Day 9 - May 15, 2012

I want to walk in step with God. I want to have His Holy Spirit and the Word of God direct every move I make. I want to pray in every waking moment that “Thy will be done”. I want to be yoked to Jesus and have my movements mimic His. I want every decision to be His decision and every step to be synchronized in step with the creator of the universe. Who am I kidding?

I am so not perfect. When I am listening to God, I don't always hear with perfect clarity. It would be foolhardy to think that I could ever know exactly what God wanted me to do with 100% accuracy. I cannot trust my own emotions. I cannot always trust my own logic. Sometimes I follow my gut and sometimes I follow my head. And many, many times I seek counsel from others who are much smarter and wiser than me.

I am envious of people who are 100% sure of God’s will. Oral Roberts once said that a 900 foot Jesus appeared to him and commanded Him to build the City of Faith Medical Research Center. I am so jealous! I can’t tell you how many times I wish God would appear to me and tell me what to do. But for whatever reason He hasn’t. He simply asks me to read, pray, seek counsel, and take my best shot.

The good news is that He works diligently in spite of my imperfections. He doesn’t expect me to get it right all the time. I think He is more pleased when I pray for guidance and get it wrong than if I don’t pray but somehow get it right.

Blessings,

Pastor David
