The God Nudge……
Will you take action on the voice that’s been prompting you?
Have you ever felt a nudge to do something completely out of the blue? This may be a small voice that tells you to contact someone, help someone, start something, stand up for something, or take some kind of action that you were not expecting? This could be referred to as a “God nudge,” God speaking to you through the Holy Spirit that is prompting you to do something. The bad thing is that many times we don’t listen to this nudge and make some kind of excuse on why we are “too busy” to take that action, make that phone call, start that movement, or move in the direction of the invitation. This nudge could be a cue, bump, invite, or prompting to do something. Many times we feel like we are “unqualified” to take the specific action we are getting prompted to do. This is just the voice of doubt or the enemy trying to convince you that you are inferior in some way. Nothing happens until somebody moves and nobody moves until they hear the nudge.
Not long ago while in a completely relaxed state in Florida I felt that nudge. It said, “You need to put together a men’s event for men to renew their faith with other men in a day just for them.” I also understood this, “You are to contact Peter Demos, a good friend and man of faith that you have worked with in the past and ask him to help you.” For the most part when God speaks I try and listen but more importantly take action. I picked up the phone and called Peter, whom I hadn’t talked to in a while and said, “God told me to call you and we are supposed to put together a men’s event in the near future.” He said, “I’ve been waiting on something just like this and have wanted to do this for a while.” We were off to the races. The wheels were in motion.
An idea starts in the mind and then sets in motion energy toward an outcome. That idea has to come from somewhere. All day every day I believe we get “the nudge” to take some kind of action and typically all day we avoid it because of the pressures of our every day lives. But what if we begin to listen to these nudges and take action on them? What if everyone who ever felt that nudge took action what could happen? When we answer the nudge big things happen. God shows up. People are moved. Things happen.
I invite men all over the state of TN to join us Friday March 25th at Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro, TN for the inaugural “Put God First- Men of the Kingdom” event from 8:30–3:30 and let’s renew our faith together with a group of men and speakers who will share their insights, strategies, and faith in a way that I think you will be touched and moved.
