Hearing from God

Jul 14, 2008 | Christianity

I’m very frustrated.

I’ve been praying about something for a long time. I asked God to make it plain to me what I should do, and yesterday I think He did. I was reading in the morning, and two separate books both seemed to tell me that it is better to wait through a storm, and wait until God tells you what the next move is, than to move on your own plans and pray He blesses your ideas. Then, later that day, my father told me the same thing, from his life experience.

That doesn’t make the journey much easier. I am currently wishing very much to do things my own way, despite God’s answer. But God.

God, please grant me the grace I need. Help me through this. I want to get out, and go my own direction, but I’m trusting in you. Please make the path for me.

Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the LORD came to him: “Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there. I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food.”
1 Kings 17:7-9
