I’m pretty confident in things I am doing but to be completely honest with myself there are times when I am really not sure what I am doing nor what to do when I don’t know what to do.
Today’s verses for the day are a great reminder for me…
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father.
He loves to help.
You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it.
Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.
People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.
James 1:5-8 MSG
Either worry or pray but don’t do both.
Living for God is not something I ‘do’ it is who I am. As I focus on being in Him & His Spirit living in me I am less concerned about ‘doing’ and submitted to just ‘being’.
I honestly don’t understand all God’s plans but there is one thing I must do, hold onto His hand.
We can’t know what today or tomorrow holds but we can hold the hand that can.
We don’t know what the future holds but we know who holds the future.
the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.
For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering.
We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.
We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope for it. But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.)
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.
For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.
And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
Romans 8:21-27 NLT
Hope is opposition and opportunity
