It is right, indeed proper, for any Christian to seek the Lord's heart. This is Jesus' model. He did not act independent of His Father.
Jesus prayed in Gethsemane:
Your will not Mine be done. (Mark 14:36)
But sometimes God comes to you, and you haven't even prayed from Gethsemane.
Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. (Exodus 3:1)
Consider Moses for example:
he encountered God in a bush that was burning but not being consumed.
Moses had ventured to the far edge of the desert.
And, Moses met God on His mountain - Horeb.
There are three short lessons here for guidance:
- God is familiar with inhospitable places. You don't have to be in a church to hear from God.
- Expect the unexpected. This very unusual guidance will be just for you, but to benefit many.
- The more surprising the experience, the more the likelihood God is in it.
God created us out of nothing and so long as we are nothing - He can make something out of us. ~ Martin Luther
