Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. ~ Ephesians 5:17
I was listening to the radio the other day and heard a song that basically said without knowing God’s plan and without His help, I will go when I need to stay and stay when I need to go. That’s where we are—my husband and I—right now. We are following a path, one that we feel we should stay on, as all other doors are closed to us, right now. But the prayer in my heart, my deepest desire, is to understand the Lord’s will, so that I may follow it and be in it. When I say “understand,” I don’t mean that I need Him to answer me each time I ask, “why.” I guess to a certain degree, I want insight into this path, but mostly so I make sure I’m on the right road, going the right direction, for the right amount of time.
Father, today my prayer is that you would help me to be wise in the understanding of your will. I do not want to be known as foolish, but as wise concerning your desires for me. Father, above all else, my desire is to follow where you want me to go—to follow you. Please continue to show me the way, that I may follow you all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
