Thus says the Lord!

It’s funny what i can learn from Daniel, my Down Syndrome son. Many years ago he came down and asked for a chocolate cookie. Well he had already had his quota so I said no. He went away and came back a few minutes later and told me that God said he was to have a cookie. Now it’s hard to argue with thus says the Lord. For years after that he would say ” God said.” He had confused his own will and desires with God and realized that ” God said,” carried some weight. Unfortunately for Daniel it did not carry weight with his dad and there was no cookie that night and no positive response to ” God said,” unless it was good for him.
How many of us have, over the years, confused our own will and desires with God’s will? How many times have you heard from brothers and sisters ” thus sayeth the Lord,” when they were clearly following their own path? Discerning the voice of God, it is a huge part of who we are in the Lord.
