As Christians, we come across many things in our daily lives that may seem to be out of control. During moments of uncertainty, even our conscience has a tendency to fail us a little bit.
However, it is precisely at times of uncertainty that we are prompted to turn to God in order to get proper guidance.
In fact, He is so concerned about those He loves that He sends forth warnings when there is a threat to their safety. But, more specifically, how can we comprehend God's mode of communication with us? The following are some clues that can be helpful in determining whether or not God is urging you to avoid doing something specific:
1. If something goes against God's word, stay away from it.
The word of God continues to be the fundamental standard by which we might comprehend God's thoughts and learn about His ways. As a result, anything that is in conflict with God's word should be avoided at all costs.
2. God communicates with you through dreams
At some point in your life, you may have had a dream in which you were confronted with a difficult decision to make. Sometimes you may find yourself in a difficult situation, yet God will finally reveal His will to you in a dream. Job 33:14-15, for example, asserts unequivocally that God communicates with man through dreams and even warns us of impending doom through dreams. Pay attention to the images in your dreams.
3. You experience a loss of inner peace.
There are instances when you may have already made a decision or are about to make a decision, but you have a nagging feeling that something is not quite right. Your conscience warns you that there may be a problem, but you are unable to pinpoint where or how it might be occurring. When you experience a loss of inner peace, you may feel unsettled or pause before taking action. Depending on how you interpret it, this could be a warning that whatever you're about to undertake could end up in disaster.
