September 2023 Week 2
"A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."
WHERE IS YOUR HEART?
Have you ever felt like you were constantly being tested and you weren't passing the tests? For me personally, I don't know if God is trying to teach me that there is more than one way of doing things, showing me where I'm still weak, if there's something God wants me to do that I'm just not doing, or if I'm actually just winging it and my decisions are about to prolong my journey like the children of Israel wandering in the wilderness. I sometimes wish I had the spirit of move and then figure it out but I'm more like Ludacris, "God, when you move, I move, just like that." The problem is God's time is not our time and when you have deadlines and due dates, it's hard to wait until you feel that you have clear instruction from God. I am a very analytical person (I have tried to stop claiming indecisiveness...you know, power of the tongue) and it takes me some time to make certain life decisions. It's not because I don't want to quickly make decisions, but more so because I know what it feels like to feel as though I didn't make the best decision. If you're like me and you're finding it difficult to make decisions or maybe your issue is that you're finding it hard to follow the spirit over your flesh in this season, I want you to encourage you to focus on our heart's posture this week & beyond rather than the fear of making the wrong decision. When your mind is clouded and overwhelmed, search your heart. Is your motivation to serve God, and to love others & yourself in a manner that honors God? In this we can be reassured that God will be with us every step of the way; even if that means dealing with some tough situations as a result of our decision.
