There are moments when we feel as if our life is at a standstill and we
don't know what direction we should take next. In these moments of doubt
we should not become anxious or worry about our next steps, but rather come
confidently before the Lord asking for His divine intervention. The Lord
wishes for our best interest at all times and has promised that He would
lead us and direct us onto the best path as long as we stay focused on Him.
It is only when we take our eyes off of the Lord and focus on the trials
before us that we become discouraged, disillusioned and disheartened.
Knowing that we have the Lord who created all things by our side and ready
to help us, we should feel encouraged about our future. We should have a
quiet knowing in our hearts that all will be well no matter how much doubt
has tried to convince us otherwise. Be encouraged to seek the Lord in
prayer when you need direction in your life. Jesus said whatsoever you
ask in My Name in faith believing, you shall have it. Simply believe that
you will receive your answer because the Lord will be faithful to hear and
answer your heartfelt prayer. (Isaiah 26:3-4) (John 14:13-14) (James 1:5-8)
I hope this message encourages your heart to trust in the Lord and know
that He has your best interest in mind. When feelings of doubt come your
way, trust the voice of encouragement within you and know that all will be well.
LISTENING TO YOUR HEART
I sometimes wish I had a road map for living.
If only someone would occasionally show me a way to go, a direction to
take, it seems things could be easier. Have you ever thought like that?
But it doesn't take me long to remember that others probably feel as
confused as I do.
Passengers on a regular flight from Detroit to Tri-City Airport (which is
situated between the Michigan cities of Saginaw, Bay City and Midland),
must have felt a little more than confused during a flight attendant's
greeting. Obviously not familiar with the area, she welcomed everyone
warmly and stated that the destination would be Midland. A few concerned
passengers alerted her to the mistake, so she quickly corrected herself by
saying they were headed to Tri-City and Bay City.
Chuckles rippled along the aisle as she bravely tried again. This time she
informed passengers that their destination was Saginaw. Now laughter broke out.
At that point, an authoritative voice came over the intercom and rescued
her. “I'm your pilot, folks,” he said, “don't worry -- I know where
It's nice when someone knows the way. But does anyone know the way YOU
should be going? The way you should go in your life?
The truth is -- we really can't depend on others for the most important
answers about living our lives. People can help, but nobody can truly
decide what is best for us; nobody else can steer us along that individual
path that we should take.
But the good news is this: we will eventually find the way ourselves. And
I believe we'll find it best by listening. Listening to our hearts;
listening to an inner voice.
I've learned that if I listen well, I will discover that the solution I
need is usually there, hiding within. It may be irritatingly well hidden,
but it is there nevertheless.
Perhaps you feel a bit lost. Most of us do at times. And if so, don't
worry. This may be a perfect time to listen. Listen to that quiet voice
within. And while you listen, remember this -- your inner pilot knows
where you're going.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Isaiah 26:3-4 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect; peace, whose mind is stayed
on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for
in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.”
Romans 8:16-18 “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we
are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and
joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be
also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present
time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed
Psalm 23:1-4 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to
lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He
restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His
name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they
Philippians 4:8-9 “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if
there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen
in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
