God loves to surprise us. He wants us to grasp His purpose and message no matter how He speaks to us. The Bible encourages us to trust Him to direct us: “Your ears will hear a word behind you, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right or to the left” (Isa. 30:21). He is faithful, and will direct us one step at a time. Let’s make a decision today to expect to hear His voice without preconceived ideas as to how He will speak to us. Oswald Chambers once said, “Jesus rarely comes where we expect Him; He appears where we least expect Him…The only way a servant can remain true to God is to be ready for the Lord’s surprise visits.
