Have it His Way- It's Way Better!
I used to pray for my day to go a certain way and when it didn’t, I would get so stressed. But, let’s start from before that time. I didn’t even pray for my day. I cast random prayers God’s way when it was convenient, but I didn’t really think of those prayers as being my bond with the all-powerful God. I did it out of obligation without a thought of how I am the one who needs it and that it is my lifeline. If even Jesus Himself prayed, what made me think I didn’t need to?
It changed during the time that I started to set aside time in the morning and then it started to infiltrate every part of the day.
The most exciting part is when my prayers turned to “Lord, I’d really love for things to go this direction, but if they don’t, I know You are doing something I’m not aware of. I trust You to take me where I need to go. If I need to grow in some area, I trust You. If I am needed to help someone that You have put in my path, I trust You.”
The liberation of going out into your day not feeling stressed out and in need of things to go the way you have hoped, is so amazing!
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
The world tells us to have it our way. The Word says to be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what is the most perfect and good plan—God’s will! I know that means we don’t always get what we want in those little moments, but if we trust that His Will is good, acceptable and perfect, then we don’t have to be stressed about it following Our substandard plan!
May you renew your mind today to see God’s hand in every moment of your day!
