There’s a reason I read devotionals on a regular basis. It’s because I often pick up gems of excellent inspiration from them. I was reading one from Charles Stanley today. I was very much inspired, and I now share it with you.
In the entry it mentions that when we encounter difficult situations, we ask the wrong question. We tend to ask, “what can I do to make it better?” However, Dr. Stanley provides an excellent alternative. Here is his suggestion… “In a spirit of faith, instead ask ‘God what are YOU going to do?'”
What an empowering reminder that is! God regularly invites us to cast our cares upon Him and ask for assistance. Why not take Him up on it?
I recommend you take hold of this mindset during difficult times. Or take it as you pray about your greatest wishes being fulfilled. Yes, we have to do something. However, if you first prayerfully ask God to do his part, your steps will be much more simple and productive.
I remind you again. Ask God…”what are you going to do today?” Faithfully put the situation in His hands and enjoy the corresponding peace and power you experience. Please share your successes. Have an excellent day 🙂
