Morning Thrive - "Take A Look"

“Take a Look”

Hey everybody! Welcome back to Morning Thrive. We’re looking at God’s will for your life, and here’s another way you can find that out: look at the circumstances in your life. What are the circumstances around you? What doors are open to you and what doors are shut to you? You know, the Apostle Paul in the Book of Acts was praying for God’s direction, and where God wanted him. He thought he was going one direction, but he said the Lord kept shutting doors. So, he stepped back and said, “Lord, where do you want me to be?” And God gave him a vision, to go to another completely different place, really an opposite direction. See, God may be shutting doors because He’s trying to move you in another direction, where He wants you to be. So, what are the circumstances that you’re dealing with in your life? You may say, “Well, I’m 5’3 and weigh 120 pounds.” God’s will is probably not for you to be in the NFL, unless you’re a kicker! Maybe your circumstances aren’t that way, but maybe there are circumstances where you are wired perfectly to do what God has designed you to do. So, why don’t you ask God, “Lord what circumstances are around me, what doors are available to me, what doors are open to me, and what doors are shut? God, give me discernment to know which direction I should go.” When you begin to pray like that, God’s going to reveal it to you. Alright? Have a good day.
