God Knows What is Best for Us

God's Will5 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 to 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.

    Discernment. Do we spend time discerning God’s will, or figuring out what to do based on our education, experience, friends, whatever. These ways don’t seem bad, but if they come first and foremost our focus is fragile. “Father Knows Best”…

    This was a blessing. Often times God gives us a clear direction but if it does not make perfect sense to our natural thought process or we cannot see the outcome in advance, we can be tempted to go our own direction. Let us as people of God truly lean on to His Wisdom, because He sees from beginning to end, Amen.
