Just Make a Choice...No Guesswork involved...

Have you ever watched the game "Let's make a deal?" Have you ever thought about decisions in life and what would happen if you had picked another path in life? How do we know what God's BEST plan is for us?

This is God's Word on the subject:

"As soon as Babylon's seventy years are up and not a day before (translated as "At just the right time, not a second before"), I'll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans (not just plan... but PLANS) to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. "When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. "When you come looking for me, you'll find me. "Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed." God's Decree. "I'll turn things around for you. I'll bring you back from all the countries into which I drove you"—God's Decree—"bring you home to the place from which I sent you off into exile. You can count on it. Jeremiah 29:11-13

You see, I've been meditating on this thought for a few weeks now. It's not that we have choices or opportunities that we get to pick from... You see our paths are already laid out for us... As we walk, we learn things about ourselves and about God that make us into the person he wants us to be.

But here is the gist of all the seeking and the path walking and the direction guidance we ask for... We must seek GOD, then all these other things will be added unto us. Seek Him first, seek Him and not direction... Seek God and you will find His will for you.

You don't have to wonder what's behind all the other doors... just pick one and walk through it. Walk and seek the Lord and He will fill you with his glory and he will direct your steps. You don't have to know where you are going, you just have to walk along. Praying and seeking as you go, trusting and believing that what he's bringing you to is something good... something you are hoping for...

Just wanted to share what I've been meditating on the past few weeks. What peace there is in not having to know where the path is leading, just knowing who's leading me...

In Christ,
