This is really the same point that my “lessons from____” posts and my book Special Graces in Common Places are getting at. We look for what God is saying to us in Scripture, at church, in Bible studies, and the like. But what about when we are at work, or out at the grocery store, or when the unexpected happens? We need to be paying attention to the Spirit’s voice and leading all the time, not just when we expect it or when we are doing “Christian” things. To see and hear God in the ordinary, requires a greater level of spiritual discernment.
