My Way ... or His

Today's Scripture

"Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass." - Psalm 37:5 AMP.

Thoughts for Today

The Lord is our Banner. He wants us to stay under his banner to trust in him and his plan for our lives, to depend on him and trust him as our source of strength, as our protection. But so often we either get in an "I can do it myself" mode or determine that "I want to do it my way." When we do this, we step out from under God's banner of protection. Just as the Israelites began to experience failure every time Moses' arms dropped, so we will struggle needlessly when we choose to step out from under his banner.

Being under God's banner does not mean we won't have problems the Israelites still had to fight their battle. But it does mean that we don't have to face things alone and that God will work all things together for good and bring ultimate victory.

Consider this...

Is there some area in your life that you have determined you want to handle by yourself and do it your way? Perhaps you don't think that God cares about or completely understands your struggle. Or maybe you are determined to do it your way, even knowing that your way does not line up with God's plan.

The truth is God does care. He does understand. And his way, even if our desires conflict, is always the best way. Step back under his banner of love and protection. Submit to his plan. Let him help you. You will be glad you did.

Prayer : Our Loving Father, I thank you that you are my banner. Help me to walk under your banner and not succumb to self-will and pride, choosing my way over yours. Thank you for your love and protection and forgiveness. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
