Direction is highly sought after–so many prayers, “Show me the way to go.” “I don’t know what to do–please!”
These are pleas that I hear continually. But they don’t stop to think; they are too desperate for a ‘new’ answer, to hear.
I have shown each of you the way–laid down every step in My Word.
But the path is revealed through the steps taken. As you walk out each step, more is revealed. Your path is unveiled through obedience.
“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.” Proverbs 19:20-21
If you skim My Word, you’re missing the Truth.
The man who has ‘eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear’ is willing to change. He looks deeper into the message, for he is ‘scouring’ the Word for hidden meaning.
Those unwilling are blinded–won’t see. They have a pretense of wanting to learn, but turn their face–won’t discern; when given a task that they perceive is too hard for them to do.
Make a decision.
Decide to be willing and step forth, announcing–here am I! Then, dig deep into My Word–not simply read, but dig; with the heart attitude of, ‘I am willing to do what I see.’
And you will see more, for I will open the door–
when you seek Me–willing.
“‘And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off for ever.” I Chronicles 28:9
“A man’s steps are ordered by the Lord; how then can man understand the way?” Proverbs 20:24
“But, as it is written, ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.’ God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches every thing, even the depths of God.
For what person knows a man’s thoughts except the spirit of the man which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit.
The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” I Corinthians 2:9-14
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:26
“‘And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!'” Luke 11:9-13
“I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” Psalms 32:8
