“The answer was just as easy as asking You in.”
Wow, incredible truth; one provided by Keith Green in his original composition, Your Love Broke Through.
More than we do, we need to ask God to break through our confusion, our doubts, and our fears. Instead, we forget to ask Him to be with us, inside the situation, taking the lead and guiding through the confusion. We do this because we’re so busy running to and fro, zigging this way and that, expressing frustration that we still don’t have our burning bush or ethereal voice to guide us. We tell every one but God about our need, hurt, discouragement, anxiety.
When we do pray, too often we are giving the Lord a laundry list, instead of simply asking Him to fill us with His Spirit of wisdom, discernment, and peace.
We live our lives without Him many times, simply because we don’t ask Him in and then wait for the door to shut behind Him before we start moving again.
Start asking questions, again.
Start fidgeting, again.
Start rationalizing, again.
Start being frantic, again.
Today, ask and believe that the answer is on the way, then wait patiently for God to come. I know it will be hard for some of you. It’s hard for me, too. While you wait, give this classic devotional a listen. I promise, you’ll be glad you did.
