God's Will

Oh how the enemy robs me
When I fail to yield to Godís will

When I want what I wantÖin my timing
Unwilling to wait upon the Lord

When I plan my ways according to my will
But the Lord directs my steps elsewhere

Then anxiety fills my heart and mind
The peace of God evades me

When I try to manipulate circumstances
Unwilling to admit they are far beyond my control

When I stand in judgment of people
Who just donít cooperate and mess up my plans

Then frustration and anger reigns
Consumes my every thought

When I donít trust that God is good
Unless He answers my prayers in the manner I deem best

When my prayers are orders
Instead of a humble petition to omnipotent God

Then I raise myself up
In place of God

Oh Lord, give me the mind of Christ
Help me to die to self daily, pick up my cross and follow You

Put me in the refinerís fire
Consume any wicked way that remains in me

Help me to wait upon You Lord
With confident assurance all Your ways are good

Recently I was reminded of a time in my lifeÖwhen I wasnít yielded to Godís will. Some of that struggle went on after I became a Christian. Praise GodÖHe keeps on whittling away at my sinfulness and conforming me into the image and likeness of Christ. Itís an ongoing work this side of heaven.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
