Isn’t it amazing how we as a people can make a decision that we did not consult the Lord about (knowing He didn’t tell us to do it our flesh did), but then when things go sour we say, “I’m waiting on the Lord to tell me to leave…” The same person that got you in that situation is the same one that will get you out of it……YOU!!!!!
This is why it is so important to keep our minds sober at all times. We become intoxicated in our thinking when we indulge too much in our own thought process, and when we get like this we can never make sound decisions. The Lord has blessed us with the capabilities to make sound decisions but those sound decisions must line up with His Word. This is why Proverbs 16:3 says Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
No matter what we may want to do in life, commit it unto the Lord so that when He gives us an answer concerning the works of life, we can be established in His perfect peace because our minds were fixed on him, and we will be established in His peace because we have committed all of our ways unto Him.
Be blessed, and before you decide, talk with the Lord, and if He doesn’t speak right away, then He is teaching you how to be still and know that He is God.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
It’s impossible to live in this world without being offended, but how do you handle the offense that is thrown at you?
“A person who cannot forgive has forgotten the great debt for which they were forgiven. When we realize that Jesus delivered us from eternal debt and torment, we will release others unconditionally. If we have a hard time forgiving, think of the reality of hell and the love of God that saved us from it.”
