There are days I seem to constantly have thoughts and questions mulling about in my mind. If I were to attempt to paint a picture of what this feels like, it might appear like an intersection with eight options.

The options can lie before me adding to the turmoil already existing in my head. The questions are many, and the answers aren’t quite clear yet.

Age brings a small amount of wisdom, probably learned from experience. Stay quiet and say nothing until there is clarity and calmness of mind. Jumping the gun only serves to add to the mix of emotions and most often, not in the healthiest of ways.

It’s best to pause, give the situation some time. Isaiah brings a good reminder:

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21, NASB)

Isaiah assures me of three things:

  1. Instruction. God will instruct His people. He will tell us Himself, and we will know it is Him speaking into our circumstances.
  2. Proximity. God will no longer be distant. He will be right behind us. We will not be navigating nor walking through this life alone.
  3. Guidance. God will actively be guiding. He will give clear directions, each day, to guide us throughout our lives.

God guides His people today through His Holy Spirit, Who resides within us:

But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.” (John 16:13, NASB)

God has not left us to figure life out on our own. He has given us His Word and His Spirit to engage with us, providing guidance along the way.

May we not harden our hearts to hear His voice when He speaks to us. May we respond to Him, obeying as He asks and leads.

All that we need is to be with Him,and in the quiet we can hear His voice.
We need to listen to the Voice within.
