Let Him Direct You as You Wait

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil” Proverbs 3:5-7, ESV.

Without God we can’t do anything, but with Him nothing’s impossible. Amen. Humility is living with an understanding of who God is and who we’re not. God wants to lead us and guide our decisions. Not because He has an issue with control. He wants to lead us to His perfect will for our lives. He wants us to experience His grace and His goodness.

Life has been unecesserily hard for so many of us for a long time, and when we think about it, we have to examine if we’ve truly been seeking the Lord for His wisdom and waiting for an answer, or leaning to our own understanding and doing what seems right. If we’re honest, we will admit the truth. We have not been waiting on Him. We may pray and say, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” And when we get silence, we say, “Well! That’s my answer! Do what I want and go where I please.” God’s silence doesn’t mean He’s giving us permission.

Silence means to wait.

God wants to guide us, and direct our paths as He promised He would. Just because He shows us a glimpse of His plan for our lives, doesn’t mean He wants us to go now, act now, do it now. He guides us with His Word and through His Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of peace.

Don’t be lazy when it come to waiting on the Lord’s direction. Don’t think that you’re so wise that you can guide your own life. See your constant need for His leading. Get alone with the Lord and say, like Jacob, “I’m not letting you go Lord until you bless me with wisdom and direction. I’m not leaving until you show me exactly what you want me to do and when! Because I want to be in your perfect will, I’m waiting to hear from you my God!”

“The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. ” Lamentation 3:25, ESV.

(As you read this, don’t think this is for someone else. This is for you.)

    I am encouraged, uplifted & inspired EVERY morning when I read my Morning Devotion! But it does something EXTRA SPECIAL for me when I read my FAVORITE BIBLE VERSES..PROVERBS 3:5-7….
    We MUST trust the Lord with EVERYTHING in us!! And we can’t figure people & things out..we’ll drive ourselves crazy😵..that’s why we can’t lean on our own understanding..before making ANY decisions I ALWAYS..take it to the Lord In Prayer…He will direct, guide & instruct us on the path/direction we need to go or the decisions we need to make…I’ve tried MANY times to do things on my own..without asking the Lord for guidance..& whoa was me..but..once again..His Grace & Mercy saw me through😊!! I could’ve avoided some unnecessary hurt, pain, embarrassment & even bills had I just been OBEDIENT, TRUSTED HIM, ACKNOWLEDGED HIM & most importantly..WAITED ON HIM..but..I LEARNED..THANK YOU JESUS..I LEARNED!!!
    🎤Sometimes in life you’ll find that you get in a hurry..
    But when you have assurance no need to worry..
    You can wait, wait, wait on the Lord & you’ll see..
    He always keeps His Word..
    But just trust in Him..
    Don’t be dismayed..
    Patience in time of trouble..
    Trust & believe Him..
    And everything God promised you will receive it🎵
    Lord, Please Continue To Bless & Shine Your Light Of Love Upon Your Obedient Servant Sister Kesha, Her Awesome Team, This Amazing Ministry, My Sister Felicia & My DOTK Sisters💖!!
    Be Blessed, Stay Humble & Encouraged!!!
    Love Always, Your DOTK Sister In Christ, Wendy💕
