Your children can run from you, their upbringing, from church, but they can never run from your prayers. Therefore, keep on asking, seeking, and knocking! James 5:16 says, “…….The effective prayers of a righteous man [PARENTS] can accomplish much.”

Fall To Your Knees

Ain’t nothing wrong with falling to your knees and telling God that you need Him and that you can’t do life on your own! If you want to change in your life, if you want forgiveness and peace and joy that you’ve never known before, God demands your total surrender. Job 11:13-15 says, “Surrender your heart to God, turn to him in prayer, and give up your sins—even those you do in secret. Then you won’t be ashamed;

you will be confident and fearless.”

Commandeer The Vehicle (Vessel)!

Stop thinking that you have complete control over your life. Yes, we all have free ‘WILL’ but it’s God’s ‘WILL’ that prevails (Proverbs 19:21)! The Message Bible paraphrase of Matthew 16:24 hit the nail on the head: “Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?” Similar to Paul’s assertion in Romans 8:38-39, I too am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing is worth the measure of my soul in Christ Jesus. I have said it before and I will say it again; “I don’t want Jesus to take the wheel, rather, I desire that he commandeers the entire vehicle (vessel)!”

God is Open……

The government may be closed but God, the Ruler of all and every government known and unknown, seen and unseen is always open! So, stay focus and continue to pray for our leaders in Washington, in every State, and in every City!

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour….

— 1 Timothy 2:1-3

It is the VINE that produce the fruit not the BRANCH!

Jesus said in John 15:5, “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”

Look Higher….Think Higher…….

Isaiah 55:8 declares, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.” Wow, I love to remember that God’s thoughts, plans, ways, methods, and strategies are infinitely higher and greater than my own. They are better in every way. They take me by surprise. They go where I could have never dreamed. They are accomplished in ways that surpass any and all expectations that I ever had. So if you’re reading this message, God unequivocally still has a greater plan and purpose for your life. We may not see it from our limited vantage point, but trust that God sees the whole story, not just the page in history we sit in!

My Plans Are His Plans

God gives us the freedom and responsibility to make plans. And yet, God relates the decisions we make to our future. However, this is not a reason to be passive or fatalistic, but rather it is an encouragement that you can rest assured that God is in ultimate control of your life. You need not be frozen in a state of indecision. You can trust that God will work out everything for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). Simply put, I am not the boss of me! I’ve learned to put GOD in charge of my work so that whatever I plan becomes grafted into the fabric of His plan, purpose, and promise for my life (Proverbs16:3).

Pray with me:

Lord God, thank you that you are the sovereign Lord and that you control the events of history. Forgive me, Lord, for the times when I have perhaps known I am on the wrong path but have tried to manipulate my way. Help me always to stay in line with your plans, will, and purpose. May all my plans be your plans, and may these plans succeed and bring you glory and honor. In Jesus’ name, amen and amen!
