Sometimes you come upon stumbling blocks in your life. You seek our God's direction, and somewhere along the way you get stuck, or things don't go your way. Now, the goal that God has put forth for you seems difficult, or cloudy. You begin to question if this is what God wants for your life. You become impatient.
What do you do?
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.- 1 Corinthians 14:33 (NLT)
God still has the plan for you. I found some helpful advice from Haly Ministries in a blog, How To Move From Confusion To Clarity- With God's Help. God has a way out from your confusion, and it can be found in His word!
The blog goes through some of the things that can cause confusion-
Doubt- We ask God for something, then wonder if we will get it.
Indecision- when we come upon two good opportunities, we wonder which one to take. We don't always have all the information we need to make that decision.
Not Hearing God's Voice Clearly- We have trouble hearing His call when there are some many other voices speaking into us.
Here are some tips to help clear the clutter in your mind to let God come through-
- Still Your Mind- Take some time to get away from the outside world (social media, news, TV, kids, work, etc.) Psalm 46:10- Be still, and know that I am God. Quiet your mind so you can allow God to help gather your thoughts and remember His word.
- Slow Down- don't be impatient and get ahead of yourself. Wait on God.
- Read the Bible- things will become clearer when you dive into His word.
- Seek Godly Counsel- don't hesitate to turn to a pastor, your Bible study group, or a mentor. Let them speak God's word into your life!
