An Emotional Nightmare

roller_coasterI am a pretty consistent person in my beliefs. Once God has a revealed a thing to me and confirmed it over and over, I don’t change like the wind. Even when I take a detour, it’s a God sanctioned one.

But there is NOTHING worse than dealing with someone who changes like the wind. But I understand what’s at the root of it is uncertainty. But you would think if you are unsure, you would go to God and ask him. But everyone has not matured to that level.

I didn’t just arrive at this place. I’m not boasting, but just like a smart businessman hones his craft, that same effort must be given in developing the ability to hear the voice of God. And also, things must be given up too.

I remember years ago, my friends mother was newly saved and no one had to tell her, but she just knew she had to give up her wine. Now I know a lot of Christians feel it’s okay to drink wine. But I will tell you this. If you want to hear the voice of God accurately and not walk in constant confusion and uncertainty, you will have to give up something.

This modern-day Christianity, doesn’t want to sacrifice anything for God. But guess what? No sacrifice and you stay in shallow waters.

Well I’m supposed to be talking about an emotional nightmare. Well there is nothing worse than being on a rollercoaster ride with someone who changes their mind five times in the course of a day. I will tell you this. I’m getting off this ride, until further notice…but then again, the month of March is almost here and God said some things are going to change.

James 1:5-7

New International Version (NIV)

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

God’s Wisdom

stop-signI am learning that we have to obey God even in the small things. I’ve had too many times when I missed God and the best training is to obey, even when you don’t understand.

I have been without internet for a while now, but I finally had some money set aside to sign up with a new company. I was going to sign up with was 4g internet, good price and so I was all set to sign up, but for some reason, I just felt hesitant. Finally I googled the company and to my shock there were TONS of negative reviews on the company. That gave me pause, but after calling the company and talking to a young man, he explained some things and I felt better about signing up.

I won’t go into everything that happened after that, but every time I tried to sign up, I was blocked for various reasons. Then the final time that I attempted to sign up, there was a great promotion going on and the next day, when I was actually going to do it, the promotion was gone. Well I know a stop sign when I see one.

Well, a few days later, my cell phone company offered a hotspot for only 10 additional dollars and so I was ecstatic about that because it will be a great savings and I believe for now, it serves the purpose.

This may not seem that profound, but to me, I listened to a stop sign, waited and made a smart move.

For a while now God has been stopping me from making a move. Now I see clearly the wisdom of it. RIght now, it’s not something I am even considering because I am listening to God. And this evening something happened YET AGAIN, that made me so grateful I did not move.

I’ve grown weary of some foolishness and me seeing a snake frozen on my computer screen let’s me know that no matter what, you’d better listen to GOD’S WISDOM! THANK YOU JESUS!
