What did God tell you—yesterday? He said or showed you something. Since things are more apparent in hindsight, it will serve you well to set aside time each day to think about what He probably told you the day before; His words are like priceless diamonds; you don’t want to lose any of them.
Did God already tell you the answer you are waiting to hear?
The Holy Spirit speaks in all kinds of ways; do you have the faith to discern His unexpected networks of communication? Everything He says might not strike you as skyrocketing information, but be not deceived; those are valuable gems in God’s overall plan. How can a human brain rank the relevance of what God said? Don’t let any of His words slide by as irrelevant.
. . . Speak; for thy servant heareth (1 Samuel 3:10b).
We hear people say, perhaps even ourselves, “something told me . . .” We should stop giving “something” God’s glory when the Holy Spirit was the One doing the talking and leading. I’m pretty sure Mary didn’t say “something,” told her that she would birth the Son of God. (See Luke 1:26-35.)
After repeatedly reflecting on our yesterdays, we’ll become aware that the Holy Spirit communicates with us all the time. Soon, our ears will develop the habit of listening intently for God’s precious diamonds in the present moment—not the day after.
