You Talking to Me? – Part 60

You may ask, “You talking to me?”  But always remember, that doesn’t stop Father.

For 59 days, I have written to you on the topic of “You talking to me?”  Many things can evoke that question in your heart and soul, but that does not stop Father from moving forward, using you, working with and through you, and bringing about supernatural results through your life and ministry.  All in all, my writings point to one inescapable truth.  We need to know the Word of God.  We desperately need to know the Word of God.  When we know the Word of God, regardless of how astounding or beyond our capabilities something seems to rest, if God said it, that settles it.  So, when we know the Word of God, even when something so astounding that it provokes in us a “You talking to me?” moment, we can make a faith response that in no way hinders, threatens, or delays the work of the Lord.

It has happened to many of God’s greatest men and women.  Noah before rain was even known, Abraham at Moriah, Elijah at Carmel, Moses at the Red Sea, Isaiah in the temple, Daniel at prayer, the Hebrew Children at the fiery furnace, Peter before walking on water, Peter at the gate Beautiful with the lame man, Paul on the road to Damascus, and many more.  They all had their “You talking to me?” moments, and they all emerged victorious. 

You talking to me?” moments have occurred in my life and ministry, and on more than one occasions.  They have taken place in the life of every minister I know, especially in those lives and ministries that have pursued hard after the things of God. 

You talking to me?” moments have occurred in the lives of every great man of God about whom I have ever read.  John G. Lake, Alexander Dowie, Jack Coe, William Branham, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Billy Graham, F.F. Bosworth, Charles Parham, Kenneth Copeland, and more.  Whether it was a move to expand ministry beyond their imagination, or where to go to do the work of the Lord, or how that ministry was to be performed, or who it was the Lord wanted to use to complete a work, and many other matters.  “You talking to me?” moments have happened, and continue to occur as one grows in Christ, obeys the Word, and fulfills the work of the Lord.

You talking to me?” moments do not have to be stopping points.  While it may be a questioning point, always remember that when you’re talking to the Lord, you’re speaking directly with the answer.  If the “You talking to me?” moment that arises in your life comes from a place of willingness to comply, Father is ready to establish you and confirm your ability to move forward in pleasing Him.  That is always a good place to be.  And, yes, I’m talking to you.
