“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV.
Some of us are sitting on the throne of our lives and doing what we want. We’re doing what we think is best, going where we feel we need to go, choosing opportunities that we think look good, and directing our path. It’s like sitting in an expert barber’s chair, and we’re cutting our own hair–and it’s not working. Yet, if you came to the barber, then let the experienced barber do it.
You are doing your will and not His. God should be sitting on the throne of our lives. We let the Holy Spirit be our Guide and allow the will of God to reign over our own.
He knows what best for you. He knows your wants and needs. He knows the purpose and plan He created you for. He knows the very things that you delight in and how you want your life to look like. His will has every one of your desires already factored in.
He is a good Father. He is perfect and holy. There is nothing missing and nothing broken in Him. His will for you is perfect and holy. His will for you has nothing missing and nothing broken. In His will, you’ll be completely satisfied, blessed and you’ll be a great blessing. Even when you’re faced by the devil when you’re in God’s will, you have an assurance of the outcome because you know, that you know, you are where you’re supposed to be, doing what He told you to do.
So when God says My will is that you move, then don’t stay. When He says she’s not of My will for you, then let her go. When He says take this job, trust He has a very good reason for you to do it. When He says this is what I created you for, pursue that, do it and it will work. The sooner you do His will, the better your life will become. The happier you’ll be.
Prayer: Father, Your will is better for me. Your will is perfect for me. Reign in my life and I decide now to submit my will to Yours. Show me any area that I’m not where I’m supposed to be and help me to get into Your will. I thank You for it now. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
