It was a Saturday when my husband came downstairs and said we received an automated call from our bank stating that one of our debit cards was going to be inactivated. To keep this from happening, he was instructed to punch number one on the phone.
Thankfully, my husband was on the alert. He immediately suspected something off so he quickly hung up. We then called our bank and after speaking with a representative, found it to be a fraudulent call.
I’m not sure what would have happened had he punched the number instructed; could we unknowingly given them access to our funds? Or were they simply out for more information to hack into our account?
The event reminded me of 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” And he sure knows our vulnerabilities and how to trip us up. And all it takes is just one weak moment.
Being alert and listening for God’s still small voice can save us from many a heartache. Many years ago while vacationing with my family, we decided to take a side road up a mountain pass that eventually ran out of pavement and turned to nothing more than a dirt road with room enough for only one vehicle. Those type of roads where one vehicle has to pull as far to the side as possible so the other car can squeeze past. Hubby decided to turn the car around which meant a lot of negotiation on such a narrow road. Out of the blue I told him no…wait. Just a few moments later an oncoming vehicle came barreling down the road. Had we been turning the car around, we would have been hit or worse, sent over the embankment.
I love seeing God’s handiwork in my life, but all too often I’m so busy moving from one task to the next, that I don’t stop to enjoy life and more importantly, listen for God’s still small voice. The one that many say is merely women’s intuition but I believe it’s God; the voice inside.
