Lately, my husband and I have been seeking the will of God in our lives on a fierce level. We want to be more active in full-time ministry, so have been asking God to open doors for us in regards to this.
We have a opportuity to do so, but want to make sure it is God speaking to us, and not our own hearts. Remember what happened to Jonah when he went his own way? You may not be swallowed by a whale, but there are many other things in this world that will swallow you up if you don’t heed God’s call on your life. So, we have been in earnest prayer and have a decision to make.
We both have been praying for God to give us confirmation…and He has!
Here are the verses we have been shown-out of the blue, I might add. Well…they were out of our ‘blue’…but God reveled them to us so that we would be sure He was in it 🙂
Take a look….
Matthew 16:19 – “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
Isaiah 55:2 – Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will enjoy the best food of all….
Jeremiah 31:14 – And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, said the Lord.
Philippians 2:13 – For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.
2 Timothy 4:18 – The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I also was shown this poem….
“My way in life that Thou shalt choose,
I know will be the best
And through the trust I have in Thee,
My heart will find it’s rest!” – UNKNOWN
What God wants in your life is what is best for you! Trust Him! Heed His call and be satisfied!
