Prayer Brings Clarity

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- August 18, 2011

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8

Are you confused about what God has next for you in your life, work and relationships? Do you feel trapped in your aloneness—unsure if anyone really cares or not? It is in these moments of doubt and uncertainty that Jesus deeply desires to have communion with you and care for your soul. A lack of clarity is a calling card for Christ to show up and show you the way.

The human mind needs help to understand the ways of God. Without the Holy Spirit’s illumination we default to untruthful thinking and wrong assumptions that lead to confusing conclusions. For example, someone may not feel loved—and it is in the absence of love that fear and distrust set up shop. One who struggles to think they don’t deserve to be loved is wise to bow in prayer and receive their heavenly Father’s loving embrace.

“Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes” (Psalm 17:7).

Sometimes there is a lack of clarity of what to do at work. Everyone is eager to work hard; they just want to make sure they are occupied on the right things. How unfulfilling to sweat long and hard, only to discover your diligent service was around an unnecessary project. Perhaps in these awkward moments the leader and team swallow all pretenses and pray. Seek the Lord’s face first—then face with confidence whatever challenges arise.

Prayer is not a punch card that gives us credit in heaven, or a last resort when everything else has gone wrong. Prayer is first, last and along the way—the process of aligning with Almighty God’s agenda. He already has the plan laid out for His children. Our part is to patiently wait and listen for Christ’s clarity—as He is not the author of confusion.

“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33, NKJV).

Where is the Lord calling me to prayer, so that He can bring clarity and peace?
