Are you following God’s direction for your life, family, or path that you should go in your life at this time? Does God speak to men and give them direction?
I am glad you asked me this question today. Let’s take a look into the book that can not lie and is still the number #1 best seller of all times.
Man #1 – Joseph (the earthly father of Jesus) -This guy was known to listen to God’s messenger and move his family to safety so that their lives would be saved from death. [Read Matthew 2: 13 – 23 ] 13 Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Africa [Egypt], and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.’ 14Then Joseph* got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, 15and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfil what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, ‘Out of Egypt I have called my son.’
Man #2 – Adam – the first man created and whom God appointed to be the responsible head for his family. This does NOT mean that everything that happened in his family (wife, children etc.) was ‘the man’s’ fault but it does mean that it was his responsibility to come to God for direction, repentance or seek godly counsel from his spouse (helper). Adam did not take responsibility when asked by his creator questions about where he was at presently in his life. God asked Adam, Where are you (Are you away from me? You use to run to me and we enjoyed each other when I would come here. Now where are you at?
Who told you that you were naked? Who have you been talking too? I never told you that you were naked. Is this what God requires of my life, for me to naked before Him and not hiding? [Read Genesis 3: 9-11] But the Lord God called out to the man, “Where are you?” 10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden; I was afraid and hid from you, because I was naked.” 11 “Who told you that you were naked?” God asked. “Did you eat the fruit that I told YOU [Adam] not to eat?”
The Bible let’s us know that God is there to guide us in every situation if we will ask Him, trust Him, acknowledge Him with every decision that comes before us, pray until the answer comes asking Him for wisdom, knowledge, direction and understanding and if we believe Him when he told us that he will never leave us stranded.
Do you trust the news predictions more than God? No, you say?
Then why do you talk about what THEY say more than what God has said about you? Why do you meditate on the words of those who have predicted that you will be:
—a dead beat
–another man who makes children and not care for them
–another person headed to jail to make the state rich
–mostly likely to be gay or live-in poverty because you a poor stupid victim like your people were before you and around you
God wants to speak to you today for your life. Are you ready to listen? If so ask God to show you through his Word or somehow today what you are supposed to do. He tells His children daily that we are to:
The Lord has told you what is good. He has told you what he wants from you: Do what is right to other people. Love being kind to others. And live humbly, trusting your God. [Micah 6:7-9 ICB]
