Usually by the end of the year I kind of have a feeling about what may be transpiring in the next year. This year I did not. It is in the second week of the year and I am just now seeing some of it. I had determined that I was going to commune with God much more this year because I know I am weak right now in my relationship with Him and I did that by turning off the TV more and listening to more Praise and Worship music, which stirs my spirit, and beginning a new online Bible class. I sure have missed that.
The last several years I have allowed myself to get mired down in the pit again because of frustrations with my health and relationships. Have you ever said, “God, I thought I would be so much further by now. Why do I keep falling in the same pits? What am I doing wrong?” But when I look back I don’t remember hearing an answer either from myself or God. God “can” get quiet at times but don’t doubt that He is always at work. Many of us have situations that we have been praying about for many years and it seemed at times things were going to change for the better but then we find ourself right back at the same point dealing with the same thing again. How many times do we have to go around the mountain.
As I cried out to God for answers to a certain situation this AM I said, “God, I need divine intervention in this–please help.” After sitting down quietly and making a clear decision about my circumstances I heard in my spirit these words, “Your decision is divine intervention.” Wow! As I thought about it I could see how it could be true Through reading His word and recalling what He has shown us and communing with Him more He will show us how to make decisions that are from Him and not us. Of course the decisions have to be lived in our lives from that day and I pray that I will have the strength I need to carry out His desires but He did say He would never leave us nor forsake us didn’t He?
