God Nudges

Do you know when God is nudging you?

Earlier this week, I felt God reminding me of Psalm 46:10: “Cease striving and know that I am God” (NASB). After a few fun but busy weeks, I needed to slow down and just sit in his presence.

In the past, God has nudged me toward greater love and compassion, to generosity, to global awareness, to reconciliation, to personal disciplines and changes in behavior, toward particular decisions. He has nudged people I know to adopt, to become foster parents, to give sacrificially, to fast, to share the gospel in another country, to move out of a harmful relationship, to start observing a Sabbath, to give up a particular idol.

What has God been nudging you about lately? Are you listening and responding?
