Changing God’s Mind

Amos was listening to God.  Two different times God said (my paraphrase) “I’m going to rain down all this destruction on the people”.  Amos said “That’s too much!  They won’t survive!”  and scripture says “and so the Lord relented” (see Amos 7).

I think that sometimes we feel that things are written in stone.  I’ve heard so many people say ‘well God will do what He wants.’  Amos intervened and God relented.  I think there’s more to being a prayer warrior than just standing against darkness.  We need to also be listening to God and talking to Him.

After all, He is after relationship, and relationship requires a two-way conversation.

What are you and God talking about today?
