As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.—Acts 13:2-3 (KJV)
The starting point to truly knowing God’s will is waiting on the Lord. Rather than acting on your own wants and needs, it is better to reflect and pray for His guidance. Recognize that God’s timing is different from yours and sometimes He uses detours to guide you.
Heavenly Father, help me to have the courage to boldly step forward in faith and follow Your instructions.
