I smile every time this happens. It simply boggles my mind, just how quickly God seems to respond, when I inquire of Him what He would like to say through these prayers. Yesterday morning, as I was on the road doing my thing, and she was en route to her destination, we were discussing a number of matters over the phone... talking through different scenarios and kicking around options. Neither one of us having clarity as to the direction we should take or even consider taking, should some clarity actually be revealed.
It seemed, later in the morning, that I had a simultaneous confession; that I had no idea what to write for today's prayer, nor had had I any idea for this conversation we had.
In that moment, I prayed for a fresh perspective.
To which, I felt God reply; you aren't the only one.
It's hard at times, to continue on the path that's in front of you and to handle with grace and confidence what you have here and now, while seeking clarity and direction as to whether you should be on a different path or take a different path, should one intersect with you life.
It gets even harder, on larger scales; where more lives are not only involved, but also at stake. Such as corporations, organizations... and ministry. While we figure out what works for this family, deacons and church leaders are struggling with not only their own homes, but decisions and the direction of their churches. They too are in need of fresh vision, fresh insight, fresh wisdom. Confidence for today and clarity for tomorrow.
Pray, this #deaconThursday, that God would give a fresh perspective for the decisions and challenges they face. Pray that there would indeed, be a confidence for today and clarity for tomorrow.
For the glory of God.
