Your Way or God's Way?

Your Way or God's Way?

“He guides the humble in what is right.” Ps 25:9 NIV

Did you hear about the old lady who earned a living by peddling her wares? Each day when she came to a certain intersection she would toss a stick up into the air. Whichever way the stick pointed when it landed, was the way she went. One day a man saw her tossing the stick into the air: once, twice, then three times. He asked, “What are you doing?” She said, “I’m letting God show me which way to go by using this stick.” Looking at her curiously, he said, “But why did you throw it up three times?” She replied, “Because the first two times He was pointing me in the wrong direction!” Hello! When you don’t like the direction God gives you, do you pray, hoping He will change His mind and tell you what you want to hear? If so, you have never exchanged your will for His! Jesus said: “I am the vine, you are the branches” (Jn 15:5 NKJV). Only as you stay “connected” to Christ will you bear fruit. Just as the life flows from the vine into the branches, so His power flows to you, then through you and begins to affect other areas of your life. The Psalmist said: “He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” God will show you what is “right” for you if you seek Him. Essentially, there are only two ways—His and yours! If you’re tired of doing things your way, get down on your knees and ask Him to show you how to do them His way.
