Direction

I'm going to give you some personalized scripture declarations today on the topic of DIRECTION.

I feel that many right now are searching for direction. We've heard way too many conflicting stories on all that's going on concerning Covid-19.

We've heard way too many conflicting stories on how it's being handled, the statistics, the timelines on when we get to go back to normal, and many different opinions on should we even go back to normal yet. We’ve heard way too many speculations and theories about our future and even our very lives. Of course, I could go on and on, but I don't want to park there. We can be informed, but we should not be consumed.

I've said it multiple times in my Daily Boost messages, as well as my Sunday messages, and I'll say it again. If we want peace and we want to really be led by God, we need to keep our focus off all that stuff and on the things of God.

I realize that there may be a need for more than a blanket statement like that. You may be wondering, “just what things of God should we focus on right now?”

We can pick different topics in God's Word and choose to focus on those each day. We can find the particular scriptures that fix any areas we may be struggling with, and focus on those each day. And all that is wonderful.

But I really feel in my spirit that right now, God's supernatural army needs direction from our Commander in Chief.

And, how are we going to get that direction? We're going to either find it in God's Word or hear it from His Spirit within us.

And how are we going to walk out that direction? We're going to do it by faith.

So, take the scripture declarations I'm providing and use them to build and strengthen your faith in God's direction for your life. It’s a place of peace, a place of safety, and place of victory.

I know with me, it's a very comforting thing to have faith in the direction of God. It’s very comforting to know that I can hear from Him and that He will lead me, guide me, and show me things to come, as I put my trust in Him and His Word.
