Sensitive to Father

Did you ever wonder why you think of someone? Why they just come to mind, seemingly out-of-the-blue, as it were.

Those of us who know Father, and are acquainted with His nature and ways, easily should realize that it is not some mere coincidence, but that it is a divine working in our heart and mind.

When we’re immature in Father’s ways we easily can dismiss such apparently random thoughts without any further consideration. However, when we grow to know Him and His methods better from the Scriptures, we know that when someone is brought to our heart and mind it is, indeed, for a reason.

Paul used his remembrance of the saints as an occasion to pray for them. Prayer was not some religious ritual or rite to Paul – it was simply his communion to Father.

I am thanking my God at every remembrance of you. Always, in every petition of mine for you all, making the petition with joy (Philippians 1:3-4, CLT).

We should learn to be sensitive, using the occasion of the thoughts of others on our mind as an opportunity to mention them to Father.

If they continue to be on your thoughts – drop them a note, or give them a call. We all need each other greatly, and we learn to respond to Father’s use of our hearts and minds.
