“Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” Ephesians 5:17, KJV.
Just as it is healthy to remove clutter in your home, it is healthy to remove the clutter in your life. You come to the understanding that some things are not in the will of God for you. Pursuing some things or someone may be a good idea, but not a God idea, which will result in us wasting our time, resources, energy, and focus. Before long, we find that our lives become overcrowded with the clutter, and we have been pulled away from the real opportunity, the real pursuit, the real plan from God.
Be wise and evaluate where you are and where you need to be going. Take the time to pray, and even fast, to understand what the will of the Lord is for you. In these times, clutter will cause you to become confused, stagnant, unfulfilled, and unhappy. Sometimes the guidance, focus and rest we seek can become very clear by simply getting rid of the clutter. Clear off the table of your life and let only the peace of God’s will remain.
Prayer: Father, I praise You. Reveal and help me to remove any clutter in my life. Every good idea or opportunity isn’t Your will for me. Show me what You have You told me to do, and not to do. What have You said now is not the time? Help me clear the table of my life, and let the peace and joy of Your perfect will remain. I make this my single pursuit and I thank You in advance for victory in this season and the coming new year! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
