"The S.O.S files are part of what I call THE S.O.S ADVENTURE. My concern is to help those on the field, by visits, written communications. It’s not a program or a separate ministry. It’s to help compliment what you are doing on the field. S.O.S stands for SOLD OUT ON SERVICE. " Rev. Robert (Bob) Vignola
What to Do When We Don’t Have a FREAKIN’ CLUE!
Dear Son or Daughter of The Most High
Have you ever had a conversation where someone says “I need your undivided attention,” so you stop what you are doing and sit down and listen? Maybe it’s you that needs someone to give complete attention to you. Well, Our Heavenly Father is like that too. In fact, He lovingly demands that attention and He gives it to me, if I am not distracted.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Guess what? You are part of His GOOD PLEASURE! He not only wants to listen to you, but wants to talk to you. I have missed Him talking when I am not still (Psalm 46:10). Remember that word STILL in the Aramaic means a turning towards. So I learn to do whatever it takes to turn towards Him, to get quiet. There sure are a lot of distractions in this world. Not everyone can live out in the country and only hear nature, the birds chirping and hear the soft winds blowing. Heck, growing up in New York the sounds of nature were called TRAFFIC! So, we learn how to push out the distractions.
God not only listens but loves to talk to His GOOD PLEASURE, YOU! When we don’t have a freakin’ clue of what to do, HE’S right there to talk to us. God never forsakes or leaves us.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings.
When He talks to you, and He’s very personal, we don’t start whining about it. HE has your best interest in mind. Here’s the Amplified of those two verses.
Philippians 2:13, 14 (AMPC)
13 .[not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire] both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
14 Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining [against God] and questioning and doubting [among yourselves]
God cares about every-every (yes every) little or big thing in our life and will direct and counsel us even when we don’t have a FREAKIN CLUE OF WHAT TO DO, HE LOVES YOU AND HE WILL TELL YOU.
Love you and pray for you,
The S.O.S Files
