Morning Prayer Monday, October 26, 2020 – REDIRECT ME LORD
Father God, thank You for all the times when You have redirected my life to get me to the place You need me to be or to help in my spiritual growth. Amen
"Keep steady my steps according to Your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me." Psalm 119:133
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. Psalm 16:
"We don't realize it but God is in control of every step we take." You know, there are times when I head out on a certain path during the day, that I am determined to follow, and suddenly, the path drops off and my plans get redirected. Let me give you an example. Someone plans a get together and from what they are telling you, it will be a jumping. In your spirit, you are hearing, don't go but some of your closest besties will be there, so how can you stay away, right? Now you have a speaking engagement a few days later which you need to prepare for but you decide to just pull an all night to get ready for it. It will be okay. Hyped about the party, you go out and buy a cute outfit. You are ready to go. Two days before the party, you get a text message, "Event cancelled until further notice." Sometimes, when these redirects happen, you can't help but look up and laughing. That was nobody but God's doing. If I can't be responsible, He will be responsible for me. God will not allow us to short-change His people because of something we shouldn't be doing anyway. If I am going to stand up for God, it has to be done in excellence. Half-stepping is not allowed. What I am most grateful for are the times when God has redirected my life. It needed to be done. It's called saving me, from me. He will not always do it but sometimes when we are on a path that will substract from someone else's life, He will redirect us to get us where He needs us to be. With no plans, you now pull out the books and prepare for your speaking engaement. What I hope and pray Lord, is in those times when You have redirected my life, I learned from it.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
