Who among you likes for things to always go your way?
We all have at some point in our lives. I know I’ve had my seasons of asking God to do things—my way. Unfortunately, there’s a problem with—myway. The problem lies with our limited knowledge of what’s ahead.
But, Father God, being All-knowing, has the foreknowledge of what’s best for our lives. God knows what we need.
And in, Romans chapter 8, verses 26-28, we find Apostle Paul teaching a valuable lesson. We don’t know what to pray, but the Holy Spirit does. We need to live with His leading—even in prayer.
We all have a past. And past mistakes and bad decisions can hold us captive. And much like the children of Israel, those former things tag along for the ride as we travel into what’s next. So, it can keep us going in circles.
In fact, it’s those mistakes of the past that can hinder us from seeing what lies ahead—something new.
Thus, God wants us to forget past mistakes, and look to those new mercies which are available each morning. And not only that, He is working on something new.
