Morning Cup of Joe – Thy Will, Not Mine

If you believe in a higher power it is imperative that you seek assistance from that power as often as you can. The assistance I speak of comes in the form of directions. For example, before you travel to a place you’ve never been before, you typically find, print and follow those directions. While many of us will blindly drive without directions and may eventually reach our destination, it is much simpler to find and/or ask for directions. God works the same way.

Understand that some destinations aren’t meant for you to travel to; that is implicitly why you haven’t been able to get there. Understand that God has a plan for your life and His plan will always trump yours. Some of you have tried to run from your calling and many others try to outright deny it. Some people are foolish enough to think that they are directing their own path. The sooner you realize that God is in control, the sooner you’ll reach the destination He has already planned for you. Let Him take the wheel.

Take a moment right now to choose to get out of your own way. Simply, don’t lose sight of who is directing your path. All you have to do is continue to walk and the signs will become clearer. Ask God to lead the way. One of the most difficult things to do is to transfer the power you thought you had to the one who had it all along; recognize who is in charge. I once heard that if you want to humor God, make plans. Do not be misled; I am not suggesting that you go through life without a plan. I am suggesting that you not try to force your plan into action, especially if all of the signs are pointing you in a different direction.

Get out of your own way and allow God to direct your path. Understand that His will must be done, not yours.

To The Top!
Joe Paul
