In His Word Wednesday: Mark 7:7,8

Matthew 7: 7,8
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who ask receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

For the last few weeks I have been writing a series on seeking God's guidance. I wanted to share points that will help when you are at the point of making a decision. We all know when God is in the decision, it's always better for us and others. If you are just now joining us please go back and read part 1 (introduction), part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7.

Receiving...when we obediently seek the will of God, we can be sure He'll hears us and give us the wisdom we need to make the right choices. God delights in showering us with good things.

I will say it again, God is not a genie in a bottle, there to give us our every whim. He is loving, good, and full of grace. A lot of times things we ask for are not good for us or in our best interest. God knows what we need. He knows what will help us (even though we don't realize it) to become the person He wants us to be.

If you are facing a difficult decision, seek God with a pure heart, trusting Him is to give you the wisdom and discernment in making the right decision.

This is the final installment of this series. I hope that in this new year, you will find great peace and confidence in knowing that you are making the right choices based on God's guidance.

Blessings and Happy New Year!
You Are My God by Nicol Sponberg

In His Word Wednesday: Is 64:4

Isaiah 64:4
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear. Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits on Him.

This is one that is difficult for me...waiting. In this hurry-up world, waiting for anything can cause us to lose our temper, our good sense, and our tongues...often more than we can admit. We don't like to wait for anything. We want it right now. The Word of God lets us know that we will learn some of life's greatest lessons while we wait. God promises that He acts on our behalf when we wait for Him. If we want to, we can run ahead of Him. God will use these long pauses in our lives as blessings. But often times, we try to fix things on our own, or manipulate our circumstances. If we wait on the Lord then our sovereign God will act on our behalf. It's our choice.

In His Word Wednesday: Mark 11:22-24

Please forgive me for not posting last week. I feel terribly ashamed. I have to say sometimes I can be the queen of procrastination. Then I've missed a very important opportunity.

Mark 11:22-24
So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

For the last few weeks I have been writing a series on seeking God's guidance. I wanted to share points that will help when you are at the point of making a decision. We all know when God is in the decision, it's always better for us and others. If you are just now joining us please go back and read part 1 (introduction), part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.

These verses are very clear in what fifth thing we need to do when seeking God's guidance. Jesus tells us just to "believe." Sounds easy doesn't it? Well depending on the circumstances, and what guidance is needed, many times it is not easy at all. We all know God, in His sovereignty, is capable of doing anything. Many of us have stumbling blocks that makes belief easy. Sometimes we think we do not deserve. Let me stop here and say, "God loves you and has plans to prosper you." Often we need to stop and evaluate what we are asking. Reach deep is side and honestly ask, "Is this the best for me and my life?" Thankfully, God knows what is best for each of us, and He knows what tomorrow brings. Praise you Lord for your sovereignty.

In His Word Wednesday: Psalm 119:105

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

For the last few weeks I have been writing a series on seeking God's guidance. I wanted to share points that will help when you are at the point of making a decision. We all know when God is in the decision, it's always better for us and others. If you are just now joining us please go back and read part 1 (introduction), part 2, part 3, part 4.

Meditating on God's word is the 4th thing we need to do when seeking God's guidance. I often like to say marinate on God's word instead of meditate, because we need to dive into God's word, rolling and bathing ourselves in it. Or in simple terms, spend more time reading our Bible. All answers we need in life are written there. God's word is living and breathing, and it has a power so powerful that our little minds can not understand. The more time we spend in God's word the clearer our path will become as it lights our path. So don't remain in darkness, fretting over what you should do, but meditate in God's word, letting it lead you from the darkness to safety.

In His Word Wednesday 1 John 5:14,15

1 John 5:14,15
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

For the last three weeks I have been writing a series on seeking God's guidance. I wanted to share points that will help when you are at the point of making a decision. We all know when God is in the decision, it's always better for us and others. This is part two in seeking God's guidance. If you are just now joining us please go back and read part 1, part 2, part 3.

The third thing we need to look at is asking. God promises that when we ask according to His will, He hears us. And when we know that He hears us, we know He has answered, even though the answer may come over a long period of time.

I have to point out a key point in these verses. These verses are often used out of context, leading people to believe they can ask for anything and God will supply. God is not a genie. We can't ask and poof, we get it or it happens. God doesn't work that way. It says, "according to His will." God has a plan for each of us, and He knows what's best for us. His will often doesn't coincide with our wants. Just keep in mind that God loves you more than you can imagine.

Blessings and Happy Sewing!
