“For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands” (1 Peter 3:5)
The world calls to you to become your own person. Step out there and tell the world what you think. The Lord calls for us to come and submit to Him. Do not think that things have changed. They have not. The Lord is calling us all out of this world of rebellion and into His reign of peace. He gives the peace that surpasses all understanding. Only in Him is there life, liberty, and peace.
Lord, I have believed the lies of the devil. I have followed the way of the world. I have sought for my way to be the way of things as I yell out my will to the world. It is all for naught. Guide me in the way of everlasting life so that I would look to You and follow as You direct me in the upward way of right living. Help me now and always to be guided by Your goodness and mercy and to humbly walk in this way.
Lord Jesus, You healed the sick and infirm and boldly proclaimed liberty for the captive. You have told us to follow You, for broad is the way of destruction. Guide me in the way to live and then help me to follow in the way You lead. My rebellious heart wants other things, but You have called me into the good things of salvation. Lead me in the better way. Help me to hear You when You guide me in the upward way You have set before me. Amen.
