Not My Will, But Thine
“…but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” Romans 8:5
Once transformed by the Holy Spirit, we are no longer driven by fear. I believe this is replaced with a spirit of discernment. When God wants my attention, he’s not subtle. When a thought or idea comes to mind that I quickly dismiss or withdraw from, yet lingers in my thoughts, it is usually God trying to tell me something. Sometimes it’s small, sometimes it’s huge and sometimes it just seems odd. He doesn’t always expect me to act but he does want me to be obedient and turn it over to him instead of just ignoring him.
So, here I am again. I’m facing a decision that I never dreamed I’d have to make. And though fear tries to creep in and guide me, He’s prepared me to set that fear aside and seek His will through prayer and Biblical consultation. I don’t know where it will take me, but I trust that the path He chooses for me will be the right one.
