Daily Devotional: Above Your Heart Desires
Memorise: There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord , that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21 KJV
Read: Isaiah 55:8-11
The Lord’s portion and plans for your life far outweighs your personal desires, goals and dreams. He says in Isaiah 55:8, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. The Lord has better arrangements for your destiny than your earthly goals and pursuits. His plans are unique and will surely lead you to rest and promised land. If you can discover the arrangement of your heavenly Father through divine counsel, you will be totally free from every rat race on the earth.
His thoughts and plans are simply beautiful to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11. There’s nothing you will compare to the counsel of the Lord. I encourage you to be careful with your desires that are not centered on God’s design for your life. It’s highly recommended you discover divine purpose over your dreams and aspirations to avoid earthly frustrations. Any journey that is void of divine approval will eventually end in total frustration. That’s why you must have observed the pains that people are going through on their jobs, marriage, relationships and even in ministry. Except you are guided by the Lord, labour without favour will be the order of the day. I encourage you to seek divine counsel if you want a journey that is coloured with peace and success. Surrender your plans to the Almighty and wait for his approval before launching into the deep. You won’t run and invest in vain in Jesus’ mighty name.
Pray with me: Father, please open my heart to receive your counsel and refrain me from every rat race on the earth. I refuse to be frustrated in the journeys of life in Jesus’ name.
