Wouldn't you agree that all the big stuff and most of the little stuff require a decision?
Just the ordinary functions of life involve decisions. The animal kingdom is compelled to obey His command. We call it instinct. Birds fly north or south - wherever He wants them. The fish swim as He has ordained. The forest animals and all others enter into a world where they already know what to do and where to do it.
You are different. You have choice. You don't have to obey. You have the ability to choose and to make the wiser choice.
Chances are, you have decided to receive Him as Savior. That means you have living within you the Indwelling Holy Spirit. So, you are not left without supernatural guidance.
Remember Abraham? Just like you and me. he knew what God had said, but had to rush in and do it Himself. You think there will be pre-millennium peace in the middle-east? Not a chance. That conflict is between the sons of Ishmael and the sons of Isaac.
So then, believers, we [who are born again—reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose] are not children of a slave woman [the natural], but of the free woman [the supernatural].
What is one of the hardest things in life?
I have a problem - a big one. And I want it fixed right now because it is not right, hurts and causes me anxiety. So, my flesh screams and kicks to fix it now. This is especially crippling when it comes to finances and child problems.
Is He aware?
Does He care?
What are the Promises about this?
Is He real enough to me that I can tell Him I give it to Him?
Can He be trusted?
Can I think of a time when He has been late?
Should little worm's-eye-view me rush in and do the best fix?
Of course there are times when something has to be done. If you are a praying Soldier, you will talk to him about it and then you will take one step in faith and then another. Something may open, but He is able to lead. He is able to assure you, and most importantly, when you think this can't be fixed, He always reminds you that He is available.
Is anything too hard for Him? Really. Is it? Why is prayer often a last resort?
Soldier of The Cross, you made the choice to be His.
You told Him He could wholly have you.
You told Him He could have His way with this situation, and you've told him many times. You may need to tell Him again and again.
You must make the conscious affirmative decision to let Him lead you into a faith-walk. It is the only way you will ever walk on the water. It is the only way you will ever know Him. There is no Light anywhere else. No Life.
Memorize a verse today - the Holy Spirit will speak to you though it.
Tell Him you make this choice - to be changed. To be like Him.
Tell him aloud. Today.
