Wondering is a sense of not knowing. To think about something with curiosity. There is always a sense of wonderment from childhood to adulthood. You may wonder what you will be when you grow up. What college to attend? Will you get a degree? What type of career? Will you get married? Have children? Should you start a business? Will you be successful?
When we wonder and have a limited insight, problems may occur. Oftentimes, we rely on people, issues or conditions that surround us to make a determination. With finite resources, there will always be something else to wonder about. Uncertainty and doubt takes over. What if there was an infinite source to decrease the wonderments, in life? Think about it, when questions ensue, answers follow. That would be a great source to tap into. Right?
With God, certainty replaces wondering; and clarity out triumphs doubt. God will reveal the things to be known, at the right time, right location, right method and the right people. When you rely on God through prayer; reading His Word; and following His directions, many of the problems of life will be solved. God has a great plan for your life.
For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11Amplified Bible (AMP).
God’s Word is powerful. The Word is sharp enough to cut away the ambiguity and curiosity in the mind.
For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [a]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [b]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12Amplified Bible (AMP).
There are three key factors to activate this Source. One, you must trust God. Second, do not rely on your wisdom or the wisdom of the world. Lastly, acknowledge Him all your ways. Watch your wonderment decrease and your steps directed.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6King James Version (KJV)
For the record, it’s okay to wonder about the future and taking huge steps. However, if you wonder too long, without guidance and direction, fear can emerge. The results of fear can be paralyzing, causing you not to make any moves. You begin to wonder if I do this…this can happen, or if I don’t do this …this can occur. You have wondered way too long; time has lapsed and opportunities missed.
The world teaches we don’t need God because we can everything on our own. Pride and stubbornness can stop you from accepting God’s help and keep you wondering.
Don’t be stubborn.
Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. Deuteronomy 10:16King James Version (KJV)
Don’t be prideful. If wise counsel comes along, pride can push them away. One reason, it is much easier to remain in a loss world of questions than to venture on a road of chances. Moaning and groaning is easier than seeking and soaring.
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3King James Version (KJV)
First talk to God about your problems, then talk to your problems about God. Trust and believe and allow God to wave away your wonderment. God and His Word is the antidote to the wondering road.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31King James Version (KJV)
