“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.” Proverbs 3:5-7
This morning I received notification that I had been invited to be interviewed for a stunning ministry leadership role. This is the sort of role that other people do, not something I could even imagine I am capable of, so I was quite shocked to be invited.
And then I read this amazing passage from Proverbs, and was reminded that it isn’t about what I think, my own understanding, or wisdom, but all about what God wants of me.
So my job is to focus on the Lord, to trust Him, to believe He will act in my life and to acknowledge how God is working in my life!
So let me do that now: God I praise you for this amazing interview and I pray that your will be done. I am ready to serve you God, ready to do whatever it is you have of me. And I know you are part of this God and I praise you for that!!
But I am also to fear the Lord and shun evil, which has been something God has been showing me for a few days now. I have this complete conviction to push away evil and sin and not allow it to have a hold on my life, to live for Jesus and not for me. But the part I know I need to work on big time is fearing the Lord.
To fear the Lord is not to be scared of God, but more about really understanding who I am in relation to God. Intellectually I know that God is awesome and mighty, but I want that realisation, that understanding to be ingrained in who I am, how I live my life. That increasingly I see my self worth through God; that I completely understand the world around me from a God perspective.
Praise you Lord for this awesome Word!
