So many people, so want to know what the future holds, that they may even do something, that God does not want them to do, and that is seeking ungodly counsel. Taking them, further, and further into darkness.
It is true, that we do not know what the future holds. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. But the key is knowing God knows. And God can guide a person.
But, anyone, who seeks ungodly counsel, by going to fortune tellers, or reading cards, or trusting in astrology etc. Is asking for trouble. They are asking, for God to get upset, and when He gets upset, His spirit, of protection can depart from a person. Saul was an example of that.
The Bible tells us, about him, and other examples. But it also tells us, that people perish, for lack of vision. That can include Christians who think they are Christians, but are not walking in the light of Gods word. Yes, Gods word, is that light. Gods word, brings understanding, by the Holy Spirit, to have vision. To have light.
We don’t have to be in darkness, concerning the future. Concerning, our futures, concerning, guidance, or insight. When one is walking in darkness, fear can overwhelm them. People have fear, because the future, is not clear. But, when you trust God, and your faith grows, by His word, you can have a sense of well being. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7
God, by His Holy Spirit, can speak to you to guide you. To give you vision. The Bible tells us people perish, because they do not have vision. But the reason why they do not have vision, is, because they do not keep Gods law. They don’t read it, they don’t take it to heart. They think they can do better without it. They do not make time, or discipline themselves for it. They have no fear of God, and that is a dangerous place to be. They are miserable, and unhappy, because they do not know God, and what He says. WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH, BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE. PROVERBS 29:18. Maybe you want to be happy?……
So many people, have gifts and callings, that are sitting dormant, because they do not activate them by God. By His ways. So they stay in darkness. They are hidden, in darkness, because they do not seek the light. If they only knew, without a doubt, in trust of God, that He was the only source to go to… The light of Gods word, His holy spirit, would show them, where to find them, how to cultivate those gifts, and to be prosperous, etc. The eyes of your understanding, being enlighted; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. Ephesians 1:18. Even, here as I stopped, and looked in His word, He gave me this scripture for you. Thats who He is, He will speak to your heart, by His spirit, by His word, to guide you. He loves you, and me. But, we must seek Him, we must call on Him. We must pray. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3
But, to be honest, and I am learning myself, in this, is the motivation, has to be right. So many people, have greed, as the incentive, to be successful, and really that is the wrong motivation. I guess, I can say that, because I have learned, to make my relationship with God, the main goal. He is a person. Maybe you cannot see Him, but you can see His creation, His love, His plan, by the word of God, and by Christ coming to set us free, by going on the cross. I am so grateful to God, and I long to love Him, more and more.
We grow, daily, from moment to moment, as Christians. Christ said He was the vine, and we are the branches, when we seek Him, we grow. We may not all be in the same place, but we grow. But we have to remember, His word, is a light unto our path, a lamp unto our feet.
One does not have to feel alone, or vague, or without, for that matter. If you continually seek God. If you discipline yourself, to find His ways. Believing Him, trusting Him.
The other day, I just had this thought come to me, that I attribute to the Holy Spirit, and that is; “Trusting In God = Faith.” Trusting Him produces faith. But you have to go to the cross, with that trust. It may be a mustard seed size, it could be a mountain size faith, it can give you hope. You can have vision, and not be in darkness, as you trust God. But you have to just make the determination, to let go, and trust God. And let God.
Never, go to any other source but Him. This is so important. Depart from darkness dear one. The devils intention is to keep you in darkness, so you will miss the plan God has for you. But, as you walk in the light of Gods plan, no matter what may happen, you can have vision, you can have light.
Remember the story Christ gave, about the ten virgins, who had been waiting for the bride groom to return? (Read Matthew 25:1-13)
Five, had oil, and five did not. Five, stayed in darkness, and five had oil to find their way. The bridegroom returned for the virgins who had oil. This is Christ. He will return. Will He find you in darkness, or in His light? With your lamp, your spirit, filled with oil? Reading Gods truth, His word, and praying, as you seek Him, is symbolic, to having oil. To see, to have vision.
You do not have to stay in darkness dear one. You can have vision, for your future. Either way, whatever happens, you will have Christ, and that is the most comforting, reassuring, reliable source, for now, and for eternity.
Praying this inspires you.
Just my thoughts, with love in Christ,
A Prayer of Hope…..
Father, how I pray, as your servant, to bring light, to a dark world. To show people, the light. To show them you. To inspire people to think of you, and what your word says, and so it will go well with them, and yes, myself. Lord, deliver us, and help us. We walk in this world, with only a few keys in life, to get us through. But those keys, your word, your truth, shines as a lamp truly onto our feet, and guides us. Then we can have authority. Then we can have the ability, to see, by what your word says. Lord you are the way, the truth, and life. I hope this inspires today. I hope it brings someone out of darkness, to live, life abundantly. Lord, I just know, I want to search the deeper things of who you are, and bring life, and light to the surface of who I am, but so others, can know you. So their lives can change, and the glory, will all go to you my Lord. Oh heavenly father, thank you for bringing me out of the darkness. For I was there. Without a clue, until I searched for you, but I will keep on. I will keep on praying, and seeking you. All my life. In Jesus name. Amen
