In my last two posts, I Pray, Does God Hear Me, Does He Answer Me?? – (Part 1), http://wp.me/p5nZpi-hK, and I Pray, Does God Hear Me, Does He Answer Me?? – (Part 2), http://wp.me/p5nZpi-i5, we’ve been talking about seeking God’s guidance through prayer.
Part 1 touched on our human tendency to put God into “our box”, how to know what God’s will is for us, and whether or not God answers our prayers. To illustrate this, I used an example of choosing between two colleges. Part 2 touched on whether or not God is answering our prayers because we still have so many unanswered questions. In Part 3 we’ll be answering the question we left off with from Part 2 –
HOW SHOULD I PROCEED THEN?
When you feel a prompting to further investigate, or clarify a question, go for it! When you’re just doing “your thing”, and suddenly a thought comes to mind, this could be God prompting you. Investigate 🙂
God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. – Job 33:14
Keep this in mind, questioning doesn’t mean your ideas, or desires are bad choices. Instead, seeking and receiving answers to your questions will give you clarity and a sense of peace, enabling you to take steps forward.
So proceed in the direction you feel most led towards. And trust that God will “shut the door” if it’s the wrong choice, and “open the door” to the right choice …the Lord opened a door of opportunity for me. – 2 Corinthians 2:12
WARNING: Do Not attempt to force open a closed-door. Trust that God will “open the ‘right’ door” for you. I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full – John 10:10
The more you actively seek God’s guidance, and follow His promptings, the more confidence you’ll have in God. Know in your mind and your heart that He will show up to guide and direct you in all your decisions. No decision or circumstance is too big, or too small for God.
EXPECT AND LOOK FOR GOD’S ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS:
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. – Psalm 17:6
