Lately, the prayer of my heart has been the same words that Mary, the mother of Jesus proclaimed in Luke 1:38: "Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to Your Word." In order for you and I to live according to God's Word and truly be His servant, we are going to have to lay down our plans and visions and hand them over them for His.
I’m currently reading through the Bible,… Abraham in Genesis. What struck me about his life (aside from His great faith) was his ability to surrender his life's plans to God. The Lord called him out of his country, his land and his family to a place that God would show him. Imagine all of the plans and ideas about his life that Abraham had to lay down into order to obey the Lord.
Most people don't want to surrender their plans and visions for their lives to God because they have everything already mapped out. But I'm realizing that even the grandest plans that I have laid out pale in comparison to what God has planned for me.
