Lead Me, God: Teach me to do your will

Article By Empowering Everyday Women Ministries // Spiritual

Share We often ask the Lord to lead us, which is good—when we ask in the right context.

Here is what that means: When we ask Him to lead us, we are often asking Him to guide us on the path we have chosen for ourselves, whether it is His will or not. In our minds, we will make it God’s will, simply because we want it to happen.

We often delay God’s best and encounter many unnecessary troubles, because we won’t submit to His will. We want to try our way first, and if that doesn’t work, then we’ll go to Him in a heartfelt prayer, asking that He order our steps.

But when we say, “thy will be done,” we need to mean it.

So, today, let your prayer be Psalm 143:10 (NIV):

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”

James 1:22 tells us in the ESV to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only...” We must let go of our opposition to submission and ask the Lord that we not only hear His directives, but obey them.

If we would trust in God, and not our own plans, He would make our paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). And we might as well follow His leadership, because His plan will ultimately prevail (Proverbs 19:21).

When you are in God’s will, by His Spirit He will save you from situations you couldn’t extract yourself from in your own power, and open doors you couldn’t unlock. He will move mountains, calm storms, and lead you on smooth, level ground.

All it takes is surrender.

Make it easier on yourself and submit to the Lord. Listen when He speaks. Go whereever He sends you and things will go better for you. That is not to say you won’t go through anything, because that is contrary to the Word of God.

Psalm 34:19 says "Many are the afflictions of the righteous..."

So, again, you will go through somethings, but you won’t go through anything that isn’t necessary for maturing your character and moving you toward your destiny.

Pray this:

God, please teach me how to submit to Your will, so that I can travel along the path You have laid out for me and live the abundant life you have predestined for me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
