Going Back?

So I’ve been talking about this move back to New York, and I knew that the house I used to live in was for sale. So I decided to do a search on Zillow and was shocked to find out it finally sold! I just assumed it would still be on the market. So that changes some of what I see. Of course everything I shared was what I was desiring by faith and really wasn’t in the realm of possibility in the natural. But that was no problem for me.

Just because I was seeing this in no way means it’s God’s will. In this case, it had a lot to do with desire and lack of vision. But there was something comforting about thinking I could go back. But honestly, if you think about it, is God really calling us to go back? I was looking at the house on googlemaps and it just looks like I would be going backwards, not going forward. I’m sure God has something better.

Do I really want to go back? I felt like I did, but now a big part of what I saw for myself, appears to be gone. But anyway…let me stop rambling. I really need to get in the face of God and get a renewed vision for the future because now it seems I have none. Strange how a house being sold could change my direction. Well maybe.

Proverbs 29:18

King James Version (KJV)

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Proverbs 29:18

New International Version (NIV)

18 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.

  1. I don’t know you or your situation and I can’t pretend to be any wiser than you in your perceptions but there are somethings that I would like to say and ask that you take them to God and ask Him to confirm to you. But, it sounds to me like God closed that door in your walk. If that is the case than I would be thanking Him for it! I know how frustrating it is to want to see our purpose and promises unfolded in our lives and just be standing still. But making choices of our own accord in that time could set us farther back than we were before. I myself have been kind of antsy as of late and discontent with where I am and it is hard for me to sit still. Maybe it is just our season to wait in our faith and trust that God is preparing us for the next move. In any case whether a door is opening up to us or closing for us we know that God is working in our lives and looking at what He is doing and not at what He is not doing is all we have to look at and be grateful for! Keep pushing for His purpose 🙂
