“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20, NLT)
“So many people I meet want to know their future. In view of their suffering, frustrations, losses, and grief, they want something to believe in. I am learning to surrender my future to God.
As I experience God at work around me, no longer do I want a life based on possibilities and visions of chance, a life spent trying to make dreams come true. I want a God-planned and purposed-filled life. And I want others to experience the same. I want others to know that our loving God has something more for us than our own personal wants. He offers the reality of a living relationship with Himself and an abundant life filled with possibilities that we cannot begin to imagine.
Prayer: Father forgive me when I have my own agenda rather than following Your plan for my life. Thank You that those who follow You to the international field give up personal goals to share Christ with a lost world. Give me a passion to support their work with my prayers and resources, no matter the cost to my time or wallet. Amen.
