The faith journey can feel like a repetitive cycle. We read God’s Word, we go to worship, we listen and learn. We believe we understand and will now go and live according to what we have learned…then as humans tend to do, we try to take control and go off our own way and end up frustatred and wonder what happened? Then it’s back to God’s Word and going to worship, etc. How can this cycle be broken? When we get to a point where we are about to take some form of action, something that we normally would do, we need to pause, step aside and pray. Ask God what do you want me to do here? Ask Him to give us wisdom according to His plan and then wait and listen. It could be we are spending a siginificant amount of our time on something God never intended for us to be doing. The only way to find out is between you and Him. Seek the will of the Lord for your life and live. Amen.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
