Embracing God’s Supreme Agenda – Steadfast and Protected - Friday, March 13th
Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until destruction passes by. I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me. He will send from heaven and save me …. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! Psalm 57:1-3A, 7
Today's thoughts from today's verses:
So, whatever adversity we find ourselves facing and contending with, God awaits to be a gracious covering to us until it passes by. God is the One Who accomplishes all things for us as he guards us through his protecting presence from alternative worldly agendas. Our lives will become what they were meant to be as He is free to pour out His love into our hearts and He is given free reign to provide for us and do His work on our behalf. This will necessitate that we choose the supreme agenda God has for us over the agenda we think will make for a good and successful life. However, it will take the power of heaven for this to happen. Once we make this choice through God’s enabling power, he will make our life here on earth a true success. As God’s power works for us in this way we will, like David, proclaim, “My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!
Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:
Lord, thank you for protecting me from myself and my propensity to rely upon alternative ways of managing my life in the middle of the onslaught of the world. I fully embrace you and your supreme agenda and know it begins with my prayer life where I consistently come before you and commune with you intimately. I seek you in this way now, Lord, knowing that everything you have in mind for my life today will wonderfully flow from my intimate connection with you. I choose to go forward steadfastly on this promised land path valuing it more than anything and everything the world has to offer. Amen!
