Is that You, God? | Chelsea Horne

S~ But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by His justice, and the holy God will be proved holy by His righteous acts. Isaiah 5:16 (NIV)

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1 (NIV)

O~ I tend to question myself with God a lot. I think that I hear His Voice, but then I don’t know if it’s me hearing Him or if I’m just thinking it myself. Doubt grips my heart and won’t let go! To the point where I have begun to question what God says to me in His Word. I have been struggling with this for a long time. But, today’s verses that stood out to me are perfectly clear!

A&P~ Lord Jesus, I’m sorry that I have been questioning You. I’m sorry that I have been trying to hide my heart from You. Why I ever thought that it would work, I have no idea! I have been afraid to surrender my life completely to You. I ask if You will, please, help me to trust You with all that I am, one piece at a time. I want to get lost in Your Love, God. I want to understand and truly live in the Truth of who I am in You. Please soften my heart to Your Voice, and uproot the fear that has been planted there. Please help me not to doubt Your Word, but for Your Truth to be rooted so deep in my heart that nothing will affect it. The storms and trials of life can rage, huff and puff as much as they want, but Your Truth is not jostled once. Please teach me to hold on to You and Your Truth as my anchor in the storm.

I am a sheep, Jesus, wandering in the wilderness looking for water. I have tried to drink sand and convince myself that it was water. It only made me more and more thirsty, to the point where I am emaciated and fighting for each breath. I’m sorry for all that I have done, and for doubting Your Voice in my heart. Please, Jesus, help me. Please teach me to know Your Voice and respond to Your Truth in obedience above all of the noise. Humble me to be a child in Your Arms, just learning how to walk. Confident that You will catch me when I fall, and teach me to walk in Your Truth.

In Your Name I pray,

Amen
