After a few days of being tormented by the evil one, a breakthrough came. The badgering wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle with the help of Jesus, but frustrating nonetheless. If you’ve read a few of my posts, then you know that I believe in physical signs of spiritual manifestations, especially when the sign is a bird. Yesterday, after I left the house to go to the bank, my neighbor called and asked me if I saw the white doves sitting on my roof. White doves? I’ve never seen them in the wild, so I drove back home hoping to catch a glimpse, but they had already flown off. They probably escaped from somewhere and stopped in for a bite to eat. Whatever the case, I’m happy to know that they were at my house and that someone saw them.
What does this mean? Does it mean the Holy Spirit descended upon my home? Maybe, but I think he’s already there. Did you know that the name Jonah means “dove”? What is the sign of Jonah that Jesus mentioned? God sent Jonah to preach to Nineveh to help turn them from their wicked ways, like the resurrection of the dead. I believe it’s a confirmation of my calling; to speak to those who may think they have salvation, when maybe they don’t, the people that are Christian in name only. God knew I needed his confirmation, so he sent me a sign.
What can you learn from this experience? Pay attention to the physical signs confirming that God may be speaking to you.
Thank you for reading and sharing my posts. I appreciate every one of you!
And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. John 1:32
