Have You Asked the Lord About That?

Part of me is impulsive and part of me mulls things over for years and years. Sometimes the impulsive part gets me into trouble. Other times, when I give myself space to be quiet and talk to the Lord in words, I ask his advice on certain issues in my heart. I ask him for wisdom. And when I do so, I admit to him that I’m willing to hear him call me out. When I say I ask him for advice and wisdom, I don’t mean the “super spiritual” items. I mean the practical things I am facing or a task I must perform.

But the results are amazing! So often, when I ask the Lord for his advice, he gives it to me. When I ask him for wisdom, he shows me the way. His Holy Spirit lights the path in front of me.

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:21 ESV)

And yes, he does call me out from time to time. I’m grateful for that, because his words are wise. I get to modify my behavior, so I don’t fall into the same traps that lead to bad consequences the next time. So, the verse for today is:

The Lord is good to those who are waiting for him, to the soul which is looking for him. –Lamentations 3:25
