Well well well,
Here i am again leaving such big gaps in between my posts, this is something i feel challenged on and will make more of an effort to share my journey and all the things God is speaking to me about.
So this blog post has been unexpected i felt i had one to share but nope God spoke so here i am.
I want to lay some foundation into this post because i feel it is essential for you to really hear Gods heart in all of this. So since October last year i have had this battle with God, loosing sight of who i am and who he is. It has become less and less that i have spent time with him but yet feeling like he is not there. While i was praying the other day God spoke, so this is really what i wanted to share with you all so i really hope this challenges you like it has me and that it brings clarity to your walk with God.
So as i said i was praying the other day into direction and i felt God so clearly speak to me about directions. God gave me a vision and i was in the car trying to find my way to a new destination but i was lost and i could not hear the sat nav i could not read the map. I was lost!
Now people who know me would not be surprised by this vision and would probably say it was just another day of me driving, because if i am honest directions are not my strong point but God spoke to me about spiritually being lost?
Are you in a season of feeling spiritually lost?
“The Heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16 v 9
How many times in our walk with God do we feel lost? I know i have often felt that way but what God was speaking to me about was do we sometimes cause the feeling of being lost? Do we sometimes stop looking at the map and turn the volume off the sat nav?
It is like our walk with God if we want to hear God speak and learn new ways to go then we need to turn the volume up and get stuck into his word. I know this may sound simple to some but i believe this is an area where at times we all struggle. Learning to let God lead sounds easy but are we making steps in our day for this to happen? I was in the car recently and decided to take a different route so i plugged in the sat nav turned the volume off and tried to navigate my way home only to find by distraction of my children i had missed the turning, Why? Because i was not listening because i was caught up in the noise from the back seats. Do not allow distractions to stop God leading!
For God to be able to lead us we need to hear and see. That is why we are encouraged to read Gods word and why we are encouraged to tune our ear to him. God wants to direct us he wants to lead us into something new but we have to spend time seeking direction. I really want to encourage you to spend time in his word allow it wash over you in a new way, allow scripture to become directions and keep the volume up. Through being in the word God will direct he will speak and he will take us on many journeys some planned and some not.
I really pray that if this is something you are going through that God will wash over you a fresh. I pray you will begin to tune into his word and turn the volume up to his voice. I pray in the busyness of life that we remain on the road where God is leading us.
Have a blessed day,
