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
