Pastor Grace welcomes YOU warmly today!


James 1:
5 If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of good judgement to all who ask him; he will not resent it.
6 But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to tell you, for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind;
7 and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way and then that. If you don't ask with faith, don't expect the Lord to give you any solid answer.
(adapted from The Living Bible)

Today let us consider our need for a bountiful supply of good judgement.
Maybe in past years, you have been mistaken in some of the decisions you have made concerning the direction you should take in life, or in deciding how you should relate to those close to you, especially in your family.

From now on, you need to change your focus from yourself, to the Lord,
when making crucial decisions about what next to do;
or how to have meaningful relationships with those close to you.
He tells us plainly in the Bible that He will not resent it if you ask Him to show you what He wants you to do next.

That is such a wonderful thought!
However, there are conditions: if your faith in Him isn't fixed and unwavering; that is, if you don't trust Him wholeheartedly to answer you, then you will receive no solid answer.
This means that you can't believe TODAY that He will answer you, and then change your stance tomorrow and NOT believe that He will answer you.
That kind of attitude means you are looking in two different directions at the same time. Anyone can see that is a recipe for disaster!
So, when you want to know God's way forward for you, get up every morning and declare this:

O GOD, my heart is fixed and steadfast, in the confidence of faith;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises, even with all the faculties and powers of one created in Your image! . . .
For Your mercy and loving-kindness are great and high as the heavens!
Your truth and faithfulness reach to the skies!
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let Your glory be over all the earth.
Psalm 108:1,4,5   (Amplified Bible)

See you tomorrow, God willing,
so we can continue knowing the Lord together!
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
