The second definition of a sign according to dictionary.com is “any object, action, event, pattern, etc., that conveys a meaning.” When most people think of signs, they think of billboards or posters, but a sign can be everywhere, and made of everything. The signs we see most are those 30 second videos called commercials. Let’s face it; commercials are just signs telling us what the world says we need in order to be happy. We also see billboards and posters everywhere we go. We cannot get away from the signs of the world that tell us what the world considers the secrets to happiness. These signs make it very easy for Christians to get sucked into being a part of the world, but we must remember that once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we are not of this world. We must do our best to ignore the signs of this world, and look for the signs that God gives us in order to live the life that God wants us to live.
I am not talking about signs that tell us about the second coming of Christ or the end of the world. We should already be living as if Christ is going to come back at any moment. I am talking about the signs that God gives us that show us glimpse of who He is, and how we are suppose to live. If you are lucky you might actually see a sign, poster, or billboard with Scripture on it, but those are few and far between. We often have to look a bit harder to see the signs that God gives us. It could be a person in your life that constantly laughs whom God is using to remind you that you are to live with a joyful heart every day. A sign from God could also come in the form of somebody helping another person to remind you that we are to be encouraging each other and building each other up (see 1 Thessalonians 5:11) . Watching a father play with his child could also be a sign from God to remind you how much you heavenly Father loves you. Signs from God confirming and reminding us of His Word are everywhere. We just need to slow down enough to recognize them. So, the next time you feel as if this world is crashing in on you, slow down, take a deep breath, and look around you; you might just be surprised at what you see.
