Jeremiah 9 23-24 “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in this, that he understands and knows Me”.
Amen and amen!!!!!! Do not glory in the strength of your own might, do not seek to go after your own wisdom of your calling but always seek God’s Holy calling according to Stormie in the power of a praying woman always surrender what you think God has called you to first. Surrendering it to him means he has control, this is something I too am still learning but I know that when I surrender my way to his, what can’t he do? What can’t he lead me to? As I read Stone’s words it inspired me to give God control over everything, my dreams and even the dreams I feel that he wants for me, just give it over becaus your life is not your own at the end of the day.
It isn’t always easy submitting what you want to give it over to what God wants but always remember you’re giving it to the Lord of your life who knows and sees every single thing that Is best for you. If he is Lord of your life then let him be, and if he knows what is best, I wouldn’t want to give it to anyone else.
Another thing; be faithful in the little things, God is watching how you handle them
Prayer: Dear God according to your word help us as Paul has stated that “Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.” Help us to live this scripture out through our lives, and fully completely live the life you have called us to in surrender. We surrender to you, we admit it can be hard but we KNOW your way is better any how so we give you it because you are our LORD AND we are not. So we surrender our dreams for ourselves and the dreams you have for us to you and we ask that you transform our way into your will for our lives in Jesus name we pray amen.
Ephesians 4:1-4 NLT
Task: Together, you and I, let’s lay our dreams at God’s feet every single dream we have mapped and laid out place it down. He is in control. Let us write them down if we have to and place them on the alter of surrender and sacrifice. When we learn to let go we have stepped into the heart of surrender. Let’s do that today and this week, every thought we have that we desire first give it to God and tell him to have his way in it. Let’s listen and be sensitive to his nudge and his guiding as he gives us peace and directs our hearts to what he wants instead, and if what you’ve laid down is the direction he wants you in remember you are serving him first and not the dream so allow him to let it be done his way not your own.
