“Answers” by Dianne Timmering

King David says to his son, Solomon when he takes over the throne of Judah and Israel: “I am about to go the way of all the earth,” he said. “So be strong . . . and observe what the Lord your God requires: Walk in obedience to him . . . as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go and that the Lord may keep his promise to me.” 1 Kings 2:1

Recently, I couldn’t hear

God. Just couldn’t hear Him–in direction, guidance, solutions. I got busy, knowing His voice would eventually come to me. But I found I had to seek it to find Him. For He was there all the time. It was I who was distant. It was I who had settled into the business of the day and assumed His voice of discernment would come. But when it didn’t, I realized how powerful distance could be; how it could take me away from his beauty of magnificence. How He is there, but not to be assumed.

Seeking Him is where the answers are found not in the assumption of expectation. Assume nothing. Find Him. The answers are there in the nectar of His love. Always have been and always will be. Ask too, that helps. Ask and you will receive, He says.

And if the answer is to “wait”, it is still a good answer. Love to all. Dianne
