There are times in my life when I am frustrated and unsure of how to respond to reach my desired outcomes. Throughout our lives, we need to prepare for situations, respond to events, and search for answers. While these all may seem like different tasks, there is a common thread that can guide our actions. As George Herbert said, "Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night."
We need direction and guidance in our lives. Whether we are making decisions, preparing for situations, responding to events, or searching for answers, we should turn to God. We can turn to God in prayer. We can begin our day with prayer. We can end our day in prayer. We should also pray throughout the day, asking God for wisdom in all that we do and in all the ways we serve Him. As we pray, we should also watch and listen for God. We can then respond through our words and actions, with thankful hearts and faith in Him!
Pray to God. Watch and listen for Him and then be thankful as you act on His wisdom!
Thank You for allowing me to talk to You and for Your response. Help me to always listen and hear Your guidance and wisdom. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
