Waiting on the Holy Spirit

The next morning the two angels said to Lot, “Take your wife and your two daughter and get away from here as fast as you can!  But Lot just stood there amazed that the Lord was going to destroy the city.  So the angels took Lot, his wife, and his two daughters by the hand and led them out of the city.  And the angels said, “Run for your lives, don’t even look back.  And don’t stop in the valley.  Run to the hills, where you will be safe.”   Genesis 19:15-17

Are you anxious, impatient and frustrated about a particular situation?  Have you ever considered that God might be testing the strength of your faith and measuring the level of obedience you have towards him?  

Don’t go ahead of the Spirit attempting to resolve it on your own strength for you will fail miserably.  He wants to free you from any unhealthy relationships or situations you may find yourself in today.  While you wait on the Holy Spirit, pray about finding God’s knowledge and wisdom for there is where the treasures of your lives lies.  Don’t allow your emotions to contradict what the Spirit is trying to tell you for the flesh is weak.  Instead, we are to live and test all things against the word of God. Constantly meditating upon the word which will lead us to safety.   

Be sensitive to the voice of the Spirit for when it directs you to move forward, you must move at that specific moment.  Don’t wonder how to make things better or procrastinate over things you cannot change, but go and be obedient.  It is difficult to leave what you are accustomed to and start anew, but sometimes it is necessary for us to start with a new beginning. 

So if you find that God is removing you from a particular situation or relationship be faithful, truthful and obedient to him.  Don’t doubt him, don’t hold on to the past, don’t hold on to what is destroying your relationship with God for he only wants to save you.  He wants to keep you from harm’s way.

2 Corinthians 2:9  
But it is just as the Scriptures say,

“What God has planned
    for people who love him
is more than eyes have seen
    or ears have heard.
It has never even
    entered our minds!”
