Hurricane Harvey Relief:   Help Here

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.

When we talk about being a new creation, there is a new way we have to live life as well as listen. I think no one captures it quite as well as Janelle Colligan. I’m going to quote her today:

“I feel like a lot of times we tell The King what we want and we expect Him to grant our wish. We sandwich our desires around the mindset, “Well it’s a good thing, so it must be what The King wants” or “He will give us the desires of our heart.” When He doesn’t give us what we want or what we think He wants, we become angry and bitter. We need to be constantly asking The King what He wants. What do You want from my life? I never wanted to move to Texas. In fact I told Brian I’d follow him anywhere – But Texas. I’m so glad I asked and listened to The King. Our lives here have been better than I ever could have imagined. So today, what do you want from The King?”

  1. Ask God today: What do You want from my life?
  2. Today what do you want from The King?
  3. Have you ever had an experience where God was asking you to do something different than what you wanted?
