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!
