The other day I was talking to someone about something I have been praying about. I have been praying for guidance and about Joel getting out of the army. I have been praying for the Lord's will to be done but I have been feeling totally lost, I have no idea what I am suppose to be doing. The advice given to me was to ask for a scripture. As I studied my Bible this morning the Lord answered that prayer, He led me to
Psalm 27:11 - 14
11 Teach me Your way, O LORD,
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!
In some ways it totally makes sense in others I am still trying to figure it out. The waiting part is the hardest. When we wait upon the Lord we are to have hope and confidence that he is preparing the way. That the outcome is where He wants us to be and we take comfort from knowing He is in control. Hard for a control freak like me to give up control... Another scripture comes to mind
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
