What or who do you rely on when you confront problems? What is it that you utilize as your search engine to find a resolution to any problem you encounter? Is there a particular pattern you follow when you hit a bump in the road called life?
Many people rely on their past experiences, their education, their close friends that have been through the same situation, consult a professional counselor, call mom or dad or close family member, or do you hit the internet?
I have to admit that most of my life I have been extremely independent and made my decisions alone. I never really felt like there was anyone I could ever count on that would consider my best interest without first considering if their own personal comfort would be affected in any way. Making my decisions this way definitely led me to make quite a lot of mistakes. What I hadn’t realized before was that when I finally made the decision, I was still not 100% sure it was the right decision.
What I want to share with you today is the ultimate search engine! It is actually the easiest one in the world with a 100% success rate. It is free and available to everyone on this planet. Curious yet? Well, it is simply to submit every question to God and wait patiently for His wisdom. The only thing you have to be aware of is that when you hit the submit button, you may have to wait a while for His answer. The key is to be patient while you are waiting. Sometimes I think the answer takes a while because God is watching to see if you have fully handed the situation over to Him.
I have never walked with more confidence in my entire life since I have handed everything over to God. I have to admit, it has not been easy to follow through with the answer given in every situation. I can only tell you that the hardest ones I have had to follow through with have given me the greatest rewards.
So now my search engine does not have anything to do with my own personal feelings. And actually, what God pushes me to do quite often is something I would have never thought of doing from searching my own thoughts and personal preferences. After seeing the end results of following God’s direction instead of my own brilliant ideas, I now am confident that I am completely useless without God. I do not want to make another decision without His perspective on every situation I encounter.
You will find true rest when you use the ultimate search engine. This one you can depend on 100% of the time for your best interest in every situation.
Isaiah 55:8 My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
