How can you know God’s will and plan for you? Be still. Wait. Listen. Watch to see what He will do. This has always worked better for me than rushing into situations with my own ideas.
Psalm 46:10 tells us what to do when you’re not sure where we fit in God’s action plan. The psalm says, “Cease striving and know that I am God.” Yep. Be still and know it ourselves. Don’t default into our past. Don’t jump the gun for our future. Just behold and know. Instructions will come when the time is right. — Beth Moore [Portraits of Devotion, pg. 311]
Don’t make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don’t make it the center of your life. — Psalm 62:10 [NLT]
God may well give you an assignment that takes you outside your experience or comfort level. Remember — you will know what His will is through your relationship with God. Don’t bypass the relationship. — Henry Blackaby [How Great is Our God, 6/30; from Experiencing God]
