Hello hello podcast family.
Today I have a quick message for you in we’re going to talk about clear direction. The first thing that I want to say is that for us to be open to listen to God and to listen to what the Holy Spirit is telling us we must trust and believe that He is good. I find as I talk to people, that they are always afraid to trust God like He’s going to make something bad happen to them. And the truth is that God is good and His plans are way better for us than our plans.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Romans 8:28 “God works all things good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose”. God has a purpose for you, and He has a good plan, a better plan than you or I could ever have. Because He sees the big picture. He creates everything. And we have a limited view of the circumstances that are around us. He sees everyone around you and around me and He can make the best plans that we cannot even imagine.
So the first step to be able to listen is to trust that He is good and that His plans are good. Once we understand this, and once we believe this in our heart, we are open to start listening to what the Holy Spirit’s telling us and we have courage to take the steps because most of the times what the Holy Spirit is telling us to do is to get out of our comfort zone. So we need to have courage to take this step to do what he is saying.
I used to make beautiful plans for my life and just plan everything out like a beautiful dollhouse. And especially for my business, I would say I’m going to do this and that and this is going to be the result because this is what so and so did on their business and worked for them so it’s going to work for me as well. And then when I start to do those things, it would never happen the way I want to and I would catch myself praying that God would help me do something that I didn’t even invite him to participate in this strategy to begin with, and that I start being convicted and in a start to understand that if I want God to lead me to the abundant life that He has for me and I’m not only talking about like abundant life on finances, or what the world consider abundant life, I’m talking about like full complete abundance of joy and love, and of course, resources because we need resources to live but the abundant life that God has for us is so much bigger than housing and car or what the world consider abundance, right?!
So I so after start being convicted by this, I start inviting God to make the decisions for me. I see it sometimes like on social media people saying, God’s my CEO, and that’s true. Like I invite him to show me what is his plan. And that made a huge, huge difference in my life because that showed that I am open to hear what the Holy Spirit says in a lot of times, it takes longer. It’s not like hey, Yes, God and two minutes later, he tells me, I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes he does. Sometimes it’s so fast. That is scary. But sometimes I have to sit down and wait and wait for days and weeks and pray. Over and over and over about the same thing.
But I know that this is a hard prayer to do. So I want to help you guys. I want to pray over you guys that are listening to this right now. And you can write down this prayer you can save this podcast episode and come back to when you need to pray this prayer for yourself. And just remind yourself that God is good that God’s in control that God sees things that you don’t see that I don’t see. God knows what is going to happen tomorrow and we don’t know. And it may be his direction directing you to something that sounds crazy right now something that sounds like it does not make sense. But he knows what is going to happen tomorrow. He knows what you need. So we need to listen and we need to trust that his plans are better than our plans.
So I told you this would be short. I’m going to go ahead and pray over you right now that are listening to this. And I am going to let you go just soak this prayer, soak this words and ask God to speak to you and reveal to you what his plans for you are because it’s completely different than his plans for me his plans for your neighbor, for your friend for your brother and sister. He has a different plan for each one of us. So I hope this helps you and I’m going to go ahead and pray.
Father, thank you for this beautiful day. Thank you for this time that you give us this day. Father give us our daily assignment. Father, I pray that every person that is under the sound of my voice be blessed by you Lord, and I pray that you give them clear vision, clear direction, clear instructions, what do you have for them? What do you have for their life and what do you have for their purpose? Lord, we love you so much. And we pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
