As Christians we all want answers. We are supposed to turn to God in every aspect of our lives. I'm learning in our Bible Study class that God even wants to be involved in our food choices *shocker to me* but that's a whole different topic of conversation...
We are supposed to ask/pray continually. Some of us fast, some meditate, sometimes we lay face down in our secret place begging and crying out to God for the answers we so desperatley seek at any given time.
I'm the cryer. I cry, I beg I lay down on my bedroom floor sobbing to The Father for answers to all of life's difficult situations. When He told me to quit my job it was a Sunday. I had Monday off and there I was sobbing on my bedroom floor "God if this is You please just give me something, some type of word SOMETHING to help me." Well the fact is He did, He did every day for 2 months...it just wasn't what I wanted to hear. The truth is I had hoped He would change His mind. He didn't, and by that Monday afternoon He had heard so many of my thoughts towards Him and so many prayers I'm sure He was sitting up there shaking His head at me.
He always answers prayer. Maybe you needed to hear that today. He ALWAYS answers prayer. When we honestly whole-heartedly seek His guidance He is there and so is His answer. Just be ready for the answer that waits for you.
I've been at home for a week now, waiting for more answers. I was thinking about fasting...that didn't happen, at least not yet ;-). I don't think I'm going to have to fast though. The answers are stairing me in the face, it's just not what I want to hear. I do that a lot you see, He will give me the answers but if they aren't what I want I will keep praying and praying and begging for one more confirmation, one more word. Sometimes the answers are right infront of us, it doesn't matter if it's what we want or not, it's what God wants and His oppinion is the only one that matters, and you know when He's in the plans it's gonna be great for you despite fear or worry.
