I'm sitting here... studying and praying, as I prepare to teach on Abigail next week... when I followed a little "rabbit trail"... to a study on David. And when I read it, I thought...
I know someone who needs to hear this...
and perhaps you do, too...
"Instead of taking matters into his own hands, David's first response after the death of Saul is to inquire of the Lord. He is following God, not following his own ambition, or even following God's plan. Often, we act as if God's primary interest is in us accomplishing His plan,
when in fact,
He wants us simply to follow Him.
The results are in His hands.
There is a difference between following God and following God's plan.
We must seek for God's will to be done in God's way, and that is what David did."
- David: A Heart to Follow God (Lesson 2) in Following God: Life Principles from the Kings of the Old Testament
So, today as you are struggling with God's will for your life... I want you to consider... are you more concerned with following God's plan... or simply following God?
I'm right there with you, sisters!
