Magic 8 ball God?

"Magic 8 ball, does Johnny like me?" OUTLOOK GOOD! "Magic 8 ball, am I going to get an A on my math test?" MY SOURCES SAY NO! "Magic 8 ball, am I going to get grounded for tying my little brother to the tree earlier today?" WITHOUT A DOUBT! "Magic 8 ball, am I crazy for asking a ball full of blue water and a dice inside important life questions?" ASK AGAIN LATER CRAZY PERSON!

Please tell me I am not dating myself and you remember this toy???? I remember shaking it and asking the same question over and over until I got the answer I wanted ha! I don't know why but this morning I was sitting spending some time with the Lord asking Him all these questions & I got to wondering if I treat God like a Magic 8 ball. "God, is my husband going to have to change jobs?" Be still and wait on me. "God, is this decision we are about to make going to be the right one?" Just remain in me. "God, it would be really nice to have some answers here so I'm not stressed." I never promised this life would be without it's still and know I AM God. I got to thinking, do I keep "shaking" God until I get the answer or result I want? Or am I capable at this time in my life after knowing the Lord for more than 25 years to remain in Him, be still and KNOW that my Jesus who died the cross for me has my best interest at heart. Funny the things you think about when you have a quiet morning with nothing but your bible and journal in front of you.
