Don't Argue with God

By Andrea Merrell

Seek His will in all you do,
    and He will show you which path to take.

Proverbs 3:6 NLT

It was an internal tug of war. God’s instructions were clear. Still, I wanted to argue.

But God …

Ever been there? If so, you know it’s not a fun place to be. We seek God with all our heart. We ask for direction and guidance. We desperately need an answer. When He gives it, we balk. Then we try to negotiate.

I’ve learned over the years—the hard way—that arguing with God is as useless as a pilot disagreeing with the control tower’s instructions or a ship’s captain telling the lighthouse to get out of the way. Both the control tower and the lighthouse see the big picture. They know all the risks. And both have the only right answer for safety and well-being.

Staying in constant communication with our Father should be our first and foremost priority. Listening for His voice then heeding His instructions will keep us out of trouble, especially when we don’t know which way to turn. It’s a matter of trust.

If you’re in a hard spot today, seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. 

And remember … don’t argue with God.
