So I start asking questions. I ask those whose judgement I trust! I ask those who I respect! And still I do not have the answer that gives me conviction either way. I just know I am not comfortable!
So I pray! Lord, show me Your answer! Show me Your word! Bring someone across my path who can guide me to YOUR WORD on this issue!
This week we are having stuff sorted out on our home. And the guy who leads this team, I start a conversation with him about this topic! And he is firm, he is direct, he is sure and confident! AND...he backs what he says with scripture! And my conscience leaps with excitement inside! Yes, that feels right! Yes, God's word is attached and true! And furthermore, today in reading some of my favourite bloggers' blogs, the general trend favours this outcome!
And I have it! I have this conviction of what the truth is in this regard! And I have peace about it. And so now I need to build into this new understanding and make changes accordingly.
What have I learnt? If you have questions....God has answers!
The thing is to go to God and His word for those answers because the world, and everyone in it, has an opinion! But God and His word remains the same, yesterday, today and forever! And if people add or subtract from His word, absolutely do not take their "opinion" into account.
Hebrews 4 v 12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
