In all circumstances, the number one way to know God’s will for you is through communicating with Him. The more you spend time with God, the more effectively you will be able to hear and know His voice. When we tune in to His voice, we will be able to recognize when an opportunity is simply a distraction. Prayer is our reminder that God is in charge and that we submit to his lead. Pray specifically for wisdom, peace, strategy, and clarity before every major change. After all, if you pray, He will listen. Our part is to listen to His response.
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24)
Thank you for being the One who watches over my life. You don’t miss a detail and I praise you for caring about me and instructing me along my path. I ask that you speak clearly concerning your next move. Teach us, Lord, to know your voice and respond appropriately. Close every door that does not reflect your heart for me. Give me a willing heart to surrender every area that you are removing. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
