Father, I thank You for being above me and knowing what is best for me. I know You love me and have plans for me. But sometimes I am overwhelmed by the thought of my future. Show me how to walk forward one day at a time.
I know that in this life, we are all searching for our purpose and asking for Your will to be done. But let us not be blindsided and naive to think that as we ask, so we are ready for it to be revealed and respond accordingly. I pray that as each of us comes to a point in our lives where we dare to ask You to reveal Your will for us, You would put us in a place of acceptance of what You reveal to us. It may not be what we want, but it will surely be what we need in order to live a life fully invested in You.
When fear attempts to consume us, be the destroyer of the fear by Your perfect love for we know it casts out all fear. When you see that we are tempted to turn back and ignore Your will, chasten our spirits and helps us to see that You only want the best for us. Help us to realize that anything You bring into our lives and anything You reveal to us is for our good. Give us a spirit of acceptance and a heart open to Your move in our lives. Let us always desire to be with You above all things. Seeking Your kingdom first and letting everything else be added afterwords. Letting Your love surround us and cast out any fear or doubts. Help us to live in love with You, accept Your will for our lives and give us the proper response to Your revelation.
I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9
