How often do we as Christians look at our experiences, determine what God’s will is for us and then notice it just happens to coincide with what we want? It is far too easy to fall into the trap of looking for God’s permission to do or act or respond when we really should be seeking His providential guidance. This is tricky – how do we tell the difference? How do we uncover what God would have us do in contrast to what He often allows us to do? There is no easy answer here, as God’s does not set up flashing neon signs showing us the way. And no, He will not tweet you, post an Instagram or message you on Facebook either! Discouraged? Don’t be, because there is an answer! The key is knowing what to look for and knowing where and how to find it!
