We have several duplexes under contract. We’ve offered them as a package, which makes it easier for us, but can become confusing for the title agent. I spent some time in their office yesterday trying to help them understand so that the pro-rated rents would come out right on the closing statement. It was a mess in their mind until I explained it. It makes sense to them now and will give us confidence in their numbers. Sometimes there is a simple answer for the chaos we experience; a misunderstanding, hurt feelings, a comma when there should have been a period, you name it; and the results can come out much differently at its cause. In the case of the closing, there were too many unexplained papers. I expect that much of the upheaval the world is experiencing is a product of something simple. The enemy comes in, puts his spin on our troubles, complicates it, and causes confusion. When misunderstandings begin, know that it is not from the Lord. Pray for the Holy Spirit to guide you to the truth and for him to sort it out, so you have clarity. Don’t get confused; wait on the Lord to give you the answer.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13
