Does God speak through mothers?

Good morning everyone,
Our theme for this month: “Hearing from God”
Our Bible verse for today: “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her; “Many women have done noble deeds, but you surpass them all!” Proverbs 31:28-29 (CSB)
Our thought for today: “Does God speak through mothers?”
The question is: “Does God speak through mothers?” And the answer is an emphatic “Yes! Yes, He does.” As we will learn in a future devotional in this series, one of the ways God speaks to us is through the wise counsel of fellow Christians. Without question, a godly mother falls into that category. So, God most certainly does speak to us through our mothers.
Sometimes a mother’s voice can even sound like the voice of God itself. I have a vivid memory from childhood of my very perturbed mother with her hands on her hips and in a booming voice yelling, “James William Mersereau, you had better get over here right now!” I knew I was in trouble and that judgment day had arrived!
But despite moments like that (which I totally deserved), I remember the words of love and compassion that were much more common from my mom. She was such a good mother, so kind and loving and wise. I experienced the love of God, and I learned about God, from my mother. Over-and-over again, God spoke to my heart through the words of my mother.
 This Sunday is Mother’s Day. It is the special day each year dedicated to honoring the mothers who make such an important difference in our lives, in our homes, in our churches, and in our nation. And it’s not just our own mothers that we pause to honor. We want to honor all women who have been good mothers, and who have served as a mother figure to others.
Join us this Sunday at Oak Hill Baptist Church as we honor the godly women who have played such an important role in our lives. Join us in-person if you are nearby or, if you are geographically distant or if you can’t make it, join us online at The service begins at 10:00.
Does God speak through mothers? Yes. Yes, He most certainly does.
God bless,
Pastor Jim
