When you feel pressured to do something ... if you do NOT have peace about it ... WAIT ... do NOT go forward.
It is better to be at peace ... to stay in the "peace zone" than to go ahead ... even if it looks good!
This can be a trick of the enemy to get you in bondage and mental duress.
Pray about the situation. Do NOT let people, even friends, coerce you or persuade you to take action
IF you do NOT have peace about the situation.
I promised God one time that I would never do anything ... or take action concerning anything ... that I was NOT sure about.
If I had a question about the situation, or if I did NOT have peace, I promised God that I would NOT go forward.
The reason I made this promise to God was that I got into a very difficult, and emotionally trying situation, as a result of a FAST - or, rash - decision.
Lots of times people are emotionally distressed because of such uncertain behavior: going ahead of God!

Nothing can bind you if you will follow your heart and listen to God!!!
I am going to tell you WHAT to do if you are
bound and have lost peace ... that is, you
have become emotionally disturbed ... as a
result of "going ahead of God."
>>> First, PROMISE God that you will NEVER
do anything again unless you have peace about
it. That is, you will make NO rash decisions.
God loves you, my friend, and He does NOT want
you bound by unwise decisions and actions. He
paid the GREATEST price - the gift of His Son, Messiah Yeshua, that you could be FREE!
>>> Second, ASK God to turn the situation
around and smite Satan through it, and give
you a BLESSING in spite of what you have done.
Ask God for mercy. Read Micah Chapter 7,
verses 7 thru 10 in the Tanakh (the Hebrew
>>> Third, give a GIFT to God. As a result of
God turning this situation around, and for His mercy and kindness in restoring you, promise
God AHEAD OF TIME that you will give him a
certain, specific gift ... or that you will
take a certain, specific action of love and/or sacrifice as a GIFT to Him.
>>> Fourth, THANK God ahead of time ... and every day ... for His deliverance that He is going to show you. He WILL show Himself strong in your behalf IF YOU are sincere.
I trust this teaching will help you, my friend. I learned the SECRET I have shared with you the HARD WAY. And through the years, I have seen the manifold mercies of God as a result of what He taught me ... even through my RASH decisions ... even decisions that looked good, or that other people thought were good, but that I did NOT have peace about when I made them.
