...but I rejected it.
How many times do we need to ask for it?
And how many confirmations do we need for us to believe?
As human beings, we always want to be 101% sure in every step that we'll take.
We need a guarantee that this will turn out the way we wanted it to be.
An assurance that we are on the right track...
Hence, because of that, we tend to limit our capacity.
By playing safe, we are not able to maximize our potentials... and not giving our best in things that we do often results to frustrations.
People usually asks for signs... as we pray for His will to happen, we also have some of do-it-our-way requests. Though we always say, Thy will be done... but on the contrary, there are these "our will be done" -- and please give us this sign if You agree.
'Lord, whoever will be the first to sit on the 3rd row will be 'the one' for me...' or ' Father, the company which will offer this amount is the company where You want me to be...'
We all have whispered such 'wishes'... hoping that it will be granted...
But what if the first person who sits on the 3rd row is married? Or what if you got the offer but then, the company/management is not that good at all, will you take the job?
What if the first person who sits is your friends' enemy? Or the company you desires offered less?
I guess, 97% of us will ask for another sign...
More signs until our "prayers will be answered."
and until when? -- No one can tell.
In reality, do we really have to ask for signs?
Do we need to be reassured that God is giving us the correct answer to our prayers?
Do we really have to direct Him on how He shall respond to us?
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask, anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of Him. -1 John 5:14-15
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. - Hebrews 11:1
Isn't it comforting to know that the God who guides us sees tomorrow more clearly and gives directions more accurately that we can ever imagine?
