Passionate Pursuit {day 25}: Getting Answers


We whisper, whimper, cry or scream these words from time to time. Exasperated, discouraged, afraid, fretting, worn down, or stressed out.

IMG_0652We’re not supposed to have all the answers – or even a lot of the them.
Every answer we need, God has.

We’re not gonna know the best thing to do – in lots of circumstances.
God leads… and only asks that we follow.

Perfect words don’t reside on our lips for our countless conversations.
God knows every thought of every person before the first syllable is uttered.

Events will occur that we can’t anticipate.
God is never surprised.

Still, it’s easy for me to step back in to a familiar groove of rehashing or fretting over something. Wasting hours and losing sleep. Applying prayer like an ingredient to get what I want – an answer. Direction for my circumstance. A yes or no.

IMG_0685Often God’s answer is Himself. And we don’t know what to do with this.
He presents Himself. Already knowing the degree to which we know Him, He invites us to engage, abide and know Him more. This is most important to Him.
Worship. Praise. Thanks. Repentance. Surrender.
It’s hard to do because we want concrete answers, results, obvious forward movement.
He wants our heart – and to tend it. Pouring in love, comfort, healing and wisdom.

“Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! 
You have said, “Seek my face.”
My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.” (Psalm 27.7-8)
