Joe and I were traveling with a friend from Billings to Harlem Montana through the Missouri breaks. There are a lot of deer on that stretch of highway. We were traveling in the evening and I was driving.
The Lord spoke to me and said; "Slow down. There are deer on the road up ahead." So I slowed down. Our friend asked me, "What's going on?"
I explained, "There are deer on the road up ahead."
He asked, "Where? I don't see any deer."
You see we were going up a hill and God had shown me that there were deer on the road on the other side of the hill.
Just as we came over the crest of the hill everyone saw clearly the herd of deer God was warning me about.
I've learned to listen carefully to the Spirit of God in my heart. When we learn to do this God tells us of "things to come".
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. John 16:13 (NKJV)
