Besides looking it up on the internet, when you want answers to something, where do you go?  When we are younger, most often we go to our parents and ask them incessant questions, like why, why, why, to which we may or may not have answers.  Eventually we learn that our parents are not as full of knowledge as we once thought, then we may ask our friends or peers, who may know even less than our parents did.  As we get older, we learn to ask the experts in a field to help figure things out a little more, so we learn from doctors, plumbers, electricians, pastors, accountants, lawyers, policemen, and a myriad of other professionals, but still may not have answers to the bigger questions in life.  We also learn that in every profession, there are some with more knowledge than others, and there are some who do their job well, and others that do not.  We should learn and grow from experience, and think we are getting smarter, but maybe not always wiser in how we use the knowledge that we gain.  As we reach middle age, most of us know quite a bit, but we still may not have all the answers to the questions that we seek.  Where do we go then?  

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”  John 6:68-69

When you are trying to decide whether or not to make a big life change, who to marry, how to talk to someone in a difficult place, who do you consult then?  Is God your first or last option when it comes to big decisions in life?  If you are like me, you have probably been on both ends of the spectrum.  When we pray, how often do we seek His counsel regarding our life choices?  It may be little things, or it may be only related to big decisions, but we can seek guidance for either.  We may also ask what things in my life do I need to change, and besides asking those closest to us, God may know us better than we know ourselves.  When we are in a difficult place when not knowing what to do, ask Him to guide you both to answers and to others who can help you find them as well.  God often answers prayer in ways we don’t always expect, but He is the wisest counsel we can seek.  May you find the answers you are looking for today!

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.    Matthew 7:7

Yours in Christ,
