Will God answer my prayers and show me what to do?

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


What is the right path for me?

Is it reasonable for Christians to expect God to show us what to do?

Yes, the Bible is clear that God provides leadership and direction to His people.

1. Expect God to honor the promises in His written word. See verses below.

2. From an obedient heart, claim these promises in your own life. See verses below.

3. Expect God to answer your prayers for guidance. Praying for rain and then not carrying your umbrella is a silly way to pray. Believing prayer based on the promises of God gets results.

4. When God provides guidance obey Him and do what He shows you to do.

5. Guidance may come through circumstances, one door closing and another door opening, a job offer or transfer to another area, an opportunity disguised as a duty like taking care of an aging relative, a defeat or setback which prompts you to change course or let go of something that wasn't working very well in your life anyway, etc.

the life of Jim elliot was sacrafice a sacrafice I came to know and Love. Jesus called me at 6am one morning and told me to sell all that I owned . searching my Heart revealed to me that Jesus is alive and that voice i will always carry in my soul. It has taken me as far away as Africa to the villages and to the hosp to heal a man who was dying of Aids. God has no favorites only His Deep Deep love. the man was instantly healed and Jesus was the healer. Thanks for you web it deeply inspired me. and encouraged me. Sometime I feel discouraged tired and sick . but it is what it is and Jesus is the same Yesterday today and forever. His message is Simply LOVE. God is so amazing.

Our job is to obey God - when we do that, we are privileged to see miracles and rejoice in His goodness.
