A week ago a new position has opened at work. I think I am equipped to fill that position, but I only want to apply for it if it is within God’s will for me.
“God, can you give me a sign or speak to me through someone or something that I can know what to do?”
“I asked Megan who often get visions and dreams to pray with me. I asked her to let me know if she gets anything that will give me guidance on what to do. I asked Ruby, who has a strong opinion about everything and people listen to her, for her opinion. She told me that it might be above my reach. Sandra, who often shares with me how she reads her Bible and verses jump out at her or touch her heart thinks I have nothing to lose—I should apply for the position and God will open the doors that should be open and close the ones that should be closed. I am so confused, because I have no idea what I should do. Lord what should I do?”
“Excuse me, Missy?”
“Hi Billy, what can I do for you?”
“You look very troubled, can I help with something.”
Billy is the genitor, how would he know what I should do?
“I am looking for guidance on a decision that I have to make, but I am not sure what to do. I have so many opinions but I do not know which one to follow.”
“Well Missy, the Highest Source of all answers is God; you should ask Him and just wait and listen to His voice.”
“Billy, He doesn’t speak to me. I do not get dreams or visions. I do not pray and get answers or a Voice from above speaking to me. I do not get Bible verses that jump out at me or touch my heart. God might be speaking to other people, but He is not speaking to me.”
“Missy, you have it all wrong, the Bible says: “God who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.” (Hebrews 1:1-2)
“So Missy do not confuse yourself and seek your guidance from people’s opinions, but seek God, He painted the picture of your life and He knows the next step for you.”
A small prompting on the inside brought me to a standstill. “God is that You?”
“Missy, follow Me.”
