Thought Of the Day

I told You my plans...
and... you answered.
Now teach me Your decrees...

Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing Your instructions.

Ps. 119:26,29 NLT

How silly I am with God sometimes... most of the time... I rattle off my plans to Him... I do my asking, seeking & knocking... He kindly listens... and He kindly answers, but often not the way I might expect or hope for...

And so I'm faced with the gravity of His will... His will- not my own- will ultimately prevail.
Am I willing to lay down my own expectations for the privilege of knowing His ways? Or will I spend my energies kicking & ranting before finally surrendering?
