The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11 NRSV
We come across many moments in our lives, where we stand at cross-roads when making an important decision. As believers, we prioritize God's approval and blessings in all our works, therefore we often ponder whether our decisions align to His direction. Before we try to discern God's will in our life, we are often unaware that we must first seek to understand His ways and conditions for our life.
And I will put this third into the fire, refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested.
Zechariah 13:9 NRSV
Gold must be brought under fire to be purified. Likewise, we must first be subjected to many testing moments and trials, so that our insecurities and weaknesses would be brought to light. Only in the most challenging circumstances, we can analyse the worst part of ourselves and surrender them to God to be purified. When we read the scriptures, the entire journey of the Israelite's from the time they were brought from Egypt, they were structured to understand that God's presence and guidance is a must for their victory and blessings. Hence, we need to understand that every decision that we make on our own will be guided by our desires of the present time. If our desires and decisions overshadow God's will in our lives, it will not succeed.
If you can trust God to save you for eternity, you can trust Him to lead you for a lifetime.
- David Platt
Let us be sure that God's presence gives us peace, we can be confirmed that there would be no doubts along the way and that every door would open as God intends, we will not have to strive in order to receive our blessings but rather wait in prayer and be assured by His promises. We have to assess our every decision to be sure whether it is one guided by our indecisiveness or by the presence of God.
The end of our abilities is only the beginning of God's possibilities!
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
John 15:7-8 NRSV
