Go to God for help
“I want to do this…. But I don’t know!!! I want to do that…. But I don’t know!”
This has been me for the past few weeks. I have been going back and forth on things that I know in my heart that I need to be doing, but I find myself second guessing myself.
It almost seems that I do not have the faith in God that I say that I have.
Questioning my Life
It’s like I am questioning everything thing that he has been telling me to do in my life. Weather it because I am scared to do it, or it is just the fact that I do not think I know how to do it, I find myself in the same boat repeatedly.
It seems like every time I take two steps forward, I find myself taking five steps back. It’s like I am being repetitive. But I am learning with every passing day, that I am looking in the wrong place for the answers that I need out of life.
You may feel like I am being too honest with this blog, but I just want to help others and show that I am fighting the same fight that others may be fighting in their lives.
Now, as I have been trying figure out things in my life, I started to complain. It was not nothing too serious, but I was complaining, a lot. The one thing that I said I did not want to do. That is what I found myself doing.
I found something wrong in everything that I was trying to do for my life.
“I am not perfect!”
“How can I work for God? I do not feel like I am ready!”
I have so many “how am I going to do this and that” questions in my life I was getting frustrated. I started searching for the answers in the wrong places. I thought I could talk to my sister about it, and I thought I could talk to my husband about it, but I realized that they could not help me with what I was feeling.
Seeking God for Answers
True, they can give me advice on what they feel like I should be doing, and they can even give me scripture, but they cannot help me the way I needed to be helped. The kind of help I needed was a little deeper than just talking to them.
When I realized the help I needed was only going to be giving to me by God himself, I felt foolish.
I had been looking all over for someone to give me the answers that I was seeking, and it was in me the whole time.
See, in Matthew 6:33 it says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you” (KJV)
Even though my family very well could give me good advice, I needed to seek God on some things myself. God and answer the questions that I may have better than any man can. When I took a step back and I sought God on my own, he showed me what I needed to do and I felt better, because my father in heaven let me know what I needed to do.
Studying his Word
As Christians, sometimes we go to the wrong place to get the answers that we need for the questions that we have burning on the inside of us. Often, the answers are two places.
First in the word of God.
In 2 Timothy 2:15 it says to “Study to shew thyself approve unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
We must get into God’s word, because all of the answers that we need are in the Bible. God has giving us a great resource in the Bible for all of the things that we may be going through in life and how to handle every situation.
It is up to us to get in the word of God and study it so we will be able to use it in our life.
The second way is to go to God directly, as I stated earlier. We need to pray more and ask God how to handle the difficult things in our lives. When we have that relationship with God, we can go to him, and he will give us the answers that we need. Now some answers are some we may not want to hear, but God is a gracious God, and he will never steer us in the wrong direction.
Bottom line, God is who we need to go to when we have questions and need spiritual answers. He knows what we need when we need it. I pray that this blog helps you with your journey with God.
