God speaks to us in many ways. If we are close enough to Him we can hear Him in the wind, in the baby’s cry, in the noise of a busy street, in the doctor’s office and in the school yard.
So many ways does he speak that we cannot possibly list all of them. He loves us so much that he wants to keep telling us in every possible way, all of the time.
When we are out and about in the world His voices are many and varied, but when we are shut in a hospital or a nursing home His voice can fade and grow dim.
The Enemy loves nursing homes and hospitals. What better place to strike? When resistance is down, and doubts arise; when we are home sick and lonely; when our family is too busy, when we are treated like a nonentity, the enemy is waiting to say, “See, I told you so. Who cares? Where is your God who says he will never leave or forsake you?”
We know the answer. That God is in you.
Take that God to a nursing home or hospital, and set Him free.
