A mans heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9, NKJV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Oftentimes, God will use our experiences in life as stepping stones to prepare us for what He has in store next. Scripture tells us that Hell even take the things the enemy tries to bring against us and turn them around and use them for our good. He is always leading us on a journey of preparation.
Thats why its so important to keep our eyes focused on Him. We have to trust that when we are submitted to Himeven if we dont understandHe is ordering our steps. If something is not happening on your timetable, remind yourself, God knows what He is doing. He has my best interest at heart. God is preparing me. While youre waiting, dont make the mistake of trying to figure everything out. If youre constantly trying to figure things out, that will only frustrate you. Turn it over to God. Declare, God, my times are in Your hands. Im not going to worry because I trust that You are leading me on a journey of preparation for all the wonderful blessings You have in store for me.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I trust that You are leading and guiding me. I trust that You are preparing me for all the wonderful blessings You have in store for me in Jesus name. Amen.
