Go to God

God Bless
Go to God for everything in every circumstance...

How can you know what God wants?

You ask Him.

Ask Him to give you peace when you have made a decision, if that is His will. Ask Him to NOT give peace, but rather discontent, if your decision was not the right choice.

Ask Him for guidance, and yes, signs. You can feel peace or be distraught. Is this not a sign? Yes, it IS a sign and too few of us take notice.

Spurgeon's commentary and plea to us ...

“God, even our own God.”
- Psa_67:6

It is strange how little use we make of the spiritual blessings which God gives us, but it is stranger still how little use we make of God himself. Though he is “our own God,” we apply ourselves but little to him, and ask but little of him.

How seldom do we ask counsel at the hands of the Lord!

How often do we go about our business, without seeking his guidance! In our troubles how constantly do we strive to bear our burdens ourselves, instead of casting them upon the Lord, that he may sustain us! This is not because we may not, for the Lord seems to say, “I am thine, soul, come and make use of me as thou wilt; thou mayst freely come to my store, and the oftener the more welcome.”

It is our own fault if we make not free with the riches of our God. Then, since thou hast such a friend, and he invites thee, draw from him daily. Never want whilst thou hast a God to go to; never fear or faint whilst thou hast God to help thee; go to thy treasure and take whatever thou needest-there is all that thou canst want.

Learn the divine skill of making God all things to thee. He can supply thee with all, or, better still, he can be to thee instead of all. Let me urge thee, then, to make use of thy God. Make use of him in prayer. Go to him often, because he is thy God.

O, wilt thou fail to use so great a privilege? Fly to him, tell him all thy wants.

Use him constantly by faith at all times. If some dark providence has beclouded thee, use thy God as a “sun;” if some strong enemy has beset thee, find in Jehovah a “shield,” for he is a sun and shield to his people.

If thou hast lost thy way in the mazes of life, use him as a “guide,” for he will direct thee.

Whatever thou art, and wherever thou art, remember God is just what thou wantest, and just where thou wantest, and that he can do all thou wantest.

I'm working on my bible study lesson for tomorrow. We're working our way through Genesis and we're on Chapter 24. In this passage Abraham's servant asks God for a sign when searching for Rachel.

My question to the class is if we should ask God for a sign. I don't think we want our prayer life to be one of trying to figure out God by asking him to confirm his will based on a street light turning red or green.

However, I like your take take that feelings of peace or distraught can be a sign from God. And in reality,isn't that what Abraham's servant was really after?

Thanks for this post. It will help with my lesson.
