Confusion is a stop sign from God. A red flag..it says..wait..stop..pray..don’t move yet. God speaks and directs us through our feelings..not necessarily every feeling we have but definitely through some of them. He has given us His spirit and that spirit speaks to us in our hearts through our feelings and our senses. When we feel confused..there is a reason. What a great time to go back to God and pray..asking for clarity and wisdom. He wants to guide us so He will answer..maybe not right away..but soon enough.
Being a true ENFJ.. I like closure and enjoy it when things are wrapped up and put away. I even like emptying the dishwasher and folding the laundry because it feels so good to finish something. Life with God forces us to abandon some of our natural tendencies. For me that has meant learning to wait until I see what He is doing..rather than what I want to do. As this has become a bigger part of my life..I have been able to learn to stay in the gray area when I need to. I can’t say that I always enjoy it..but I understand that while I am waiting.. God is working..in me and in the situation.
Our God wants us to know His direction for our lives. He is not trying to make it difficult for us to follow Him. He does require us to stop and ask Him..to pray continually..seeking His direction..to be willing to change direction or to change our mind. Our willingness is critical and so is our ability to listen for His voice. It takes practice and He is not asking us to be perfect. The more we long for this guidance..the more it matters to us..the louder His voice will become.
He is calling to you..desiring to lead you..wanting to change you. He hears your voice and He is speaking to you..making things clear for you. His heart is for you..His desires for you are good. He is with you..holding on to you..He will never leave you.
“So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead you received God’s Spirit when He adopted you as His own children. Now we call Him, Abba Father. For His Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.”
