There are some of us who buy new things, get new jobs, and go towards a different path without consulting God, but we want God to bless our decisions. That’s not the operation of God. This is floundering.

Floundering is when we essentially try new things, without the leading of the Holy Spirit, using our own reason and logic. If everything works out smoothly in our new endeavor, we continue on and appear wise, however, if we face difficulties and setbacks, we claim it wasn’t God’s will for our lives.

We can skip the guessing and floundering by acknowledging God before every decision we make. The Holy Spirit will teach us all things (John 14:26). He will tell us when, where, and how to start something new or He’ll tell us to be patient and wait on what He has for us.

Stop attempting do life on your own. Let God lead you to the prosperous place He has for you.

Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
