One of the great things about working at Yachad Distribution is that most every morning we meet together for 15–20 minutes and sing, pray, and encourage each other.
This morning, Shammah was telling us about a quote he’d picked up somewhere, but he couldn’t remember where he’d heard it. His son, Noah, piped up and told him it was from a certain movie, which prompted a lot of teasing. His reply to that, though, was awesome, and worth thinking about and understanding.
He pointed out that we’ve got to be careful not to restrict how God speaks to us. God’s speaking to us all the time, sending messages to us through all sorts of things, and we’ve got to be open to hearing those things, or we’re missing the Word of God.
The Truth can shine through whatever God chooses to let it shine through, and it is what it is. It’s the smallness of our ideas of God which will keep us from hearing. He doesn’t need us to protect him from being tainted by speaking through a medium which we deem is unsuitable, or instruct him on how he’s supposed to do his work. He’s God.
