Sometimes it is hard for me to pray since I am aware that I will have to change things. This requires strength or at least a wish to change.
To give up your plans and accept the God’s plan is a great adventure.
I was richly rewarded each time I have listened to God’s voice and followed His plan – with new challenges, new grace and wonderful joy.
However, I find myself constantly between choosing to follow Him or to retreat to my own little place, according to my visions and wishes.
I found myself in same situation yesterday but then I remembered these words from the Bible:
I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering. (Jr 29,11)
What joy is to have a Father who knows my further path and His promise of a prosperous future for me.
When I am overwhelmed by discouragement, disappointment or sadness, this is a word that inspires me to listen to the Lord. It always strengthens me for taking new steps, fills me with renewed power and enthusiasm.
Sit in front of your Lord and listen what He has to tell you about his plans for you and your future.
If you carry too much of the unsaid inside you, trust Him your worries first, your visions and your expectations. Do not be afraid to express anger and sadness.
He will be able to absorb all your feelings. This is part of the plan, a plan to heal and to stay in touch with God.
He is not a tyrant, but the Father who longs for you and knows you better than you know yourself.
Now you can sincerely ask Him about His plans for you.
Let us pray together:
Lord, thank You, because You have the best and perfect plan for me. I wish to take life the way You offer it to me. Lord, I commend You my life. You know how incomplete I am. Help me go through all internal barriers, perceptions and challenges that stop me from being obedient to You. Send me Your Holy Spirit to strengthen me and give me strength to fulfill Your will. Send me people who will encourage me on this path and strengthen my faith and trust in You.
Thank You, Lord, for all You do inside me, and I praise You for Your love and power! For Your gift of a new life and a plan in which I enter … (thank the Lord for everything you can think of.)
Lord, I thank You for new hope that You brought into my life. Amen.
