PRAYER: LORD GOD, according to your Word in Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28 and many more, establish your will in my life, and make everything work together for my good!
WHY PRAY THIS?: Whenever we need to make a big decision in our lives: Which Course do we register for, which house do we rent/buy, which business or job do we invest or take, who should we marry, where do we move to, what, where and how do I do this and that?… LORD, is this your will for me?
When our mind and heart is dizzying or otherwise quickened within us, I believe GOD for us that HE is there standing in front of us, looking into our eyes lovingly and saying: “Rejoice always instead of being sad, pray constantly instead of complaining, give thanks in everything instead of being an ingrate at least for the little I have helped you on before now..thereby eagerly waiting on ME to influence this as expected; for this is MY will for you in Christ Jesus.”
If we were to look at GOD’s will for our life as more of a way of walking than a decision we make, how would our perspective shift? Greatly!
Sometimes, we make decision but feel trapped in it and in turn seek others opinions for options. Well, GOD can and does use books, people, and wrong decisions itself to teach us. But let us look to the GIVER and not just the gift.
NOTE: GOD and HIS Word are our foundation. Therefore, Our family, our community, our knowledge, our possessions are all gifts and answers to the prayers we have been praying, influencing the next decisions.
The only book you need: The Bible.
The only person you need: Jesus.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11. Peace be unto You!
