Crossroads

God has placed each of us at a crossroads.

Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right of to the left, I will be with you. A voice behind you saying, this is the way walk ye in it.

Our cross roads are different. They come at different times in our lives. They come under different circumstances. They come involving different people.

But all the same, we each come to a God crossroads.

God longs for us to turn to Him and say “Lord, where do you want me to go? What choice will not be a hindrance to your will? Which way will bring you glory?”

Sometimes these are MAJOR choices…and other times it is…how will I react in this situation?

We had our ladies meeting last night, and the point of the message came to – my choices might affect someone else’s decision about God.

Meaning if I chose to act like a jerk and give free reign to my complaint, will that bring someone to Jesus or stop them? Or if I chose to bite my tongue, have anger and do not sin, give my complaint to the Lord – will that bring someone closer to Jesus or stop them?

There are times when a true social injustice towards others is committed and it is then our duty to respond in a Godly manner and then there are times when it is you under attack and the Lord must come to your defense. You have to see the situation for what it is.

But you also have to ask God’s option and do that! You don’t have to follow God’s will – He gave us free will. But we all have had the times of us doing our own thing and falling flat on our face with  our hands in our pockets. When we do as God wishes us, then we succeed, He gets glory, and His kingdom and unconditional love progresses forward.

I don’t know about you but I defintely want God’s will to come to pass in my life at every opportunity. I’m making it a daily habit and throughout the day to always ask ‘ Lord, what am I to do? How do I act? How do I react? How do I speak in this situation? Which way do you want me to go?”

I hope I”m not alone in this, for the benefits of doing God’s will are second to none.
