WILL YOU GIVE UP YOUR PLANS?………..
“I delight to do Your will, O my God,
And Your law is within my heart.”” Psalm 40:8………….
I had just begun taking a walk in the beautiful summer sunshine when I noticed a woman crying her heart out as she sat on the pavement beside what had been a major car accident. The police had come. Ambulance had come. Paramedics had come. Witnesses had come. Numerous people stood watching. But there she was on the side of it all crying, crying, crying.
The Lord led me right to her, and immediately I found myself with my arms wrapped around her, holding her, loving her, praying for her, ministering to her. Not just for a quick minute so I could rush back to my walk. But for as long as I felt the Lord keep me there. Talking, ministering, praying, encouraging, listening, not leaving until the Spirit of God gave me the okay to walk on.
ALL THE GLORY goes to the Lord. I am nothing more than His daughter, His servant, His vessel. And one of the most vital lessons I have learned about serving Jesus is this. Be ready at any given moment to give up your plans – to be available for His.
Those of us who believe in Jesus as Lord belong to Jesus as Lord, and our time, our hearts, and our lives, we are HIS. Forever! AMEN!
