I just spent the last two hours pacing my house like a caged animal.
I’ve been seeking God’s direction about something and just haven’t been able to put my finger on which way to go.
Can you imagine what it says to God –when we want to know His way so badly we can’t even sit down?
When we refuse to rest until we know.
Jesus says we are to bang on the doors of heaven until God answers and gives us what we need. (Luke 11:5-9 NIV)
Pacing back and forth. Throwing pebbles at the bedroom window.
This is a persistent heart that refuses to go away until satisfied. What other house would we go to for help? What other door swings wide to such immense power and wisdom and good will and love?
Jesus says, “The door will be opened to you.”
So don’t slump your shoulders and go away empty handed.
Kick at the foot plate.
Bring a sleeping bag and camp out right on the porch if you need to. Might be a while, but the door will be opened.
“…I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” (Psalm 5:3 NIV)
You do expect an answer, don’t you?
