Note to self: when I have a KNOWING what to do and I keep hesitating, there are ramifications, not only in my life, but in the lives of the others involved.
God is always in the business of increasing, of doing good, of making sure we completely go over the top in everything every time.
If He’s giving me direction and I keep hesitating, I’m actually creating complications in His Master Plan not only for me but those who will be affected by my obedience or my hesitation, or delayed obedience which is actually disobedience. If I stand around worrying how this is gonna affect this person or that situation, I’m actually throwing a wrench into the mechanism of God’s work.
1 KINGS 18:21 Elijah came near to all the people and said, How long will you halt and limp between two opinions? … AMP
JAMES 1:5-8 If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believing, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. MSG
I’m saying, “Father, help me to see when I’m doing this – halting between 2 opinions, being indecisive, doubting, wavering – not trusting Your Word that says You hear me when I pray according to Your will. Your will is Your Word, so as long as my prayers line up with Your Word, I’ve this confidence that I have what I’ve asked of You. You’ve told me clearly to fear not! to not worry! so that’s it! I listen and obey. I do what You show me to do, and say what I hear You say. Thank You. I take this. I have it, and I forgive … Mercifully, as You forgive me. All in Jesus name.”
