Week 4: I Trust in Your Purpose, Lord
One of the expectations that Jesus has for us as believers is that we surrender our own desires for His purpose. No matter how many maps we design in our hearts, it is God who orders our steps.
He is asking us to trust Him with our purpose, to lean on Him and know that He can clearly see the path laid before us, even when we are unsure of our next step.
Trust in the Lord will all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Lord, You promise to make the crooked places straight. You have ordered my steps and designed a purpose that allows me to be exactly who You’ve called me to be. Hep me to answer that call with a resounding affirmation as I gratefully, humbly, and expectantly wait for You to fulfill Your purposes in and through my life. Lord, You are my shepherd and my guide, help me to hear You when You call, believing that You have planned for me even more than I could ask or imagine.
