But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you. 1 Peter 5:10
Isn’t it wonderful to know that the works of God are perfect? That God’s ways are perfect? And His will is perfect? Now, someone reading this may think, “But I don’t know about God’s will. I don’t want to give myself completely to Him or He might send me to a remote desert as a missionary.”
Let’s set the record straight. God’s will is not so much something you surrender to as it is something you’re allowed to get in on. God will choose for you what you would choose for yourself if you had enough sense to choose it!
Let your prayer today be, “Help me, Lord, not to fear what I’ll miss if I do Your will; help me to fear what I’ll miss if I don’t.”
