You have prayed. You have trusted. You have waited with patience and courage, but you still wonder what God desires of you. I imagine each of us have experienced this many times in our lives. We have said “God we will do whatever you desire of us. We just want to follow your path.”
How do we know if we are on that path? When we sincerely seek God’s desire, sometimes the door closes and His answer is no. Other times we have a complete peace about our choice and we know it is yes. There are times we have sought God’s direction, we have researched the options and we are still left wondering. Sometimes we will never know for certain, unless our path is blocked.
God’s gift may be allowing us to weigh the options and go with the best choice. That is what He intended all along. NIV Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
