There are sometimes in our lives when it’s easy to do the right thing. The choice is clear. There is no questions which way God wants you to go.
And there are the other times. The times when I struggle with the direction of my life. I beg God for a clear sign. A flashing neon arrow pointing the way He wants me to go.
In these times, times of uncertainty, I ask God why He doesn’t give me the answer immediately.
In my humaneness, I want things on my time. I want to know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing so I can get on about it. I’m a doer.
But God knows how fast or slow to grow us. He knows when we really need to see the next bend in the road He has planned for us.
I now look at times of transition differently. They are a time for me to press into Him. To spend extra time in prayer and in the Bible. Time to put my trust into action.
If you’re in a time of transition, don’t despair. If you seek Him, He will come. When His time is right, He will show you exactly what to do. Trust Him.
How has God shown you what He wanted you to do? What did you learn from the waiting?
