How does God show us that we are going in the right direction? Does he give us some sort of sign? Yesterday, when the Pope was selected, Florida residents thought they saw an image of an angel in the clouds. Was this God’s work?
Alan Boyle, science editor for NBC news explains humans experience a type of pattern recognition known as pareidolia (a Greek word meaning “wrong shape”), meaning we are so prone to recognizing faces and other human patterns, that we often associate them to inanimate objects. Consider for a moment folks who see the face of Jesus in a piece of burnt toast, or even the “Man in the Moon.”
Science always appears to have explanations for the unexplainable. But would it not be great if God could give us signs like the image of the angel in the clouds to give us approval of disapproval of our actions or thoughts? What if God started to give us individually his approval or disapproval of our behavior? People would become aware of the actions and thoughts that would please God. This guidance from God will begin to eliminate greed, arrogance, and self love from our minds, resulting in a joyous world with people helping each other.
Possibly that angel in the clouds yesterday was God’s approval. That headache, or stomach ache may also have been God’s guidance for your thoughts and actions. Consider whatever occurs; they all may be signs from a loving God!
