It is very pleasing to the Lord when you do this, and He will not only surround you with His love and joy, He will also supply all your needs for whatever is to come your way during the next 24 hours. Phil 4:19 TNIV says “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
When you get into a regular pattern of doing this, you will experience much joy and peace throughout your days, and this will serve to not only enlighten you to the many truths that are relevant to your current situation, it will allow you to fulfil the plans that God has for you at that particular point in time. John 15:5 AMP “I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from me (cut off from vital union with Me) you can do nothing.”
You will be well equipped with much knowledge and power to fulfil your destiny. God will see to this for you. He speaks His will to us into our hearts and our thoughts, and we then know how to proceed with the situations and experiences that come our way. He sends His Holy Spirit to guide us and inform us in the many different activities that we encounter each day. Psalm 37:4 NKJV says “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
When we come to understand the significance of the role that the Lord plays in our daily lives, we will have achieved much, knowing that our lives should be fulfilled by the very promises of God Himself. With every seed planted, we will reap a harvest, and it is God who is in charge of our harvest. God sees to it that the plant grows and thrives in whatever conditions it meets, and it will come to be according to His will. It is written in 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 NKJV 6”I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.”
It is God who in His wisdom, oversees our paths and directs us as to which steps to take. If we put our trust in Him wholly and completely, we will find ourselves gaining momentum with each step we take, and all the while reaping the many benefits of allowing Him to rule in our hearts and lives. “Deuteronomy 6:4 states “The LORD—and the LORD alone—is our God.”
The truth of the matter is that we cannot do it alone. There are many pitfalls along the path, and it can become quite treacherous when we do not allow God’s favour to shine upon us. We as humans need to understand that we do not have all the answers, and there are many, many more questions than answers that come about as a result of disregarding the Lord’s purpose in our lives.
We must look to the Bible as our source of strength and information which tells us what God’s will for us is in most every situation that can possibly arise in this life. We must seek His face always and in the midst of trials we will come to know that He is in charge and that we are being safely guided home to shore.
Take time alone, away from the hustle and bustle, to sit quietly with the Lord as much as possible, and you will begin to see small changes at first, but they will grow in number, and many lives will be changed as a result. This will help you to cope with the never ending barrage of stuff happening around you and will strengthen both you and your faith.
Keep a record of these changes however small, and when you look back on them, you will be delighted to see that you have indeed been guided by the hand of God, and made a living example of what His word is all about! Amen!
All glory goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whom I believe, as always, has guided my hand with these writings for you. Amen.
PS Tell all your friends, and tell them to pass this on so that they too shall get to know and experience the joy and strength of getting to know our Lord Jesus Christ! Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Amen!
