A Personal Message from God

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me." - John 10:27 
Have you ever felt like the words of Scripture or the messages you hear in church were meant for someone else? Maybe you've thought, "That's a great message for him or her, but it doesn't really apply to me." It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that way, but let me remind you of something important: God's messages are not generic. They're tailor-made for you.

When you open your Bible or sit in a church service, God is speaking directly to you. He knows you intimately, and He knows exactly what you need to hear. That verse you stumbled upon during your morning devotion or that sermon that seemed to address your struggles head-on—they're not coincidences. They're divine appointments orchestrated by a loving God who wants to communicate with you personally.
But here's the thing: hearing God's message is just the beginning. It's what you do with that message that matters most. Are you merely listening, or are you ready to act? God doesn't want His words to go in one ear and out the other; He wants them to take root in your heart and transform your life.

So, the next time you read a verse that resonates with you or hear a sermon that hits close to home, don't brush it off as something meant for someone else. Embrace it as a personal message from your Heavenly Father, who knows you better than anyone else ever could. And then, take a step of faith and obedience. Apply that message to your life, let it shape your thoughts and actions, and watch as God works wonders in and through you.
Remember, God's messages are never accidental, and they're certainly never meant for someone else. They're meant for you—precisely for you. So, listen attentively, receive His word with an open heart, and let it lead you into a deeper relationship with Him. 
God is speaking. Are you listening?
