my value solely comes from Him.
As I meditated on these words, I thought about my life. Am I seeking my own plans, trying to fulfill the desires I have in this world? Better yet, does my life show I’m open to God’s direction, wherever that might lead me? I don’t want to just live a mediocre life. I want the best God has for me, not just the good things of this world..
Ready, Set, Reflect!
Stop for moment and think about the things that take up your time and focus. Where is God on that list? Where is the Word on that list? Where is rest on that list?
Lord, I thank You for always seeking what’s best for me. When I wonder off the path, You will not leave me out there wondering. You love me enough to continue to show me the way. Your love is enough!
John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
We can get placed on the right path….I often need redirection in my life and in my mind. At times, this happens quicker than I realize. I start thinking thoughts of judgements towards other people. I let anger rear its ugly head in situations I can’t control. It’s easy for me to let the what ifs and doubts speak louder than the truth of God. I let unforgiveness and worry consume me. The thoughts of my inadequacies easily overwhelm me. When I look in the mirror instead of seeing a precious child of God, I see flaws. That’s when I need to do a u-turn. I need a change of scenery. Redirection is a must. I need to stop in my tracks and run the other way. I need to turn to the truth of God. My thoughts need to be His thoughts. It’s not always easy, but it’s necessary.
Will you join me? What is God showing you at this very moment?
Ready, Set, Reflect!
As your walking along the way this week, don’t let every thought that tempts to take you down the wrong path have its way. Turn around quickly and go the other direction. Speak truth into every situation that goes against God’s truth. Seek a better way. Seek truth.
Thank You, Lord, for loving me so much. I don’t want to be stuck heading down the wrong path. Redirect my steps. I will follow.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path. Prov. 3:5-6
