When people tell you, “Try out the fortunetellers. Consult the spiritualists. Why not tap into the spirit-world, get in touch with the dead?” Tell them, “No, we’re going to study the Scriptures.” People who try the other ways get nowhere—a dead end! Frustrated and famished, they try one thing after another. When nothing works out they get angry, cursing first this god and then that one, Looking this way and that, up, down, and sideways—and seeing nothing, A blank wall, an empty hole. They end up in the dark with nothing. Isaiah 8:19-22 MSG
It’s easy at points of desperation or crossroads for you to consider options that you wouldn’t otherwise consider under normal circumstances. It can be believing God for a job, financial increase, breakthrough in your career, marriage, restoration of your marriage, or even trying to have children. You may find yourself going to great lengths to do what men say works.
Let me share a story. I remember a time when God had specifically spoken about the promise of marriage. Everything was starting to come along as promised then as though something shifted in the spiritual realm, everything started to go the opposite direction. I remember praying and asking God what that meant. I even shared with a friend who gave me a book on prayers against rejection. I remember doing those prayers the first day.
On the second day as I was having my usual morning prayers, I heard God tell me to stop. He clearly told me there was no need to pray those prayers as He has the situation under control. What seemed like a good deed wasn’t exactly what it was.
Sometimes we go to great lengths seeking advice from people who have the knowledge but do not possess the promise either. Or assumed gurus who motivate you to become this great success and yet their lives do not reflect what they teach. Here is what God is encouraging you and me today. Let us go back to the Word, which is truth. Everything else takes you in unending cycles and leads you nowhere.
Everything else but the world leaves you frustrated, exhausted, helpless, and confused. It’s God’s word, not fortune tellers, his word, not science, His word not worldly systems. God is your creator. He certainly knows what’s best for you more than you do. Choose to trust in Him
Today I challenge you to look for scripture that answers to the challenges you are having. Here is what you need to understand about the power in the word of God. It is Him speaking it. You releasing it brings it to manifestation.
