Nunsy and I are at a Minister’s Conference this week, but it is a conference that we nearly did not come to.
Due to various reasons (or maybe I should call them excuses) we had planned not to come, but closer to the event I felt the Lord prompting me to go.
I didn’t listen to Him at first, but eventually did and as Nunsy was being promoted as well we decided to come.
And I am so glad we came; I have just listened to the best teaching I have ever heard.
Or maybe I should say superb teaching that spoke right into my heart about my current situation.
The Lord knew what the pastor was going to preach and He also knew that I needed to hear it, so He prompted me to come.
He knew what I needed far more than I did.
If I had listened to my own thoughts, if I had leaned on my own understanding I would have missed a teaching that I believe is about to transform my ministry and my church.
We must get to a mind-set where we listen to the Lord more than ourselves.
We must get to a stage where we trust Him and what He says more than what we want.
I’m sure you’ve done things in your life that were wrong and say to yourself, “I knew the Lord was telling me not to do that”.
We need to get to the place in our life where we listen to Him and obey Him before we do the stupid things!
I am so grateful that we came to this conference, but am also very aware that I almost missed it due to my own thoughts and wants.
Please listen to my heart when I tell you to take everything to the Lord and listen to Him, I would not want you to miss out on what the Lord has for you.
Listen to Him, trust Him and obey Him; He knows what is best for you as well as knowing what is best for me.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you always want what is best for me, and thank you that your plan and purpose for my life is so much better than anything I could come up with”.
Proverbs 3 v 5 and 6…..Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths
