Verse of the Day – Jeremiah 10:23

I know, O LORD, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.

Jeremiah 10:23

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

While we may have goals and a sense of mission about our lives, our lives are not really ours to plan. Every day must be greeted as a gift from God. Every goal must ultimately be pursued to his glory. Every true sense of direction is a gift to us from our Father’s Word or his Spirit.

My Prayer…

Wise and loving Father, lead me by your Holy Spirit. Fill me with your holy wisdom. Guide me into a more complete understanding of your will for my life. Please give me the wisdom to live each day with character and holy grace. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
