Receiving Direction Without Doubt

StopAndPrayTV

Psalm 25:8-9

God wants us to make right decisions, which means choices that align with His will. He has promised to give us instruction and direction so we’ll know how to proceed (Psalm 32:8).

One way to discover the Lord’s will is by following the pattern we looked at yesterday. First, make sure you have a clean heart, clear mind, surrendered will, and patient spirit. Then, add these steps: praying persistently, trusting God’s promises, and receiving His peace.

Although we all want quick answers from the Lord, Scripture tells us to pray tirelessly, without giving up.

StopAndPrayTV

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  Proverbs 9:10

What image does the word skillful call to mind? It could suggest a talented musician, a gifted teacher, a patient craftsman, a championship athlete, or a savvy financial expert. A skilled person is one who knows how to navigate through a challenging task and produce a rare result: success! To expand the idea of skillful, consider these synonyms: expert, accomplished, masterly, talented, adept, competent, and capable.

In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for “wisdom” (hokmah) is the same word translated as “skill” in many contexts—craftsmen, shrewdness, animals that prepare homes and gather food, a ship’s captain, and a maker of idols. Therefore, a wise person is one who is skilled in living life according to God’s principles. A wise person is one who navigates his or…
