A Prayer for When You Really feel Unsure of God’s Main
 
By Christine Perry

“I’ll lead the blind by methods they haven’t recognized, alongside unfamiliar paths I’ll information them; I’ll flip the darkness into gentle earlier than them and make the tough locations easy. These are the issues I’ll do; I can’t forsake them.” – Isaiah 42:16 NKJV

As I write this, I’m preaching this fact to myself. Simply this week, I mentioned to a member of the family, “I do not know what the Lord is doing. I genuinely consider I’ve executed my finest to observe His main, however I don’t know what He needs, and I don’t know what I’m imagined to do.” 

Have you ever ever felt this manner? You are following the Lord, and He’ll lead you straight into the wilderness. As time passes, you start to really feel stripped, barren, and forgotten. The enterprise is failing, your youngsters are struggling, you’ll be able to’t have youngsters, you have been identified with most cancers, you simply misplaced your partner, you will have an ongoing sickness with no solutions, otherwise you’re single and ready for a partner. It is exhausting. Tears threaten to pour out. Bitterness is biting at your heels. Despair is crouching at your door, and discouragement is knocking on the window of your coronary heart.

Isaiah says that God will lead the blind (Israelites) in methods they don’t know. It’s God who’s guiding them. But, He promised to show the darkness into gentle and to make the tough locations easy. 

God’s methods should not our methods (Isaiah 55:8-9); we’re hardly ever, if ever, aware of His plans. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we stroll by religion, not by sight.” Once we are following the Lord, we observe by religion. And identical to on this verse, God typically leads us in methods we do not know. Why? As a result of He needs us to belief His character and in His Phrase. Psalm 119:105 says, “Your phrase is a lamp for my toes, a light-weight on my path.”  God by no means forsakes us. It might “really feel” like He has, however we’re by no means to let our feelings dictate the reality of God’s Phrase. He’s main, and He’s guiding; even when it looks like nothing is occurring on this season. The Lord is aware of the proper atmosphere for us to be in so as to develop. 

He’s worthy of our belief, even after we are in uncharted territory

Let’s pray:

Expensive Heavenly Father,
In Psalm 115:3, the Psalmist writes, “However our God is in heaven; He does no matter He pleases.” We all know that You’re in control of our lives and the course it’s heading. We’re asking that You’d assist us to belief You when the storm rages and the circumstances are grim. We ask that You be our anchor. We’d like You. Assist us to be nonetheless and know You’re God. You’re the identical God who led the Israelites with a fireplace by evening and a cloud by day and fed them for forty years. So immediately, we ask that You’d assist us to look to You for all of our wants and for course and knowledge with choices that should be made. 

God, Your Phrase says that You’re for us and never in opposition to us. You say that nothing can separate us from Your love. Your Phrase additionally says that You’ll lead us in paths of righteousness for Your identify’s sake and that You’ll information us with Your eye. Father, You say that your eyes vary all through the earth to strengthen these whose hearts are absolutely dedicated to You. Please assist us to be fully dedicated to you. We’re unworthy. We mess up continuously. We combat in opposition to You however I ask that You’d soften our hearts and make us attentive to You and what You wish to do in and thru us. We’re Yours. Assist us to belief you after we are unsure the place You’re main us. Amen!
