Finding Clarity

 
 
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.Proverbs 3:6 (KJV)

 

Have you ever felt like you did not know what to do or which way to go? I’m sure that you have felt that way at one time or another during the course of your life…I know I have. The question is not whether we have ever been in that position as much as it is: what did we do when facing the uncertainties of life?

  • Did we seek God’s face for His will for our lives?
  • Did we ask for God’s guidance?
  • Do we trust the Lord’s wisdom over our own?

Those are very important questions for any and all Christians. In order to serve God properly and to be an example to other believers and non-believers as well, we absolutely must check ourselves and our motives.

It is the will of God that His people live in a state of whole-life prosperity but we absolutely must do it His way and not our own. Yes, God has a way and unless we are seeking Him for His will, we will definitely miss out on God’s best for us!

6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.—Isaiah 55:6-8 (KJV)

What are you seeking? A job or career, a spouse or help for your marriage, peace of mind, a ministry? Well, God is interested in you having the best in everything but you cannot overlook allowing His will be yours both now and always.

Therefore, do you lack clarity? Are you confused? Seek God’s will in everything you do and follow the path He leads you in…He knows what’s best at all times in every circumstance.

    Thank you for linking my Article “God is For Us” and for coming by my blog. May the Lord continue to Bless your work and labour of love for Him.

    “It is the will of God that His people live in a state of whole-life prosperity”

    Spiritual prosperity, I whole heartedly agree with, and we should always be desiring this, but I have have never been convinced of the “health, wealth, and prosperity teaching”. It is true that God gives some great material blessings but it is also true that many Christians live Godly lives in great material need with no expectation for this to change in this life. To present Christians with the idea that they should that they should aways have “whole life prosperity” and that this is “God’s will” seems to me to be contrary to the Word of God and the revealed Will of God for many Christians.

      You are indeed welcome! While I respect your perspective, I do disagree with the limitation of the extent the Blessing of God reaches and transforms our lives. Unfortunately, as humans, we tend to limit God’s best for us based upon our experiences but it really doesn’t limit God or His will for us; it only limit our ability to experience the great and wonderful promises His Word provides. Thank you for commenting on this post and please keep checking back! May His best be yours! –Sebastian
