How God Speaks

I was in a recent church small group that asked the question: “how do you hear God?” I suggested that I have heard God in my subconscience and, also, while reading the Word… where Scripture would seem to be answering a life situation at the right time when I needed it.

But, today, I experienced an example of how God speaks in a “coincidence.”

I had just recorded a demo of a new worship song that I have been working on called “Flood of Grace,” and I was listening to it in the car on my way to work.

The third verse goes like this:

Blow the trumpet in Zion
So all the earth hears
And gather your people
And make your voice clear
That despite our fall
The Spirit is for all


Right at the moment that I was listening to myself sing “Blow the Trumpet in Zion,” as I was sitting at a red light, a truck passed in front of me which had ZION in large letters on its side. Zion Plumbing and Rooter is a business in Mission Hills (where I was passing through). It is a business that I had never seen or heard of until today.

The “coincidence” was too, um, coincidental. 🙂 It made me smile, as I felt confident that God was pleased with the song.

Have you had a “Godincidence?” Tell me about it!

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
