I’ve been through some PHASES and JUNCTIONS in life where I am to take a decision, and it appears more easy and convenient to say NO. Many times, when I have to view with my ‘myopic lens’, the direction of ‘NO’ appears more attractive to me, than the direction of ‘YES’.
But deep down in my heart, the TRUTH, never leaves me. My conscience that is been awakened by the Holy Spirit, would not let me rest, as it keeps piercing my heart, and turning it to the RIGHT direction.
At times, when I go to the Lord in prayers, and He gives a ‘YES’ on some of these issues, I often struggle with it, but in the end, I know I’ve got to SUBMIT!
On few occasions, I find myself asking: “Lord, why do I have to be the one to go through ‘THIS AND THAT’?“….And I hear Him whisper: “I already prepared the ‘BEST’ for you, and I don’t want you to miss it.”
By the grace of God, I’ve never had cause to regret following the Lord WHOLEHEARTEDLY… Instead, I always look back and have cause to be thankful for making me take the ‘BEST PATH’!
- Even when it doesn’t make sense to the natural man,
- Even when the other side appears ‘greener’,
- Even when friends seem to be succeeding on a different ‘path’,
- Even when it appears as if you are ‘left behind’,
- Even when it appears you are all alone,
- Even when it appears that you have to bury all the long years of your personal plan just like that,
- Even if it means you have to give up some of your well crafted ambitions,
- Even if it will cost you a LITTLE MORE…
JUST SAY, YES LORD!
In our journey here on earth as pilgrims, knowing fully well that there is ONE who knows it ALL, and CAN NEVER LIE; the most important thing is letting THAT ONE (GOD) lead and direct you in ALL YOUR WAYS!
Getting to hear God by yourself and for yourself is KEY! Receiving your CONVICTION directly FROM GOD (in the place of personal consistent prayers and studying the Word with a pure and open heart) is something you must never joke with if you must navigate this life SUCCESSFULLY AND VICTORIOUSLY!
As long as you are sure about that leading from God in that ‘direction’; My dear, JUST TRUST AND OBEY! I have come to understand that most times, GOD’S WILL may not appear attractive at the beginning, but when we FOLLOW Him, even if with tears at the beginning; in the end, we get to understand the ‘WHY’ and will be eternally grateful to Him.
The longer one delays in taking that particular DECISION, having gotten a clear direction from God, the more one delays the MANIFESTATION of that ‘promised blessing’.
God’s GRACE is sufficient TO WALK THAT PATH AND RUN THAT RACE. You’ll definitely rejoice in the end. WHEN YOU HAVE HIS LEADING, YOU HAVE HIS FULL BACKING. SO ARISE AND OBEY THAT ‘HARD, BUT BEST YES”!
Isaiah 55:8-9: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts”.
Be encouraged, GOD IS WORKING THINGS OUT IN YOUR FAVOUR.
God bless you.
