What does your active life, prayer life, and thought life evidence – obedience or hatred? Test yourself with the truth.
“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgement.” John 7:24
It is a natural reaction to lean on your own experiences or seek out experiences of those close to you when you should be seeking the one who knows all things.
Seek him with a humble and patient attitude, trusting that his way is the right way – his timing is the right timing. Without your ideas of what’s right, but fully giving over all that it is that you are bringing to him.
The world has a multitude of ideas and “advice” on what is right and we are tempted to give in to those, but again, there is only one who is always right, God.
“So Jesus answered them, ‘My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.’” John 7:16
God has sent his word to us for our benefit. Don’t let your thoughts/experiences and this world persuade you into believing that the answers are anywhere other than there.
God’s word. God’s wisdom. God’s will. Not your word, wisdom, or will. Not the world’s word, wisdom, or will. Aligning all parts of life with Him is only possible by the daily discipline to spend time with him.
The author of life is speaking to you, you need only to listen.
