Have you ever just felt like you were
- fresh out of ideas...
- running into dead ends...
- banging your head against a wall...not sure which way to turn?
I don't pretend to have the answer to this problem that appears to be common to many of us. But God's Word, The Bible, does have a lot to say to us about how we should go about seeking His plan for our lives...The verses quoted above from Luke's Gospel are a good place to start:
- "Ask...Seek...Knock..." and then go to Psalm 27:14, which says:
- "Wait on the Lord;"
- "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart;"
- "Wait, I say, on the Lord!"
"Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him."Lord, I am learning to wait on You...to answer my questions, acknowledge my seeking, and to open that door in Your good time...and I look forward to hearing Your still small voice saying,
"This is the way, walk in it,"...whenever I "turn to the right hand or whenever I turn to the left." (Isaiah 30:21)Proverbs 16:3 reminds us to "Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established..."
and in verse 9 it says, "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."
So the next time you find yourself running into those road blocks, stop and ask for directions...and God will direct your steps. You can't go wrong that way!!!
Have a blessed, productive day!
