“Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” (James 4:15)
The Lord is Lord and He knows our days. In prayer, in plans, in all things, be guided by the goodness and mercy of the Lord and submit to His preparation of your soul for heaven. There is much that needs to be done and He will do what needs to be done. Your plans should always include the need to submit to the Lord’s will. There is only One for whom you should be working.
Lord, You know I need a change of attitude. Guide me according to Your will to see through the fog of this age and to look to You in, for, and through all things. Indeed, we pray: may Your will be done in me here on earth as it shall be in heaven. Lead me toward this heavenly goal so that I may now and always be led by You and look for Your will to be done in my life. Guide me, dear Lord, into the future You know is coming.
Lord Jesus, God in the flesh, You knew where Your earthly life would end. You were heading to the cross. You knew because You are God. Lead me to move into the future You intend for me because I know You, the One who knows all things. Guide me in the grace You give to live according to the many promises You have given me. Lead me this day as I ask for the Father’s will to be done in me. Amen.
