Checks and Balances

Great peace have they who love Your law.

(Psalm 119:165)

I have written several times in this devotional about the fact that god sometimes leads us through circumstances. This is certainly true, but we must be balanced as we seek to hear and obey His voice through circumstances. I do not recommend using circumstances alone to discern God's will. We should also consider peace and wisdom, which I have also addressed in this book. These are major ways in which we hear from God, and we should never ignore them. A circumstance might look like an open door, but we should not go through the door unless we have peace.

Following circumstances alone can get us into real trouble. Satan can arrange circumstances as well as God can, because he has access to the natural realm in which we live. Therefore, if we follow circumstances alone, without considering other ways we hear from God, we can fall into deception.

We know we cannot go against God's Word. We must be led by peace and walk in wisdom. It is easy to do a quick "inner check" to test the level of peace in our hearts before allowing circumstances to lead us. The safest way to hear from God is to combine biblical methods of being led by the Spirit and allow them to serve as checks and balances for one another. It is always best to consider the whole counsel of God's Word and never merely try to find portions of it that agree with what you would like.

GOD'S WORD FOR YOU TODAY: Always follow peace when making a decisions.
