Let God Lead You

Proverbs 20 24.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 20:24

A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.  How then can anyone understand their own way?

 

God is at work in your life and is directing your steps for His purpose.  You may be going through a hard time, but if you are faithful and obedient even when you don’t understand where He’s leading you, eventually, you will see the fruits of your labor.

Your Purpose

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do the good works, which God prepared in advanced for us to do.

 

God put a desire in your heart for a purpose that He planned long ago. Step out in faith and ask God for guidance and direction to fulfill your God given dreams.  Don’t let doubt or the devil keep you from being all you can be for the Lord.

For His Purpose

Romans 6 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:13

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

 

If you are born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you’ve been set free you can now offer your whole self, both body and soul to God to be used for His purpose.  Devote yourself to God and to His service for His purpose.

Sing During Prayer
