Food for Thought


I subscribe to a daily devotional from the folks at Lead Like Jesus. This was from today’s. Food for thought….

Most of us will go to great lengths to ask God to go along with our plans. We spend time thinking about and pleading for God to do what we think is best. But how often do we go to God to ask Him what He thinks is best? Are we as focused on hearing God’s thoughts and plans as we are on telling Him ours? Are we as passionate about pursuing His vision as we are on pursuing our own?

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. —Colossians 4:2

  1. “What we read, watch, and listen to has a profound effect on our hope.”

    Ledwith, Daniel (2011-01-27). Rest in the Shadow of the Almighty: Discover the Joy that Is found Living Under the Sovereignty of God (p. 57). CreateSpace. Kindle Edition.

    This is absolutely so real. And specially links itself to this post–what is God’s thinking about what I choose to listen to, read, and otherwise put into my brain?? If I want His thoughts to be my thoughts, then I must be circumspect about what I’m putting into the kettle!

  2. I heard John McArthur say in a sermon once…”If you are in God’s will, what will He give you? His answer…everything you want!”

    After the congregation went silent, he explained. He basically said if we got in line with God, our wanter would be right and we would be wanting what God want us to want. Something like that. He explained it much more eloquently.

    Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart…very paraphrased LOL.
