Devotion for Monday, June 22, 2020

“Therefore, I was not vacillating when I intended to do this, was I? Or what I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, so that with me there will be yes, yes and no, no at the same time? But as God is faithful, our word to you is not yes and no” (2 Corinthians 1:17-18).

We make plans according to the flesh. The Lord has His will which shall come to pass. In your thinking, recognize that the will of the Lord is always first. The unbelievers complain when things do not go their way. The faithful know that in the twists and turns of life, the Lord is working all things together according to His purpose. Trust in the Lord above all things.

Lord, let my yes be yes and my no be no. When my final answer is not Your final answer, help me to see that You are Lord above all things. Let me never put words in your mouth, but listen and speak what You tell me. Through all things, keep my eyes clear, my heart pure and Your will supreme. You are faithful above all things and in You alone is all hope and a future.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You have come and that in You there is hope and life. Guide me into the new life You give that I would be a person of prayer. Teach me to see more clearly, love more dearly, and wait upon You for guidance in all things. You, Lord, are the One who is saving those who trust in You. Lead me, Lord, and I will follow. Teach me and I will learn to obey. Amen.
