When pursuing anything, we should stop and examine our motives. Are they pure or in alignment with the word of God? Are we humbling ourselves to God’s will? We cannot run from God nor do what we want and be blessed. Jeremiah 17:10 states, the Lord searches the heart and rewards man accordingly. We should not be anxious for anything but through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make our request known, Philippians 4:6. Wait I say on the Lord! Psalm 27:14.
