He Is Lord
Leviticus 24.11-12 "And the Israelite woman’s son blasphemed the name of the Lord and cursed; and so they brought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.) Then they put him in custody, that the mind of the Lord might be shown to them."
A lot of us need to slowdown; we need to learn to wait patiently for God. We take actions on our own, do whatever we like, and then when there are issues, that's when we run to God for damage control. Why then do we call Him Lord?
It's really sad that a lot of us have no relationship with the Holy Spirit. You see, prayer is not only about asking God for things; the prayer of a believer should be more about seeking His will! And that's why there are no real testimonies! We would rather consult men like us with limited insight. Is Christ truly the Lord of our lives?
We must involve God in our decision making. Actually, we must let Him make decisions for us. Especially when you're an overseer of God's sheep! I know that you have the wisdom of God in you, but He's the Boss! Look at Acts 16.6-7 "Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them." What you want to do might be fantastic and would even glorify God, no doubt, but please seek the mind of God first; that's when He's truly glorified. And that's when success, safety and satisfaction are guaranteed.
