“Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord? Who knows enough to be His teacher or counselor? Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice? Does He need instruction about what is good or what is best?” (Isaiah 40:13-14)

So many times in our prayer life, we want to tell God what to do—tell him what is best. Instead of asking for direction, we want to give God direction. While it is good to tell God the desires of your heart, it is even better to then listen to what he has to say about those desires. Sometimes we do too much talking and not enough listening. 

We are human, we are finite, and we have a very narrow view of reality. We have tunnel vision for what we want, what we desire. God is infinite! God knows all—sees all—through all space and time. He has the broadest view there is. 

“No one can measure the depths of His understanding” (Isaiah 40:28).

Looking back, I can think of numerous times I tried to advise God on what was best for our family. “God, don’t you know we should be in the big leagues by now? Don’t you know we should be with another team? Don’t you know we should have a baby by now? Don’t you know…?”

When I finally stopped to listen, God answered my questions with “No, now is not the right time. I have you exactly where I want you. I have a plan for your family….” And you know what? He was right. Today I am blessed beyond what I could have hoped for because God took me down his path, not mine.

Listen. Give God the opportunity to speak to you. Remember that his perspective is infinitely larger than ours. Our Father knows best.

Prayer: Father, thank you for NOT answering all of my prayers in the way I wanted you to. Help me to remember that you, and you alone, know what is best for my life.

Suggested Reading: Isaiah 5:8-9
