|God is never going to insert His choice amongst the enemy's and make you figure out which one is His.|
TOO MANY CHOICES. God is never going to give you too many choices. He’s never going to insert His choice amongst the enemy’s and make you figure out which one is His. The devil is the author of confusion. One of his tactics is to offer you both the left side and the right side of an issue, to make both look profitable when, in fact, neither one is the truth.
God’s Word is certain. His plan for your life is sure and full of goodness and success, joy and peace. But the enemy will spin his lies around it and cloud our judgment so that we can’t see it. Jesus died and rose again so that the Holy Spirit could be with us as our teacher, our comforter, and our guide into truth. When we find ourselves in that place of confusion with too many choices and God’s will is not clear in our view, He is the one who will give us discernment.
James says, “If any lack wisdom let him ask and the Father will give it to him liberally.” The apostle Paul prayed over the church at Ephesus to have wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of our loving God. God is never trying to hide the path from you. He is the one leading you ahead on it. It is through our seeking Him that we will find Him.
This applies to salvation. Those who are looking for the love of God, who are seeking God, will find Him, but it applies to us, His children, as well. We seek His face through time spent meditating in the Word of God. This is more than reading. It’s rereading, asking questions, studying word context. It’s learning and maturing, placing what we read in our hearts. We seek His face through worship. In His presence, He fixes things. There is no explanation for it, except we go in one way and come out better, stronger.
God’s heart is for our peace. He wants us to face every challenge in confidence and courage. His wisdom and strength are the way we do that. HE IS THE WAY we do that. And sometimes, when all else fails, when the prayer simply won’t form, when the song won’t emerge, just sitting with Him, the anointing flowing over us, is what He desires. He is God who can do the impossible. There is our faith, and we set aside the worry, the multitude of confusing choices, and make one valid decision. To believe.
“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
