… or is it?
i really like the verse from yesterday that we are to walk “by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7) it got me thinking, does this mean we are to turn a blind eye to things around us that point us in one direction or another when up against making decisions? my answer: it depends.
hang with me here… if we are looking for signs to direct us, then yes, by all means shut that down! (see Matt 16:4) but on the other hand, if we are making choices in faith, then signs and wonders follow, it’s a whole different story. (see Mark 16:17)
we’ll always find a ‘sign’ to back up what we want if we look hard enough and are not making God a part of the process. but if we trust Him as we choose our steps with prayer and contemplation, (even if we are not stepping exactly where He wants because let’s remember, we are only human) He may choose to speak to us with signs as a confirmation of our faithfulness! for me, i tend to lean on being one who likes to see the signs. He knows that, and will choose to speak to me in that way, if i am stepping in faith first!

These Can’t Be The Only Choices
