I ’thought’ God told me…
“They don’t understand how to receive God’s approval. So they try to set up their own way to get it, and they have not accepted God’s way for receiving His approval. Christ is the fulfillment of Moses’ Teachings so that everyone who has faith may receive God’s approval.” (Romans 10:3-4 GW)
I remember when… ‘I tried so hard to gain God’s approval.’ So I tried to set up my own way to get it. When Margie and I lived in Nederland pastoring a church… I ‘thought’ God told me to get my wooden cross, which I had already been doing, but not ACROSS AMERICA. Yes, thats the plan, from the east coast all the way to the west. I was so sure that God was on board for this.

I know that some of you have already read this ‘quote’ and the ‘paragraph ‘ below. But, go ahead and read it again.
“THE RESTLESS SEARCH FOR THE WILL OF GOD,
IS A SURE SIGN THAT YOU ARE OUT OF IT!”
“The will of God is not a mysterious set of sealed orders we search for and receive if we happen to hit on the right formula. Rather, the will of God is a relationship with Him in which He discloses His purpose, power, and plan for our lives—and in that order…. The Lord’s will for me was to abide, listen, wait—to want Him more than His guidance…. out of love for me, He withheld temporarily what I wanted in order to give me what I needed.”
“Discovering God’s Will In Your Life” by Lloyd John Ogilvie
When I was trying so hard to gain God’s approval and His will for me, I found out that I was doing something wrong. The quote and the paragraph you just read was a turning point for me. I HOPE IT DOES THE SAME FOR YOU!
