“God speaks to people who decide they’re going to do what he tells them to do, even before he tells them.” @RickWarren
I read this quote earlier this week. Rings true to me.
If you put this to the test in the context of a coaching setting, a coach is drawn to those team players he knows are ready to follow his directions rather than those who think they know it all or can rest on their talents alone for success.
If you put this to the test in the context of a parenting situation, a dad is drawn to allow his high school son to start dating when he believes his son has decided to follow his dad’s instructions on how to treat a woman including keeping his sex drive in check.
If you put this to the test in the context of a business decision, an employer is drawn to offer a promotion to her employee who is all in on the business plan rather than one who is constantly challenging and questioning her direction.
If you are having a hard time hearing from God, maybe these questions might uncover the road block:
- Are you ready to say yes to whatever He says?
- Have you shown Him that your desire equals whatever He has for you?
