It was just a normal trip to the bookstore.
A large bookstore.
A Christian bookstore, actually.
I had gone with friends to pick out some literature. Quietly, inside my heart, I had other things on my mind.
I really do want to follow Jesus and do the things He wants me to do; yet hearing the clear cut instructions may not happen.
Standing there in the store, looking around at the vast array of books in several categories, I wondered if there was anything there that could help me—-something to give me insight and encouragement.
Somehow, I sort of felt as if I were someone who was ill with an infection who had just walked into a pharmacy.
"Great!" you say? I’m right where I need to be? Well, there’s just one catch—the pharamacist isn’t in and I am standing there surrounded by medications, not knowing which one, if any, could help me.
I prayed and asked God about showing me anything He wanted me to see. One book in particular caught my attention. Although I didn’t buy it until the next day, I believe it to be God’s response to my prayer.
Do you ever feel like you are standing in a field of answers, tightly gripping your one question, yet confused at how to go about seeking the truth?
The Psalmist said in chapter 40, verse 3:
"He put a new song in my mouth…"
Are you longing for a new understanding?
A fresh outlook?
The true answer?
Why not ask God to show you what it is He wants you to see?
