9/02/16 No Need to Guess
“When I call you to move with Me, you will know in your heart that it is the right thing to do. If you have any check in your spirit, or are not clear as to what you are to do, stand and wait for things to unfold. There is no hurry. I would rather that you know for sure and move in confidence, than to guess and not be where I want you to be. My children do not need to guess, when I am available to confirm My directions and bring My presence to their every move. Why would you want to be where I am not? Make sure that I am the initiator of where you are going and then move with confidence. I will be there with you.”
Exodus 33:13-16 NIV
13) “If I have found favor in your eyes, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”
14) The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
15) Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.
16) How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
Psalm 127:1 AMP
Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman wakes but in vain.
Proverbs 16:9 AMP
A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.
Isaiah 30:21 NIV
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
It is such a privilege to know that we have the ability to check and double check with our Lord to make sure that we are in His will. It is also wonderful to know that the Lord desires for us to have His presence with us to accomplish things that we could never accomplish on our own.
So often we are afraid to stop and check our motives, or reverse our direction if needed, or even abandon an idea should it be out of the will of the Lord, when the Lord has provided His promise of guidance to us. He desires that we don’t make mistakes. He desires to guide us and direct us wherever we go. He wants us to be sure of our steps as we follow Him.
Thank You for Your patience with us, Lord,
