What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do
When You Don't Know What To Do
Trouble Don't Last Always
Someone ask a question what do you do when you don't know what to do? That is a million dollar question as there is about a million possiblitites. But isn't it funny how when you don't know what to do the mind goes blank for awhile and then start back up with all the wrong answers, well for the most part they are. If you come up with the right answer then this hub isn't for you. But for those of you out there that can relate to what I said about the mind goes blank and when it starts up again the wrong answers come. Wrong because we try them and things still aren't right! However, the answer to the question at hand that I've discovered is somewhat like the saying STOP, DROP, and ROLL. STOP = stop thinking of things to do, clear your mind as much as possible and then begin thinking about God, our Heavenly Father. Remember that He has all power, all wisdom and knowledge and understanding. Most importantly, He loves you with an everlasting love and its full of grace and mercy. He wants you to cast your cares upon Him because He cares for you. You got to believe that. And know that it's about God's will for your life not your will for your life. You have to go to God with that being first and farmost on your mind. God, not my will but thine be done. Half the battle is won then you know God's will. His word is his will for us and when you know the word; you know God's will.
Now you should be ready to DROP=If you come to Him in prayer and faith believing what I just said and standing on a scripture to prove it, God will remain faithful to His word and will work out whatever it is you're confused about and will give direction. You must be willing to take the directions God gives. I remember a circular song that said, "it may not be what you want but baby He's the one you need!" Just a little humor but true. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. That's scripture and you can stand on it. Another one says, All things works together for good to them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Remember it's His purpose. We were created for His PURPOSE; not our own. Say the scriptures over and over out loud and let them sink deep down into your spirit. Take comfort in them, trust in them, and God seeing your faith will reward you. Even if doubt is present, ask God to forgive the doubt and move it and keep saying the scriptures over and over out loud. Spoken words have power! Hear yourself saying them and wait on God for the answer.
Next, Roll=That's the hardest part, waiting on God. But I declare if you do, you'll be saved from whatever trouble there be. Flesh which is a way of thinking and not our body. Flesh/thoughts will push us to act before we hear from God. So you have to be careful and patient to wait on God. If you jump time, you'll miss your blessing, deliverance, healing, purpose,and money etc..Find someone strong in faith and talk to them, pray with them and stay close to them until you get your answer from God. That's what I do and it works! A praise song we use to sing comes to mind that goes like this, "you can't hurry God, oh no, you just gotta wait. You gotta trust Him and give Him time no matter how long it takes. He's God and you can't hurry; He'll be there don't you worry; He may not come when you want Him but He's on time! K.I.S.S. Keeping It Sweet and Simple.
