Recently I was praying for some important needs to be met. I prayed that they would be met according to God’s Will. But I think we should take it back one or two steps. If I have turned my will and my life over to the care of God, then I turned my needs over to God. I no longer should pray that my needs be met, but rather ask for a knowledge from God about what needs he plans fulfill.
It is a dynamic switch in thinking. We are open vessels for God to use. All the worrying and greed will slip away. Peace and serenity will begin to take over our mind. I am not trying to imply that we will become zombies.
What I am talking about is an overall signing over of ownership of my life to God. I then come to God not to ask but to submit to His Guidance. We are now caretakers of our lives. We are trusted stewards of God.
Then if I want that relationship or possession, I can come to God and ask for His Guidance. Then we don’t have to worry, but we can be of service to God and others.
