Have you ever had a random thought about someone … a thought for no reason … and then that very person got in touch with you? Or have you ever been thinking about doing something only to have someone show up to help you with whatever task you were thinking about? It is almost like someone is watching you and setting things up to provide exactly what you were thinking about.
Or have you gone to bed thinking about some problem or lost item only to dream a solution or location and discover in the morning that the lost item was in that location? Or the solution you dreamed about worked?
These are moments in time when God steps in and offers us some help, just because He loves us. So here are some of my suggestions on how to make this happen more often:
1. Write down every day things that you would like to see happen, or want. Keep the list handy and read it often during the day. Somehow in God’s unique timing, people or things or solutions will appear with very little effort on your part. Keep track of these ‘blessings for no reason’ and see how many times they happen.
2. As you are going to sleep, think about that issue or problem you have been working or thinking about. Pray and tell God what you are thinking, and then THANK him for providing the solution. Remember to thank him, that seals the deal. Don’t worry it if it doesn’t happen the first time, it may take some training on your part to show God that you are giving him full credit for solutions. If you wake with no response, thank God during the day for helping you with wisdom from his very throne room, just like His word says … ‘I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.’ Psalm 32:8
3. Make a list of 20 things you would like to own or experience. Be sure they all line up with the word of God and then watch how many of them really do come to pass. It’s like making a list of the attributes you want in a spouse before you are married … it puts your brain and spirit on notice to watch for opportunities to provide what you want.
God is always looking for ways to get messages, directions and blessings to us. Try some of these suggestions and see just how much God will use your imagination and your sleep time to bring about answers to all of the questions you might have.
It’s a good life, live it with JOY!
