Everything about yesterday was different than I had thought. The person I’d hope to talk to wasn’t even at church. Somehow I knew from that I should leave it until today and meet with them in person. I’m going to set this later this morning. The scripture comes to mind in Matthew 18:15 about confronting your “brother” between you and him. This will be the focus of this visit.
This morning in my scripture reading in Psalms 40:6, It says, “Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them: You have given me the capacity to hear and obey….” Joyce Meyer says in a caption she wrote, “God’s plan is not hard, we make it hard…. If you want God’s will for your life, I can give you the directions in their simplest form: Pray and Obey. God has given you the capacity to do both.”
I loved reading this in the Psalms and then reading Joyce’s response to it. I could write my own! How much I have learned about my need to quit wanting God to obey my wants and instead, learning to obey what He wants. In so doing, I find the greatest rewards, the greatest satisfaction, the greatest peace within. How Good God Is when we learn to Pray and Obey.
