“My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism” (James 2:1).
It is not about you. None of this is about you. That you are aware and realize that some things are important and others are not is God’s gift to you. But you did not choose when, where, or in what circumstances to be born. You are here and you have the opportunity to look to the Lord and ask of Him why He created you and what purpose He would like you to fulfill.
Lord, You are the only One who knows all things. In your hands are the answers to all questions and the truth of creation. Help me to learn, Lord, and to live into this life You have given me, doing what You would have me do. Lead me to understand that we are whom we are and that our circumstances are as you have allowed them to be. In Your hands are all things and in You is all hope.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the captives into liberty. You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life. Guide me according to Your purposes to live into the true life which is mine through grace. Help me to overcome the obstacles of thinking this world’s circumstances are too difficult so that I may be at peace, now and always abiding in You. Amen.
