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.

Agiver of uplifting to continue to write those things which reach those going through to give the testament of how God Jesus and The Holy Ghost Spirit has affected your life. Being a Minister grand daughter on dad side and a Pastor granddaughter on mom’s side and falling to the wayside it has been the hardest struggle for me to get it right. As I sit here in tears I find it amazing how things I have said and done over the past few months shows up in DOTK Devotional minus marriage never been married but have 4 adult children and 8 grands. I always think scriptures or certain reads our for someone else and I will text the what DOTK has said and would equate that to them because I never thought I was good enough clean enough or even a little righteous to feel it would be for me. When I got to the bottom of this Devotional well let me just say. My face is a new waterfall. Sister Triplet again I Thank ABBA FATHER FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE AND I LOVE YOU WITH THE HEART IF CHRIST. I AM GOING RO THERE EVEN IF IT TAKES ME TO MY LAST BREATH. BLESSINGS TO ALL
