Have you ever come to a crossroads, NOT KNOWING inside that the choice you make might change the rest of your life?
Will that choice be good? Will it be bad? So standing in uncertainty we turn our eyes towards heaven. There is a path that leads to life while others lead to death and if we are listening to the Holy Spirit He will ALWAYS guide us into life.
So choices are key in this hour- its important who you align yourself with, are they full of life or death? Will they hold you to your past, keep you stuck or will they be used by God to propel you into your heavenly future?
And taking no action is a choice just as much as taking an action towards something. When we decide “not to decide” then we’ve made a choice.
And God sees all of it and takes our choices into account.
So what do we do when we are faced with hard choices in our life?
My advice: (sincerely) be prepared to wait it out while praying your way through each day UNTIL you get a confirmation for direction. This way you will still be moving forward while trying to honestly do you’re very best in moving towards life/Christ’s plan for your life.
And you will need to throw out the “Fast Food I want it NOW” mentality because the things of the kingdom don’t work that way.
When I set my face like flint towards a certain direction in the spirit/natural (because this is how MY faith works) I know that I’ve ALREADY started moving towards that goal spiritually. I might not know how long it will take to get me there, or how hard it will be “going thru”, but once I get moving in prayer “it’s all over and Fat Lady sang.”
The process is the same for all (whether you understand that or not) because every decision/choice/goal will involve preparation. Time and preparation for the Lord to start to ready your heart to receive that which He has promised you.
Gen 28:15 states:
15 I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
However, the promises cannot be confirmed until you state with your mouth “ok God, I’m scared to death of this choice because I don’t know whether or not it’s a good choice or a bad choice, but none the less I’m going to walk forward in it and trust YOU that you will take care of me.”
Father I RELEASE this thing to You knowing that you work ALL things for my good – according to Your will in Christ Jesus, and I’m not going to take it back, I’m just going to trust You because You only give good/perfect gifts to Your children. Help my heart NOT to be disappointed with WHATEVER YOU DECIDE in this situation- but I’m coming forward in it none the less trusting that You have MY best interest at heart.
THEN the process starts! THIS is where you find out God’s will in specific situations but you have to “GIVE VOICE TO THE CHOICE!” And then trust the Lord in it! Keep praying until you hit that place of rest when you know you’ve done ALL you know to do in prayer.
You see, with kingdom things (things that are eternal- meaning- they can’t be touched by the devil in the natural OR by the spirit) but with kingdom things- they last forever!
Also, in prayer- there are some things that God will have a prayer warrior to pray through so that they can see His signs, wonders and miracles. This is to heighten their faith, to bolster them up so that they can continue on in their journey.
But then when we’ve completely exhausted ourselves as warriors having done all we know to do we MUST put our armor down, sometimes crying, feeling disillusioned…..sometimes thinking we missed the mark or failed…….
When you hit the place of rest (which is beyond war) there are just some places in the spirit that God will FORCE your hand OFF of that thing your praying for in prayer, because its in the place of rest, that He takes over.
Christ takes over because we’ve done our best, NOW HE is going to do THE REST in YOUR RESTING.
Because there are just some things that can only be done By His hand because He would never let you think as a Son/Daughter that you EVER did anything to have to earn that particular blessing! The place of “Rest” is the place of blessing…..and letting Him work it ALL OUT for ALL the WORLD TO SEE that HIS HAND IS UPON YOUR LIFE and that YOU are a BLESSED CHILD OF THE KING!
PRAISE GOD- I’m getting hit with the anointing while writing this! Hallelujah! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE YOU FATHER! Love to you guys!
