Great faith can also be acquired as we allow God to speak to us through the common, every day happenings in our lives, resulting in what I’ve come to think of as homespun faith.When our ears are “tuned” by the Holy Spirit, we will be amazed at the many ways that God speaks to us in addition to His Word. Everything that we hear must, of course, align itself with Scripture because we also have an enemy who is eager for any opportunity to deceive. People whose intention it is to hear from God must also immerse themselves in His Word and make themselves accountable to others in the body of Christ.Lord, open our spiritual ears so that we can develop homespun faith, woven together with the strong cords of your love, as we become aware of your voice speaking to us in ways that we can hear and understand. Amen!Daisy Beiler Townsend had a life-long dream of being a writer and published her first story in 1981.
