I run to you....

While driving the other day I heard this song on the radio, "I Run To You" by Lady Antebellum. Though the song is one I've liked for awhile this time it took my mind in another direction. It made me think - in difficult or painful circumstances, when there are complicated decisions to be made, or I'm afraid who do I run to? That reminded me of something I recently read by Elisabeth Elliot about decision making -

"Shouldn't we always remember to run to the Lord, instead of to 39 of our closest friends? Why not go first to the foot of the cross?"

Have we learned to stand in God's presence, mouths shut, hearts open? "Lord, what do you want me to do?" We must be quiet in order to know Him and to hear Him and to hear Him answer us.

 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him" (James 1:5 ) is His Word to us.

There is a place for asking wisdom of godly friends, but let us always go first to God.

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."
Proverbs 18:10

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
