Do you have a big decision to make and you want God to show you which is the right one? Are you looking for affirmation from God that what you’re doing is best? Is God telling you to do something but you want confirmation from him that he is really telling you to do it? Are you frustrated because God isn’t answering your prayers for wisdom in choosing what to do in a particular situation? These are just some of the ways that we seek a sign from God in order that we can trust him. Yet with Moses, God’s sign wouldn’t come until after Moses had obeyed him.
Were you interrupted today? Have you been inconvenienced recently? Did something happen to upset your carefully made plans? Does it seem like something always comes up to prevent you from accomplishing your plans, even plans that you made to serve and honor God? Have you stopped to consider that perhaps those interruptions and inconveniences are God’s way of leading you to fulfill your part in his plan?
