The people of Israel are God’s chosen. This makes me contemplate the idea God has set some people apart for his purposes. So it follows that if we have given up our will to follow Christ then God has a purpose and plan for our life.  

The following from the verses.in 2 Chronicles chapter 32 gives me great comfort: “Do not be afraid or discouraged, greater with us is the Lord our God to help us and fight our battles.”
These bible verses remind us how important it is to include God in our decisions–to ask Him for His input and trust that if you search for His will He will guide you in your decision.

  1. Micah 6:8 shows a contrast between our preferences and God’s preferences. We think it’s better, more fulfilling, more worthy to bring large or expensive gifts or difficult achievements to God as sacrifices. And God isn’t fooled: these sorts of “sacrifices” are primarily ways we show off before others. What God really wants is for each of us “to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God”. Ouch. Especially that “humbly” part. In fact, what God wants is so difficult for us that we each need a radical change. Paul called it “being conformed to the image of Christ.”

  2. II Kings 18:31 & Isaiah 36:16 “Do not listen to Hezekiah. This is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me. Then each of you will eat fruit from your own vine and fig tree and drink water from your own cistern.
    Father, so often I have believed the lie that I can save myself, that I have the strength & wisdom to pull myself out of a pit & supply my own needs. The voice of the king of Assyria is heard today making empty, deceitful promises, telling us that we are god & advising us to follow the ways of the world. Father, I choose this day to walk humbly with You. Thank You that You will help me, especially with that humbly part because I forget so easily. You ARE greater than the lure of the enemy. Thank You for Your patience, Your mercy and the grace to keep me on Your path. Amen.
