God's work, God's way

You will go in and take the land from nations that practice magic and witchcraft. But the Lord your God won’t allow you to do those things. ~ Deuteronomy 18:14 (CEV)

Paul writes: We have not stopped praying for you since the first day we heard about you. In fact, we always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives. Then you will live a life that honors the Lord, and you will always please him by doing good deeds. You will come to know God even better. ~ Colossians 1:9-10 (CEV)

The only way to truly serve the Lord is to do things his way.
Lord, you have shown over and over again that you are the only one worth serving. And that is what I want to do. But I do have a mind of my own and too many times I try to accomplish your goals in my own way. As such it really ends up being about me. Forgive me and continue to realign my heart with yours. I'm going to go about your business in your way. Amen.
