Heed God's Promptings!

A man's heart plans his way: but the LORD directs his steps. (Prov. 16:9) 

Nothing wrong with planning. Nothing wrong with thinking it through. Nothing wrong with doing your charts, listing all the pros and cons, talking it over. But as you are moving along, stay sensitive to the quiet, yet all-important prompting of God through His Holy Spirit. It's easier to steer a moving car. Just get the car rolling and you can push it into the filling station to get the gas. But it's hard to get it moving from a dead stop. So you're on your way, you're making your plans, you're thinking it through. Just stay open. . . . 

As author Henry Blackaby says, "Watch to see where God is at work and join Him!" Just go there. Why do you want to be anywhere God isn't at work? 

The Mystery of God's Will 

God's promptings are all around us. It is also in us too! Yet, in spite of all this, we often have trouble heeding those promptings. The trouble can come in so many different angles. It can often because we are too distracted or under a great deal of distress to be able to hear God's voice in the midst of the chaos. Heeding God's promptings requires a great deal of discipline and discernment. 

In order for us to heed His promptings, we have to first recognize His voice. Al kinds of questions can be asked ranging from the simple to the more complex and deeper-thinking ones. There's a subject that is talked about very little in our churches today and it's called The Issachar Anointing. This anointing has (and will) play a very vital role in our lives as Christians. You can learn more about the subject HERE

The mystery of God's will is exactly that. . . . mysterious. It is His mysterious will that makes our Christian walk so exciting at the same time. When we least expect Him to speak to us, that is usually the miracle happens in our lives. I ask God every single day to help me to learn how to listen more and talk less. I want to experience less of me and more of Him. My dear friends, the more effort you pour into making it less of you and more of God Himself, the better off you will be in the long run. Not only in the here and now, but in eternity as well. Let us acknowledge our need for God in our daily living in manner that requires humility and hunger for Him. Before you know it, the mysterious will all of a sudden turn into the magnificent. Be ready! It will happen! All you need to do is listen to God's voice (prompting). 

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
