Signs are merely external means God uses to get our attention, such as supernatural phenomena, a timely event, or even a person or unexpected communication. The effectiveness of a sign will be determined by our attentiveness to His drawing and a willingness to obey.
The Need for Signs
Before the Resurrection, the only way God could communicate with His creation was through the natural and supernatural realms. Today He communicates to us through His Son, Who communicates to us Spirit to spirit.
Asking for Signs
If we are honest, most of us ask for an external, objective expression of God’s communication to us because we do not have confidence in what we know or have heard from Him internally.
The Purpose of Signs
As with other supernatural means of guidance, signs interrupt our present circumstances in order to get our attention. Generally speaking, the purpose of a sign will fall into one or more broad categories:
* To Provide Needed Information
* To Provide Needed Direction & Guidance
* To Provide Needed Confirmation & Encouragement
* To Provide a Needed Warning
* To Simply Get Our Attention
Spectacular versus Subtle
God is not obligated to use signs in proportion to the magnitude of the purpose.
