“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8 ESV
It always blows my mind when it happens. Yet … I don’t know why I am surprised … Again.
I need direction, and I say, “Father, let me hear you clearly, I don’t know what to do. Give me a sign. You lead, I’ll follow. I just need to know.”
And. He. Does.
From the most unlikely places, or conversations, or gifts, He answers.
I’m amazed by the power of asking.
Are you believing man’s word … the kind that leave you with more questions than answers? Or, are you asking, and believing, and listening for your Creator who loves you and will not leave you or forsake you?
Thanks Mal for the book. Yeah. My favorite kind … with real paper pages where words even soaked in through my fingertips – totally truth-laden. Timing was all Divine.
Thanks Levi for the call the other day, and never hedging from going down “that” road., whatever “that” may be. (You never have to guess what a Lewis man is thinking 😳, right Holly and Whit?!)
Momma-you are rock solid …. you listen, listen, listen … then, BAM – you gently pour out liquid gold, sealing in His clear word.
Thanks, God, my Creator, the Father who loves … for confirmation, confirmation, confirmation …. of what You were already whispering to my heart.
