I think that we could tell ourselves anything and believe that it was from God if we want it bad enough.
I wrestle with understanding the difference between my will and His. I’d like to believe that my heart desires the very things that God wants for me but I know that my selfish desires can creep in too.
As I pray over my future and the direction that I am feeling called, I know that I need to leave the eraser available for God to redirect.
Maybe God continues to speak and I am just finally learning to listen.
In order for me to hear Him speak, I have to be willing to obey when He does.
Oh how I long to be open to all that He is showing me. Speak Lord, for I am listening.
“Then the LORD came and stood and calledas at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, for Your servant is listening.””
