Do you ever feel compelled to give someone a call, send an email or send off an encouraging note or greeting card? I would guess most of us feel those gentle nudges on a regular basis but in our fast-paced lives, often procrastinate or simply ignore the prompting.
I want to be sensitive to God's prompting. "During the night Paul had a vision of a man in Macedonia standing and begging him, 'Come over to Macedonia and help us (Acts 16:9 NIV)." Apostle Paul's response to the plea for help was prompt.
He immediately prepared for the trip to Macedonia. I recently read a moving devotional and passed it along to a Spirit filled young man, feeling it would speak to his heart. I was humbled and rewarded to learn it came at a time when he needed the encouragement it provided.
What if I had not been prompt in following Gods' prompting? I may not learn how many chances I have missed to be a blessing to others until I kneel at Jesus feet. Until then, I hope the Lord continues to prompt me with His cues.
