"And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your desire with
good things." Isaiah 58:11
Daily Express: We must have walking faith instead of just a talking faith.
And we must courageously walk in the direction that God guides.
There are times when a new direction you have chosen to follow does not meet the approval of those close to you. There may be criticism of your choice, causing you concern, for you want to be considerate of your family and friends. Yet you must follow your own inner guidance in your search for spiritual fulfillment.
The author Imelda Shanklin has suggested that, "Few criticisms will be
made of your faith if you really know your faith and consistently live it.
The world is little interested in what you believe. It is tremendously
interested in what your belief causes you to do."
In most cases, the change for good in your life resulting from your choice
will be evidence enough that you have made the right decision. You can
help those who have been concerned by blessing them in your prayers and knowing that they, as you, are being guided by God in the way that is best for them.
In Isaiah 45:2 our Bible states, "I will go before you and level the
Many of us are facing a mountain of a problem and seeking guidance on how to remove that mountain.
When you let go and let God, you open the way for God's perfect path to be shown to you. You align yourself with all the good that God is. With God guiding you, you instinctively know that whatever action you take will be the right action.
You will be guided to do that which will insure perfect
health, that which will bring about prosperity, that which will promote
harmony, that which will help you to serve in whatever capacity God
intends. You will let God fulfill God's good purpose - through you. You
will act in accordance with God's direction.
This is a huge decision because it involves change. Just knowing that God is opening new ways to you and enlarging the scope of your life is a
Sometimes we think we want things to change; we want things to be
different. But when change comes, we may find that we are fearful of it or resistant to it.
Why do you want change? Because you want to make conditions better for yourself and others; you want to expand your opportunities; you want to increase your contribution to life.
Why then do we resist change when it presents itself? Probably because we are fearful of the unknown, the untried. As unsatisfactory as conditions may be, we may have become accustomed to them; we know what to expect.
This is, of course, a limiting outlook. It is easily overcome as we hold to our faith that, in any circumstance, we have nothing to fear because God is with us.
At all times, in all places, under all conditions, you are one with God.
God's Spirit is with you and gives you the needed courage, strength, and
power to overcome fear and to welcome change and find the good in it.
Always God is opening new ways to you and enlarging the scope of your
In our Bible it declares in Isaiah 42:9 "New things I now declare."
If you want something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done!
Following God's guidance things will be new; opportunities will be new;
health will be new; joy will be new; love will be new.
God's abundance will never cease.
Say this prayer today before thinking about any problem:
"God empowers, protects, surrounds, and infills me.
God radiates forth from me, clearing my way.
My way is paved with the good of God; nothing but good awaits me and mine.
My problem dissipates now before the radiant life of God.
My mind and body, in all circumstances, are cleansed, renewed, and regenerated into newness of life.
I proclaim with Jesus, "God and I are one."
The purifying, vitalizing, harmonizing life of God is active in every thought of my mind, creating for me a healthy life and perfect outcomes.
"Who forces time is pushed back by time;
who yields to time finds time on his side." The Talmud
