James 1:5 – If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Since God thought up the whole idea of relationships between men and women, parents and children, and friends, doesn’t it make sense to go him for direction when you have a problem?
Why do we have to ask before He answers? Because our relationship with God begins with faith. He doesn’t force things on us. He invites us into a relationship with Him. So we ask.
Many times we fail to ask. If you’re like me, you’re just rushing through your day doing this, doing that, assuming it’s going to be okay. But you need to just stop once in a while and say, “God, what is your direction?” He will gladly tell you.
And how does He tell you? An answer will usually come through one of two main ways: through people that are following Him and through His Word. Get together with a few people who you know seek after God, and ask them for their opinion. And, turn to God’s Word. Ask Him, “God, what do you have to say about this?”
Some people think God is not interested in our relationships. After all, He’s got a universe to keep going. But He is interested. He made you!
I understand the hurts that can exist in some relationships, but the incredible promise of God’s Word is that He can bring beauty into any relationship.
Both people in the relationship have to agree, and it will take some struggle to get there. That’s why you have to go to God for direction and guidance.
A GLORIOUS NEW MONTH
