasp of the situation, he was not so confident in his papa’s sense of direction, but knew that God somehow had us in his sight. It is a comforting thought to know this. Luke 12:6-7 reminds us that God indeed looks after us. “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
As you walk through this day, listen for God’s voice and be confident that he knows where you are right now and can show you the way! We just have to listen and be willing to follow where He leads!
