What is the most urgent thing that you would like to accomplish if you are given a chance to live your life once again?
It may be that you're facing an illness or a life threatening situation from a bad accident. In this instance, how would you live your life and what is the top priority thing that you would like to do?
We all have dreams, and our aspirations and motivations in life would mean that we would like to accomplise our life goals in the most shortest time period. However, if time is not on our side and we need to determine what we need to do now for our future, what would that be?
If you don't know your dreams and goals, I would suggest that you get on your knees before the Lord and began to seek Him for your future. We need our Master's touch to allow Him to guide and direct our paths, as He is the Author and the finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2. God knows our future best, and if we were to walk in an intimate relationship with Him, He will direct our paths according to His perfect plans for us. Proverbs 3:5-6 says that we are to trust God with all our hearts and not lean in our own understanding, but in all our ways we are to acknowledge Him and He will direct and guide our paths.
In Jeremiah 29:11 it says that God has a plan for us and His ways and plans are good and not for evil, to give us a future and a hope. Have you submit your plans to the Lord for whatever dreams that you are nurturing right now. In Proverbs 16:1 it says that the plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. Yes, God will direct and guide your path if you were to surrender all your plans to Him. In John 15:4 it admonishes us to abide in God so that we can accomplish all that we set our hearts to do; for without Him we can do nothing.
Spend time in prayer and seek God while there is still time, unless night comes and you are unable to work. John 9:4. The Lord desires that we seek Him diligently so that we can find Him. Hebrews 11:6. God knows your heart. He knows what you are going through and He wants to embrace you and tell you that you are safe in His arm. The thing is, you must draw near to Him so that He can draw nite to you. He longs to embrace you and you need to acknowledge Him for Him to do that.
What is troubling you right now? Seek no further, the answer is found in Jesus. As you give your heart to Him, He will mend it and make you whole again. Entrust yourself to Him and watch your faith grow as you reach out to Him and cry out to Him for help. He will meet your needs and you just have to pour out to Him your situations and circumstances. He is near as you stretch out your hand to touch Him.
