Have you ever thought that God was giving you a clear sign that things were supposed to go a particular way in life, but for some reason or other it just didn’t turn out that way? It is so disconcerting when that happens. Then you’re trying to figure out what happened? Did you misunderstand or is Satan trying to step in and mess things up? He does that sometimes, you know. He will do anything to take God’s people off course if he sees them making progress toward winning new souls for the harvest. When things like this happen, we need to take a step back and evaluate what it is that God wants. It’s His church after all. Go to God in prayer and ask him to give you discernment to be able to see what His will is. I believe, if we ask and then truly listen for His answer, He will lead us in the direction He wants us to go.
I leave you with this thought for the day: “When the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us, I believe we gain a built-in inclination to take our concerns and needs to the Lord in prayer.” -Shirley Dobson
