“And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons” (1 Corinthians 12:5-6).
The Lord created each person according to His purpose. We are not all the same, nor are we to imagine anything other than that we are to be conformed to the image of Christ. Do not be deceived, it is the Lord who builds the house. If it is not the Lord, then it is in vain. Come into the Lord’s presence and be led by the Holy Spirit that you may live a life that is pleasing to the Lord.
Lord, we so often want to categorize things and make plans. Help me to return today and every day to You that I may be led as You lead. Guide me that I may walk in Your purpose and live as You have designed me to live. May I no longer resist Your direction, but come willingly into Your presence and dwell with You and You with me. Help me to hear and obey that I would learn to be faithful.
Lord, guide me according to Your eternal plan which You have revealed by grace and through faith. Enlighten me by the power of Your Spirit that I may grow in the grace You have given me. In all things, may I see that it is You who works all things together according to Your purpose and live into the life to which You have called me, doing all this to Your glory. Amen.
