Hear, Listen, Wait, and Obey

God, if any part of this process is your will, please grant me the wisdom and focus I need to stay the path. If it is not your will, please make this impossible. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

29. That’s the number of homes I was shown by a pair of Realtors in Georgia since December. Throughout the process, I said the prayer above. As each home failed to suit my needs, I kept praying.

As I made bids which were not accepted, I said that prayer. When I made bids that were accepted, and traveled hundreds of miles only to back out of the deal because the home or the area just wasn’t right, I prayed.

When the Realtors who worked with me and showed those 29 homes to me hesitated or were less than honest about something I had interest in… I prayed that prayer.

Here I am, one week away from leaving for my new home, and it finally clicked. I backed out of that last home, decided that I was going to rent, and within a day a new realtor showed me several rentals… And I believe that’s what God intended all along.

I believe that God answers every prayer we make. Even when the response is silence, He is answering our prayers. Should we have the humility to hear Him, listen to Him, wait for Him, and obey Him… We might just save ourselves months of grief and get where we belong sooner than we expect…

But then again, the wisdom He has given me here through this process has made everything worth it. All in His time, not ours. His will be done, not ours. More of Him, less of us.

But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation.
My God will hear me.

Micah 7:7
