Heavenly Father, Creator of the heavens and earth. May Your peace, grace, and mercy cover us, may You love be sufficient for us. Keep the forces of evil restrained as we seek Your guidance and correction. Continue to help us as we lead those who may not know You or seeking You, may we be Your servants and a light to their path, that we bring honor and glory to Your name and the sacrifices Jesus made for our sins, that we encourage each other, lifting their spirit and praise Your Holy name. I pray this in the Precious and Holy name of Jesu Christ. Good devotion, just what I needed today with discouraging thoughts racing between my ears, where all of my problems lie in waiting and lying to myself. God is in total control, He carries us in the palm of His hand and directs our paths.

Amen.. I Trust You Lord I have surrendered over and over again I give up all control and I asked for you to just continually guide me... I do not know what's best for myself and even if I try to fix it it all just blows up in my face so her father I'm asking for you to continue the order my footsteps

Amen! Deal with this struggle with so many of my clients. Satan loves it when he can get us into the fixing mode, especially when the focus is on fixing someone else. God has promised He will "do a good work" in us if we will trust in him.

Precious Lord, we come to You today asking that You give us the wisdom to step back when we face a difficult situation and give it to You. Many times we get into our fixer and doer mode and forget it’s all in Your hands. Let us show love and compassion, but not try to do Your job. We are so woefully equipped to do Your job. It’s all a puzzle to us Father, but clear as day to You. Give us the wisdom, strength, and courage to trust You. All glory to You Father. Praying to the one that has the whole world in His hands, Jesus Christ. Amen.

This morning n prayer I asked God's forgiveness as I forced myself to praise in gratitude. I did my best when I prayed for those in my life though I truly didn't feel it. I spoke the truth of God's word though it didn't ring true. I stood and took the first of many steps forward today when my being wants only to turn and hide. I will obey and trust that accepts my poor offering this morning. May He place me within the mosaic of the kingdom where and how he wants. Amen and bless you brothers with His freedom.

Yes glory to GODin the highest! HE who control the world on its axis is the One who I must allow to keep my life in on a steady course. More of GOD'S placement and less of mine.

DAY 286: Putting It All Together

 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 
~ Romans 8:28

Facing a difficult task? Looking for an answer to your situation? Take a breather. Often, we guys want to jump ahead of God and begin "fixing" things when it isn't our job.

Remember, God is the puzzlemaster and He will assemble the pieces of your situation made up from those who love Him. 

What you can't control is other people and situations. What you can control is your responses and your emotions.

Today, focus on being the best you can be - love God first and He will call upon your talents to complete His work in you, around you, and through you.
