Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye on you.
Is God's will for your life, your will for your life? If not, it should be!
Believe it or not, as much as we think that we know what we need and what is best for us, WE DO NOT KNOW. If we did, Jesus would not have had to come to earth and died for us.
God has knowledge that no one else in the universe has. Let's not take my word for it, let's check the book called the "BIBLE".
Isaiah 55:8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
God alone is God and He does not need help from man. He uses man for His glory but He does not need man. We need Him!
There is a powerful song that is sung by Jessica King called "Keep me in your will".
We do not know what is best for us, only God knows that!
Let's listen to the lyrics of this song that should speak to the heart of ALL of us concerning the will of God for our lives. Her prayer to God is to "keep her in His will" so she won't be in the way of what He is trying to do in and through her life.
This song drives home the point of "self will" vs the "will of God" for ALL of our lives. This lyrics to this song describes ALL of us.
Sometimes I think I'm in control And I act so foolishly Facing problems on my own I don't know what's best for me My mistakes at times disturb All the plans You have made Lord keep me in Your will So I won't be in Your way
Put me where You want to and NOT where I want to be. If I should ask for things I want give me what I need.
When I complain from time to time Forgive me, Lord I pray.
Keep me in Your will so I won't be in Your way. Remind me Lord, I'm just a glove In which You place Your hands. Not my will but Yours be done.
The best laid plans I've made somehow always go astray. Lord keep me in Your will So I won't be in Your way.
I need you dear Lord each and every single day to keep me in Your will So I won't be in Your way.
Keep me in your will Lord so I won't be in the way of your "work" that you have begun in me and promises to complete until you return.
People of God is the will of God for you life is where you want to be? If you answered yes, ask Him to "keep you in His will so you too won't be in His way."
If we stay in the will of God for our lives He promises to not only instruct us and teach us in the way we you should go, but, to keep His eyes upon us also.
Lord, keep me in Your will so I won't be in your way!
God is the greatest teacher and guide instructor. There is none like Him nor will there ever be one like Him. He is the Sovereign God of the universe!
Thank you Lord for keeping me in your will.
