Are you sometimes aware that you have been in the Lord*s will? And are there other times when you wonder? Join the club. I ask the Lord as often as I think of it to guide me. And then I doubt He is doing that. I have come to believe that we can hold the Lord to His promise of guidance whether we know He is guiding us or not. Sometimes I seem to fall into His will and other times I wonder. If He wants us to do a particular thing or go to a particular place, He is responsible to let us know what that is or where it is. He wouldn*t be God if He let His will be a guessing game. I ask the Lord to make me obedient and to eliminate my will from decisions, and then I don*t know for sure if He has done that. If He weren*t a bit mysterious and way above the human mind He wouldn*t be God. Sometimes it is difficult for us to know the difference between a desire of our mind and flesh and a desire of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we make a mistake and it turns out all right anyway. The biggest problems will always happen when we disobey Him on purpose. There are some scriptures that have taken some of the worry out of these things for me lately.
Psalms 37:23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
That wonderful promise doesn*t seem dependent upon me or my wisdom or lack thereof. What I need to do is trust Him.
2 Corinthians 12:9: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
We may not all have the physical weakness that Paul had but God is always beyond our weak ability to fully understand Him. He works in spite of our weaknesses.
Isaiah 35:8: And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
I don*t have to worry too much about being a fool if I am wise enough to trust Him.
