Welcome Back! If you missed the intro to this little series of lessons from my doves, visit here.
The first Dove Note God sent through my doves was this: “I enjoy conversation!”
TRUTH: DOVES ARE SOCIAL!
Sometimes I will awaken in the middle of the night and hear my doves chattering to one another. Their low, trilling voices are quiet and persistent. In the afternoon when I go out to feed, they tend to be quiet until they hear my voice…and then conversation is on! They return to quiet as I go into the cage and listen as I chatter to them. But if I will stand quietly, the conversation resumes. Can you see the parallels in our relationship with God?
TRUTH: LOVE DEMANDS EXPRESSION!
God chose to create humanity because of His great love. He wasn’t lonely; He didn’t need people. He loved and in that love, God created humanity. Living in that love is His desire for every one of us. Like the nearly constant chatter of my doves, God is speaking to us all the time…calling out, speaking sweet truths and inviting us to draw near to Him.
Conversation with God is a joy that we can enter anytime. His voice, like my doves, is quiet and persistent. Have you spent time calling out to Him today? Have you spent time listening to Him today? God wants us to share our hearts–and share His.
