Years ago while searching for my first home, I found what I felt was the perfect house. When the time came to put down money, I backed out. Why? I did not have any peace.
If you do not have peace about that relationship, job opportunity, marriage, purchase, move, divorce, or whatever decision you are about to make, DON’T DO IT! WAIT!
TRUST your instincts. TRUST what God is speaking to you about that situation. It may not make sense now, but TRUST that He knows what is best.
It was hard walking away from that house. However, a year later God led me to the home I would buy. Not one that seemed perfect, but the one that was perfect and hand-picked for me. Looking back now, I’m grateful I walked away from good, because I ended up with God’s best for me.
God loves you (yes, YOU)! That pause, or hesitation, you feel in your spirit may save you from heartache and disappointments. It may mean He has something better. Or, it may simply mean it is not time, yet!
WAIT on God! TRUST His timing and follow the path that leads to your peace!
Peace does not always mean an absence of fear. Sometimes on the path of peace you may feel afraid, or uncomfortable. I was afraid when I walked away from the first house, and was afraid when it came time to put down money on the house I would buy, but I had peace.
Peace comes in TRUSTing God no matter how we feel, or what we feel, because we know He is in control and He will take care of us.
