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.)

      This increases my faith and patience knowing that God is working even in the middle of silence……there is surely light at the end of the tunnel.

  8. I am guilty at times, I pray to God and if I don’t hear from him. I begin to start trying to fix my own problems thinking that by my faith if I don’t show my works in trying to show God my faith believing to be healed. I feel I’m failing God. But it’s the other way around. I need to be more patient and wait to hear from him, than trying to fix my health issue when I Don’t hear from him. Thank you for sharing. God bless ! Amen !
