It's Worth the Wait

John 5:30 (KJV-Jesus is speaking)

I can of mine own self do nothing as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

*Jesus never said or did anything that was outside of the will of His father, which is God. His actions and words were based on what He was led to do and say according to the guidance of God. Jesus was sent to Earth to be our ultimate example because He was God in the flesh, and sent to feel the humanism of life and what we go through on daily basis. He served as an ultimate example of the possibility of doing good things in life, and how to maintain yourself in a Christian lifestyle. In this lifestyle and like Jesus, we are suppose to be totally reliant on God for guidance and assistance in everything we do. This takes practice by remembering to ask His advice about EVERYTHING, utilizing the Holy Spirit to provide you with clarity, speaking in tongues, knowing whether or not you have peace with a choice, and being patient enough to wait on God's "yes" or "amen" green light before proceeding. Anything outside of that is a "no" or a pause that is meant for us to wait on in order to receive the answer. The point is to be guided by God, and not proclaim to follow Him, yet you never wait to receive instructions or clarity. As humans, it is easy to jump the gun, want a quick answer, create multiple plans, and go with the flow. However, ask yourself is that the true will of God? God is not the author of confusion (Numbers 23:19); therefore, why do we complicate the situation by confusing ourselves with unnecessary options. WAIT on GOD for CLARITY!
