2 Chronicles 6:30, 31  “Give your people what their actions deserve, for you alone know each human heart. Then they will fear you and walk in your ways as long as they live in the land you gave to our ancestors.” (NLT)

Two short-sighted, ill-considered statements: “I want what I deserve” and “I will do what I want to do no matter what.” These declarations show how we are not as good or as smart as we think we are.

King Solomon prayed, “Give your people what their actions deserve, for you alone know each human heart. Then they will fear you and walk in your ways as long as they live in the land you gave to our ancestors.” Our just deserts ([https://bit.ly/3I5oVOK] ) are not nearly as savory as we would prefer. We learn to walk along God’s better pathways when we make our own way one time too many. 

Gratefully, our Father’s correcting hand is as gentle as possible and as firm as necessary. Long walks with God are not marked with detours or unnecessary delays. They are instead timely, thoughtful, reflective, and thrilling. They are characterized by adventure and joy. Perspective is shaped on those paths. Possibilities are magnified step by step. Hope reserves are filled full to overflowing. 

Two well-considered statements to reorient our lives are, “I want what You want for me” and “I will do what you want when you want it done.” Obedience is unburdening our souls of unhelpful baggage in exchange for gifts God gives when we need what only he can provide.

I will seek God’s will and ways over the course of all of my days.

Our Father, your will, your way, this is trust, this I pray. Amen.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
