When seeking God’s will it can be hard waiting for God to answer. Sometimes we want to hurry and rush into what we think is His will and then wonder why things aren’t going too smoothly. I know this is a marriage blog but I have been having a burden to write on this topic. The bonus of this post is that when my heart is right, It can make a difference in my marriage also!
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33)
He tells us in His Word that first and foremost we have to have our hearts right with Him in order for Him to perform His will in our lives. I can truly say that when I quit flirting with the World and really gave my all to God and allowed Him to work in my life, That is when I saw a major change for the better in my life, home and family. By seeking Him in prayer and fasting, it shows our sincerity in wanting a different life and God can begin to show us areas in our lives we need to work on. Not to mention our Hubbys and children see it too :)
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Matthew 7:7)
This verse kinda goes along with the first, when we truly begin asking in prayer, seeking on our knees for Him to move in us, and humble knocking with our hearts, we can begin to see and feel Him guiding us into the direction He has for us to take. His ways aren’t as ours and neither His thoughts as ours, don’t get discouraged if His plan is different from how you imagined it. His plan is always better than ours!
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.(Matthew 21:22)
Have faith and believe that He is working and I will receive what He has for me! He is my Guide in this life, He has already walked this path before me!
Be still, and know that I am God: (Psalm 46:10)
He knows all things before we get there! He is always on time and working. We may not see it immediately but you can rest assured in His promises that He is working in our best interest!
For This God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death. (Psalm 48:14)
Isn’t it great to know that our God is forever, He will be a guide to us till we pass on from this life! We can live knowing that as long as I give my 100% He will give me His! Trust Him and He will show His will. Remember it may not be today but it will come and we can be thankful we waited on Him! He knows our best interest, He knows our needs and desires! He knows what is best for me!
I'd love for you to share something and/or verses that may encourage you when you are seeking God’s will in your life or in situations that arise sometimes?
