“Just pray about it, and see what God says about it.”
I tried and tried, desperate to hear from God; still I struggled to determine if my thoughts or ideas were my own or God’s.
For a long time, I have been waiting. Waiting for God to show up, thinking that the moment He arrived, my burden would be lifted, my problem would be solved. God has a way of teaching in any circumstances, and times of trouble are often the best settings.
Weight from God. I know what this is. I am a mule. How do you get a mule to move? You put something heavy on it. The mule will begin to move as the weight signals this reaction. So, God has put some weight on me, something in my heart and it’s making me move. I am moving, growing in faith, making improvements, moving my path so I can walk parallel with Jesus. After all, isn’t that the easiest way for someone to walk while holding your hand?
Line your walk up with Jesus, then you will no longer feel the heaviness God needed you to feel in order to get your attention.
“Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying this is the way, walk in it.” —ISAIAH 30:21
