God’s ways are progressively becoming my ways and they are simplifying my life so that I can be an observer of what He is doing.
By surrendering to Him in every circumstance and responding in obedience as He guides me, moment by moment, I am able to live in unbroken communion with Him. His peace and joy are like a continuous spring of fresh water that brings the serenity and strength I need to sustain me.
Whenever I resist what the Lord is doing and take matters into my own hands, I lose His perspective and my thoughts begin to run wild. The absence of His peace and joy makes me feel weak and vulnerable. I begin to create imaginary walls of protection that hinder me from being an observer of His activity.
I pray for courage to face my life situations in the simplicity and power of His Spirit, continually mindful that He is always present.
