God doesn’t always tell us what is right.

Annoying, right?

How difficult it is sometimes to move forward with decision making because of this. Especially when you want so badly just to follow His will for you, but you aren’t exactly sure what His will is. Although we can receive from God all the time very specific answers that are very clear, there are also times when we just can’t figure it out.

How can we discern between our thoughts [and] the Spirit?

We are told that all good things come from God, and if it’s good then we are to go for it. But what if it just seems good to you but it’s not good in His eyes? But what if there’s more than one good option to choose from? What then?

How can we know what is best rather than what one is just good?

And I don’t about you, but knowing that there is sometimes more than 1 bestthing to choose from doesn’t always give me comfort, but more anxiety moving forward.  (Is your head spinning yet just thinking about all this? Mine is).

I know I don’t want something if God doesn’t want it for me—yet, how many prayers I’ve spent asking Heavenly Father to just tell me what He wants me to do so I can do it and still feel like I’m going in circles. Do you know how much time I’ve spent wasting and waiting and worrying, feeling stuck because I felt like I couldn’t understand a clear answer with what to do? And the more time I spent thinking about one decision over the other— battling with thoughts and fears and blessings on each choice—the more confused I became and the harder it got.

God doesn’t always tell us what is right.

But it is a promise to us from Him that He will always tell us what is not right.
