GOD PAUSE Today --- like any other day --- you will “bump” into people. Situations will happen in which you come into contact with someone that on the surface seems accidental or just a coincidence. But it is not. God is directing your steps as you move your feet. Inside you is the presence and the words of God. Like the prophet Isaiah, you need to say “The LORD has equipped for this job, with skilled speech, a smooth tongue for instruction. I can find the words that comfort and soothe the downtrodden, tired, and despairing. And I know when to use them.” (Isaiah 50:4), Dear Papa, guide my and my friend's steps throughout today. Help us to be wise and ready to speak your words of life to someone. In Jesus' mighty name. Amen and amen.
