An incredible artist and gal I follow on insta posted this reminder last week and I just had to share it! Make sure you give Cassidy Rowell a follow for constant encouragement and uplifting posts!
"Do you ever ask God a question and then hear crickets?
I remember a time when I used to desire to hear God’s voice so badly. I wanted to do what He wanted me to do. And so I would ask Him for guidance.
But after asking, I felt like He would say nothing.
Or I would get an answer that I thought was from Him, but confusion would set in and I’d second guess everything I heard.
Questions like “Was that really God talking?” or “What if you heard incorrectly and do the wrong thing?” plagued my brain.
I’m so grateful God brought me out from that season and into a place where I can hear His voice clearly. And I’ve got some good news: YOU can too!
If you’re where I used to be and desire to hear God’s voice clearly, here are some things I learned that got me through AND out of the “silent season.”
1️⃣ Have trust in God’s timing.
It’s true that sometimes when we ask God a question, He’s not ready to give us the answer.
We may experience silence from the Lord on certain topics, but we can always trust that He will reveal it in His perfect timing.
2️⃣ Ask yourself, “Am I really waiting on God, or is He actually waiting on me?”
Sometimes we’re waiting around for God to give us an answer. But the truth is He may actually be waiting on us.
Go back to old journals or think of past things God has told you to do. Have you done them?
If you’re still stuck on the last thing He told you, then He’s not going to move you to the next thing." - Cassidy Rowell
If you’re still stuck on the last thing He told you, then He’s not going to move you to the next thing.
