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.

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.

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.
