I know there are times when a Bible verse or passage "comes to life" for me, but I believe God confirms His Word in these other ways, too. Of course, I have to be careful not to depend on circumstances alone. I need to see if something lines up with the Truth of Scriptures.
I have also have had a scripture verse, a song, or a "picture" that I couldn't get off my mind and then the Holy Spirit tells me to share it with the next person I get to pray with, and it means a lot to them.
Once, in my quiet time, God reminded me of living in Atlanta when my children were small. I learned the hard way NOT to depend on young children to keep their eyes on me in a busy parking lot or shopping mall. I started holding onto their forearms instead of letting them hold my hands.
The very next day, I was asked to pray with a person, and the Holy Spirit urged me to share that story...that God is like that with His children. He doesn't depend on us to always keep our eyes on Him or to hold onto Him. Instead, He holds onto us. The person told me that her main fear was that God would take His hand off her life if she made mistakes.
I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you,
Do not fear;
I will help you.
Isaiah 41:13 NIV
Isn't God good?
