Are you Waiting?

Judges 23:25:

This verse is the last verse in the book of Judges. The people of Israel continue to do want is right in their own eyes. Verse 25 specifically says: “ In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes”. Judges 23:25. NLT. Everyone was only focusing on themselves. Sometimes, the people of Israel have no common sense. Sometimes we and I do not either. God is not common as He is our creator. I know I do not aways have any sense. I have to forget common sense. God responds in His way and timing and neither of them amount to human common sense. God’s answers in the past include adoption, cancer and particularly Parkinson’s. I would not have chosen those parts of my life. But He has been working through our lives and has never failed or forsaken us. At times I have questioned HIs direction. I also may do one of the hardest guidance He gives us. To wait for His timing with wait being the hardest. All of His answers have taken some time. When Patti and I started to pray for His wisdom, timing and guidance, wee waited 2 years before we downsized our home, almost 1 year asking Him for direction with my Parkinson’s surgery and even with improvements, my future direction with this disease will always be on my prayer list. What item has been on your prayer list for a while? Is His answer no or to continue to wait? I love drumming and always thought I would drum forever in a worship band. But Parkinson’s changed this for me and God has opened other doors.

Is He changing your direction or are you waiting for your answer?

How can you or should you pray differently?
