We’ve all probable heard the words or even said the words “God told me too” do this or that or believe this or that. I’ve heard them and I’ve said them.
I don’t mean that you hear God in an audible voice that echos down from heaven calling your name. I mean that certainty that you feel inside, that intense in-depth belief that God indeed did speak to your heart. Is that always God? Did God really tell you to start that ministry, take that job, marry that guy/girl, home-school your children, that you were going to have another baby? I have to admit I have had many moments when I thought for certain that I head heard the Lord speak to my heart…but I haven’t always been right.
What If Your WRONG??
So if we’re not always right, does this mean we shouldn’t follow those promptings that we feel, what if we’re wrong? SO WHAT! Be wrong.
The important thing is that you follow your heart. We are all in this journey learning and growing and against what some may believe where you are in your walk with the Lord, the maturity level of your life, your experiences and many other things impact what we hear and what we believe. It also affects how we interpret what we feel God speaking. So maybe I wasn’t wrong that I heard Him, maybe I just misunderstood the meaning or the timing.
You know what though – it doesn’t really matter. It’s all about the journey. Learning, loving, growing and becoming who God created you to be.
Seize The Moment!
All we can really do is act upon what’s in our heart knowing that God IS big enough to bring His will in our lives to pass. If we’ve been wrong in the past it doesn’t mean we should stop following and acting on the promptings and impressions He places there today. We can only be as certain as we can be -for where we are in that moment – but we still have to seize the moment!
The Lord spoke to my heart 13 years ago about how I would impact believers and help them grow in their revelation of God’s love. I have seen some of it come to pass, some of it I haven’t. That doesn’t mean I should stop moving forward though. I have learned and grown so much as a person and as a believer that I realize this journey is taking me to the places God spoke to me about. It’s not the way I envisioned it all unfolding, it’s better.
Have faith that is just BIG enough to start following God, being as certain as you can be that He is leading. He’ll take care of the rest. He just needs you to show up.
Everyone struggles with doubts and fears – many of which come from past experiences and mistakes – but don’t let them stop you.
God is so much BIGGER than your hearing. Have faith in HIM – not in your own abilities to get it right – or wrong for that matter.
