We may feel overwhelmed when a situation seems humanly impossible. God makes all things possible. Trouble doesn’t last always. Don’t underestimate God’s power. He’s all knowing. He’s Sovereign. He’ll show you the way out. He’ll work it out. With God we can overcome. It’s already done.
Let your focus be on God today. Concentrate on his power, even when you can’t see through troubles you face. Trust God. He has all power. That’s all he needs. He will meet your every need. His will is sovereign.
Be happy for others. Don’t desire what they have; even if you don’t have what they have. Be content. Be grateful to God believing because of his grace, all that you have is a blessing.
When God opens one door, he closes another. When he births something inside you, you don’t need validation from others. God will see you through the process. Deliverance is yours because of his Divine Providence.
Oftentimes we confuse our own desires with God’s will. Don’t confuse your will with God’s will. If things turn out in your favor but are contrary to what the Word says, it may have happened because of what you wanted and not what God said.
When you do or ask God for something in any given situation, you will know what God’s will is without hesitation. If what you ask will glorify God and build the kingdom, you won’t need any explanation. It will help you grow spiritually. It will not be something that goes against what the Bible forbids. Nor will you do it unwillingly. You won’t have to wonder, if it is unrighteous. When it concerns the will of God, it is righteous.
Moreover, if God doesn’t give you what you ask for, it may be that it’s not his will for you to have it. However, it could also mean that you may need to wait longer to have it. God does not give us specific information or direct answers to what he will do. He requires we make the right choices in whatever we do.
“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).” Commit your ways to him and he will give you the desires of your heart. Because God’s will is good and perfect and will not deviate from what his Word says. It won’t change. He will do what he says.
Do as God desires, make the decision to not sin or resist His will. Make choices that are appropriate. Choices that are in agreement with his will. Walk closely with the Lord to do as he desires. Let his will be your will in what he desires.
God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ever ask or think. He will place his desires on our heart when we walk closely with him. If what you desire can be of benefit and the Bible does not speak against it, this is your answer to make the right decisions. Follow your heart in it.
Renew your mind. Don’t conform to this world. You then will be able to test God’s will by his Word. Humble yourself in spirit. Truly seek God in all you do. God will reveal His will to you.
God’s Word instructs and guides us. He surrounds us with godly wisdom to make it through any season. He sends prayer warriors to pray for us for unknown reasons. God desires to impart in us, the fruit of the spirit to begin the process to mold us, in the image of his Son. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22, 23). It will transform you. Let His will, not your will, be done.
Be blessed! -JD
John 15:3, 4 “Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.” (ESV)
