Discerning Direction from God-Part 5

Part 5. Trust. Begin to look at your situation as an opportunity to trust your sovereign, omnipotent God who always works everything for your good (Romans 8:28). Consider these practices instead of becoming anxious or fearful.

Apart from John 9:31, also see:  Job 27:9 and 35:12; Psalm 18:41; Proverbs 1:28, 15:29, and 28:9; Isaiah 1:15; Jeremiah 11:11 and 14:12; Ezekiel 8:18; Micah 3:4; Zechariah 7:13; and James 5:16.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, references for John 9:31.



These are a few door photos that I have shot and recently printed.  They are both from locations in Rome, Italy.  The theme for today’s Developing Your Eye is Connect.  I am using this opportunity to display these two photos that I haven’t added to this site yet.  This one includes the text for 1 Timothy 2:5-6, which describes Jesus as the only mediator between God and man.  If it is impossible for man to connect with God without a mediator, Jesus has made the impossible possible with His ultimate sacrifice for all.


This image includes Matthew 7:8, where the last part of the verse states, “and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”  Both verses reveal amazing truths.  Both verses also reveal the connection between God and man, who is Jesus.  I’m not saying He is the only way, I’m saying that He said He is the only way to God.  This is what a follower of Christ does when speaking of Christ, they are pointing the listener to Christ, to who He is-in hopes that all that can be saved will be saved.  These verses point us to the door, the way, our only connection to God.
