i really appreciate it when the daily blessing e-mails line up so well with what i’ve just encountered in the Word unintentionally. God tries to speak to us all day, every day. Lord, give me spiritual ears to hear You. in Jesus’ name, Amen.
ecclesiastes 9:1 “so i reflected on all this and concluded that the righteous & the wise & what they do are in God’s hands, but no man knows whether love or hate awaits him.”
Trust: Responding to the Holy Spirit
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13
God wants you to trust his guidance, so he sent you a Guide.
When you became a believer, God placed the Holy Spirit within you, and he’s been teaching you ever since to listen and respond to the Holy Spirit’s counsel. The Holy Spirit is your Guide, one who walks with you along the way. He knows every step of the journey and understands the blessings and dangers ahead. He knows where you’ve been and where you’re going, and he knows the best path to take.
This is an important issue to understand, because God never intended for you to figure out the steps of your journey without him. In truth, how you get on mission and how you succeed at your mission are God’s responsibilities. Your responsibility is to seek his guidance and obey his directions.
Your job is to trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. His job is to set your path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). You don’t have to know the reason for everything, and there’s no requirement that you figure it all out before you complete your mission. You just need to trust and obey.
