Do not worry so much about that which you do not understand – put into action that which you do.
You will never convince a blind man to see. In the same way you will never argue an unbeliever into faith.
In each difficult situation you have the choice to believe and trust or to doubt and fear. What will you chose today?
Humility is not seeing ourselves as less than we are, it is seeing ourselves correctly in relation to God.
God will not do that which He has already given us the power and authority to do.
We must not confuse our responsibilities with God’s responsibilities and vica-versa. It is our responsibility to believe, to pray, to submit, to hold responsibility over the devil, to renew our minds, to forgive others, to hold every thought captive, to repent and so on. It is God’s responsibility to love, judge, protect, provide, guide, be ever present and a whole host more. There are some things only we can do and there are other things only God can do – let us not mix those up.
Lord, help me to seek that which is on your heart for me today. Help me to desire what you desire, to act as you would have me act, to love unconditionally, to give generously, to serve wholeheartedly, to worship continually, to praise unreservedly, and to always put you and others before myself.
As I sleep give me rest As I rise give me energy and motivation
As I eat give me a thankful heart As I work let me work for you
As I talk give me the words to say
As I play give me a spirit of fairness A
s I serve help me to do it with everything I have, yet in your strength
As I give let me have a joyful heart
As I listen give me ears to really hear As I worry or fear help me to trust you
As I pray draw me more in-line with your will
As I receive keep me mindful of those in need
As I think help me keep each thought captive to you
As I lay down to rest keep my mind set on you.
Come to God each day with a blank piece of paper. Our desires, our perceived needs, our agendas, our requests, our thoughts may be far from God’s heart for us. God knows what each day will bring – He will be all we need of Him. He will provide all we need and help us to be content in every circumstance. We just have to trust Him, that He knows best and wants the best for us and will lead us wisely.
